Fixing CBL: "Voodoo Hoodoo"

This series of posts will try to fix the "errors" intentionally made with the Carl Barks Library.

Thank to a dear friend, the extraordinary Klaus Harms, I'm able to post scans of the original version of "Voodoo Hoodoo".
The only way to read the story as Barks made it is to actually own the original comicbook, considering that, after its original release, this Donald Duck adventure was reprinted in a less unPC way.
Even the Carl Barks Library features the new version: the most evident changes are the natives' face and the fact that the ring in Bombie's nose is removed. Even the dialogue is different. You'll be the judges!
And yes, Bop-Bop was originally intended to be a black man!
Enjoy the original version. I'm posting the first 16 pages and the rest will be available tomorrow.
Let me know your thoughts!

See ya tomorrow for the remaining 16 pages!

Stay tooned,
Duck Dodgers

Why we love Famous Cartoons

I was recently asked why I'm so fond of Famous and Paramount cartoons. In my opinion, from the earliest days of the Studio, in 1943, to 1952 or so, Famous produced some of the funniest cartoons ever. Then they started to make more formulaic but still enjoable shorts.
One of the reasons that I always use to justify my love for these Studio's cartoons is the presence of extreme violence and mayhem in them. I was answered that almost all cartoons of the 40s/50s got violent gags.
Yes, that is true, but nothing on pair with what you can see in a Famous cartoon, with the exception of sacharinous Casper (what do you know? some shots in this post actually do come from Casper cartoons), Little Audrey and Screen Songs/Kartunes.
But the rest of Famous/Paramount productions, expecially the ones with Baby Huey or Herman and Katnip and Buzzy, are a festival of violence!
Mmm...donuts and your truly Duck Dodgers shared their forces and selected for your pure enjoyment some of their favorite Famous/Paramount violent moments.
I KNOW you'll be delighted and amazed!
