Let "The Adventure Begin!"
50,000 Cartoon Faces On 5.7 Miles Of Paper That Could Stretch From The Stratosphere Hotel All The Way Down Las Vegas Boulevard South To The World Famous Las Vegas Welcome Sign! NOW THAT'S A CARTOON!!!

MAY 27, 2007
THE BEGINNING OF THE COMPLETION OF
THE WORLD'S LONGEST CARTOON

< br>

These First Two Photos Are The Documented Snapshots Of The Very First Cartoon To Appear On The Extended Roll Of Paper On The Road To Completing THE WORLD'S LONGEST CARTOON. The Pictures Below Were Taken May 27, 2007, As Wild Bill Approaches The Site Where The Cartoon Will Begin...St. Louis Avenue and Las Vegas Blvd. South...Directly In Front Of The Stratosphere Hotel. Then Follow The Journey From St. Louis Avenue Down To The Sahara Hotel At Las Vegas Blvd. South In The Pictures. Check Out All The Pics Of The Different Businesses Between The Stratosphere Hotel And The Sahara Hotel. In That Short One Half Mile Wild Bill Will Be Drawing Over 5,000 Cartoon Faces To Begin The Quest! STAY TUNED FOR MORE PICS AS THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES THROUGH LABOR DAY!
Here Is The Very First Picture Taken Within One Minute Of The First Cartoon Drawn On The Beginning Of The Completion Of THE WORLD'S LONGEST CARTOON Right At The Corner Of St. Louis Avenue And Las Vegas Blvd. South In Front Of The Stratosphere Hotel.

Wild Bill Approaches The Stratosphere On His Way To Begin The Cartoon. The White Cross Drug Store In This Picture Has Been In That Same Location Since Before Wild Bill Ever Arrived In Vegas In 1968! Talk About A Landmark!!!

< br> **FOOTNOTE** This Carl's Jr. At The Corner Of St. Louis Avenue And Las Vegas Blvd. South On The Strip Currently Is Right Across The Street From The Stratosphere Hotel. The Stratosphere In The Eighties Was Called "VEGAS WORLD" Hotel and Casino. Wild Bill And Janae Were Allowed To Come And Go 24/7As They Wished To Present Hotel And Casino Guests With The Opportunity To Receive Personalized Caricatures. In Between The Times They Were Not Drawing, Wild Bill And Janae Would Escape Over To This Carl's Jr. And Plan Their Daily Strategies. It Was In This Carl's Jr. That That Wild Bill And Janae Dreamed Up Their Famous Pigeon Painting Routine Which They Performed At Ballys Hotel For The David Letterman Show Which Was Broadcasting His NBC Nightly Program Live. The Staff Was So Impressed With Wild Bill And Janae's Three Pigeons Who Creatively Painted Beautiful Artwork On Real Canvas That Wild Bill And Janae Were Invited To Come To New York To Have The Birds Perform On The Show. Meanwhile, The Three Talented Birds Painted A Limited Number Of Special Pieces Of Art Especially For Vegas VIPs. Some Of Those Who Became Proud Owners Of Original Pigeon Paintings Included Frank Sinatra, Red Skelton And Lou Rawls. Because Of This Carl's Jr. Being Such An Important Landmark In The Art Careers Of Wild Bill And Janae, It Was No Coincidence Wild Bill Choose This Hotel Directly Across From The Carl's Jr. To Begin The Completion Of THE WORLD'S LONGEST CARTOON.
Along With The White Cross Store Landmark, Also Pictured Is One Of The Recently Added Double Decker "DEUCE" Busses That Transport Visitors Up And Down The Strip All Day And All Night. Of Course, You Can See The Stratosphere In The Background Also As Wild Bill Is Making His Way To His Destiny With History!

< br> Voila!!! Finally, I Arrived At The Front Door To The Stratosphere! Let The Fun Begin!

Oh, My Goodness! Look Who's Appearing In The Main Showroom At The Stratosphere!!! I Wanted To Put Her Face In The Cartoon, But She Never Came Downstairs To Pose For Me To Draw Her Picture! Maybe, Next Time, Christina!
< br> Wild Bill Holds Up The First Cartoon Facing St. Louis Avenue!
< br> Wild Bill Holds Up The First Cartoon Facing Downtown Las Vegas And DENNYS? Well...Cartoonists Have To Eat Too!

Now Wild Bill Begins His Journey South Off The Stratosphere Property. LOOK ! It's Everyone's Favorite Casino....THE AZTEC INN ! Trust Me, There Are Some Very Interesting Sites Between The Stratosphere And The Sahara!

Wild Bill Wanted You To Have Another Look At The Beautiful, Exotic AZTEC INN Before We Move On Down The Strip.

And What Would An Adventure Be Without A CIRCLE K Selling Gas For Over Three Bucks A Gallon? Yes, It Is Indeed May Of 2007!

Speaking Of ArtWork? If Wild Bill Were Not In Such A Hurry, Then He Might Have Stopped In To Get A Couple Of Cartoon Tatoos. Which Tatoo Shop Would You Choose?

Bingo! Ladies And Germs, Wild Bill Has Arrived At The Last Business Before Reaching The Corner Of Sahara And Las Vegas Blvd.! It's The World's Largest Gift Show? You Think? Well, It Is A Pretty Large Place And They Have Terrific Souvenirs! In Fact, This Establishment Is Where Wild Bill Purchased The Elvis Wig He Wore In 2000 When The VH1-Television Network Crew Came From New York To Film Wild Bill And Janae As The VH1 Tour Guides Up And Down The Strip. This Gift Shop Building That Takes Up An Entire City Block Was Once A Very Popular Casino Called THE JOLLY TROLLY. Wild Bill's Name Was Up On The Marquee Instead Of "World's Largest Gift Shop". Wild Bill Performed Nightly To Fantastic Crowds On A Giant Stage Doing His Music And Comedy Act After Breaking The Guinness Book World Record Further Down The Strip At The Silver City Casino.

Finally, Wild Bill Will Have Reached The Corner Facing The Legendary Sahara Hotel Where Some Of The Biggest Stars Of All Times Appeared In The Congo Room. The Beatles Even Stayed At The Sahara On Their First Tour When They Played At The Vegas Convention Center.


JUST THINK!
Once Wild Bill Reaches This Point At The Corner Of Sahara Avenue And Las Vegas Blvd., He Only Has 45,000 Cartoon Faces Left To Draw To Finish THE WORLD'S LONGEST CARTOON!

Hey....That Sign Isn't That Far, Is It? Labor Day...Here I Come!!!
