More P.T.

I wish there was more that I could say about P.T. Bimbo than the little I know in the previous post. I have never read an interview with Schneider about thos strip, which seems like a labour of love. The initials P.T. of the main character of course come from the famous American circus manager P.T. Barnum, about whom the internet has a whole lot of interesting and true and half true facts and quotes. I don't know if he was a litle guy, such as Scheiner's P.T., but I guess not. The sarcastic and angry little guy was a common feature in many strips... including the current Dutch psychiatrist newspaper strip character Sigmund, by long time Johnny Hart fan Peter de Wit. I will post about him and Sigmund later.

Here are a few more sundays featuring two of my favorite characters - the sweepers. In fact, I have the original art to the last one. Although the one before that is a better version of the same joke.
