I found this at Comic Book Resources' "Comics Should Be Good" weblog, in their ongoing Urban Legends Revealed feature. This is a Mickey Mouse newspaper strip from 1930. I reformatted it to better fit a vertical weblog. Enjoy.
And that's what was funny in 1930. Suicide jokes!
You can see the following days' strips in the original CBR article. Keep Mickey's hilarious suicide antics in mind whenever anybody tries to feed you bullshit about today's entertainment media being out of control and destroying the minds of kids. This just solidifies the cultural connection between the Depression/WWII generation and the modern generations... it's those damn nerdy whitebread Boomers in the middle that got all uptight and wrecked things. "Care Bears", spare me!
