The fifth installment includes:

  • Bugs saving Christmas from the Old Man of the Mountain;
  • Porky Pig finding the error of his ways in the Bizzaro world of Backward’s Valley;
  • Tweety and Sylvester tearing a department store apart as the hungry cat tries to fulfill the flighty bird’s wishes;
  • Elmer and Daffy squaring off with explosive results as a parade loses its float;
  • Bugs and Elmer headlining in a one-page gag;
  • Petuna Pig with piggy bank woes that Pork cannot fix;
  • Little used Henery Hawk making an appearance and earning a shiner;
  • Mary Jane and Sniffles forming an unusual bond to locate their run away gifts;
  • Porky and Petuna returning for a mashed up, mix up; and
  • Bugs isn’t the only one to suffer when his pretending becomes pretentious.

All in 100 pages for a quarter.

While a bargain today, a quarter in 1955 is currently the equivalent of $4.70. Of course a regular comic book runs four dollars. Maybe it’s still a bargain.
