Test Stees

Monday Cartoon Day.

In the fifties and sixties most funny comic strips were drawn by fomer cartoonists. It seems as if everyone who made cartoons for a living was allowed to have a go at it. Some cartoonists cou;dn't come up with a concept, though and tried to do a daily or weekly cartoon series. The weekly series often took the form of a collection of cartoons held together by a weak story or a theme. This effort was at least done in 1959. I had never seen or heard from it's maker, but according to one internet source, we are talking about John Stees, who did this feature between 1958 and 1969. My samples just happen to all be from the same year.
