Is the last one on the first page the origin of "LOL-CATZ" ?

Really funny cards and commentary. I thought alot of those looked like they might've been Campbells Kids or somehow related, while a couple others reminded me of some of the Oz books (with Jack Pumpkinhead)... specifically the molested pumpkin.

Man, you'd never find these in Australia. But you've probably heard enough "no Halloween for Aussies" griping from me.

Good article!

Both the girl and the cat in that "chums" card look like one of those Felix the Cat clocks with the eyes that go back and forth.

Is it just me or does the card with the African-American child look a little racist. While it could be passed off for a ghost, the costume looks more like a KKK getup since the sheet looks more like a robe.

The card where the dwarf is molesting the pumpkin can be viewed the other way with the pumpkin trying to eat the dwarf.

Finally, that child looks a little too creepy holding the pumpkin in the “Halloween fun” card. It makes you wonder who makes this stuff up. Besides viewing Halloween in the same token as Christmas (With more than enough Jolly), some of these cards are just twisted and wrong.

In the 8th pic, it looks like the creepy moon-face is leering at the witch's bottom. It's kinda the same look McCain gives Palin every now and again...

My first wedding anniversary is this Halloween. I wouldn't be so lucky as to get one of these gems as a gift! They don't make them like this anymore, damnit! *kicks dirt*

At what point did we decide to drop the apostrophe in Hallowe'en. I think I'm going to start right now and bring it back. On the other hand why is it needed.

What does the Oompa Loompa card say? It looks like it says "If we were goth here, I bet I'd find a ded/red ear."

The Oompa Loompa card freaks me out because the two on the right have no faces. It looks like they are melting together or are the twins from that one hellraiser movie where their faces become intertwined.

Also, not sure if you knew this Rog but the Friday the 13th show (series one) either came out yesterday or next tuesday on DVD. The show totally sucked but I watched it anyway. Now we just need the Nightmare on Elm Street show to come out on DVD.

HowardC, my thoughts exactly. I believe it to be the earliest documented "lolcat" in existence.

Icculus, good question... I'm guessing it happened when the holiday came to the States. I'm pretty sure the apostrophe in there was the original Celtic spelling of the word. Also, Robert Burns wrote a poem called "Hallowe'en" in 1785, so you know it goes waaay back.

Bellamisty, actually it says "If we were both here, I bet I'd find a red ear." which doesn't make much more sense.

azrael2514, funny you should mention it, I actually have a blog post lined up talking all about the show that's going up in a little while. Keep an eye out for it.

Gosh, i cant believe people used to buy these things. How do you use em? slip them into people's candy or under their doors? Because I'd be pissed if i asked for candy and got a card.

I think it's an abbreviation of All Hallows Eve. Hallows Evening? Hallow E'en = Halloween.

I'm with you on bringing it back, much creepier.

could be...I'm really to lazy to google it.

It's creepy because there are some mystery letters in the that we just don't know. Maybe they are letter that shun't be spoken lest ye feel the wrath of creepy hallowe'en children.

Chestnuts are totally dicks. One time I was reading a book report in front of the class and Wally Chestnutterson pulled my pants down in front of everybody.

My all time favorite card is from the early 70's and depicts Frankenstein's Monster violating a terrified pumpkin.

I think of Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness cover every time I look at the 8th card, maybe because the witch is wearing a green dress and is flying into the night. Also, I beliebe those suckers in white robes with pumpkins are nothing more than KKK acolytes.
