About this Item

Cartooning duo who produced the popular "There Oughta Be a Law" syndicated comic strip (1963-81) begun by Al Fagaly in 1944 (through 1963). Original India ink drawing, 1p, 12½" X 9¼", n.p., 1976 December 23. Near fine. Single panel depicting what we assume to be the cartoonists themselves (their features are mostly hidden) hard at work before drafting tables. Under the heading "Last-Minute Gift Suggestion Dep't.," one of the pair asks, "What can I get for my wife that's quite expensive but not too flashy?" The other replies, "How about a jar of instant coffee?" Conclusion: "Today's LAW: 'And nothing is stirring in our house either!'" Pencilled draft faintly visible beneath. In addition to the neatly lettered "Whipple and Borth" signature at lower left, this piece is signed a second time in "think pink" ink. Bookseller Inventory # 18013
