U.S. #3000n
32¢ Alley Oop
Comic Strip Classics

Issue Date: October 1, 1995
City: Boca Rotan, FL
Quantity: 300,000,000
Printed By: Stamp Venturers
Printing Method:
Photogravure
Perforations:
10.1
Color: Multicolored
 
The years of the Great Depression were a period of escapism, and as a result, many strips looked to the future via science fiction. But caveman Alley Oop – and friends Ooola, Foozy, the Grand Wizer, and King Guz – went back in time instead! Set in the prehistoric land of “Moo,” Alley Oop chronicled the romance and humor of a Stone Age society.
 
In 1939, artist Vincent (V.T.) Hamlin introduced Professor Wonmug and his fantastic time machine. The machine, which enabled Alley Oop and his friends to travel to any age in the past or future they (or their creator) desired, offered endless possibilities for comic adventures.
 
A native of Perry, Iowa, Hamlin began cartooning while working in the oil fields of Texas. It was during this time that he also developed interests in geology and paleontology, and in 1929 his famous caveman, Alley Oop, jumped out of the inkwell. His epic strip, which began in 1933, allowed Hamlin to combine both of his interests into a lifelong career. Extremely successful, the strip used strong graphic design and, on Sundays, fanciful color. Hamlin retired from the strip in 1971, leaving a legacy of impressive art and stories.
