The February 1945 2024 Calendar for Naughty Little Bunnies

It's the first day of the month and you need a February 2024 calendar to pin up on your walls next to the Farrah Fawcett-Majors poster and and that cheap print copy of Picasso's Guernica! That's why I'm happy to present to you, courtesy of Billy Warden from the Home Office in Leipsic, Ohio*...Funny Animals #26!. Look, February begins on a Thursday and everything!

cover of Fawcett's Funny Animals #26 (Fawcett, February 1945), creator uncredited and unknown

Oh for Pete's safe the rabbits are plastered over most of it, rendering is slightly less useful as an actual cover. Oh well, at least they've obscured the fact that there wasn't a February 29 in 1945. Although FDR ought to have authorized one!

*Explaining that joke: it's based on the scan of the cover I had for this sequence before I found a better image:

1945's Billy Warden of Leipic, Ohio, we salute you! And thank you for never turning this comic into the authorities to be recycled into a weapon against Hitler, because that all worked out, anyway.

Oh! And the joke in the header is a reference to a Mystery Science Theater 3000 bit. S'all right? S'all right.
