Silly Fillers

Tuesday Comic Strip Day.

One of the main attractions in the Fun Book sections I am showing on Mondays is the work of Bill Keane, especiall his Silly Philly and Merrie Morthquakers series. Later, he was allowed to turn both into syndicated Sunday features along with his new series Channel Chuckles. Even later, when he developed The Family Circle he incorperated many of the elements of these two early strips into it's Sunday page. But here you have a couple of Silly Philly's from all through the fifties.

That second-to-last strip was an early incarnation of Keane's pun-oriented strip "Sideshow."
