51. Timberland Tales (Santa)

February 15, 1999

Q: I am looking for an episode of the cartoon Timberland Tales where the kid [Maurice] goes to see Santa Claus, and he thinks Santa has leprosy when his makeup melts.

A: It was Timberland Tales, by B. K. Taylor, in the December ’83 (Holiday Jeers!) issue, page 95.


I had a ton of Lampoon magazines that my mom made me throw away. I was smart enough to take most of the Appleton and Timberland Tale cartoons out of the magazines and put them in a folder. I was NOT smart enough to put the folder somewhere that I could remember. I will try to find it and if I can, I will scan these and send this one to you. Tom
