So I stopped in an antique store at lunchtime today. My eyes about bugged out when I saw this random stack of old comic books for $1.00 each. How could I pass by these? Check ’em out for yourself!
Yup, Davy…Davy Crockett. The Fess Parker Davy Crockett is still a legendary figure here at the Johnson Family Compound. Get yer coonskin cap on and give ’em what fer, Davy!!
Look, kids – it’s Tom & Jerry! While Tom and Jerry wasn’t my favorite cartoon series, I still ate a few bowls of Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs on Saturday morning in front of the tube with these characters. What made this find even sweeter was the cool Juicy Fruit ad on the back! It’s like Bo Diddley said…”You can’t judge a book by looking at the cover…”
Had to make this one big so you could read the thing. Don’t be a Dopey Dan, be a Safety Sam!!! Oh yeah, and remind Mom to bring home a “good supply” of Juicy Fruit today!
Finally, check it out…1948, daddy-o! What a find, complete with a perfectly-coiffed handsome hero in a bubble-helmet diving suit. Hey, man, where’s the air hose? And there’s always some pesky shark guarding the treasure chest!!!
