Teen Spirit

Monday cartoon Day.

In 1962 former Hank Ketcham assistant Lee Holey started his own daily panel called Ponytail. Like Denis the Menace Ponutail's daily gags were expended in to a lively Sunday. Unlike Denis the menace Holley seems to have drawn this himself. At least at the start. Ponytail had a long life and is still being published in Holland. Sometime the translation has to be adapted (like when a LP disc player has to be introduced as a retro gadget), but the gag are the same. So for translator Thom Roep and all fans of teen art, here are some of the earliest samples.
