One of the earliest surviving 'toons from the 1989 thru 1991 period. There were many more FnP 'toons done in an Air Force logbook that have been lost, most likely thrown away. Yes. That is a duck. In the early Fred 'toons he had a pet duck because it was ridiculous . I liked drawing the duck because he had no head: just eyes, a beak, and a tuft of feathers. I phased the duck out. They may have eaten it.
