    Spike can be a queen bee because queens can sting multiple times...they don’t usually make the honey but at least it can be a honey bee.

    "Probably most memorably, starting in 1942, in addition to his other responsibilities, Porter supervised the World War II insignia unit (which included artists Roy Williams, Bill Justice, Van Kaufman, Ed Parks and George Goepper) in creating more than 1,200 designs during World War II for both American and Allied military units. Designs were also created for other organizations such as civil defense and war industries."

    Jim are there any books or listing of these insignia designs?

    "Although we think it's DOPEY that Pluto has been downgraded to a dwarf planet, which has made some people GRUMPY and others just SLEEPY, we are not BASHFUL in saying we would be HAPPY if Disney's Pluto would join us as an 8th dwarf. We think this is just what the DOC ordered and is nothing to SNEEZE at."

    You should probably look for DISNEY DONS DOGTAGS: The Best Disney Military Insignia From World War II (Abbeville Publishing 1992) by Walton Rawls a hardcover book of 96 pages but multiple pictures in full color on every page and a foreword by Dave Smith. I really liked the text as well which was informative and accurate. Pages 64-66 have several examples of the bees who look a lot like Scoopy. There are other books.

    There is a GREAT Japanese book published in 2015 entitled Characters of Military that is 270 pages long all in color but the text is completely in Japanese but every page has multiple pictures of Disney insignias.
