    Bill Elder (as Eldder) MAD #26 Addams Family Illustration Original Art (EC, 1955). "It's so funny the way Poppa's eyes bug out because he doesn't have the Sanofranized label." This is a double-parody, as it lampoons both the Sanforization ads and the Charles Addams cartoons from the New Yorker featuring the Addams Family. This is from 1955, so well before the TV series was even in development. So the images of Gomez, Morticia, Lurch, Wednesday, Pugley, and Uncle Fester are based solely on the Addams cartoons. Bill Elder signed as "Eldder" in tribute to Charles Addams. Crafted in ink and ink wash, with white paint in the margins, on illustration board with an image area of 6" x 7". In Excellent condition.
