Jack and Jill (October 1971) PART TWO

Okay, the scanner was simply unplugged (sumtimez I iz rill dumm) --anyway, here's the second half of the October 1971 issue of Jack and Jill Magazine, see our last post for the other ghostly goodies by clicking HERE! In this half we have actual full spooky stories, more games, masks, and LOTS of super cute illustrations of black cats, witches, kids in costumes, etc! Hope everyone is enjoying Halloween in April-- sometimes holidays are too far away for my liking!

Holy cow the Fantasia story with the magic spoon is terrific. I would love to see that animated, the idea of the spoon making all sorts of thrillingly awful food at the command of someone who can't cook is just great comedy. And it makes the scary final reveal of the scissors too terrifying to contemplate. But I want to see that sequel animated too, of course.

I also loved the cute black kitten story, but it deserves a more realistic ending:

"I've already named him," Lisa said. "He's black and he turned up on Halloween. So his name is Princess Fun Size Milk Duds."

Then everybody laughed and mom put the cat in the laundry room.

Poor Marilyn, left out of the family again, its a shame everyone treated her so badly due to her looks.
