Sometimes the rush of deadlines can produce some truly bizarre mistakes. For instance, check out the background through the doorway in the original panel.

Ladies and germs, I present—-the Magical Floating Tree of Romance!

Original panel---complete with floating vegetation---from First Kiss #9 (1959.)

  1. “One more joke about the “Farmer’s Daughter” and you’ll be pleasuring the sheep, Mister.!”

    • Hey, those sheep have feelings—especially that cute one with the warm nose.

    • “Embraceable Ewe”

  2. Actually, that tree looks like it has leaves on its roots. It does appear hovering, and the overall appearance is one I can only describe as Seussian.

  3. While not really looking like a winter scene, it COULD be a tree growing through a shrub on snow covered hill.

  4. The rest of the tree is off to the right of the doorframe so just a branch is visible. It’s on a hillside from the slope of the grass, so the clouds past the hill are visible. Not a mistake at all.

    • I’d agree with you forestman50, except that the green at the bottom of the branch/tree looks more like a bush than leaves on a tree. At least it does to me.
