  1. Thanks for the cartoons; they bring back memories.

    Do you remember an episode of Timberland Tales that had something to do with a manhood ritual? As I recall, the last picture showed a silhouette of an Indian hanging from the ceiling of a tipi by his balls. He had a cord tied around his balls, tied in a bow tie.

    It was 2 funny!

    I do – and here it is, from June 1982:


    I believe it’s discontinued, but you can find on eBay and elsewhere copies of the Complete National Lampoon on a data DVD, from which I grabbed these pages. Looks like it now commands premium prices in its original form, but there’s at least one 3rd party seller on Amazon who will part with a copy for ten bucks.

    Sure would like to get a collection of Timberland Tales in book form.

      You’ll be happy to know that in June 2015, Taylor wrote in an email to me: “I hope to have an anthology ready for next year.” Fingers crossed!

    The funniest Timberland Tales strip for me involved Maurice accidentally spotting Kathleen naked as she was about to step into a bath, and he instantly got wood – he couldn’t figure it out and started frantically swatting at the bump in his crotch, saying something like “Help! Some kin’ animal in Maurice’s pants!” Brought me to tears…

    It’s a sign of just how funny this strip was that people remember dialog pretty much verbatim across a chasm of decades. It’s not the best quality, but here it is, from the NL Complete DVD released years ago…

    Timberland Tales, July 1977
