Issue Notes

Published in 1946 by the Gould-Stoner Company (the first name of Gould is as yet unknown) and was copyrighted on October 8th. It was a child's activity pamphlet, 16 pages in length, containing puzzles, games and drawings by Stoner throughout. It was distributed through department stores, and, apparently, by 20th Century-Fox. Fox bought the pamphlet from Gould-Stoner and was selling it to exhibitors, who would, in turn, distribute it to movie goers.

Unfortunately, in 1945, Fox had bought another publication with the name of "Christmas Play Book" and the publishers of that were now suing both Fox and Gould-Stoner for copyright infringement and damages of $100,000.

The outcome of the suit isn't known, but the fact that no other publication was forth-coming from Gould-Stoner seems to indicate that it effectively killed the company.
