Oodles of Doodles XCV

Here's another spectacular doodle from a long-lost age of innocence. This young man is probably about to get smacked by this young girl. Take a look at his left hand. It seems to be getting pretty close to her knee. You know that can only lead to trouble. This doodle comes from The Ames Brothers With Sid Ramin's Orchestra-Smoochin' Time (RCA Victor LSP-1855, 1958), and is signed with the initials RR. (You've seen the Ames Brothers before at Oodles of Doodles here.) I'm pretty sure I've seen those RR initials before, too, but I can't seem to find them. I'll keep hunting. Ah, here it is. (In case you're having trouble spotting the initials on this doodle, look at the front center of the couch. It's hidden in the carvings.) Did I mention the front cover of this LP? It's a little creepy, with the Ames Brothers standing in the bushes smiling for the camera while a couple makes out in the dark behind them. Weird...
