The Zübits

IPA pronunciation: [zybɪts]


Charlie & The Electric Co.

This is the earliest example of a Zübit cartoon from around 1977, even before they were named "The Zübits". The name went through a various combinations in punctuation by the use and removal of umlauts over the u and i. Note the umlauts over the u and i, the ï was later changed to a regular i). This original drawing was sent to the Creem and the Rolling Stone magazines along with other sketches as a pitch to have them featured in a column. Obviously there was no response to these unsolicited requests.
