Virgil 'VIP' Partch Wheaties advertisement, 1945



This ad was part of a series that ran in Liberty Magazine, with a different cartoonist supplying the pitch for Wheaties breakfast cereal in each issue.

Virgil Partch has long been one of my very favorite single-panel cartoonists.

About a month ago I posted a small spotlight on his work, pointing out various places around the web where you can see more of it.

Since that post, there's also been a further installment of great cartoons from VIP's book, 'The Wild, Wild Women' posted at the ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive website. Go take a look at that, too!

I used to see lots of VIP cartoons in the electronics magazines that I read as a kid, like "Electronics Illustrated", and "Elementary Electronics". I remember that he actually used his knowledge of electronics in the humor of the cartoons. Does anyone have any copies of these to post?
