The Woozlebeast’s Thanksgiving Dinner

The Woozlebeasts’ Christmas Celebration

The Woozlebeasts (farewell message)
01/01/1905***
The Artistic Legacy of John Prentiss Benson. Compiled and edited by Nicholas J. Baker. Sheridan Books, 2003; p. 251. The beasts that are listed but have no link were probably published in the earlier strips, which appeared in the New York Herald starting from 5 May 1904 and/or in “a book of original Woozlebeast drawings bound in hard cover and presented to his four children. The inscription written inside the front cover reads as follows: ‘Dedicated to Marjorie, Philip, Gertrude and little Mary – 30 years ago.’ It was signed, ‘John P. Benson, May 13th, 1935′” (Ibid., p. 250).
** These beasts are reprinted in the catalogue above, pp. 249-59.
*** Single-panel strip in prose, no limerick verse.
