"Hey buddy, can you buy a six-pack for me?"

Weatherbird

Actually, the Weatherbird was a Post-Dispatch original. Here's a quote from the 100th anniversary tribute book:

On February 11, 1901, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch unveiled the Weatherbird ... Without interruption for the past 100 years, the now-famous Weatherbird has graced the cover of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, earning its place in history as the longest continually running daily cartoon in American journalism.

Globe Democrat Weather Bird

I think the Weather Bird was originally something that was done the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. As I recall the Post-Dispatch adopted it when the Globe folded.

St. Louis icon

That's the Post-Dispatch Weatherbird...he's been the paper's mascot for over 100 years ... even has a blog.

Those hanging signs, painted signs, the character on the wall. I'm in Heaven.
