Rube Goldberg's PHONEY FILMS ran off and on as a side panel in his weekday newspaper comics from roughly 1910 to The series anticipates the satires of movies that Harvey Kurtzman would later write in the early Mad comics.
Rube Goldberg's last non-advertising Sunday comic feature, Side Show, was a comic section inside a comic section, stuffed with inventions, panels, and whatever inspired Rube. The pages were reprinted in comic books. This one is from Crack Comics #1 (Quality Comics, 1942)
The author of THE ART OF RUBE GOLDBERG, Jennifer George, appears on CUNY's celebrated TV show, Eldridge and Co., to discuss her grandfather, his work, and the new book. http://www.cuny.tv/show/eldridgeandco
