“Nearly everyone knows Hy Moyer, the originator of the illustrated cartoons, "Nothing but the Truth." Hy Moyer is now being teamed with Joe Carr in a series of programmes scheduled for 10.30 Saturday night, or immediately following the end of the hockey broadcast. Known as the "Cartoon of the Air" the Moyer-Carr combination presents some very original oddities in the news. It's one of those programmes quite different from the ordinary run of entertainment. CFRB, Toronto”- Flesherton Advance, Nov. 1941
Harry B. Moyer's Nothing But The Truth was a popular front page cartoon in the Toronto Telegram in the late twenties and thirties. Hy Moyer drew comic pages for Bell Features of Toronto in the forties doing various humour cartoon pages like Dibs & Dabs in Active Comics and the stereotypical Java Bean in Super-Duper Comics #3 (featuring the last appearance of Adrian Dingle's Nelvana of the Northern Lights). Below are two of Moyers Canadian postcards. A 1915 article by Moyer entitled Art and the Newspaper can be read HERE.
