Harvey Eisenberg - Super Rabbit #12

Here's a story by Harvey Eisenberg from Super Rabbit #12 published in 1948. I was unaware that Eisenberg drew for Timely Comics so this story was a real treat. Especially in comparison to the art in the rest of the comic. From the first page I could tell by the posing and staging that it was Eisenberg, only after looking up info on Super Rabbit did I find out he worked on some of the comics. Guess I'll have to start hunting down Timely comics now in hopes of finding even more of his work.

Tex Avery - "The Farm Of Tomorrow"

I know this cartoon is weaker than the most of Tex's shorts at MGM. Some of the gags are so corny they're almost embarrassing. I think even Tex would have admitted that, why else end it with the "Hootenanny" gag. The best or worst (depending on your sense of humor) of the bunch. But what I do love about it is Gene Hazelton's designs. That alone is enough reason for me to watch it over and over.
