Happy Thanksgiving 2015!

Happy Thanksgiving 2015! 

From what can only be the Bob Clampett or early Tex Avery version of Bugs Bunny (back when he could also LOSE, rather than always win), and TIAH Blog, Happy Thanksgiving to one and all! 

This cover is from Dell Comics’ LOONEY TUNES AND MERRIE MELODIES # 26 (Cover Date: December, 1943). Sure wish we coulda seen the cartoon that might have been made of this!  Bugs and a crafty turkey continually turning the (dinner) tables upon one another for Thanksgiving dinner! 

Note producer Leon Schlesinger’s name at the lower right of the comic book cover. 

G-g-gosh, Leon sure d-d-drew that cover w-w-w-well!

Happy Thanksgiving, Joe! I hope yours was a good and satisfying one, as mine was. Best to you and your family.

Never saw that Bugs Bunny cover before...good stuff! (My oldest Looney Tunes comic book is a 1945 issue with a plug to buy war bonds on the cover. The interior layout is quite different from the comics of the later 40's and early to mid 50's. I was surprised.)

Enjoy your weekend!

Those early LOONEY TUNES are just as much a delight as the corresponding early issues of WDC&S! Just not anywhere as widely known (or appreciated), alas!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! And, yes… It’s been a good two Thanksgiving days thus far – with every intention of making it four!
