A prince, sword hanging at his side, somewhat humble-looking for one of his stature yet dignified, sits alone in a room in a castle. The form of a mighty dragon slinks past the door, and suddenly the dragon swerves around and peeks its head through the door, grinning evilly. The prince looks up, looks upon the creature, grimaces, and says

 "Darn it all, and just after I sprayed the whole castle with FLIT!"


This cartoon was one of Theodore Geisel (Dr. Seuss)'s early works. The actual manufacturers of the FLIT insecticide actually somehow managed to come across a copy of the cartoon, really liked it, and gave Geisel a job in their advertising department. This was a long time before he started doing children's books.
