Walt Scott's "The Music Box Trio"

And now, a Christmas story by Walt Scott , creator of The Little People. According to Alberto Beccatini, this story was originally presented as a NEA (Newspaper Enterprise Association) Christmas newspaper strip in 1957.























































From Four Color #1062 (December 1959); GCBD credits Walt Scott with script, pencils, and inks.

  1. My mother's family knew Walt Scott.I have a painting by him and copies of many of his stories from The Little People.I also have all the Little People comic books,although only two contain stories actualy by Scott-including the story above.

  2. Richard are you from the Cleveland area? I am Walt Scott's grandson and live in Avon Lake. My grandfather lived in Rocky River. His daughter (my aunt) still lives there as well as his youngest son in New York State. The whole family loves his work.

  4. I know it's been a while-but I just saw your post,Mike.I have no computer,so I go to these sites only on occasion.I was born and bred in the Cleveland Area and my grandfather knew your grandfather.My Mom's Dad,Bill Braucher,worked for the NEA Syndicate.He wrote the comic strip Our Boarding House(Major Hoople)from 1939 to his death in 1958.Not only do I have a Walt Scott painting,but I have many of the Christmas cards he and Edith drew and sent to the Brauchers.
