Li'l Abner Meets Shmoo 1948 Ksp Vol 14 Al Capp Mint Hc

LIL ABNER MEETS THE SHMOO - SCHMOO

LI’L ABNER: THE 1947 DAILIES. Volume 14 (of 27)
by AL CAPP (Hardcover)

Mint / Never Read Condition



The most popular of Capp's hundreds of distinctive characters was the Shmoo. This lovable little creature loved mankind so much that it would sacrifice itself and turn into a ham steak, a gallon of milk or a dozen eggs: whatever its owner desired. Its whiskers made nice toothpicks and its eyes could be recycled as buttons. Most important, a Shmoo could reproduce faster than a rabbit. Thus, if you had one Shmoo, you were set. You didn't need to work at all. Thus did the apparent book for mankind become its curse and the powers that be decreed that all Shmoos must be exterminated. Capp's insightful morality tale was so popular that it spawned an unprecedented merchandising bonanza.

Two introductions, by David Schreiner and by science fiction writer Harlan Ellison, are illustrated with various Shmoo toys manufactured. The large back cover photograph shows a selection of Shmoo merchandise in color from the Denis Kitchen collection. Also featured in this volume: Flying Sausages (parody of "Flying Saucers," a term first coined a few months earlier; Fearless Fosdick, Nightmare Alice, Salomey, Adam Lazonga, Moonbeam McSwine, Cousin Weak-Eyes and Marryin' Sam.

Published in 1998 by Kitchen Sink Press ( KSP ) 2nd printing 12” x 9” horizontal format - 176 pages

ISBN #0-87816-115-5 Mint / Never Read Condition.
