I ordered and paid for this art commission quite awhile ago from artist Patrick Owsley, who had other pressing commitments before he could get to it, but this was worth the wait. I wanted a piece similar to his Hanna-Barbera piece with the heads of the major players who starred in their cartoons. As you can see there's Underdog, Tennessee Tuxedo, Tooter Turtle, Commander McBragg, etc. Thanks, Patrick!

I was watching Season 2 of "Car 54, Where Are You?" and on the episode entitled "Benny the Bookie's Last Chance", there is a comic book spinner near the end of the episode. This episode also features guest appearances from Gerald Hiken and Margaret Hamilton. On image one below, the man is reading a "Fox and the Crow" #77 (January 1963) comic book. On the spinner rack (which clearly states "Educational Fawcett Books"), you can see "Donald Duck" #85 (December 1962), "Sad Sack and the Sarge" #35 (February 1963) and "Fightin' Army"#50 (January 1963). On the second image, you can also see the corner of "Mighty Mouse" #157 (January 1963) and "Little Audrey and Melvin" #5 (January 1963)!
