Professor Jim Crack’s Amazing Discoveries: Tigwissel Tuesdays, Part 26

This being the day before our annual national party, what better time to run a few extracts from the circa 1936-1937 booklet, Professor Jim Crack’s Amazing Discoveries! This small advertising booklet was put out by Old American Brand Whiskies, showing the Professor engaged in a series of “scientific experiments” involving his testing the properties of Old American Whiskey… :)

I would guess that each strip originally ran in separate magazine ads, but, that’s just my guess.

Click on the above & below pictures, to view the cartoons in detail, and read their captions.
