Huckleberry Hound has a boner?

I mean; What were they thinking? Ok, so it’s back in 1959 and nobody in 1959 has a boner…right? Well maybe they didn’t call it that or…maybe they did…

Western Publishing had a great tun of Four Color Comics from 1942 to 1962 with a total of 1,354 issues. No way this could happen today, especially at Marvel Comics where their them of this decade is “relaunch every year”!!! But, I digress…

In Four Color Comics #1054, published  in 1959 has a one pager (inside front cover) starring Huckleberry Hound in “Huckleberry Hound’s Snow Boner“. Yikes! Pete Alvarado is credited with the pencils but what I really want to know is, who was in charge of the script, lettering and editing! The gag wasn’t too funny in 1959, but it’s pretty hilarious now!

Here is the one-page gag in all it’s hilarity:

Ok kids, you shouldn’t be reading any more Huckleberry Hound stories!

Lucky that belt buckle was drawn strategically!
