Nutsy Squirrel-Rube Grossman-1955

The late Jerry Bails---who knew this sort of thing--credits the writing on this National/DC funny animal story to Woody Gelman. Gelman, through his work at Topps and as founder of Nostalgia Press a decade later, would go on to have a significant impact on American pop culture before his death in the late seventies. Art here is by Rube Grossman who drew many of DC's funny animal strips and may be best remembered for the annual RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER comics. He uses some clever fourth wall breaking ideas in this particular story.
