No Benedict

Tuesday Comic Strip Day.

Henri Arnold was a cartoonist and comic strip artist, whose name I have seen on several cartoons during the fifties. He was involved in cartooning in the army and at some point during the fifties he did a Sunday only series for The New York Sunday News about an army outfit. It was like Beetle Bailey, but focussed more on the officers and less on the soldiers. Had a touch of Bilko as well. Like Bumper to Bumper, a Sunday only for the same paper by Gil Fox, it ran only in the Sunday News, but maybe not as long. I see online that Arnold later was responsible for the cartoon part of The Scrambled Word Game, a part of the daily newspaper I always skip, I have to say.
