A Merry Christmas from Stripper's Guide and the Chicago Tribune 'B' Listers
The Chicago Tribune ran a half page of Christmas wishes in their Sunday section on Christmas Day 1955. Nice enough, but where are Little Orphan Annie, Dick Tracy, Winnie Winkle, the Gasoline Alley gang, the Teenie Weenies, Moon Mullins .... I guess the 'A' listers got the day off!
Merry Christmas Stripper's Guide readers!
It is funny that these are specifically the second team of ChiTrib characters, like it was on purpose. Is it possible there's another special cartoon of just the top drawer stars? Is there any significance that there's no copyright line anywhere? Maybe it's just for Tribune itself, as though the syndicate had many many clients, I'm guessing few would take ALL of these also rans.

Wish You Were Here, from Zim
Here's a Zim card published by the H.G. Zimmerman concern of Chicago. We've seen enough of these on the blog to know that finding one with correct colour registration is quite unusual. But here we have one that looks perfect!
I'm guessing that postcard senders were expected to fill in their location on the blank signpost; this card was postally unused, so it hasn't had the indignity of someone's scrawl added to it.
