Electronics-Themed Comics
March 1951 Radio & Television News

March 1951 Radio & Television News
March 1951 Radio & Television News Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio & Television News, published 1919-1959. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

The March 1951 issue of Radio & Television News had just two television-themed comics. The first one might have been pushing on the edge of acceptability, but these types of magazines were directed almost exclusively toward men. The easily-offended special snowflake generation was far in the future. Television at that time was building a huge presence in homes worldwide, and there was a huge amount of interest in the technology. It hadn't really been all that long since the public got used to hearing sound (i.e., 'talkies') in the movie theater, so the mystique that surrounded television made it the subject of a lot of puns and jokes. 1949 was a mere six years after the end of World War II, and the post-war economic boom was primed by a surplus of left-over electronic components along with lots of available talent both in the areas of design and assembly. There is a growing list of other comics at the bottom of the page.
