And if they have anything to do with art or cartooning I find them even more interesting.
Most of the time these cartoons were used for either instruction manuals or as morale busters.
Some were sometimes used for both.
Bugs and Mickey even got drafted for duty during the war.
I came across one not to long ago that is a lot of fun.
Jane by Norman Pett started in 1932 as sort of a wager. And continued well after the war.
She did however do her part during the terrible conflict.
She was followed by Chrystable leighton-Porter, who also did a strip show as Jane and would also in 1949 make a movie about Jane's adventures.
The Jane strip lasted until 1959 with a couple of attempts after that to revieve the strip in one form or another.
So, what does this have to do with Sherlock Holmes you ask?
Well in 1982 a young actress by the name of Glynis Barber brought Jane to life on TV.
Glynis would also go on to play the part of Beryl Stapelton in 1983 Hound of the Baskervilles.
So, there you have it, there you are.
