Fawcett’s Funny Animals

 FAFA   (Fawcett, 1942-1956)

Charlton publishes #84-91.

Funny-animal strips have been a mainstay of comic books from the very beginning. The most popular were merely extensions of cartoon brand names—think Mickey Mouse and Looney Tunes—but lesser-known funny-animal comics were not any less well done. This Fawcett title is a perfect case in point. Featuring no major cartoonists and no Saturday matinee cartoon idols, it nevertheless offered cinematic-quality art and some truly funny stories. But its most popular and noteworthy character was Hoppy, the Captain Marvel Bunny. By shouting the same magic word (”Shazam!”) as his human counterpart Captain Marvel, mild-mannered Hoppy Bunny could transform into a l’il Big Red Cheese, fighting the four-color good fight for truth, justice and the animal way. Long before Underdog, Super Goof or Captain Carrot, Hoppy was one of comicdom’s first cross-genre characters (introduced in the 1940s, roughly the same time as Mighty Mouse), blending equal parts humor and action in his adventures.
