Humor & Cartoons


  • 4 volumes, plus 2 letters. 4to. Archive of Socks manuscripts from the mind of one of America's most talented and incorrigible comedians, Michael O'Donoghue, and the multi-talented J.C. Suares: (1) Socks Home Alone in the White House. In blue paper covered three-ring binder, with manuscript title label to cover. 24 leaves, typescript, manuscript and photocopy, with mannuscript edits and additions throughout. (2) 2 TLs (typed letters signed) from Michael O'Donoghue to J.C. Suares, discussing Socks and other cat-related material, merchandising, and including a scrap of original poetry. Also, one sign-off: 'Christ, who do I have to fuck to get off this planet/ '. Unruly, funny, charming. (3) Socks Goes to Washington: Proposal for a half-hour animated special. Padbound wrappers. Photocopy. 4 pp. (4) Don't Blame Me I'm Just the Cat: Sock's Diary - Part II. Dated May 2nd 1994. Spiral bound. Photocopy. 15 leaves. (5) If Cats Ruled the World. Spiral bound. Dated October 20th 1992. 27 leaves. Also includes two staple bound photocopies of manuscripts for O'Donoghue magazine pieces, 'Maid in Japan' and 'Match Girls'. All in very good condition. An incredible archive of unpublished original material from one of comedy's most brilliant, untamed and under-recognized minds. O'Donoghue was the founder of the Harvard Lampoon, the first head-writer for Saturday Night Live (his love/hate relationship with the show is the stuff of legend), and one of the true original voices in the entertainment business.
