Ending 2017 with some KING KONG related fun 'n games from the always great SUPER MAG mini kid's magazine, Vol. 1 #2 published in 1976, the same year the not so great big budget Dino DiLaurentis remake was unleashed upon the world.

Hope everyone had a great year, we'll be back in 2018 with lots more... see ya!

CARTOONIST: Irving "Roir" Roth

I don't know much about Irving Roth other than he had 3 brothers who were all popular cartoonists at the same exact time as well-- but boy oh boy do I ever love his stuff! It's loose and funny and looks like nobody else. This is another small sampling selection from the Merry-Go-Round Pictorial Review of the Year book published in 1947 (see my last post for more details.)

CARTOONISTS: Roy Nelson & Colin Allen

Found a super duper hardcover book collection recently called MERRY-GO-ROUND: Pictorial Review of the Year, with contents originating from Pictorial Review, as featured in 1940's Sunday Magazines syndicated all over the USA. A sort of "best of" of stories about life, love, and career, with hilariously fascinating male fabrications concerning all sort of "facts" on friends and family, as well as touchy subjects ranging from why women shouldn't wear slacks, to how much more intelligent men are than the opposite sex. Ummm, ok... did I mention this was published in 1947? Each chapter is illustrated by a variety of exceptionally competent cartoonists like D. B. Holcomb, John Buckley, Michael Berry, Irving Roir, etc... (I'll be featuring a few of these in our next post as well) and two of the best, in my humble opinion, and thankfully with the largest assortment of brilliant examples in said book, are Roy Nelson and Colin Allen. Incredibly fun stuff. See you in a few days for more!

Punk Moon

Cool mask I found for only $1 at an antique mall (thank you Post Halloween Sale!) which reminds me of the Dead Moon (band) logo quite a bit, or even a scary version of McDonald's "Mack Tonight" commercial character from the 80's. It's weirdly huge in size, and very heavy due to the extra thick high quality rubber. I spent a few days looking it up and trying to find basically any info about it, with nothing to go on but Paper Magic Group 2000 molded onto the back, and then finally after much online digging, I stumbled upon an Illusive Concepts catalog from the same year that finally revealed to me the name as "Punk Moon."

Disney Haunted House Puzzle

Another recently rad antique mall find was this super fun Disneyland "Haunted House" puzzle from either the 60's or early 70's. There's Mickey and Goofy, and wait a sec-- I recognize a few of those ghosts! Saaaaaay... this isn't just any old "haunted house" --this is the HAUNTED MANSION! My favorite ride in the entire world and there's actually a 100 piece puzzle for it! (FYI: I counted the pieces and turns out there's actually 104!)

For another turns out, there's even a HM puzzle HERE, this time with 1000 pieces and featuring the iconic park ride poster art.

At Last-- Canned Sex!

Found this funny little tin can novelty gag at the antique mall last week, there's no date on it but the artwork would suggest 60's or 70's, as does the slight ring of rust around the can top and bottom edges. And get a load of those ingredients, haha. It doesn't open, (and like some actual sex, feels totally empty inside), but it does have an area on the label where you can address it and mail it to someone in dire need of some canned action! I wonder if they sold this in a "tall boy" version too?

You Eat Too Much

Okay, maybe you do eat too much, or maybe you don't-- but just maybe everyone did this passed holiday and that is where AEET comes in! Yep, I don't point fingers or throw blame on anyone's plate, I just deliver the fun art and maybe a few helpful lil tid bits of whatever may assist in leaving a healthy, lasting impression upon you. So don't fret, just check out the previous post HERE for more info on this 50's Better Homes and Gardens Diet Book in case you somehow missed it, because, you know, maybe you were distracted by pies-- or maybe you were exercising?

I really don't care...
