Bill's FAN Fascination #2

Well, the response was SO ENORMOUS on my last post about "electric fans on the covers of comic books" that I just had to rush this one right out! Meh. Nobody said anything, actually. No one cares about Bill's Fan Fascination. Fine. Feh. Phooey. You're gonna get a second helping anyway.

FAWCETT'S FUNNY ANIMALS #76, July, 1952 (Fawcett Pubs.) features this somewhat illogical funny animal FAN gag... with Hoppy the Marvel Bunny with an electric fan tied to his butt waterskiing across the lake or whatever. The problem? The fan isn't plugged in! How can this be? This incredible lack of basic electric fan operation knowledge ruined the whole comic book for me... there wasn't even a fan in any inside story! Wotta gyp. The second best part of the whole comic was the P.F. Flyers sneaker ad where the kids in town help catch the car thieves by running to the cop station via a shortcut to the drawbridge! Now THAT'S a plot!

Whew. Is it warm in here? The turn on that FAN!

Did you happen to find this gem on the Oddball Comics site? You're as good as that guy you know!

HA! No these "Electric Fan Cover" comics are in my personal collection... I have spent many years assembling these fine gems.

The Oddball Comics site is VERY cool.

Maybe the bunny was moving with such force and speed that it has just now pulled the cord from the wall but he's still got some forward momentum - of course that also means that that rabbit will soon be slowing down and undoubtedly sinking, with an extra weight strapped to his bum, so that's a whole new set of problems :P
Great site :)
