This little guy is a cartoon depiction of Thomas Anthony DeSimone (May 24, 1950 – disappeared January 14, 1979), also known as Tommy D, a Sicilian-American gangster and associate of the Lucchese crime family in New York City. DeSimone was a grandson and nephew of Los Angeles mob bosses, Rosario DeSimone and Frank DeSimone, respectively. He was married to Angelica “Cookie” Spione, but had many mistresses, including Theresa Ferrara. In Martin Scorsese’s film Goodfellas, the character Tommy DeVito (portrayed by Joe Pesci) is based on DeSimone. More to come in this series.
