Pure Walt Kelly Chritmas-time Goodness!!!
From 1942-1949 Dell Comics issued annual "Santa Claus Funnies". Walt Kelly fresh from working at the Walt Disney studios and pre-Pogo the Possum fame was a Dell stallwart who infused his natural-intricate-yet-fun cartoony style into fantasy stories which makes for fun whimsy.
You can stare at some of these pages for hours...and I have. If you enjoy this post, take a look over at the "Mail It To Team-Up" blog for "Santa Claus Funnies" #2
Here's "Santa Claus Funnies" #4 (Dell 4 Color #91) from 1945, chock full of Kelly's drawing and writing, Santa Claus, talking animals and a trip with Alice into Wonderland.
