gratuitous violence

Because we feel like it. Because cartoon violence is the best violence of all!

Cover detail, Columbia Coda, June-July 1943. The above is not a garden variety mugging—it has to do with highbrow musical theatrics. The dagger to the heart caused the victim to sing—and thereafter to be written out of the plot. Although it's possible he returned in later acts as a zombie.
