Please note: This 'kinescope' recording was originally made in 1953 by filming the picture from a live video monitor. The picture quality - especially sharpness - is much lower than the rest of our footage produced on 16mm film. KPIX-TV and the San Francisco Museum of Art presents a program in the 'Discovery' series about the social impact and history of cartooning, hosted by Joe Brotherton. Includes an interview with cartoonist George Lichty (1905-83), who discusses the creative process behind his 'Grin and Bear It' strip and who is working to meet a deadline. Also features a review of the history of cartooning by Irene Lagoria (curator of the Achenbach Foundation) and an introduction to the San Francisco Museum of Art.
