    “the almost weekly spanking would start soon” sounds like a heck of an introduction to a strip

    Or, as Mad Magazine called them, “The Katchandhammer Kids.”

    The Katzenjammer Kids! Yay! One of my absolute favorite strips when I was a kid!

    Interesting that the first kids “prank” was just them responding to something their father did.

    That’ll fix him for a while. They didn’t change much over the years.

    Mad brought out the implicit cruelty of both the pranks and the punishments. Were these strips meant to be about “immigrants” I wonder? The Sunday color strips were published to increase sales. The content of these strips is really an eye opener.

    That’s what I was wondering, but I suspect the one in orange. Looks taller & skinnier than the other two.
