cartoons I don't get 9

Army/Navy Fun Parade, April 1953
Is it that she's wearing a nightie in a restaurant? Why is she wearing high heels? If someone's weaing a nightie, wouldn't they have slippers too?
Hello Buddies, circa 1965
Punch October 6, 1915
The Dude, November 1957
I guess it's that she's moved by sculptures that are abstract, but if I saw this same sculpture without the label “mother and child” I'd know that was what it was supposed to be.
Esquire, June 1934
I think it's that they're cops on the beat of some kind of Inspiration Point and are more impressed by the car than arresting the couple making out in it. (or maybe somebody's masturbating. Who knows? Who cares? The point is that whatever is going on in there is illegal in the community). I've never known cops to wear bowties though, so I was confused at first, and thought they were service station employees. I've never seen service station employees wear badges or carry guns either, and I've never seen a gun with “ears”.
Good Humor, circa 1964
Hello Buddies, June 1952
He followed her all the way to bed. That's a criminal offense. What's the statute of limitations?

Side note: Even when a woman has no shoes on, note she still has the illusion of high heels. I wonder if that's the decision of the cartoonist or the art director.
Hello Buddies, May 1955
Judge, circa 1910
How did he get to there to get the earpiece? Nugget, February 1956
Did she have a bag with her the whole time? If so, wouldn't that be a clue as to her ulterior motive?
Playboy, January 1967
This Is It #22
Is this another person or a doll?
Punch November 9, 1927

Sick #126, 2 of 4

I posted the first part of this last week on my blog here.

This was most likely a parody of the late 70s Wonder Woman show, though I'd like to think it's this one.

Poor Arnold Drake. Creator of Doom Patrol reduced to writing things like this. The art is by editor Jack Sparling, also under-achieving.
Possibly the only time a kiddie humor magazine used footnotes.
Parody of Close Encounters of the Third Kind by David Manak.

Magic Whistle Radio Hour 138

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. You can right-click this if you want to save a zip file of this one (containing an mp3 of the file) for later. Here what information I was able to find:
