The Jack Bradbury Index (Comic Art of Jack Bradbury), confirms that Beany and Cecil creator, Bob Clampett, specifically requested that Jack Bradbury do the art for a series of Dell B&C comics in the early 1950s (thanks, Joel!). Bradbury, of course, responded with the master's touch.
The same Bradbury index reports Clampett wrote this story, but the Grand Comic Book Database (GCD) gives the nod to Don R. Christensen. Either way, the story moves along smooth as silk with brilliant wordplay reading like a child's book of rhymes. This is from Four Color No. 477, June 1953.
