Beany And Cecil's Babysitting Service

If there's anything I like better than a whimsical old Beany And Cecil story, it's one that features not only a hammer banging infant, but also Dishonest John in drag. This comic is from Dell's Beany And Cecil #2 (November 1962). Nyah-ah-ah! By the way, I would REALLY love it if someone could identify the artist.


  1. I'm hesitant to say it, but they sure look like Chuck Jones's work

  2. I am 55 years old and used to love watching the Beanie and Cecil cartoons on TV here in Australia when I was a little boy. TV here was in black and white in those days, but I still enjoyed seeing each story.

  3. An unusual B&C story - it has almost no puns! ^o^
