Created by American cartoonist, William Jackson Griffith, Zippy the iconic cartoon strip was born in San Francisco in 1970. Zippy The Pinhead, inspired by circus sideshows, was known for his oddly shaped head, polka dot clown suit, and bizarre social commentary. Equipped with a scrambled attention span and healthy diet of ding-dongs and taco sauce, the comic strip chronicled Zippy's neurotic experience through pop culture.

The Heritage Preservation Society together with Bill Griffith presents to you the limited edition Zippy the Zippo®. Only 100 made. Available online at www.upperplayground.com #upperplayground #zippy #billgriffith @zippo #sfheritagesociety #cartoon
