My Forever Treasures is glad we can satisfy the requests for a vintage comic book. We are offering the iconic issue 1 of the beloved Tom Terrific Comic Books. Tom Terrific was an early animated series on American television presented as part of the Captain Kangaroo Show (1957-59.) A Terrytoon creation which ran in five-minute cartoon segments. They were created specifically for the Captain Kangaroo Show.
Tom Terrific and his faithful, comic lazy-bones of a sidekick Mighty Manfred The Wonder Dog were a treat. He’d make cereal for Manfred, to pep him up. Tom could transform himself into anything he wanted thanks to his magic funnel-shaped thinking cap. Tom once turned himself into a spray gun, airplane and alarm clock to help these two rescue circus animals. The public loved their antics.
Reading this comic book has made me a fan as well. In the story “The Lost River” our pals go fishing. After finding there was no water in the river, Tom transformed into a helicopter and a cyclone to find a thirsty alligator. You had to be there. If you were, there was great fishing. A story has Tom and Manfred search for elephiraffes.(1/2 elephant/ 1/2 giraffe.) Each comic book issue contains a “Tom’s Knowledge Page.” Lots of information in this issue about, sharks, oysters, turtles and the lot.
This iconic “Tom Terrific” # 1 issue, will be our only offer of this type. Welcome Tom and Manfred into your home. cheers. 😉
