    When Dr. Seuss Went to War!!!
    Little known side to our lovable seller of silly rhymes for kids. At one time he was a well known political cartoonist who did NOT pull punches. Some of these are pretty rugged and very reflective of the times. I never knew this about the man and most of his stuff hasn't been seen in half a century. Surprised McCarthy never went after him but he might have.

    That's very interesting. I don't have time scroll through them while I'm at work. I just looked at the first four, but you can definately see his style of drawing characters in these works.

    Hanna-Barbera was also notable for the cartoons that they created during this era, including several Bugs Bunny cartoons that were banned. I remember seeing a cartoon that showed Daffy Duck as Hitler at an animation festival back in the days when I was into that sort of thing. It was never aired on public TV.
