    What, doesn’t like intruders? Especially grubby-fingered little children trying to seek refuge form a blizzard? How rude!

    Store or hospital, it looks like the kind of place where you’d find Lio.

    Interestingly enough I’ve heard about these “Doll Hospitals” last Dec. Must be one of those very old ones when TV was still Black and White…

    He looks like one of the Dick Tracy villains.

    Rooster Cogburn is a Doll Doctor?

    Is that an eye-patch? I wonder if this is a nod to Uncle/Godfather Drosselmeyer from E.T.A. Hoffmann’s “The Nutcracker” who, according to some retellings of the story and the ballet, brought the toys to life: he is usually portrayed as having an eyepatch. Would also be pretty interesting if this character was named Dr. Coppelius, a doll maker, also taken from some stories by E.T.A. Hoffmann.

    Then again, I could be just reading too deeply into anther cartoon. But this would be pretty awesome.

    I wondered if it might be a jeweler’s loupe he was wearing — for doing fine repairs
