Title Drawing; John Falter; Cartoon
Object Name Drawing
Description Three three cell cartoon strips drawn in pencil. The top strip features two stick figures and a large ladder to the proper left. One figure has a square head and the other a round head. In the first cell the two figures are on the ground near the ladder and each has a conversation bubble with handwritten sayings (consistent throughout strips), "Wonder why he draws us so small?" "I guess cause we are just nobodies" In the second cell there the square headed figure is climbing the ladder. The top figure says "I'm going up and ask him" and the other figure says "Watch it" In the third cell the artist apparently yells "SHADDUP" and the figure on the ladder falls down it. The other figure is running away and says "That's proof"

The second strip features the same two stick figures. In the first cell the square headed one says "He's in a black mood today" and the other figures is standing next to him with an umbrella. In the second cell both figures are under the umbrella and there's a large black drop coming from the top proper left of the cell. In the third the drop has plopped on the ground and the two figures are exiting the cell and saying "Haa Haa Missed Us."

In the third strip it appears the artist is yelling down "Anybody Home?" In the next cell "Huh" then in the third cell you can see the head of one of the stick figures peeking out from a door in the ground and saying "huh-unh"

Beneath the three strips is the huh-unh term written twice in differing styles.
