Description

Cover is new. Insert is new by Tony Tallarico. The rest of the contents are reprints.

These are the celebrities on the cover: John Wayne, Jim Nabors, Richard Nixon, Sally Field, Rowan and Martin, Phyllis Diller, Tiny Tim, Bob Hope, the Smothers Brothers, Jimmy Durante (who hadn't had a hit record for many years but was a well-loved perennial personality on TV variety shows throughout the entire decade into the early 1970's) and Hubert Humphrey.

The girl between Tim and Hope looks like a Severin generic crowd character, simply because she's not recognizable as any celeb of the time. It it's supposed to be Twiggy, it would appear that Severin didn't remember what she looked like and had no reference photos available as there is no resemblance. This is possible, but hard to prove as a result, unless a caricature of Twiggy within a Cracked article by Severin can be found that looks like this. Who is the guy with the hat in front with the Landon button on it? Is that supposed to be Walter Winchell?
