CLASSIC COMICS OF YESTERYEAR: YOGI & HIS TOY #1 - COMPLETE ISSUE...


Characters copyright HANNA-BARBERA

Well, okay, it's arguable whether this particular periodical can rightly be regarded as a 'classic', but that's how I regard it as I bought it when it first went on sale in February of 1972.  I was 13 years old and clearly too old for the comic, which was aimed at much younger readers, but I was always a sucker for anything to do with YOGI BEAR.  It seems to me that I was in the house I then lived in for quite some time after this title came out, so I'm surprised to discover that I moved to another residence in another neighbourhood a mere four months later.  Funny how the mind plays tricks, eh?

Anyway, if you had this comic back in 1972, then now you have it again - and if you didn't, then you do now.  Everybody's a winner - unless you're not a Yogi Bear fan that is.  That's unthinkable of course.

(Incidentally, I haven't cleaned up the pages too much, which still show some of the marks of time. I've only whitened up the margins and gutters just a tad.)

absolutely. I don't remember this comic or I would have bought it. Beano and MWOM were my reading material. I wish they have reprinted tv 21 but it was too late for me.

Some of the TV21 material was reprinted in Countdown in 1971, PS. Ever see that comic?

Post a cover and I might remember. I got the new reprint Gerry Anderson tv 21 comics hardback collection and am working my way through it. I'm noticing a slight fuzziness in the line of the art. I'm assuming they shot some of it from published art and not from original art. Or was it always like that? Take a look yourself and tell me.

Already posted, PS - just type Countdown into the search box. There's been a few reprint hardback collections over the last few years, with the ones by Egmont being printed from (often) poor scans of TV21 pages, but the ones by Reynolds & Hearn/Signum Books have some pages printed direct from the original art.
