Another Captain Tootsie
I don't remember exactly where I first heard of CAPTAIN TOOTSIE but it was probably in a fanzine in the seventies. Although just one page ads for Tootsie Rolls, these 1940's ads were produced by the folks who were then producing the gazillion-selling CAPTAIN MARVEL comic. Notably, this meant the great C. C. BECK with his amazingly neat, clean cartoon style, aided here by his longtime studio assistant, Pete Costanza (who, during the Silver Age, drew some memorable JIMMY OLSEN issues).
