Charles Addams for Avis

Forty years ago, car rental company Avis chose Charles Addams to illustrate an ad in the New Yorker. There is a long tradition of the magazine's cartoonists being hired by the magazine's advertisers. Here Avis faces one of its biggest customers.

Charles Addams, "You tell him we only have a sub-compact left."
