Peter is not only a bad actor, he is also not very good at improv...

In the last panel, we can see a marionette puppet of Kitty from the Erwin the Quantum Cat show, as played there by non other than Stilldown's Ariane Eldar.
And behind her is some old advertising for said marionettes, which you can see in its full glory here.

The old "Dollar sign (or Euro sign in this case) as pupils" trick!
And as far as I know, the "ka-ching" is the sound that ye olde style cash registers made - that's how old this trope is!

This? This was the plan? Oh my...

Then again, given the absolute greed of this guy, it seems to be working.

And yes, Kanny should do the talking, Peter.

Sure, it's not the most... polished plan, but it's the results that matter! ;-)

(Though Peter almost botched it...)

Poor Kitty. She looks so cute and still no one has bought her yet.

Perhaps that's just because that greedy salesman has put the price for her way too high...

Maybe little Cleo will like her.

She did clearly state to be a fan of the show after all!

"Peter is not only a bad actor, he is also not very good at improv..."

Or picking costumes it seems!

He apparently confused "inconspicuous" with "extravagant"... :-D

I wonder who's more difficult to openly disguise--a man or a woman? I'd guess a woman, since men have a variety of ah prosthetics (i.e. beards, mustaches) that are easily applied.

May well be. Though on the other hand, women may find a larger selection of wigs that look inconspicuous enough to not draw all too much counterproductive attention.

A time-tested cartoon trope, but with country-appropriate currency! :-D
