Wood Chips 20: Hansel and Gretel
There were only two issues of Harvey Kurtzman's Trump
, and Wood had only three contributions, short satires on Candid Camera
, Elvis Presley and Disney. Hansel and Gretel
is from the first issue (January, 1957), scripted by cartoonist Ed Fisher. The trapper Troldheim is a caricature of Senator Joseph McCarthy, with the Troldheim name suggesting he is a menacing troll lying in wait to ensnare anyone.
