205. Worm Trainer Comic

Q: Do you know where I can find a little cartoon I loved a long time ago? It’s a circus lion tamer dude but he’s training giant worms and one worm is being reprimanded, “No donuts for Shirley!”

A: Sure, I remember that one. It was a cartoon by M.K. Brown called “Russ de la Rocca—Worm Trainer of the Americas”. It appeared in the Funny Pages section of the September 1972 (Boredom) issue. It was also reprinted in the special issue National Lampoon Comics (1975).
