Was anybody else really distracted by the fact that the baby looks like a 60-year-old midget?

    It’s the glasses.

    Big nose, glasses, long face. It definitely looks like a 60 year old “baby”. Maybe that’s why they refused to pay the ransom

    Everyone is wearing glasses except the blonde lady, including the other lady’s baby. Maybe it’s a Cornered thing.

    5/6 people in that comic have the exact same face. The only difference for #6 is the lack of glasses.

    … Also, why the heck does a baby who still needs to be carried in a papoose have glasses?

    And of course the glasses makes the baby’s baldness look like old man baldness, not newborn baldness.

    The blonde is wearing glasses; Mike just over-tipped (slanted?) them in this panel. There are many examples of side views where the temple connects at the bottom and sometimes slant forward a little. The glasses on the being in the carriage is an exception (hmm.. as are the blonde lady’s; were Mike’s hands a little shaky the day he drew this?)

    I also mistook her glasses for huge eyelashes at first.

    Both babies look like old people. The short human (kid?) looks like a short adult. Conclusion? The cartoonist can’t draw young people.

    Apparently he also has trouble with eyes.

    O. Henry got there first with “The Ransom of Red Chief”. And I think it was a Punch cartoon that had a couple of gangsters offering yet another ransom reduction with a fat adult in a child’s sailor suit in the background.

    For a while my Mom would throw people off by saying “We have three — one of each.” Then my younger brother was born and she had to retire the joke.

    @ Joseph K [2]: My thoughts exactly.

    @ Mark in Boston [7]: Yes, but at least the cartoonist doesn’t put a squirrel in the corner.

    @ James Pollock [9]: You mean Alfred Hitchcock drew this? (He has a cameo in every movie he’s ever directed, for those of you who don’t get the reference.)

    @ Chakolate [10]: Maybe the cartoonist wears glasses? That would connect a couple of threads on this page …

    @ Olivier (14) - M.A.’s mother’s “one of each” (@12) means “One of mine, one of his, and one of ours.“.

    Oh. Thanks. I was going for surrealism, which is probably the intent, as the usual question following the number of children is their genders.

    @ Olivier (17) - I would never have guessed “surrealism”. One might think (given recent progress on social issues) that it might (now) be a reference to a transsexual child, but that sort of an explanation doesn’t fit into the time frame that we are talking about here.

    Of course it’s up to Olivier to confirm or deny but I expect the “one of each” was intended to get the interlocutor thinking, “one boy, one girl, and one ???”.

    I think MiB #7 may be right! (So far just reviewing the ones on CIDU that come up for the tag.) Maybe it’s as speculated, he just has trouble with drawing eyes otherwise.

    But whatever the explanation, the glasses is a more consistent generalization than my previous observation that often there is a street corner, or corner of some office walls.

    “You mean Alfred Hitchcock drew this? (He has a cameo in every movie he’s ever directed, for those of you who don’t get the reference.)”

    In the intro to “Alfred Hitchcock Presents”, he would step up to a profile drawing.

    Er, look for yourself.

    Re Alfred Hitchcock - he made cameos in most of the movies he directed, but not all. https://the.hitchcock.zone/wiki/The_Hitchcock_Cameos

    A simple case of progeria- probably the one nobody would pay ransom for - people are heartless.

    Victor Borge used to tell the “one of each” joke. He told of an obscure composer who was a Portuguese, married a Portogoose, and they had three Portogoslings, one of each.

    Maybe he was thinking about the kid who told Art Linkletter that his family was soon going to have a new baby. “Mom hopes it’s a girl. Dad hopes it’s a boy. I hope it’s a cocker spaniel.”
