Henry, Animated!

Yet another Ed-U-Card game with flip animation on the back. This one, called Easy 3’s, features an eclectic assortment of characters from the King Features Syndicate stable. It has characters from Thimble Theatre, but not Popeye. It has Dagwood, but not Blondie. And the animation stars that peculiar mutant kid, Henry. When I was a kid I thought Henry and Popeye were related because they had similar chins and were similarly homely.

The game itself enjoins players to collect three fragments of each character to form a whole. The instructions call it “A new game of educational fun for children. Helps train powers of observation and relationship needed in developing reading skills.”

I hope you enjoy the show!
