I’m not sure what’s so up-to-date about these…yeah, I realize they’re over a hundred years old, but still, they lack the sort of zing one might expect with that snappy title. At any rate, please welcome The Animals’ Mother Goose Up-To-Date to our site! The one above caught my eye as it is clearly a take off of McCay’s Dreams of the Rarebit Fiend, or were Welsh rarebit fueled nightmares such a thing back then that this would be purely coincidental? The signature appears to be Goewey (I would guess Ed Goewey, but this appears rather stylized compared to his usual scratchy signature). As far as I can tell, this ran as a series of ten and we have them all.
