Our Gang #46

The interior covers of Our Gang with Tom #46 feature comics with a few of MGM's one-shot characters. The front interior features the two buzzards from Tex Avery's hilarious "What's Buzzin' Buzzard?" and the back stars the wolf, called El Wolfo here, from the Harman/Ising short "The Hungry Wolf". I don't have too many issues of Our Gang so I don't know if these guys made any other appearances or if any other characters were resurrected. Droopy usually gets the interior covers under the name Happy Hound. This comic if from 1948, about six to seven years after those two cartoons were released.

Whoa!!!!! I love the slick artwork here. Kinda reminds me of something John Stanley or Harvey Eisenberg might have come up with. They were great too.

Do you think that some of these old 40s Our Gang comics are available for purchase via Amazon, etc.? I'm kinda interested in seeing how those comedy shorts were translated into cartoon form.

There's a few Our Gang volumes out and the art is by Walt Kelly. They're definitely on Amazon. Though I think it's only Our Gang and none of the MGM cartoon characters.
