Unlikely reference

I remembered them from when I was younger: extremely minimalist drawings with surprisingly complicated explanations. But what were they, as a group, called? I didn’t find out until I actually looked at one of them:

Ship arriving too late to save a drowning witch

Frank Zappa’s 1982 album Ship arriving too late to save a drowning witch, also the title of this original Droodle by Roger Price, dating to 1953. (Price went on to collaborate with Leonard Stern on a little something called Mad Libs, which even today, some 60 years after their creation, continue to __________.)

    I’d forgotten about those, and now I miss them.
