Threats and Missed Opportunities

Spankings involving superheroes and superheroines, non-superhero comic-book stuff, comic strips, jungle girls, Lara Croft, Vampirella, Elvira, etc. Chross' board already has an excellent thread on this, but we love this subject so much we figure it deserves its own forum here anyway.

Re: BENDING OVER and Some Actual Spankings

Postby web-ed » Thu Mar 22, 2018 7:51 pm

Wow! - it's hard to keep up with you, Phil! :lol: I hope you don't mind that I moved your post over here - my idea was to reserve the Dixie Dugan topic for that strip alone, whereas general BENDING OVER material (as well as "behind in jeopardy" stuff) has generally been part of this topic. Of course I forgot to hold off posting the misplaced Dixie threat before I did the move, thus it's now in-between your posts and this one, but I guess we'll manage. I better break up my responses into several posts.

(By the way, a handy trick on this board sometimes is to be in two places at once using multiple tabs or multiple windows (whichever you prefer). Once you sign in in one place, you will be signed in when you go to the board on another tab (window) also. Thus, I can go through Phil's posts and grab picture locations etc. without scrolling in this tab, or even refer to a post on a completely different thread. Another clear-as-mud technical explanation brought to you by Web-Ed :geek: ).

First, the Willets: congratulations on finding yet another nice brother/sister spanking in this strip! Too bad the actual swat takes place off-panel as we have seen before (someplace - I don't remember exactly where and I don't suppose it matters too much right now).
Is it just me or does Lil's skirt seem to be tantalizing clingy or sun dress like transparent? ;)
Image

There's certainly something that makes Lil's fanny look more womanly in this panel, Phil - maybe J.R. Williams' style was evolving on its own, or maybe he was driven by the increasingly erotic way characters were being drawn as the decades moved from the 30's through the 50's (see Al Capp's Lil' Abner in during these years for an illustration of what was going on) - this is 1943 now, and only two years after Will applied the paddle to Lil's stinging seat.

Her dress is certainly different, but also her knees are straight and legs parallel - two important items to make sure of when employing the bending-over position!

The Moon Mullins gag is rather good, and leads to a birthday paddling:

Image

This in fact qualifies for the Comics Spanking Data Base, and will eventually go into Gallery 2 as well.

Mutt and Jeff also qualifies, and was in fact already slated for Gallery 2 although I didn't have the posting date set yet.

:)

I think a better son-spanks-mother scene was done in Barney Google [later correction - this one is son-spanks-mother-in-law], and we will see it eventually although I'll probably have to censor the earlier panel in which the positions are reversed. As a matter of fact, I've got another "switching" spanking scene in which first mother spanks son and then son spanks mother, a rather remarkable occurrence, in a 50's humor magazine (similar to MAD) that I hope to present some time when we're all still alive :lol: - maybe 2019.

We come next to an interesting motif - bending over to receive a kick or (better) a paddle-swat as penance for some offense, including against the bendee herself. We saw this first in Venus #2 and we will be seeing it again in the future from another Golden Age Marvel comic I have discovered as soon as I can get a copy. It is a characteristic of the period and probably looks a little strange these days to anyone under 55. :)

Here is Phil's example from Terry:

Image

No swat or boot on this occasion, but although we wouldn't expect to see anything like this from a modern comic, we can hope for more from the Golden Age.

Then there's this one from Betty and Veronica, which is quite similar but with a nicer viewing angle:

I'm pretty sure Phil found another, similar panel which I'll go look for in a moment (I want it to have its own post if it exists).

Finally, we come to this panel from Al Capp:

Image

It's a nice shot with head up and back arched (no paddling, alas), although Capp was more into "booting" than spanking, more's the pity. He did of course give us several spankings in Li'l Abner up through 1954 (the last year I have the collected daily strips), and there might be more in the 1955-77 period we don't know about.

Good finds all, Phil, and thanks again! :D

This has been a big week for Dixie Dugan, and among other things Phil S. found this scene in which Dixie unwisely bends over near a billy-goat, with painful consequences:

Image

We had seen one similar example before somewhere in this topic, and I've been collecting quite a few to put them all together in one post. As a matter of fact, I've had the color version of this one in my files for some time. Let's take a peek:

Notice that the bending over panel has been truncated (it wasn't that great in any case), but the butting panel is full-sized :D .

Among the other "butt-ees" we'll be seeing at some future date are last week's spankee, Lena Pry, and the quite attractive Invisible Scarlet O'Neil.

One last example from this long, weary night: this is another Betty and Veronica example sent to me last year by Phil S. :ugeek: :

This is quite similar to the last one, with Betty managing to out-smart herself in her pursuit of Archie. In considering the apparent preponderance of the boot over the paddle, I am all the more grateful for Venus #2 and to that other similar Marvel scene (if I can ever get a good copy) where improvised paddles were used. Any more like them? Only time will tell.

The look on a angry Archie I thought he was going to turn Betty over his knee :lol: :lol: :lol:

One More From Dixie Dugan

Postby web-ed » Thu Mar 29, 2018 7:28 pm

Last week's Dixie Dugan special took so much time and effort that one item slipped through the cracks. It was a spanking mention from 1946, and we'll see it now.

And we all know exactly where that hairbrush is due to be applied, don't we? ;)

Hi web-ed,

I'm not sure I understand this one. I'm assuming that our potential spankee is young and still living at home with her parents. I also assume that she's either stayed out past her curfew or perhaps has sneaked out when she wasn't supposed to. Whatever it is, it would appear that our girl knew in advance that she would get a spanking but decided it would be worth getting a spanking if she got to do what she wanted. I dated a girl in high school who did exactly that so this brings back fond memories. She lied to me when she told me her dad had extended her curfew, knowing full well he would be waiting for her with his hairbrush when she got home :lol: . Thanks, Phil

The Bantam Prince

Postby web-ed » Thu Apr 05, 2018 9:29 pm

Our next example comes from The Bantam Prince in 1953 and features a couple of spanking mentions. A young woman named Conchita is practicing at being a matador while two boys watch her from a place of concealment. One of them, named "Slip" or "Flip" (we think it's "Flip") worries that she's going to spank him, which would have been of no interest to us. But when he's discovered, Conchita instead says that it's she who needs the spanking - now we're talking :lol: !

Image

Chief Strip Researcher Phil Sweetspot :ugeek: did not find any follow-up spanking, nor are any known to exist in this strip. In fact, I don't know anything about The Bantam Prince - Maurice Horn doesn't mention it in his Encyclopedia of Comics and the late Donald Markstein didn't catalog it either. Chalk it up as another missed opportunity for a boy (or two) to spank an older woman.

[Later edit] Looks like I goofed up on one point: Flip is a girl! And Conchita's sister, as a matter of fact. Phil S. has some more details in the next post.
