Dan Gordon's "Cookie" Comics

 ACG Comics images © Roger Broughton 2009
Look at this amazing stuff! A week ago I didn't know this comic even EXISTED, and now it's one of my favorites! COOKIE by Dan Gordon was published by ACG in the mid 1940's...the same folks that brought us HA HA and GIGGLE comics, as well as Dan Gordon's Superkatt. This character must have been created in response to the incredible success of Archie, but look how LIVELY and ZESTY and totally JOYFULLY-DRAWN these strips are!

As usual, click on the thumbnail images below for the NICE BIG PICTURES!

I've also added links below to download the whole story at once! Let me know which options you like, okay?

I fell in love with Dan Gordon's work a few years ago when I found his work on the covers of some old tattered back issues of Ha Ha Comics in a used bookstore in Dayton Ohio. But I had no idea who had done them because they are unsigned. Only after seeing a lot of his work recently in a stack of Giggle Comics and Cookie Comics did I realize that they were done by the same guy. I first heard the name "Dan Gordon" a few months back in an article by John K at his amazing blog. There were also some follow-up links that sprouted in the wake of that article. Follow the links below for more info and lots of scans of Dan's Superkatt series that he did for Giggle comics in the 1940's.

UPDATE: There are lots MORE Dan Gordon comics on this blog to look at and to download!

Mucho thanks to Aussie500 who scanned these comics and posted them up at

If you'd like to download the whole comic (non-Dan G. backup stories included) in .cbz format, click HERE:
--If you don't know how to view a .cbz file, it's easy. Read about it HERE.

There are 55 issues of the "Cookie" comic series posted at, (or more specifically: )along with hundreds (probably thousands) of other unusual golden age comic delicacies! ****************** Please NOTE that you have to register at BEFORE they let you download from their website. And THEN you gotta make sure to log in (I wish they made it a little easier...) They allow users to download 100 files per day or 2Gigs of bandwidth, whichever comes first. Sometimes when they say you've used up your bandwidth for the day, you have to wait until the next day to download again. But even then you might need to log out and log back in again. It's a little hinky, but now I'm in the habit of visiting once a day and grabbing what I like. I also get corrupted downloads when I use a download manager like iGetter and FlashGot. If you have any problems with corrupted downloads, just disable any download managers and try again.

Anyway, if I hear from some of you readers that you like these comics, I will post more, and keep posting them as long as there's interest!

Most of the Cookie issues are drawn by Dan Gordon, with other stories by the usual ACG crew. So ENJOY! And --please-- pass this post around so more people can enjoy the work of this fantastic cartoonist.

How Many Licks, indeed? The full-length UNCUT version of the classic Tootsie-Pop commercial!

Did you know that there was a minute-long version of this classic cartoon commercial? I didn't -- until I ran across this on the web somewhere.

I always had a feeling that there were more scenes, because the kid sounds so exasperated when he finally gets to Mr. Owl -- as if he's been asking this question a million times...

You gotta love the Peter Lorre-esque Mr. Fox...

Mr. Fox detail from 1970's classic How Many Licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a tootsie Pop TV commercial mysterious with those shades!

I think that this was one of those cartoons that I saw as a kid that burned the love of cartoons into my brain. The others were also part of a weird potpourri of sensory input that set me on the long and twisted path to a life as a cartoonist: Freakies cereal commercials, the first few Peanuts TV specials, Filmation's DC superheroes cartoons from the 60's, PD Eastman books and Yogi Bear reruns on weekday mornings before walking to grade school. Sssssnnnifffff! -- Ahhh! The smell of cartoons...

Flip the Frog in "The Office Boy"

Kevin Langley just posted this great cartoon and I really got a big kick out it. Classic cartoony fun with lotsa life and an endless chain of screwy gags. Check it out!

You can just hit the PLAY button on the embedded video below...

Sketching while watching old cartoons at the ASIFA Hollywood Animation Archive the ASIFA Animation Archive in Burbank. From "Just a Clown," an old black and white
Terrytoons cartoon animated by Carlo Vinci. I couldn't believe the mouths that he was drawing on this guy, so I had to watch it a few more times with the pause button in one hand and my sketchbook and pencil in the other.
