Vic and Nat'ly Broussard, the cartoon creations of artist Bunny Matthews, are the proprietors of a New Orleans po-boy shop located deep in "Da Nint' Ward." In their official capacity as arbiters of fine taste, Vic and Nat'ly appear-much larger than life-on the sides of all Leidenheimer Baking Co. delivery trucks, urging passersby to "Sink ya teeth into a piece of New Orleans cultcha-a Leidenheimer po-boy!!"
