On closer inspection I’ve just noticed that one of the characters looks a bit like Mickey, the star of the Sendak book. It’s a little difficult to tell, as Mickey spends most of the book stark naked, rather than covered in a large over coat like the one he wears in this adventure. It’s surely some sort of parody though.
