Big Blog of Kid's Comics posted this rather fascinating yet disturbing scan of a Red Rabbit story from a 1945 Ha Ha Comic (#17). Red Rabbit is a gambling, smoking and rather dumb animal, just the sort of roll model that post WWII AMerica was looking for. He ends up dressing as a small child while his wife pretending to be his mother gives him a good spanking! It was drawn by Irving Dressler who went on to animate many of the classic 1960s Popeye cartoons. There was another, slightly more sanitized Red Rabbit that appeared a few years later in his own comic.
