His name should be Lee O'Liar! Every story has him telling tall tales of his past to some neighbor kid. This semi-regular character from funny animal comic book Frisky Fables
comics pops up in sister Star Publications comic book Mighty Bear
#14 (March 1954) in the story "'The Faucet-Drip' Concerto."
When asked to fix a leaky faucet, O'Lion instead explains how he went to Paris and learned musical composition from Abie Fransouis. Struck by writer's block, he used the beat of a dripping faucet to compose his Faucet-Drip Concerto, and took it to Dough, Lah, Tee, and Soul Publishers.
