241. Maxfield Parrish Parody/Cartoon

June 16, 2010

Q: I recall a beautiful three-panel cartoon done in a Maxfield Parrish style called “Who Dropped the Orange on the Fairy?”

A: Don’t remember that one. Duane in the Comments says it might be from the Harvard Lampoon. If you, dear reader, know the answer, please post it in a comment.


I could be wrong, as I sometimes am, but I think possibly that was in a Harvard Lampoon Issue and NOT National Lampoon. Please give me time to research my archives and I will be back in a couple of weeks with my answer!
