Cartoon Jamboree Jan. 1957
Cartoon Jamboree's gag cartoons were on the low end of the scale compared to the New Yorker and Esquire. The color covers, front and back by Bill Wenzel, were a treat, and some of the cartoonists, such as Ali and Bernhardt, appeared in more upscale magazines. Cartoon Jamboree was published in Minneapolis, Minnesota and the star of the magazine was O'Brien with his simply drawn clodhopper fifties male characters and curvy alluring women.
