Ted Key: Leftovers

So…what's in your lunchbox today? Dick Buchanan has contributed a scan of a long-forgotten 1951 color gag cartoon from The American Magazine. The artist is Ted Key, famous for creating the panel cartoon Hazel as well as the characters Peabody & Sherman for Jay Ward.

Note:  My sincere thanks to the energetic Dick Buchanan for making his forty-fifth contribution to Attempted Bloggery! Go ahead, count 'em! Dick maintains the exhaustive Dick Buchanan Cartoon Clip Files from which he contributes regularly to Mike Lynch Cartoons, most recently an informative post entitled "From the Dick Buchanan Files: New Yorker Luminaries 1933 - 1942." 

By the way, Dick recently did some outstanding work researching John Gallagher and he should now be considered a leading authority on this gag cartoonist. Here are the gems he has uncovered:

John Gallagher Gag Cartoons 1951 - 1970

John Gallagher Part Two: 1000 Jokes! - Gag Cartoons 1954 - 1965

I'm happy to share some other recent favorite posts of his:

From the Dick Buchanan Files: Show Business Gag Cartoons 1945 - 1962

From the Dick Buchanan Files: Caption-less, Wordless Gag Cartoons 1946 – 1963

After that, I'm afraid you're on your own. By the way, Attempted Bloggery seeks other high-quality scans of long forgotten published rarities such as the one here by Ted Key.
