Potato Head New Year!

I drew this one back in 1995 for the Disney TV Newsletter. It was originally published in black and white back then but I added some color to it tonight to spruce it up a bit, but here's the back story:
Mr. Potato Head was in such a hurry to get to the party before midnight that he dashed out the door without his kissin' lips. So there he stood, still wearing his 'I'm stupid, so don't give me any responsibilities' work lips. Moral: ALWAYS keep a spare set of kissin' lips in your glove box!

                            HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

  5. What a great concept, Ted! Way to see something 'ordinary' like a toy's spare parts and create something funny and whimsical with it. Hope you have a good one tonight! See you in 2013, my friend! Happy New Year!
