Vip — Virgil Partch

In the Islands called Pribilof
Where fur seals do bark,
Was born Virgil Partch,
Who as Vip made his mark.

He worked for Walt Disney,
Made Mickey Mouse walk,
Pulled Pinocchio’s strings,
Made Donald Duck squawk.

For cartoons unique,
He won further fame.
Vip was the tops
In the comic art game.

He dwelled in a cliff house
On the Ocean Pacific,
Drawing pictures inspired
By his genius prolific.

His wife he had one,
His children three.
His cats numbered nine—
Six Siamee.

And now for every girl and boy,
Vip’s first children’s book
Is back to enjoy!
