Question for All You Cartoon Collectors!



OK so I've been doing some looking around. Bosko apparently had a comic book and I'm wondering if any of you know of additional covers you could share! Also Barney Bear had his own series apparently. I can't find a single recollection of the comic on the internet though. Maybe they were printed elsewhere in the world. I have several Adventures of Tom Cat comics from Australia. Maybe they came from there. Do any of you have the Bosko or Barney Bear comics you could share? I'm aware of Our Gang and Tom and Jerry comics with Barney. I'm specifically referring to those titled "Barney Bear" referring to the MGM character.

Porky's Hot Dog Intake

Western Publishing definitely isn't free of cannibalism when it comes to comics featuring Porky Pig. These are just some of the covers in which Porky is either selling or eating hot dogs.

Speedy Gonzales Strange Origin Story

OK, so I love watching Cartoon Network Promos.There's something interesting about Huckleberry Hound and Fred Flintstone getting no service at a store, Tom chasing Speedy Gonzales, and a cartoon sidekick nightclub. Here though is a very weird origin story of Speedy Gonzales. It aired in Cartoon Network Latin America. This aired after Speedy was taken off the Cartoon Network in the US. This only aired in the Latin America broadcast feed. The second video is a promo featuring the secret love affair of Race Bannon (Jonny Quest) and Betty Rubble.
