HARVEY KURTZMAN AND WILL EDLER LITTLE ANNIE FANNY PRELIMINARY ORIGINAL ART!
Little Annie Fanny is a comic series created by Harvey Kurtzman and Will Elder that debuted in the October 1962 issue of the men's magazine Playboy.
The title of the strip is a parody of that of Harold Gray's Little Orphan Annie. The comic follows the escapades of Annie Fanny, a tall, blond, statuesque young woman who finds herself in trouble and naked in almost every episode. The feature ran sporadically from 1962 to 1988.
Offered here is a preliminary for an Annie Fanny cartoon, featuring the sexy Annie and Melvin Mole!
In the second issue of MAD, the classic "Mole" was unleashed on fandom. The story depicted the successive efforts of prisoner Melvin Mole to tunnel away from the prison, first with a spoon, then with a toothpick and finally with a nostril hair. The wild exaggeration in this story left such a strong impression that it was often quoted ("Dig! Dig!") and even referenced years later in a "Psychology Today" illustration!
