Vintage 1940s -1950s Little Abner Cartoon Character Get Well Greeting Card - Moonbeam McSwine - Comic Strip by Cartoonist Al Capp - Suitable for Framing

Vintage 1940's - 1950's Lil' Abner cartoon Get Well greeting card - unused 6-1/2" x 5" card suitable for framing - features comic strip character Moonbeam McSwine, a brilliant three-color lithograph image drawn by famous American cartoonist Al Capp. The voluptuous but dirty pig-loving Moonbeam lived in a pig sty, but none-the-less tried to lure Little Abner away from Daisy Mae with her ample and shapely charms.

The Lil' Abner comic strip appeared from 1937 to 1977 in most daily newspapers. The strip was particularly noted for its humorous satirical content, commenting on the contemporary political and social issues of the day. Its creator was the great American Cartoonist Alfred Gerald Caplin (September 28, 1909 - November 5, 1979), who signed his cartoons "Al Capp".

This greeting card features a short punning get-well message, and is copyright by the United Features Syndicate, a large comic strip newspaper syndication service owned by The E.W. Scripps Company, and published by the Superior Greeting Co. of Boston Mass.

Printed on off-white standard fold-over greeting card stock, with a brilliant three-color lithograph image on the cover. No envelope is included.

PHOTO NOTE: The muted grainy nature of the images is a photo distortion, which makes what are actually very vivid colors appear somewhat muted. The scanning process tends to exaggerate the dots from the lithographic process, creases and small flaws, which are usually much less noticeable when viewed in person.

CONDITION NOTE: The condition of this card is excellent. Corners are sharp. Colors are brilliant. There are no holes or creases. However, there are four pushed-up spots on the upper left margin that corresponds with four indentations on the back. All defects are clearly visible.
