Jules Feiffer (1929) is name-checked on the cover of "Freak Out!" (1966) under the heading "These People Have Contributed Materially In Many Ways To Make Our Music What It Is. Please Do Not Hold It Against Them". He was a cartoonist/playwright, born in New York City, beloved by 60's bohemians. Influenced a lot of folks (Woody Allen, Gary Trudeau). His satirical cartoons first appeared in the Village Voice in 1956 and immediately established themselves as the quintessential images of bohemian/neurotic New Yorkers; the cartoons became nationally syndicated in 1959; and in 1992 he became a regular contributor to The New Yorker. He also wrote several plays, including "Little Murders" (1967), and filmscripts, notably "Carnal Knowledge" (1971).
