    Description

    Fontaine Fox Toonerville Folks Daily Comic Strip Original Art (McNaught Syndicate, c. 1950-60s). Titled "Spring Tonic", this daily single-panel gag features the actual Toonerville Trolley, which was almost a character in its own right in this crazed and sometimes surreal series. Created in ink over graphite on 8" x 9" Bristol board, it was later "Hand Colored for Richard H. Commer by Ole Man Fox himself" as the inscription reads on the illustration backing board that is matted with the artwork. The frame-ready mat size is 13" x 15". This piece is slightly tanned with a small bit of handling wear; however overall in Excellent condition. From the Estate of Richard Commer.
