cartoons I don't get 23

Stag, Fall 1941

If they're making a joke about her having big breasts in a mens magazine, you'd think it would be someone less matronly. I'm just being devil's advocate here.
Punch January 28, 1920

Are “fence” and “gate” two separate things in England, with fences having vegetation? Was one maybe a war term?
Hello Buddies, 1950's
Bo Brown

The “record your own voice” booth is never mentioned in any listicles of things that don't exist anymore. I don't know if this is a “nagging wife” gag or if he'll miss her, if he doesn't really want to be there.
Cavalade, February 1942
Hello Buddies, May 1955
Joe Buresch

I get this one, it's just a bad drawing. The axe should be coming from the other direction and if they had to add a second color (which was probably added by the editor and not intended to be such by the artist) maybe it should have been ib the target or shirt and bikini patterns. As it is it looks like a “phantom” hatchet. And maybe they should have arrows too. I know the archery set is just a pretense for their boning, but the arrows would be a nice cover-up for their charade.
Jest, circa 1942

Another extra-marital affair joke, though usually the man doesn't have one of his trysts with his wife right there.
Life February 16, 1905

He usually sees her with fat legs when he's drunk?
Man's True Danger, September 1969
High, November 1958
Misspelling aside, what exactly is a lingerie demonstration?
Virgil Partch
Playboy, May 1968

I think it's that he's shooting balls into her cleavage, though human flesh would be more malleable than the regular solid hole used in miniature golf.
The Dude, May 1959

A variation that old joke “How do porcupine's make love?” “Very carefully.”, but I would think the joke would be too old even for then.
Judge October 9, 1909
Oscar Howard New Yorker February 21, 1925

Rainy Day Sunshine Fun-Time Sunday Low-Res Cartoon Show #20

I thought I'd show old cartoons like I play old records, but can't find a host.The rights are even more complicated here so I've gotten around it by only embedding things that have already been posted by someone else, absolving me altogether.

I take no responsibility for anything removed by the rightholders, watermarks from previous second-generation sources, editing, cropping, or other ways links that have been broken by parties other than me. Once in a while you'll come across offensive racial stereotypes. Remember the cartoon is about the story and not about them.

Magic Whistle Radio Hour 152

Things I've collected over the years or acquired on mixtapes and comps or gathered from the internet or the library or my parents' attic. The different sources are the reason for the volume disparity. I make no claims to "discovering" or "owning" anything. Probably neither do you. It's whatever I feel like playing that week. Every Saturday. No repeats. Things that may or may not be familiar. Who knows? The time's next to each song in case you don't like something or it's icky or if you don't want your kids to hear it. Don't let offense at one song cloud your impression of the curation as a whole Past weeks here too. Just type "Audio" in the search engine. Or if you're too lazy to press a button more than once, here's everything up to July 2017. You don't get the all playlists, though.
