Milt Gross, Funny Animals and Meanest Man plus Meat

One of Milt Gross' specialties (almost everything he does is a specialty) but he really defines "funny animals".

I'd swear Jim Tyer must be hugely influenced by Milt Gross. Look at the eyes and smiles. And of course the craziness.

Milton Knight is a modern heir to the Gross/ Tyer school. New York cartooning. Ever see his Hugo comics? Great!

Milt Gross also draws the funniest sausages.

Great funny stuff!

He must have spent allot of time being in a zoo or something. Too come up with such designs.

Are there interviews from him? Where he talks about inspiration.

Who arrived on the scene first, Milton Gross or Billy DeBeck?

Can someone explain to me what the heck is going on in that Meanest Man strip?
