Goodenough Gismo

  • Gismo39
    This is the classic children's book, Goodenough Gismo, by Richmond I. Kelsey, published in 1948. Nearly unavailable in libraries and the collector's market, it is posted here with love as an "orphan work" so that it may be seen and appreciated -- and perhaps even republished, as it deserves to be. After you read this book, it won't surprise you to learn that Richmond Irwin Kelsey (1905-1987) was an accomplished artist, or that as Dick Kelsey, he was one of the great Disney art directors, breaking your heart with "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," and "Bambi."

I love your new term and will embrace it!


Sadly that term is already taken for a television show for kids, but if it just came to you, then that's great, i guess. :)


Hmm, it seems it has been independently invented many times, so I guess none of us can claim it's "taken" or slap a copyright on it. (Titles can't be copyrighted.) It's possible that we all unconsciously stole it from the first user, but more probable that it's just a word that's bursting to exist.
