LEON SCHLESINGER'S COMICS!

This page has been established to collect the promotional comic strips of Leon Schlesinger. Schlesinger, producer of the classic Looney Tunes & Merrie Melodies from 1930 to 1944, was not a cartoonist. Mark Evanier tells us that he suspects both strips were drawn by Chase Craig, a Schlesinger animator who would go on to become editor-in-chief at Western Publishing.

Where these comic strips originally appeared - that is the question. If you have any additional examples or more information on these comics, please email them in to Cartoon Research. Thank you.
