Spooky the Tuff Little Ghost

Kooky spooky fun from the February 1966 issue of Spooky #90 ...yep, this is the stuff I grew up on, and Harvey Comics really knew how to pack each issue full of great characters and storytelling, not to mention appealing full-page advertising that was much more than just issue filler. Did anyone have the Transogram Pretzel-Jetzel? God, it looks amazing!

Dangit! I've wanted a Pretzel-Jetzel forever! Now you torment me with it once again.

Charming little story - I love the way the moon comments on the action with all those expressive faces.

What a cool Spooky comic. I am at a loss to identify the artist, but what a cool cast of characters. Even the writing in this one seems unique.

I have yearned for a Pretzel Jetzel for a long, long time.

Google has a couple nice pix of the Pretzel-Jetzel, in and out of the box... and notice how the ad says "As seen on TV"? If anyone finds commercials on youtube or anywhere please stick a link here in the comments.

Glad you enjoyed the Spooky tales, and I will undoubtably have lots more Harvey fun in the months and years to come, so bookmark this blog and become a follower too if you haven't already--- and tell all your friends about AEET! Thanks!

I had this one! Brings back memories. I loved Spooky and Casper and Wendy. I look forward to more of these. And the nice thing about them being online is they can't get chewed up by mice like my hard copies did.
