Sister's Cut-Outs Toot and Cute

This page is from a newspaper comic called The Kid Sister and the paper doll portion was called Sister's Cut-Out.  These are from 10-28-1934 but certainly have a Thanksgiving pilgrim vibe to them.  These characters are Toot and Cute

Winnie Winkle Fashion Cut-Out


Winnie Winkle Fashion Cut-Out paper dolls from newspapers by the artist Brenner.  These are from the 1930s.  Both feature a backward glancing base with outfits shown from the rear perspective, a very interesting pose for a doll.  I love the prints on the second page.

Jane Arden Couples

Here are some Jane Arden newspaper pages from the 30s featuring male characters along side the typical female fashion cut outs.  Of course these pages are a bit brittle from age and have discolored over time as well.

A tale of two Tillies

Haha, pardon my pun!  Above is an interesting look at newspaper comics.  These are the same panel/paper doll but one is black and white dated May 6 1933 which would be a Saturday not a Sunday and the bottom is in color dated May 7 1933.  Both are Tillie the Toiler.  Note the bottom credits the artists but the top does not.
