Comics Review: “Yogi Bear and the Awful It” (1959)
Then, there was an original Yogi, and the book closed with an original Huck – that was built on the oft-used premise of “If you need me, just whistle!” – with Huck helping a little bird by pounding on a fox, like the later Yakky Doodle, Chopper, and Fibber Fox.
Here’s what I wrote about that Yogi story, back in 2001:
“Yogi Bear and the Awful It” 8 pg. Story by Vic Lockman art by the great Harvey Eisenberg.
“Yay! It works every time! I get the animals curious and confused… and have time to take a shot at ‘em! ”
“You can say what you want about this awful ‘It’ suit…but I say it makes an awfully nice hibernating quarters! ZZZZZZ!”
