Bit O'Honey Ad 1948


Here's a cute BIT O'HONEY comic strip ad from 1948. So why does it leave me feeling a bit...weird? Could it be the slightly seductive pose our jailbait heroine strikes in panel one? Perhaps the final panel telling us to eat Bit O' Honey (which has already been established as the girl's name)? And what's with OLD NICK down at the bottom extolling the virtues of his nuts? Maybe it's just me? Maybe I should call my therapist. Did Dr. Wertham know about BIT O'HONEY?
