Dan Gordon -- one of the greatest cartoonists ever!

Here are some amazing funny animal comics by Dan Gordon. These are from the ACG comic, Funny Films #1 from September, 1949.

The opening story features Puss & Boots in a hilarious cat-vs-dog comedy that transcends the cliches of the genre because of the absolute unbridled mayhem and unapologetic violence-for-the-gag's-sake. You can practically hear all the great sound effects of hammers hitting heads! And most of all...LOOK at those DRAWINGS!

Another Puss & Boots burlesque follows, and it's one of my favorites!
