    Note:
    This figure was originally commission by the underground enthusiast and publisher Bob Sidebottom for his San Francisco comic book store, People's Comix Gallery, San Francisco. This is one of the original five cutout figures that Robert Crumb did for Bob Sidebottom's underground comics store in the early 1970s.

    This figure was originally in the collection of famed French collector Didier Moiselet in Paris who describes it as "the expression of vice, abject and cowardness." Among the original five figures that Crumb created, it would be second only to the Mr. Natural figure in desirability for collectors. The Lizard Girl, The Dirty Dog, and the Hippy Girl were originally in the collection of Jerry Weist and then sold privately to another collector in the 1990s. The five figures can be seen in a photograph by Clay Geerdes published in Jay Kennedy's The Official Underground and Newave Price Guideon page ten.
