Comic Book Ads: Smith Cough Drops!

Can you believe that a medicine like Smith Cough Drops would've advertised in the Golden Age Fawcetts? Well, you don't have to, just check these out!

This is typical of the original series of ads... where Trade and Mark, the Smith Brothers, help out a child with a cough who can't do something they want!

A different series of ads were started, featuring the adventures of two children, Nip and Tuck:

That series didn't last long (the above were all the ads I could find), but they switched to offering prizes for kids who took the cough drops!

  1. These were always my favorite cough drops as a kid, I'd eat them like candy.
