"The hard core of the Kurtzman crew are all roughly the same age and have known each other since boyhood. Kurtzman, Elder, Jaffee and Humbug Managing Editor Harry Chester all attended The High School of Music and Art in New York, where Kurtzman brightened the bulletin boards with crude mimeographed satire while Jaffee and Elder convulsed the lunchroom crowd with comic pantomime and an extensive repertoire of vocal sound effects."

 -Rolf Malcolm, Playboy, Dec 1957
