The King Features licensing program picked up considerably when the animated cartoons started to be broadcast on television in the early 1960s. Some of the products featured all three stars of the “Comic Kings” series – Beetle Bailey, Krazy Kat and Snuffy Smith.
There was also a 3–on–1 Golden Record that featured all three characters. This rare item is available now on eBay for $20. It originally sold for 49¢.
After the original “Comic Kings” series aired on television in the mid-1960s, the King Features licensing program started to taper off.
