Silver Age Christmas - "The Trip"

All December 2014, we will be celebrating a Silver Age Christmas, with great Silver Age comics about Christmas. For the sake of this endeavor, "Silver Age" will be defined as 1956-1970 (the annoying part about that is that 1951-1955 sort of fall into no man's land, as it is not yet Silver Age but also seems to be a bit late for Golden Age).

Today we look at 1956's Sugar and Spike #6...

This story basically shows you all you need to know about Sheldon Mayer's classic series, Sugar and Spike, about two young babies who can communicate with each other but not with grown-ups (think Rugrats basically. Rugrats is almost exactly Sugar and Spike). Anyhow, this time the friends share their first Christmas together (it is kind of odd that two families would share their kids' first Christmas together, as Sugar and Spike are not related, but, well, I guess you just sort of have to go with it)...

Mayer was excellent.
