Howdy's Partner

Saturday Leftover Day.

I was first attracted to Chad Grothkopf's Howdy Doodie because for four or five episodes in January 1951, the Sunday only strip was written by Stan Lee. But looking at the other epsides (espeicall the three iers) I strated to like it more and more. Grothkopf had a remrkable style and when he didn't hack the pages out, it was really something.

The bottom strip appears to be Jack Davis.

The Howdy Doody comic book was the first one based on a TV show... perhaps the same is true of the comic strip.

Yep, I wanted to add the note that however great Chad Grothkopf was, I would have loved to see jack Davis' version. On the other hand, he may never had joined Mad if he got that account.
