A billion Soviet Shmeckles/an improbable reference

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 22, 2017, 10:21 AM
People sometimes ask if my art was inspired by __________ , but often the answer is that it wasn't, because I've never seen/read ________ (due to me being far more immersed in Soviet novels than American pop culture).

Today I came across yet another fantastic improbability, an obscure/extremely rare Soviet Poster that seems to be exactly like the character "Stealy" out of Rick and Morty.
He's even called "Hapuga", which translates to "Stealy".

Evaluate it for yourself and see how many similarities you can find:



This is a perfect example of people having similar ideas spanning across completely different cultures/time.

That's hilarious! XD The guy has hands for feet wth XD

Maybe Rick and Morty Stealy was inspired by the other, or it's just a reference to the other?

PROBABLY NOT, CONSIDERING HOW RARE THAT POSTER IS! IS RAREST OF HAPUGAS

Well, one of the big memes in the Rick and Morty fandom is "To fully appreciate the jokes in the show, you have to be of a certain superior I.Q."
This is probably a better example of that. A writer probably saw the poster, liked the idea, and ran with it.
