This comic book story by Lou Trakis appeared as filler pages in Katzenjammer Kids issue #20 published by Standard Comics in the Spring of 1952.
I don't know anything about the artist, but he sure knew how to draw comics with a carefree, breezy look!

I just really enjoy the loosey-goosey, bouncy-silly look of these drawings. After scanning through hundreds of pages of old comics, these just jumped right out at me.
The artist is obviously very skilled, but he's not slick in the slightest. That's a good thing.
I love the goofy faces with the wonky expressions. The faces of all the characters looks the same, but he makes up for it by giving each one a very distinctive costume and hat. Very primitive...like a Bazooka Joe comic.
No "art" here, no subtle characterization.
Nothing new or groundbreaking.
But it made me smile. I hope it made you smile, too.
