Comics with an Electronics Theme
December 1965 Popular Electronics

Television (TV) and high fidelity stereo (HiFi) were a big deal from the 1950s through the 1970s as electronics technology underwent major improvements in component capabilities and research produced high-complexity circuits that featured sophisticated methods of signal processing. The industry went through the transition from vacuum tubes to transistors during that three decade period, setting the groundwork for the next generation of microprocessor-based audio-visual entertainment. Printed comics and TV and radio shows favorite themes included jokes having to do with Joe Sixpack and his family's anecdotes involving television and HiFi stereo. Here are a few more from the mid-1960s. A complete list of all the comics I have posted is at the bottom of the page.
