Plop was a DC humor comic in the 70's with an impressive roster of creators including Wally Wood, Basil Wolverton and Sergio Aragones. I mainly liked it for Aragones, I was a big fan of his cartoons in Mad Magazine, and it was nice to see his work on a DC title, in color. This was a request/challenge and when I first heard it I had no idea of how to make it work, as there wasn't a central character for Plop along the lines of Alfre E. Neuman. I chose one of the unmistakable Wolverton creations from one of the covers instead.
I don't have any Wolverton in my art collection, but I do have a nice Groo sketch by Aragones:
