Ben didn’t create uncharacteristic portrayals of of his cartoons on drugs. In fact, it would appear that he was inspired by actual drawings. This is what makes the series clever as he uses common reactions from these characters and appropriately fits them in with each drug package.
It is of curiosity how Ben managed to get the boxes for all of these prescription drugs.
