For Did Somebody Leave The Toilet Seat Up And You Didn't Notice? The Accompanying Two Spreads Depict Two Feet Sticking Up From Inside The Toilet Bowl, Followed By The Resulting Shrunken Outfit The Boy Wears. Did Your Gravy Touch Your Peas? Shows Terrified Animated Peas Awash In A Wave Of Gravy On A Dinner Plate, Screaming Flood! And Every Pea For Himself!
