Poster has a black background with white text and iamge. On the left is an image of a baby's body with large boxing gloves on. Where the baby's head is a man's head. Poster reads, "La Gran Aventura de Pee Wee/ Dijo que se las veria con Abu Nidal hombre a hombre/ No cometas el crimen si no puedes cumplir la condena." The bottom area has three quotes in Spanish.This lampoons Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North, who was caught diverting proceeds from illegal arms sales to Iran to support the Contra rebel groups in Nicaragua.
