The news has seemed extra grim the past week or so I think it's time for some good old-fashioned comic book escapism. Let's take a peek into the four color world of our favorite lisping elephant Silly Sidney. This was the first comic book story featuring Sidney, and it appeared in New Terrytoons #1 (1960, Dell). Sidney never rose to the heights of Terrytoons' major stars like Mighty Mouse or Heckle & Jeckle, but his second animated short, Sidney's Family Tree, actually earned an Oscar nomination in 1958, one of only two Terrytoons to do so.
By the way, where are those Terrytoon dvds I've been waiting for all my life?
