Ron, what an excellent selection. Just when I thought the subject had been exhausted (because compared to other paperback cover themes, South Seas ones are fairly rare), a whole new batch is posted!

Judging by the quality of the scans, I take it these covers are from your own library?


Here's a promising but ultimately disappointing find:



Turns out that 95% of the jokes in this book are from the fertile "Stranded on a Desert Isle" genre...



...which, with not one Hula girl or other South Sea icon playing a part, at best could be termed "Castaway" Cartoons.

The other 5% are from the equally rich "Whitey in Cannibal Cauldron" joke genre, which is clearly African pop, nowhere near the South Seas.



So even back then, confusion and arbitrary-ness about labeling the genres reigned...Sigh!

(And NO, this thread is not about the above joke genres, so don't post any more, please!)

Sorry, someone did earlier. And it's also in the beginning of the BOT...

But it's a great one, so as long as you don't fill the rest of the page with it..

There are south seas cannibal cartoons...but I won't post them in this thread.
I think I recall reading that some ship in the 17th century didn't bother landing on Hawaii or Tahiti because they thought it was inhabited by maneaters.

If you got'em, post'em --in their own thread, under a general title like "South Sea Cartoons" (as there are many non-Cannibal ones). This will inspire others to post theirs, and voila, we got a good thing goin'!

Here's a noir story about the seedy underside of Laguna Beach at (that notorious tropical rum bar) The Purple Parrot.

Great thread and truly inspirational:

Movie 1957


Book 1959


Mosaic 2009


Again, it's all (unfortunately) about covering up the naughty bits.

As Picasso (allegedly) said: "Good Artists borrow, great Artists steal"
