This handbill is signed & doodled in pencil by the artist Stanley Mouse! This handbill has been professionally restored to offer the appearance and eye appeal of a Mint copy!

 

Here is an original first-printing example of a classic Family Dog handbill. The example you see here exhibits the Orange zebra stripes. Much like the original poster the color of the zebra stripes on this handbill varied throughout the first printing from light yellow to a deep orange color. The ORANGE versions like the one here are FAR SCARCER and harder to find than the yellow variants.

 

Designed by Stanley Mouse and Alton Kelley this handbill creates a stunning visual impact to the viewer. It should be noted; this image was also used by Gary Grimshaw for the Zebra Man Grande Ballroom poster just weeks later.

 

A MINT copy of this same scarce orange/dark red variant handbill sold for over $2 300.00 in another public auction during February 2013.
