1938.
An example from The comic art of Roy Wilson by Alan Clark book...love the header with the octopus pulling many crackers! It is a very happy book. Roy drew the best happy faces.


Buster 1967 reprint from Film Fun. Just love the octopus..a character well known in the stories of Pitch and Toss from Funny Wonder.



The comic art of Roy Wilson by Alan Clark and David Ashford is well worth seeking out...just bought it myself!

We all love the cartoon comic animals of Pogo, Disney, Reg Parlett and Robert Nixon. Roy was there first!

Roy was great at filling the panels with onlooking animals enjoying the fun.
