Don has sold a LOT of cartoons in his career. Each numbered cartoon or illustration on the left side of this Blog is from a DIFFERENT magazine, newspaper, etc. Let's see if we can find out the total number of publications (places) where Don's work has appeared . . . . . (An unnumbered posting is a duplicate publication.)

18. Saturday Evening Post

There is no relationship between how many cartoons Don sold to any publication and the order in which they appear in this Blog. The order is strictly random.
Saturday Evening Post was not only the first major consumer magazine to buy a cartoon from Don, but also one of his best markets. This one could be considered dated as door-to-door salesmen are all but extinct (replaced by telemarketers?). At least we now have Caller ID and Do Not Call lists. No one thought of creating a "do not knock" list in 1964 when this cartoon was published.
The aqua blue edge indicates that this cartoon was printed on a full page of approximately six cartoons called "Post Scripts." The color of the decorative border varied from issue to issue. Cartoons also were printed throughout this weekly magazine, which came out every Saturday.
