TIPPY TEEN "What's Happening, Baby?"

When middle-aged men write stories about hipsters...
...the results are going to be...interesting, offering a look at how the middle class viewed beatniks in the 1960s!
If the plotting and art style on this tale from 1968's Tippy Teen #19 reads like an Archie Comics story, that's because many of their writers and artists (who were freelancers) including Sam Schwartz, Harry Shorten, and Dan DeCarlo, also worked on Tippy strips for the short-lived Tower Comics in the 1960s!
If anyone can tell me who of that crew did this tale, I'll post the info and credit the poster!
 Happy Easter from Tippy!
Though there were a number of Easter-themed comic stories (and even entire comic books) in the 1940s and 1950s, this is the only Easter-themed comic I could find from the Silver Age!
Next week:
We haven't decided yet what it'll be, but we can guarantee that...
You'll Cry Your Eyes Out if You Miss It!
(Oh, you've heard that, eh?)
And now a word from out sponsor...
