In the distance can be seen the conductor waving his baton. The tympanist's kettles are very cartoonish, resting on tripods of three sticks bound together. Large t-handle tension rods are protruding from the drums. His mallets have large ends and the strings binding them on the shaft can be seen. He is a chubby, somewhat bald character (much like myself) with a few curlycues of hair coming from his smooth head. He has an uncertain look on his face as if he is about to play a difficult passage. His music stand can be seen with this written on the pages:

Boom, boom, boom, boom,
boom, boom, boom, boom,
boom, boom, boom, boom,
boom, boom, boom, boom,
boom, boom, boom, boom,
boom, boom, boom, boom,

If anyone can find this cartoon and, better yet, post it, I would appreciate it.
I'm still looking. Anyone have an idea?
