Mo’ From Moby!

Our last post focused on John Huston’s 1956 film MOBY DICK.

Twelve years later, in 1967, Moby was still impacting our popular culture, as seen by the following:

Hanna-Barbera’s version of “Moby Dick” – with two kids named “Tom” and “Tub” and a seal named “Scooby”. …Um, they’d get “Scooby” right two years later, by morphing him into a cowardly Great Dane.

Disney/ Gold Key comics character “Moby Duck” was introduced in DONALD DUCK # 112 (Cover date March 1967) and graduated to his own 30 issue series.

Ah, there was nothing like the sixties! Gotta love ‘em!
