Golden Picture Story Book #1 - 1961

One of the earlites treasury comics ever made, this was the first issue of a four-issue series entitled Golden Picture Story Book. Like the other volumes, this is a very handsome book--nicely illustrated, nice warm colors, and thick cardboard covers.

This is an ideal book for children (if it weren't for the fact that it's very expensive to find in any condition). It features a whole bunch of HB stars besides ol' Huckleberry--Pixie, Dixie and Mr.Jinks, Augie Dogie and Doggy Daddy, Snooper and Blooper, and my personal favorite QuickDraw McGraw!

I had never even heard of this series until I saw a brief mention in an article in the Overstreet price guide. They have them listed as "rare", but luckily I found them on Ebay in a short time. I'm glad I made that discovery, since not only are these some of the earliest treasury comics ever made, but they are very nice books in their own right!

52 pages.

Golden Picture Story Book #2 - 1961

Like the other volumes, this is a very handsome book--nicely illustrated, nice warm colors, and thick cardboard covers.

First off--the cover. It's just gorgeous. So simple, so colorful, full of verve and life. Not only are the drawings nice, but the design is excellent. In addition to Yogi, this book, like the previous one, features other H-B stars, like QuickDraw McGraw, Auggie Doggie, Snooper and Blabber, Snagglepuss, and Yakky Doodle.

Interestingly, it also features two pages of Yogi Bear recipes ("Step One: Eat Campers. Step Two: Repeat.") like cheesedogs, applesauce, and grilled cheeses. Rachel Ray has nothing on Yogi!

Golden Picture Story Book #3 - 1961

Like the other volumes, this is a very handsome book--nicely illustrated, nice warm colors, and thick cardboard covers.

This is an adaptation of the live-action Disney film starring Annette Funicello (pictured), the only movie adaptation done for this series of books. Too bad, since it would've been really fun to see other live-action Disney movies, like 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, done as a treasury comic.

Golden Picture Story Book #4 - 1961

Like the other volumes, this is a very handsome book--nicely illustrated, nice warm colors, and thick cardboard covers.

This book consists of short Donald Duck and related duck stories, featuring all the kids favorites--Huey, Duey, and Louie, Ludwig Von Drake, the Beagle Boys, etc.

Nice painted cover, too.
