Beautiful - thank you! I had only seen Cow On The Moon before. And now this is the second time this week that I have seen the depiction of a cat in a tuba.

Minor content warning: Cowboy Jimmy depicts suicide as part of a joke near the end of the cartoon.

Oh neat, I remember these! My first girlfriend was half Croatian, and if I'm remembering right, she always had a Dusan Vukotic poster from her grandparents hanging in her room.
