From Comics to Toons: Rip Van Winkle, a la Snuffy Smith (1963)

Snuffy Smith (Paul Frees) draws inspiration from his nephew, Jughaid, and his reading of Washington Irving's Rip Van Winkle to take a nap, prompting Jughaid to conspire with Barney Google to turn Snuffy into "Rip Van Snuffy".

As we have previously documented, Rip Van Winkle would later be adapted into animated form, and given better treatment.

Rating: B-.
