Anyone remember CARtoons magazine??

Years ago when I was just a Lad, I read Cartoons magazine everytime I could find it for sale! It was the MAD magazine for Hot Rodders at the time! Being a wreckless kid, those magazines didn't fair well and are LONG since gone!! My favorite issue had a "pickup pulling a sprintcar and trailer, trying to avoid a black cat crossing the road" on the front cover! Does anyone have or remember that issue? Does anyone have any issues that they would part with? ( I'm not rich so don't get silly---it's just an old magazine gatherin' dust) Did CARtoons have a bit about Hawg Rider and Ol' Poop in every issue? Or was that a different magazine all together?

I was one of those kids (read teenager) who could never get enough of George Trosley and Cartoons magazine. My business name Klassik Kartoonz is a kind of tribute to the man and the mag.

We didnt always get a copy for sale here and I dont remember the one with the sprintcar on it's cover.

I hold Trosley in my memory as a auotmotive artist god and try to emulate his work in my Kartoonz. Go to www.georgetrosley.com as from memeory there nay have been back issues available there.

Get this little did most people realise that Trosley was also a regular artist for Hustler Magazine doing a majority of their ribald toons.

Crass and Bernie were the regular characters in Cartoons btw.

I am just a wealth of knowledge TEE HEE

I downloaded the samples from the Hot Draw CD page on his site and gave em to my son, he loves them but hasnt quite got the hang of it yet. Give it time though he is already ahead of where I was at his age with drawing cars and stuff.

Junior Klassik is coming lol

Got three front covers scanned into my gallery.
Had them now, 38 years, bought them new and one has the UK price on it.Found them hidden in my mothers house.

(tried to post them here but it wonīt work)

Try www.draglist.com/cartoons and see some of Pete Millarīs stuff.

I have a couple but not that issue. They're tucked away in the attic space somewhere, along with some of my old comic books that my mom didn't manage to find and throw away. My very oldest ones she trew out. Even at a young age I knew they'd be worth something when I grew up but you know moms. 'LET'S THROW IT OUT IT'S GARBAGE!" I had a lot of number 1 issues when I was a kid.

Thanks Kevin, I should have known you or Weimer would find them on Ebay! COOL, volume1 issue1, I'm off to Ebay!

I guess the Hawg Rider and Ol' Poop were caracters were from a different magazine from the early 70's ( motorcycle cartoons?) anyone know?

Remember

I got a lot of laughs out of those old mags. Remember Philbert Desenex (aka WonderWarthog) I also remember a contest they had to name his girlfriend .The winning name.....Cathaway Quensana .
Unk and the Varmints were my favorites though . Rick
P.S. Thanx for the memories!!!

Long live Crass and Bernie! Trosley still does toons for various mags. My ex brother in law used to work at Hustler back in the late 70's, early 80's and he met George and George gave him an original hand signed piece of art. I'm not sure if he still has it, or not.

Heh, Odd rodder. I forgot all about Hawg Rider and Ol' Poop. I think they were in Cycle Toons. I may even have some of those in the attic too. I'll have to go up dig'em out and reminesce some time.

Digging through the website that Kev. put up, I found I used 2 of those pics in my scrapbook I have on my old 38. Cool. I didn't realize it was the same artist.
