    It's beloved iced-cream icon and summertime favorite Bubble O Bill:lol 
    This is small 8X10 including the frame. I believe Bubble O Bill made his debut in 1986.
    I didn't notice that I forgot the bullet hole in his hat until after I took the photo.

    Let's see.. Bubble O Bill is an ice cream bar that was made by the Good Humor company in 1985. He looked like a cowboy and had a big gum ball for a nose. apparently Bubble O Bill is still available in Australia & NZ by a company called streets. There's a Wikipedia page but I'm not sure if we're allowed to post links. He was one of the first "character" based ice cream bars much the like Spongebob or Bart Simpson you might get from the Ice Cream Man today. As an old timer (34) I'm nostalgic for such things :wink:
