vico-frontvico-backvico-labelVico Torriani was the king of Swiss pop-music in the 50s and 60s. This is him twisting, yodeling and skiing “until the doctor comes” as we say here in Berlin…

VICO TORRIANI, Alles fährt Ski


The  first shy steps of the Existentialists in Zürich:

“What? On the main street? Are you crazy! My boss could see me!”


“Come over here, you coward, where there is still some snow!”

These  cartoons are from the Swiss satire magazine “Nebelspalter” No.17,  April 1951. Probably the world`s oldest satire-magazine, “Nebelspalter”  has been running for 134 years!

    Exellent!!! Thank you very much for the songs of Vico and for the cartoons, too. Do you know, who’s the artist of the first picture? :)

  4. Rolf says:

    The artist of the first cartoon was Ernst Schoenenberger. His drawings were famous in Switzerland, named after himself as “Schoenenbergerli”. In the late 40s and early 50s the “Nebelspalter-Verlag” issued two folders with separate prints of “Schoenenbergerli”.

    Thanks for the Information. Great to finally have have a name of the artist. I should have done a little more research in 2008.

    Schöne Grüsse aus Berlin
