Oodles of Doodles XCVII

Here's something you haven't seen previously at Oodles of Doodles. These two doodles hail from the back of kiddie records, the kind that were marketed towards children as playthings as much as recordings. Kids would take these records and play them over and over and over again until the grooves wore down to the far side. So I figured I was lucky to find a couple in decent shape, or at least good enough shape to scan in these doodles. The doodle above is from 30 Song Stories For Rainy Days (Twinkle Records TW-8), while the one below is from Party Time Dance & Game Songs (Twinkle Records TW-18). The first record has a credit of Burt Portnoy for liner art, but the second LP is anonymous. Turns out that Mr. Portnoy was previously mentioned here at Ernie (Not Bert) as the designer on a Christmas LP. It's a small world after all.
