Whew. Last one in this particular continuity. And actually, I was getting tired of typing 'February' under each strip.

Eeh! But No!

We're getting closer to ending this particular continuity, thank goodness. I dunno, Miz Beaver is just wearing thin on me.

And just so ya know, I'll post those Jan/Feb Sundays soon.

More or Less Magnificent

On this date back in '62 'twas a Sunday. And NOW, thanks to our Friend-in-Kelly 'Hun', we can fill in the blanks with a semblance of Sunday strips derived from his collection of flotsam and jetsam of original art scans and less than perfect digital scans of old microfiche.

I've been derelict in not sharing previous Sundays from that collection for January and February. Should I do a post catching up with those for all you completists out there?

And, as always, thanks HUN, for your commitment to Kelly!

Independent Hose Co

On this date, back in '62, was a Saturday, which is when Kelly would break continuity with a stand-alone strip for the sake of weekend subscribers only.

This looks like an ad for a hose company in Danbury, Connecticut.

Thing What's Wrong with Them Men

I love everything that Kelly ever did as a cartoonist, but to be perfectly honest, I'm a little tired of Miz Beaver at this point.

Them Blagstaggin' Google-Eyed, Sluff-Offin' Gol'Brickers!

I dedicate this post to Frits van der Waa, in Amsterdam, not because this strip is associated with him, but because he periodically sends me emails of appreciation and encouragement (his comments don't seem to have functionality on this site).

Mens Runs Away from Home

At some point in their lives, don't many folks (mens, womens & childrens) think of running away, even if just for a while, and then realize it's a package deal?

Nobody Knows Nothin'!

Kelly sorta ran this whole Miz Beaver thing into the ground, but then that was his prerogative, wasn't it?!

Nuts and Bolts

Another Sunday in 1962, so here's a Kelly specialty drawing.

Notice how the Rackety Coon Chile is miffed with the flea-bitten raccoon coat. And I'm assuming this is a dual-squirrel engine.

For better or worse: my shading.

Miz Beaver is pretty, um, frisky to be angling a alligator.

Rolling A-Head

This is what happens when you put together two extremely opposite personalities. They just cancel each other out. Some marriages are like that . . . so I've heard.

Simply RIPPING Anecdote

Porky's sense of humor, or lack of it, pops up periodically, and it's quite revealing to see that suicide is a way of 'life' for him.

Christmas Party

Today was a Sunday in 1962, so with the absence of having that strip, here is a Mad Magazine spread where Pogo, Albert and Churchy make a non-speaking appearance—all characters drawn by the master comics emulator Wally Wood.
