Van Boring, by Frank Tashlin

Frank Tashlin was one of the best animators for Warner Bros in the 1940s. His cartoons rank among the best Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies that came from the Leon Schlesinger Studios in the early 1940s. Tashlin has also worked at MGM, and as a story director at the Disney Studios. He did the screenplays of among others 'The Paleface', 'The Good Humor Man' and 'Cinderfella'. In the 1930s, he worked as a magazine and newspaper cartoonist. He drew the comic strip 'Van Boring' using the penname Tish Tash from 1934 to 1936. The strip was sometimes a single panel, sometimes a true comic strip made up of three or four panels.
