Al Hirschfeld Draws the Cast from ‘The HoneyMooners’ TV Show

Al Hirschfeld and icons from American TV, film and Broadway went together like a horse-and-carriage.
Hirschfeld’s simple black and white line drawings were fixtures in the Arts section of the Sunday New York Times for decades.
Any actor or actress knew they made it when Hirschfeld put pen to paper.

Detail from T-shirt

The above caricature was drawn by Al Hirschfeld for a museum retrospective dedicated to The Honeymooners back in the 1980s.
This drawing is on the front of the museum’s t-shirt.

One interesting tidbit regarding Hirschfeld’s drawings is that from 1945 to his death in 2003 he hid the name of his daughter “Nina” somewhere in the drawing.
Locating her name became a guessing game for fans.
Can you find “Nina” in the the snapshot below?
