Animation: Huckleberry Hound Weekly

Another great item lent to us to digitize by my good friend Kent Butterworth… This time it’s a British newsstand comic from March 28th, 1964 featuring the Hanna-Barbera Characters…

The interesting thing about this piece isn’t so much the quality of the artwork… it’s pretty generic… it’s the quantity of it. I eliminated a few pages of puzzles, games and stories, but the majority of the sheets are devoted to large, full-page comic stories. You would never see such a generous collection of comics in a publication that sells for as little as this today. But there is wisdom behind the generosity… The best way to get kids to watch the Huckleberry Hound Show (and buy Kelloggs cereal) is to engage them with the characters and situations. What better way to do that than a loss-leader newsstand comic?

Illustration: Great LP Record Jackets

Record Cover

Animation Resources volunteer and resident video guru, Eric Graf has amassed an amazing collection of novelty and children’s records from the 50s and 60s. He brought a stack by the other day to be scanned. Check out how these covers make you want to rush to your phonograph to play the record. Tiny, badly designed CD and DVD covers just don’t have the same impact. Thanks, Eric for sharing these with us!

Every once in a while, my pal JoJo Baptista busts his bankroll on old moldy newsprint. He’s generously offered to share his treasures with all of us. Thanks, JoJo!
