  1. The Tuesday car in the Keate cartoon (“Oh, Tex…”) almost makes me think of an Edsel! ’59 would have been the right year for it!

  2. These cartoons are something else this week! Number 5 down ‘Monique’ is my favorite this week. VERY large and in full, rich color. The readers in 1958 must have been shocked. It almost enters Playboy territory! As for the funniest, I’d have to go for for number 10 down from ’56. A diamond so huge she needed a wheelbarrow. I can picture and hear Elizabeth Taylor really laughing at that one.
