Gould, Mauldin, Locher, inducted into Oklahoma Cartoonist’s Hall of Fame

Next Saturday, the 14th, the Toy and Action Figure Museum (which also houses the Oklahoma Cartoonist’s collection) will be celebrating their first year in operation. The celebration will include give-aways, a fund-raiser, awards and the induction of six Oklahomans into Oklahoma Cartoonist’s Hall of Fame.  Three of the inductees are comic strippers – Chester Gould, who was born in Oklahoma and went on to create Dick Tracy; Bill Mauldin, whose first cartoons were published in the Daily Oklahoman; and Dick Locher who (and I think they’re stretching things here) is an Oklahoman by association because of his work on the Dick Tracy strip.

Attending the celebration will be Alley Oop producers Jack and Carole Bender.
