But only in the spirit of fun, just for grins, and making sure everyone knows it is NOT the original!
You've seen this a lot of times, I bet, but not like this!
That had been the "splash page" for Sensation Comics #31, published in the summer of 1944, for the story "Grown-Down Land!"
I decided to see what it would look like if WW was wearing more abbreviated briefs, 1960's style, with more curves showing!
The art was by Harry G. Peter (I know, I know, shut up) with the writing from William Moulton Marston. In case you've ever been curious about the story, "Comic Vine" gives this synopsis:
Wonder Woman saves the Modern kids from their parents (because they don't like children), and when the kids don't wake up from sleeping, the Amazon Princess joins the kids in sleep and enters the kids’ dreamworld, called Grow-Down Land. Here Wonder Woman eventually helps bring the Modern family together by showing the parents how to act like children.
Tonight, I'll post a new New Year's Eve WolfieToon!
I think it's probably the best one I've ever done, which may not be saying much.
But you can decide for yourself. Here are a select few!
That might play better if you know it's a parody of the most famous celebrity you've never heard of! Kay Kyser and his band had one of the most popular radio shows of the '30's and '40's! But he retired in 1950, and the TV generation didn't ever see him. He and the gang did make a few movies, though-- check out the YouTube stuff!
When I originally presented this cartoon, one viewer was very confused as to our Spanker's identity; is he one of the party's Hired Hands, and if so, just what were his hands hired to do?
Or is he perhaps our Spankee's date, who was trying to find a quiet, out-of-the-way place for some celebratory frolic and/or discipline?
The cartoonist seems to have been too absorbed with that delectable derriere to bother with any clear storytelling.
No doubt about what's happening there! And what a sweet couple, did you notice that they have framed their child's water-color painting of a horse or a wolf or a big crab-spider, and hung it over the fireplace, instead of putting it right in, where it probably really should go?
