Wish You Were Here, from Fred Opper


A Happy New Year 1906 from Fred Opper, Happy Hooligan and Hearst's Boston Sunday American; and a Happy New Year 2023 from Stripper's Guide.


Suddenly recalling Feiffer's book of president cartoons. In the preface to the Gerald Ford section he explains he always drew a little can atop Ford's head because Feiffer equated him with Happy Hooligan. A very obscure reference even then, although the can was made sort of relevant with the letters WIN for Ford's "Whip Inflation Now" motto.
