Here at TIAH Blog, whenever we spot an identifiable image of a COMIC BOOK appearing on a TV show, we like to make mention of it.HERE’S an instance of WALT DISNEY’S COMICS AND STORIES # 177 (June, 1955) seen on ALFRED HITCHCOCK PRESENTS.
Here’s the comic – and click on the Munsters image below for (hopefully) sufficient enlargement to allow you to see Eddie Munster reading a copy of YOGI BEAR # 19.
Note, too, that Herman is also reading a comic book, but it is unidentifiable to me. It’s certainly not a Gold Key, by the looks of it. …Anyone wanna take a crack at it?
Funny, you’d think Eddie would be reading a horror comic instead of Yogi Bear, but who am I to argue with the producers of THE MUNSTERS.
|Hey, Boob! Any tales of The Munsters in there?|
You might also figure that it should have been a WOODY WOODPECKER comic, as both Woody and THE MUNSTERS were produced by Universal Studios.
But, maybe it’s as simple as Gold Key also published THE MUNSTERS comic book, and some licensee reciprocity came into play.
|How come THEY get to have all the fun with an OCTOPUS, and WE just pose with shovels?|
…Or, maybe it just happened to be on sale around the Universal lot at the time of shooting.
|Just HANGIN' AROUND, Mr. Ranger, Sir!|
