Jungle Street by Don Elliot, Cover Art by Harold W. McCauley

Harold W. McCauley, was a comic illustrator from the 50’s to 70’s, was something of a master of the female figure. Harold specialized in good girl art (GGA –yes this is an actual acronym), pioneering how women in comics eventually became shown in a provocative light. His work is something to be considered great at the very least.

No one at Cartoon Hangover or Frederator tells potential creators to what to create. Other than ‘comedy cartoons’ we don’t direct towards animals (though we seem to liking cats lately), humans, or rocket ships. That way, our shorts output over the years has reflected the future of cartoons, rather than it’s past. At least, I think so. 

Anyhow, science fiction has been a particularly strong strain the last couple of years. Funny science fiction, to be sure, with characters that people love, but sci-fi, for sure. 

Hence, our postcard imagery.

If you can find them, I strongly recommend the Toffee stories by Charles F. Myers. They’re not, as you might guess, about a giantess terrifying people (Toffee is of normal size). These stories are about a sexy woman who is created from the imagination of the most boring banker on the planet, and who appears to add chaos and ribald humor to his life. Definitely some of the funniest stuff from the Golden Age.
