The author is a Disney animator and producer and musician. He presents altered art, for humor, adding his own touch to famous canvass Art. For example, putting hair rollers on the Mona Lisa. Introduction by Jonathan Winters, quoting Twain: "People have unquestionably one really effective weapon - laughter". Most of the humor is from anachronisms painted in.

Famous works of art, with joke alterations. The Mona Lisa in hair curlers, the Blue Boy with sunglasses, a shark added to Manet's boating scene, Whistler's mother watching TV, and so on. Briefly amusing, but sophomoric. It may have been original when first published in the 1960s, but the internet is full of such photo-edited jokes now. ( )
