This picture with the giant jumping frog has a history: years after the picture was created, Fritz turned it into a poster that the Zurich Green Party was allowed to use as an election poster in the 1980s. The cheerful and optimistic spirit radiated by the green protagonist in the picture also won over the electorate: the Greens, who were still new at the time, were able to win 5 seats in parliament with this poster at their first attempt.
