"Peanuts the Monkey" (cont.)

Here's some nice funny animal hi-jinks straight out of Vol. 1 #1 of Punch and Judy Comics (Hillman) circa 1944. Drawn by the late, great Milton Stein, a New York illustrator & animator who worked on & off at Terrytoons and produced tons of comics for Vince Fago's shop in the early '40s for Timely, and then Stein worked for ACG/Standard for many years on "Supermouse" through the '50s. "Supermouse" actually predates "Mighty Mouse" (That's why they changed the name to "Mighty Mouse" after the first cartoon). He apparently committed suicide in the early '70s.
