More George Carlson and his best remembered comic book creation, The Pie-Face Prince of Old Pretzelburg. Carlson always gave the young prince a healthy dose of mischief bordering on pure anarchy. Both stories today are from Jingle Jangle Comics No. 14, April 1945.
This Chauncey Chirp story is by Dave Tendlar. Like so many comic book artists of the era, Tendlar was primarily known as an animator. He animated and directed cartoons for Fleischer, Famous, Terrytoons, and Hanna-Barbera. Here we find a nice, round style with some sweet, easily-overlooked draftsmanship. Note the old fellow fishing on pages two and three.
