'Don't worry about the world coming to an end today.
It is already tomorrow in Australia.'
Beloved American Cartoonist, nicknamed 'Sparky', Creator of the comic strip series, PEANUTS.
Widely regarded as one of the most influential cartoonists of all time;
"Peanuts pretty much defines the modern comic strip, so even now it's hard to see it with fresh eyes. The clean, minimalist drawings, the sarcastic humor, the unflinching emotional honesty, the inner thoughts of a household pet, the serious treatment of children, the wild fantasies, the merchandising on an enormous scale, in countless ways; Schulz blazed the wide trail that most every cartoonist since has tried to follow."
~ Calvin and Hobbes Creator Bill Watterson, 2007
"Mr. Toad is ego-maniacal and prone to lose his temper at the least bit of annoyance. He can be quite jovial at times but is quick to chastise others who aren't helping him achieve his needs. Above all, Mr. Toad's
number one priority is always himself, whether that applies to money, power, or sex."
Griffith said that Mr. Toad is; "...representative of an out-of-control, all-consuming id character. The id, in Freud's structural model of the human psyche, is the unorganized part of a personality that contains basic, instinctual drives, particularly sexual and aggressive impulses.
Which actually describes Mr. Toad perfectly."
~ Bill Griffith 2003
