    247. The Short Life & Happy Times of the Shmoo (2002).

    Overlook Press in New York published this hard cover book in the fall of 2002. It combines the earliest Shmoo story from 1948 with Al Capp's "Return of the Shmoo" sequel from 1959. DKAA, the Li'l Abner licensing agent, issued this 1.25" button for promotional purposes, including the big Shmoo media party thrown at Illustration House in December 2002 in conjunction with NYC's MOCCA (Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art). This is the first pinback button depicting more than one Shmoo, and these two Shmoos are clearly in love. Great inexpensive Shmoo collectible while they last. (See also button #241.) $2.50

    Kitchen Sink Press published twenty-seven 12" x 9" volumes of Li'l Abner Dailies, many of which are still available in this web store.

    1.25 inch diameter

    See Li'l Abner Meets the Shmoo (Volume 14 from Kitchen Sink's series) for the complete origin story plus articles and pictures describing the countless toys and media attention, available from this web store. We also have Shmoo postcards and Shmoo Pins. See also our Shmoo Facts Sheetfor some amazing statistics about this character's popularity.

    One note, for serious button collectors, you may want to read the KSP BUTTON TEXT which explains the numbering systems for identifying the various buttons produced over the last 30 years, or see the COMPLETE KSP BUTTON LIST. The list is VERY long, so be patient while it loads.
