Custer Cat & Cheesy by Rube Grossman!

Hi, Kids! Happy New Year!

Today we we have two last stories from Animal Antics (July-August 1948) with a couple from long-time DC funny animal cartoonist, Rube Grossman.

Like so many before him in the Golden Age of comics, Mr. Grossman began his professional career as an adversiting illustrator and animator, working for Fleischer in the 1930s. In the 40s and 50s he worked for DC, and drew hundreds of stories. He became best known for his work drawing "Biggety Bear" in the Peter Porkshop comic. Other characters often identified with Mr. Grossman were "Roly and Poly," "Ozzy Owl," and the character team we see here, "Custer Cat and Cheesy the Mouse."

As his career moved into the 60s, he returned to animation and saturday morning cartoons, directing "Felix the Cat" and The "Mighty Hercules"

I will see you all again very soon. Until then, I hope you are all warm, safe, and happy! --Your friend, Mykal

That wraps it up for this post, kids! Next, I will bring you some work from the legendary Jack Bradbury, showing his stuff with some Disney characters! Oh, what he heck. Let's toss in one last advertisement page from this issue of Animal Antics for Thom McAn Shoes!
