Help me find 1980s-era political image?

I vaguely remember an editorial cartoon or maybe a Doonesbury Sunday strip or maybe even a political ad that used a childlike crayon drawing of a missile hitting a magical bubble-like shield to illustrate the ridiculousness of Ronald Reagan's dream of the "Star Wars" Strategic Defense Initiative. It might have been a short animated film. But I cannot find this 1980s-era image online; can you?

Best answer: What a wonderful coincidence - exactly 25 years ago today (and the next day). Both strips lampooned the "Peace Shield" ad.

Best answer: Oddly, it was published precisely 25 years ago today.
