The Christmas stories continue with this wild tale wherein Porky invents a jet propelled pogo stick for the Christmas toy market! It comes from Four Color No. 1064, December 1959. The mighty fine pencils come curtesy of John Carey (inks unknown).I love when funny animal stories have a few human beings thrown into the mix. In "A Joyful Toy," Porky and his brood are the only funny animal characters in the story! Here, a family of pigs can go to stores, interact with human friends and neighbors, and enjoy Christmas without causing a ripple! Wouldn't that be a lovely world? Don't forget the two puzzle pages at the end of the post, both drawn by Tony Strobl. Happy Holidays to all you good, little pigs and kids out there!
