Ted Key: Ready for Easter

Cartoonist Ted Key brings an imaginative use of color to a mostly black and white cartoon. It was published in The Saturday Evening Post of  April 17, 1954.

Note:  My thanks to Dick Buchanan for providing us with this scan from the legendary Dick Buchanan Cartoon Clip Files. Dick contributes regularly to Mike Lynch Cartoons, most recently a fab post entitled, "From the Dick Buchanan Files: Favorite 50s Gag Cartoons 1950 - 1959." He's cooking with gas, Daddy-O!

Ted Key, the creator of Hazel, is new to the blog. Ink Spill includes him in the One Club, an exclusive group of cartoonists who have published one and only one cartoon in the New Yorker.

Does anyone have the page number for this cartoon? Enquiring minds and obsessive-compulsive bloggers want to know.
