"Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies" (Dell) # 39, January 1945: "Christmas Tree Feud"

The Dell/Western Publishing comics, not just the Looney Tunes series, had tons of Christmas-themed stories and specials. This month, after taking a break from this blog for a while, I plan to showcase some of my favorites featuring the Looney Tunes characters. Some are funny, some are sweet, and some are just plain bizarre.

In this one, from 1945, Mary Jane and Sniffles enter the fantasy world of Christmas trees. All is not well in this world, because the natural green trees and the fake-snow flocked trees are feuding. As bizarre as it sounds, it has a good message, and is really an appealing Christmas fantasy worth the 11-page read.
