Caricature by George Wachsteter (1911-2004) of comedian-singer-banjoist Jerry Van Dyke, brother of Dick Van Dyke, a host for the 1963 new game show `Picture This`, which debuted over CBS-TV on June 25, 1963 as a Tuesday-night summer replacement for `The Jack Benny Program` until it left the air Sept 17, 1963. Critics panned it, some describing it as `an idiotic trifle` that trapped Van Dyke`s talents. Jerry finally hit comedy pay dirt years later as Luther on ABC-TV`s Emmy-winning sitcom, `Coach` (1989-1997). On 14" x 22" illustration board, for the cover of the Sunday, August 4, 1963 New York Journal-American Pictorial Magazine and TView section. Includes original copies of the mag. 14" x 9 1/2" image. MInor soiling.
