Format: Paperback
It's disappointing, though not surprising, that the stories in "Marge's Tubby" began to slip a bit in quality after the first year or two. John Stanley was still doing all the writing chores for "Marge's Little Lulu"--at least three or four stories per issue--and Tubby was usually in two-thirds of those stories as well. And this may account for a couple of the stories in Tubby's own series reading like "Lulu versus Tubby and the boys" stories with Gloria or Wilbur filling the part of Lulu, or of plot lines about a boy or boys getting caught in girls' clothes, or no clothes at all.

There are still many good stories in these issues, and a few that are downright bizarre. "The Guest in the Ghost Hotel," with its overtones of doom and death (like something out of William Hope Hodgson) must have given nightmares to some of its readers and at least a double-take from some parents. Stanley must have been happy with the result, because he repeats the ghost conceit in the very next issue, but with greatly diminished results. The "little men from Mars" keep reappearing too, usually with a fantastic gimmick that rescues a deadended storyline. But stories like "A Gift for Gloria" prove that Stanley could tell clever stories with surprise turnarounds that didn't need extraterrestrial help.

Stanley repeated himself more and more as the series progressed. The "Marilyn Muscle" story (Tubby posing as a fearsome girl cousin) is repeated an issue or two later in "The Gentleman." Tubby's nearly identical but tiny cousin Chubby has intriguing possibilities as a tyke who speaks plain English only when he so chooses, but when Stanley uses him a second time, the character is merely filling the role usually played by Alvin.

Print quality is excellent. All covers and gag pages are included.

Get one before they disappear. The stories are really good and if you like nudity, check out the one page cartoons. All very innocent, of course. Tubby remains the quintessential boy and his cleverness shows in the stories as well as his spurts of kindness and good will. No Lulu on this, but Gloria and Janie supply the feminine touch.
