Creator: Charles Addams
A long-time contributor of cartoons to The New Yorker magazine, Charles Addams specialized in whimsically grotesque scenes, which was evidently something of a case of Drawing What He Knew.

One set of his recurring characters became the basis for the television series (and later movies) The Addams Family. Addams also drew such classic one-off cartoons as a skiier somehow going around a tree on both sides at once; a moustachioed villain with a young damsel slung over his shoulder heading down into a subway, presumably to tie her to the tracks; and a Banana Peel lying on a busy city sidewalk, cordoned off by "caution" signs.
