My father was a cartoonist. So, I have a better than average knowledge of comic and cartoon artists from the 'good old days'. However, even I had a hard time caring about "Famous Cartoonists" because most of the folks featured here I am not all that familiar with nor did I care about them. Sure, I recognized Milt Caniff and Walt Disney in this one...and a few others. But mostly it's like going to a total stranger's house and watching their home movies! In addition, even if you ARE aware of who all these folks and all their strips are, there is a huge problem....it is all presented so quickly and so little is said about each of the men that it is tiresome instead of educational or interesting.

By the way, the announcer, Don Wilson, was famous for being the announcer and sometime actor on "The Jack Benny Program".
