In the midst of the cold war, a committee of cartoonists came together under a pet program of President Eisenhoweer. Their goal was to help Americans’ relationships with the people of the rest of the world. The enemy was the stereotype of “the Ugly American.” So most of the top names from the nation’s funny pages chipped in on this effort to both dispel this stereotype and to encourage Americans not to live down to it, with a series of gag cartoons saying “Americans don’t do these things!” but also “Americans: don’t do these things!”
Here are cartoons by the famed creators of Peanuts, Dennis the Menace, Li’l Abner, Beetle Bailey, Hagar the Horrible, Blondie, Steve Canyon, and many more, narrated in this new edition by patriotic comic book superguy Mister U.S.Cartoonists: Chic Young, Milton Caniff, Charles Schulz, Mort Walker, Hank Ketcham, Al Capp, Scott Roberts, Otto Soglow, Jimmy Hatlo, Alfred Andriola, Dik Browne, Rube Goldberg, Roy Crane, Bernard Lansky, Bob Lubbers, Gus Edson, Irwin Hasen, Ernie Bushmiller, Mel Casson, Stan Drake, Harry Devlin, Dick Cavalli.
