From 1972, Woody Woodpecker gets beaned (…or maybe “beaked”?). Probably an up-and-in ball by Pedro Martinez!
(Woody Woodpecker # 125)
And, from 1963 and the incomparable imagination of Silver Age DC Comics editor Julius Schwartz… it’s “Gorilla Wonders of the Diamond!”
A comic so wonderfully weird, I’ll simply let it speak for itself!
