Here are three more technology-themed comics from vintage of Radio & Television
New magazines. Some issued had multiple comics, but these three had just one apiece,
so I combined them onto a single page. There is a huge list of previously posted
comics at the bottom of the page. With many of these comics, you might need to be
familiar with the mindset of the electronics world back in the day. Today it is considered
hilarious today to see a video of someone walking into a street lamp pole while
staring obliviously into a smartphone. In the middle of the last century, fun was
made of wives not understanding their hubbies' hobbies, dealings with servicemen,
and and goofy things do-it-yourselfers of the era were doing.
"How do you like the cute shades I
made for your funny lamps?"
(October 1949 Radio & Television News, Page 169)
"Hey, fellows, I just got my ham license!"
(June 1951 Radio & Television News, Page 80)
"Just a minute and I'll see if I have
any tubes left!"
(November 1944 Radio News, Page 35)
