These are really real??

The cunnilingus strip is great.

Ha ha. I love the "CENSUR" stamped on each one, over and over again, as if we haven't gotten the concept yet.

Whenever I read one I heard one of those deep-voiced "extreme" TV announcers going "Cen-SORRRED!!" in my head.

Mort Walker was one of the jolliest old-school guys I ever met and I have absolutely no difficulty imagining him doing these and getting huge belly laughs from them. These were probably sent as jokes to his editor at the syndicate. They definitely were never meant for publication.

Just about every cartoonist does this kind of stuff to his/her characters to break the monotony. Or, at least his studio artists do ;)

Wow. I never knew why I liked Beetle Bailey and now I have a reason.

Hi and Lois is still a, "no," though.

Finally!

So basically Mort Walker also drew comics for Playboy?

Lois of Hi and Lois is Beetle Bailey's sister?!! Who knew?

This reminds me of XKCD.

Norwegian editions of US cartoons quite often contain censored material from overseas. Sometimes just sketches, like the ones linked. And since Bud Grace's Piranha Club is more popular in Scandinavia than at home, he sometimes does special strips that wouldn't pass a US censor.

Hi and Lois's son Chip actually looks a lot like Beetle Bailey.

Still not as shocking as Family Circus Presents: The Aristocrats.
"Not Me" is frickin' disgusting.

There's an out-of-print book called Sexism in Beetle Bailey which includes some rejected strips and some entertaining letters-to-the-editor about Miss Buxley. These are much more explicitly outrageous.

I would love to see a single panel Family Circus strip that showed the aftermath of the act with the feces and fluid stained Billy in a "ta-da!" position in the foreground (the rest of the family in various horrid states in the background) with the caption "The Aristocrats" at the bottom. Help me out, Internet.

Oh man, I laughed out loud at the last one.

(I am so, so very immature.)

I wish they'd printed an ISBN or something similar to make it easier to track this down... I must have it

This looks like it.

Dik Browne was also legendary for his dirty jokes. I don't know if it's still in print, but Mort Walker wrote a great book called Backstage At The Strips that has all sorts of ribald stories. And some funny non-ribald ones about Charles Schulz.

Man, breakfast every morning from first grade until high-school graduation would have been so much more entertaining if these had been run...

There's nothing more old-school than General Halftrack doing the tongue hanging out agog face. Comedy gold!

Okay, glad I read here to get the sense that it was probably real, because I thought this was the most wonderfully dry thing I'd ever seen online. Ah well, another day.

Man, Mort was a dirty old man.

Dik Browne. DIK BROWNE. Another great name, lost to gay porn forever.

Backstage At The Strips is still in print.
