Ehh, Trick or Treat, Doc
Halloween seems tailor made for a trickster like Bugs Bunny, and that Oscar-winning wabbit headlined several issues of a Giant "Trick n Treat" comic, each with spectacularly spooky-yet-silly cover art. This example from the fourth edition of Bugs Bunny's Halloween Fun has particularly winning artwork with Bugs mischievously giving the business to straight man (make that straight ham) Porky Pig. Published in 1956, this Trick or Treat bag of comic book candy hit the stands the same year the Halloween-themed Looney Tune Broomstick Bunny was released to theaters, co-starring the "ugliest one of all," Witch Hazel.
