"Tijuana Bible" is the slang name for the clumsy porn pamphlets produced in the 1940s for horny WWII-era servicemen in need of masturbatory aids. Women of easy virtue, group sex, and rampant fornication were usually the main themes but, just like today, there was a niche-market for celebrity porn. The cartoonists put popular performers in sexual situations, both for laughs and for arousal. I've seen a bunch of them but the Laurel & Hardy version is kind of in a class of its own, as the men go together to visit a prostitute. I couldn't find any more pages, but I'm dying to know if they had a three-way.

It's Tijuana, not Tiajuana.

Eep, you are so right. Just fixed that. Thanks.

I've always heard Kenneth Anger (who's still around!) has a huge collection of these... would love to see a compendium of them, they're really the first 'fan fiction.'

You can find 8 compilations of these at Amazon plus two Gay ones. :^)
