The Yum-Yum Kid

Thursday Comic Strip Day.

To go with yesterday's Dave Gerard cartoons, here is an overview of his strip Will-Yum, which started in the early fifties and ran until the late sixties. As cute as it may seem to us now, in it's own time it may have gone on a bit too long and have been a bit old hat towards the end.
