Cartoonist Orlando Busino passed away quietly on January 11th. He was 95, and had just recently celebrated his 70th wedding anniversary with Ann (Darlington) Busino. 

Known for his gag cartoon work for so many publications (including Boys' Life, 1000 Jokes, Reader's Digest, Saturday Evening Post, Good Housekeeping, and many, many others), he created comic books with George Gladir at Archie, as well as comic strips, assisting with Moose Miller and Gil Thorp. 

He was as prolific as he was kind. I was fortunate to have lunch with him on a number of occasions at a restaurant in Westport. Or "Westpork," as his friend and neighbor Bob Weber would say. Bob would be at lunch as well as a few more like Ron Goulart and Frank McLaughlin and Frank Bolle. All of them, legends.

Frank McLaughlin, Orlando Busino, and Frank Bolle.

Orlando grew up in "cow country," in Binghamton, New York. He developed an interest in cartooning at the age of nine, and he sold his first cartoon to the New York Mirror at the age of 14. "Bulldog, with Central, the Wonder Dog" was the name of the comic strip he created for his high school paper. Look at an old copy of the magazine Open Road for Boys, and you will see Orlando's cartoons winning many of their cartoon contests. Orlando was drafted into the army and served in Panama from 1945 to 1947. He drew cartoons for the army unit newspaper there. Returning home, he attended Binghamton State, and then the University of Iowa, drawing cartoons for their school papers.  

"After graduating in 1952, he moved to New York City. He worked in the ad department of the Macmillan Publishing Company. At night he attended the Cartoonists and Illustrators School. A year later he sold his first cartoon to The Saturday Evening Post, launching his career as a freelance cartoonist.

"Busino also worked for Archie Comics in the 1960s, doing covers, illustrations, and stories for "Tales Calculated To Drive You Bats." This work was later reprinted in Archie's Madhouse.

"Orlando Busino’s created 'Gus,' a feature about the antics of a large white dog, which first appeared in Boys' Life in January 1970. It took over the honor spot on the 'Think & Grin' page (the spot headed for nearly 20 years by Clyde Lamb 'Millicent' and briefly by John Gallagher’s 'Cartoon Bug'). Gus appeared on the cover of Boys' Life in December 1981.

"Orlando Busino received the National Cartoonist Society Gag Cartoon Award for 1965, 1967, and 1968."

I've been a fan of Orlando's since my Dad got me a subscription to Boys' Life (1970 or so), where, for 30 years, he'd drawn a cartoon about a big dog titled "Gus."

"I don't know how that translates into dog years, but it's been a long time," Mr. Busino said in Who's Who in Ridgefield, CT. (Link down as of today. Hmm.)

More from Who's Who:

"Aside from his wry sense of humor and his drawing ability, Mr. Busino is well known in the field for his skill at lettering. In recent years, he has done all the lettering on one of the world's most popular serial strips, Gil Thorp.

"'I've never had a real job,' he once joked with an interviewer. 'Once in a while I daydream I might want to direct a movie. But that only lasts for a minute.'

"However, in another, more serious interview, he said: 'I've enjoyed it all the way. Cartooning is not something you go into unless you enjoy it.'"


The Daily Cartoonist has a great round up of links

For 10-14 Mustang Intro-Tech Floor Mats FO-478-DP Custom Cargo M showcases cartoons from Boys' Life and the syndicated Laff-A-Day panel by Orlando (as well as ones by Don Orehek, Bill Yates, Jack Markow, Reamer Keller and others) at his blog.

Video: Political Cartoonist Chan Lowe

"Without the idea behind the cartoon - without the message - there really is no point in drawing the cartoon."

Political cartoonist Chan Lowe talks about the nature of political cartoons and we see some of his process -- which combines old school paper and digital. 


This video is from 2018, just a year before Mr. Lowe retired.

Tony Tallarico 1933 - 2022


Comic book artist Tony Tallarico passed away on January 6th. He was 88. Tony was a friend and a member of our Long Island Chapter of the National Cartoonists Society, the Berndt Toast Gang. In addition to being a longtime comic book artist, he was a children's book illustrator and author. For Dell Comics, he drew the comic book Lobo (1965), the first to star an African-American hero. 

 Via Paul Gravett:

"Among Tallarico's diverse credits (see a few examples below - he also produced over 1,000 children's books), his political satire comic 'The Great Society' from 1966 stands out, mashing up topical political caricature with Sixties superheroes. Naturally, I included it here in my 'Incredibly Strange Comics' survey, writing: 'Here's an entire pun-filled satirical comic about costumed versions of U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson, alias SuperLBJ, and his cabinet, who team up as G.R.E.A.T ("Group Resigned to End All Threats") against an array of supervillains, from France's Gaullefinger (DeGaulle) to Russia's Dr. Nyet (Khruschchev). leaping into action because "SuperLBJ is Missing!", the team including LBJ's wife, "Lady Bird" Johnson as Wonderbird, Barry Goldwater as Colonel America and Hubert Humphrey as Captain Marvelous fail to find him. So it's up to SuperLBJ to save himself and then the entire world. Plotting behind the scenes are Bobman and Teddy, or Robert and Ted Kennedy, who starred in a sequel of their own. Written by D.J. Arneson and published by Parallax Comic Books Inc, New York.'"


One of the projects that Tony did was a comic book adaptation of the film version of the 1776 musical. Here are some originals of his from the collection of Michael J. Vassallo:

Here is GRIN, a 3-issue MAD-type magazine from 1972-3, with Tallarico art for the cover for number three:

From 1971, a Christian comic for Logos International:


Tony was always working. I see his books -- his kids books, his how to draw books, etc. -- all the time. 

Here's Adrian Sinnott, the chair of the Berndt Toast Gang:

"The wonderful Tony Tallarico passed away late last night. Tony had a long and prolific career working in comics and children’s books.

"A consummate professional, Tony was always in demand and worked up until recently. He was very proud to have illustrated the first comic book with an African-American hero 'Lobo.'"

"Such a kind and generous soul, the Berndt Toast Gang is privileged to have had Tony as an esteemed member."

Happy Birthday, Charles Addams

Born on this day in 1912. Happy birthday to the macabre New Yorker cartoonist Charles Addams. 

Charles Addams with wife Barbara, an attorney, in 1955, AP Photo. "He was married three times, and in between marriages dated the likes of Greta Garbo, Jackie Kennedy and Joan Fontaine," so says the Mental Floss blog.

Happy 110th birthday to cartoonist Charles Addams, whose new animated ADDAMS FAMILY 2 movie came out a few months ago. Tim Burton's Addams Family-inspired Netflix series titled Wednesday is now in production. 

"Well, Kendrick, still think I'm just an alarmist?"


Addams' childhood nickname was "Chill."

During World War II, Addams made animated training films for the Army while serving served in the Signal Corps Photographic Center in New York.

He sold his first cartoon to The New Yorker at the age of 21 for $7.50. He would sell over 1,300 drawings to the magazine until his death in 1988.

In the tradition of cartoonists Sidney Smith and Sam Cobean, Addams loved cars.

Addams was a lady's man and was married three times.

Janet Maslin writes in the NY Times:

"The second Barbara [photo above], whom he married in 1954, combined Morticia-like looks with diabolical legal scheming. Ms. Davis [in her biography CHARLES ADDAMS: A CARTOONIST'S LIFE] describes the remarkable tug of war that began once Mr. Addams’s second wife, a practicing lawyer, began persuading him to sign away rights to much of what he owned. She wound up in control of the 'Addams Family' television and movie franchises and even bewitched Mr. Addams into taking out a $100,000 life insurance policy.

"'I told him the last time I had word of such a move was in a picture called ‘Double Indemnity’ starring Barbara Stanwyck, which I called to his attention,' wrote Mr. Addams’s lawyer, whom he dared to consult only on the sly. In the film, Ms. Stanwyck’s character plotted to murder her husband for insurance money."



"We won't be late, Miss Weems. Get the children to be around eight, and keep your back to the wall at all times."


Maslin further notes, "Addams's persona sounds cooked up for the benefit of feature writers ... was at least partly a character contrived for the public eye."

Links to all things Addams.

Michael Maslin provides even more links, including the video bit below -- it's from William Castle's THE OLD DARK HOUSE (1963). Charles Addams is credited with "specially designing" the title house in this B-picture starring Tom Poston.



 Via Wikipedia:

"On September 29, 1988, Addams, a sports car enthusiast, had just driven back to his apartment in Manhattan from a visit to friends in Connecticut when he parked his Audi 4000 in front of the apartment building. He was struck by a fatal heart attack while still behind the wheel."



The "Morticia doll," from the early 1960s. For sale for $19.95. I believe this is before the TV series.

Jean-Marie Bertin also has an amazing bibliography of Addams's books. Below is a portion of it: his comprehensive list of Addams's solo books.

 And this one is a personal favorite:

"George! George! Drop the keys!"

Carl Rose Illustrations from TRY AND STOP ME by Bennett Cerf

Since yesterday I blogged about an old TV game show with cartoonists on it, I'll continue the motif and share some illustrations from a book by a fellow who may be best known now for his What's My Line? appearances in the 1950s and 60s. 

Here's a rather dog-eared edition of TRY AND STOP ME, a collection of Bennett Cerf's newspaper columns. It's copyright 1944 by Mr. Cerf. The dust jacket tells us the book has

"the most amusing anecdotes of the theatre, the book world, movies and sports and the most interesting ghost stories. One chapter contains thirty-two anecdotes, in which various pigeons, herrings and mere people furnish the deliciously crazy brand of humor known as Shaggy-Dog. Some of the stories are more than a page long. Some are only a few lines, There are hundreds of them, all flavors."

Bennett was a force, and this was arguably his best-selling book. The go-to guy to illustrate this book was cartoonist Carl Rose.

Carl Rose was the cartoonist who drew the 1928 New Yorker magazine cartoon in which the mother tells the child at the dinner table, "It's broccoli, dear." And the kid responds with "I say it's spinach, and I say the hell with it." Mr. Rose drew this, Mr. E.B. White supplied the gag line.

Rose was a busy cartoonist, and here's a small sample of a few of the dozens of drawings he did for TRY AND STOP ME. I like his line. It's bold and inky. I'm guessing a crow quill or bowl dip pen. Regardless, it's pretty pliant and Rose is a master.
