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."

When that day in the distant future comes and they put Amba in her Great Pyramid of Cheop-al Hill, it's nice to know the cat will be there also, degaussing the monitor for All Eternity.


That's clearly not a flat panel monitor!


Unless it's a 2-D cat!

It's our TV, in fact -- defnitely not flat panel either!


He's really grown, hasn't he?
I love his colouring.

i only came up with two, "How cute!" but I imagine I can come up with another 998 if pressed.


Cute? That cat is displaying the haughtiness of ancient Egyptian royalty. No cute there at all.

The old, conventional CRT-type monitors are great places for cats. They're warm, like fires or radiators.

Indeed, back in the day in rooms that were filled with monitors we used to turn off the heat entirely, even in the Chicago winter. The monitors (and bodies) heated the room quite well enough.


I love that, Annie. First pic I've pulled off a website purely for personal appreciation in a long while. Go, Rainey!


"Monitoring" your activities I see, and with all the grace in the world. Beautiful!
