Fictional characters running for president is a time-honored bit of fun for election year: Popeye and Pogo campaigned and even Gracie Allen (of the George Burns and Gracie Allen comedy team of radio and TV fame) threw her hat into the ring. And Mickey Mouse remains a popular write-in "candidate." As I mentioned back here, the Hanna-Barbera gang ran a candidate or two of their over the years, starting with their first big star of the small screen, Huckleberry Hound. In addition to this 1960 Harvey Eisenberg-drawn comic book, Huck's campaign also included buttons and an LP complete with campaign songs. You can read all about it (and read the comic book) at Hanna-Barbera expert Yowp's blog. Also be sure and check out Hanna-Barbera/Gold Key expert Joe Torcivia's report on true-blue Huck's run for the White House.
