Beetle Bailey: August 30, 1954 Posted by beetle | June 30, 2011

The troops at Camp Swampy are on the move, headed to New York City again just in time to fall in for the big Holiday fashion season. Stay tooned right here for updates on the big news! Meanwhile this summer, DRx and King Features trekked to Stamford, Connecticut to work with Beetle’s creator, Mort Walker, who is undisputedly one of the hardest-working and most prolific cartoonists of all time! We wanted to find a cool way to celebrate some of Mort’s favorite comics from the six decades of funny material in his archives. In keeping with our whimsical approach to Americana, we marched back in time to mine our rich media history and created a series of videos as a nod to the classic newsreels so popular during the first half of the 20th century.

We think the Beetle Bailey-DRx-King Features collaboration showcases an unforgettable ode to Americana. We hope you’ll agree! Click here to check out our first Beetle Bailey video. And check back here often for more -
we’ll be releasing new ones periodically.
