Ad Lad

Andrew Christine was one of the artists for 'Ad Lad' in Whoopee! comic.

It was about a cheeky rascal who spent all his time skulking around television studios attempting to get his toothy face in on commercials. We were supposed to chuckle at the antics of this "lovable rogue", but he irritated most folks to death -- especially when you think of how much valuable set-up time and footage he was costing each production.
