Not to rain on anyone's parade, but to me that drawing looks a lot more like Harry Morgan (also on Dragnet and, more famously, MASH) than it does Jack Webb.

Just sayin'. . .

I don't see Harry Morgan, but the two complete set of lips on either side of the face leave me slightly queasy.

Dude looks like that one Twilight Zone ("Eye of the Beholder", I think) where Ellie May Clampett has the surgery to try to look normal and oh noes! Normal people look piggish!

But yes, disturbing. Still cool, though.

I love it! The eyes yell "Jack Webb" to me.

This makes me wonder if Dave ever finished that (mythical?) commission of the British royal family as aardvarks....
