These articles are scanned and OCRed from old editions of the Radio & Television News magazine. Here is a list of the Radio & Television News articles I have already posted. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

These two electronics-themed comics appeared in a 1952 edition of Radio & Television News magazine. In the early days of television, it was common in comedy skits and in cartoons to have someone on a television show interact, to the viewer's great shock, directly with the viewer or to reach out of the set and do something, as in the first comic here. The Three Stooges show did that in a couple shows. One in particular I remember was when they were doing plumbing in a house and had water coming out of light sockets and telephones. The homeowners were watching the TV with a film of Niagara Falls when suddenly water came gushing out of the picture tube (begins at 13:20 in video below)
