Maine State Library
Early illustration used for the mascot launch.
"This little character is Tidy Coon, who symbolizes cleanliness and neatness throughout Maine in the anti-litter effort of the Governor's Committee to Keep Maine Scenic. The caricature of Tidy was created by Sid Maxell of Portland, a member of the National Cartoonists Society. It will be made available to communities, organizations, and industries throughout Maine, for use on litter bags and barrels, signs, posters, and other materials carrying litter prevention messages."
