Mr Coffee Nerves

Postum Ad

This ad from 1936 has officially become history : as of this year (about half a century after George got his wings) Kraft no longer produces Postum, the caffeine-free coffee replacement.

The art for this strip was provided by Paul Arthur, an alias used by Milton Caniff and Noel Sickles (according to Alex Toth).  There’s another ad after the click (nicked from eBay), for Baker’s Coconut mix this time, which is also credited to Arthur, and follows a very similar story line.
