Now, this partciular figure appears to be an animal of some kind. It's got a long snout, what appear to be ears on the top of it's head, and a tail. But it still takes on the basic upright human form. The paint suggests either a coat or perhaps a lightly colored chest. The arms are short and stubby, and the feet appear to be pretty large. There's also a long, skinny neck.
That, ladies and gentlemen, is supposed to be George Herrmiman's Ignatz Mouse. You know, this guy...
Regardless, who thought this looked anything like Ignatz. Honestly, it looks more like Krazy Kat to me! Tie a small piece of red ribbon around his neck and you're WAY closer to Krazy than Ignatz. I mean, wow. I see almost no resemblance to Ignatz at all here! Yeah, I know the materials weren't the most ideal for rendering a character like that, but holy cow, is that bad!
