No, don't open that door, McGee...Wilcox may be behind it with another Johnson Glo-Cote commercial!

Fibber and Molly comic book

Post by Cobra »

Did you know there was once a Fibber McGee and Molly comic book? A copy of the book, from 1949, can be read or downloaded at:

The writing, of course, isn't as clever as the radio show's but the comic is plenty zany.

According to a comics website, just one issue (A1 Comics, #25) was published, with a cover price of a dime.

Ozzie and Harriet was also a comic book - 4 or 5 issues - there were many comics that became radio shows (Orphan Annie Lone Ranger etc etc) but I am unable to think of any other radio shows that had comic books - Lum n Abner maybe

There was a Great Gildersleeve story in a 1944 Supersnipe comic. Just go to:

Listening to the July 12, 1937, show this morning, I heard Fibber and Molly joking about their newspaper comic strip. Alas, I couldn't find an example online. I'm presuming the strip was short-lived but who knows.

comic strip

Post by partridge »

I don't know about a newspaper comic strip - what I have seen is a comic book - and it seems there was only a single issue (but I could be wrong)
