The magazine HUMBUG came out in the 1950s shortly after MAD Magazine took on a new look.  The new look of MAD and the start of HUMBUG  are related events.  The editor and key artists of MAD walked away, or were fired., and they started their own magazine, published  by PLAYBOY, named TRUMP.  TRUMP last two issues, then they started HUMBUG.  If you saw HUMBUG on the magazine, printed on paper and poor color, you would probably think this magazine won't last very long. You would have been right.  It lasted 11 issues.

Since the baseball season is upon us, I thought I would hop on the bandwagon and show HUMBUG's take off on baseball.  Artist Arnold Roth, who in time, went back with MAD.
