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.)

96. Original Cartoons

One more (until we find another one) all cartoon magazine. The has the telling title of Original Cartoons. It was another Joe Simon product published bi-monthly by Hampshire Distributors, Ltd. The cover promises "OVER 150 NEW CARTOONS! JOKES! PARTY TALES!" in 70 pages. Don had five cartoons in Volume 1 Number 6, November 1969. One was this four-panel gag which makes us wonder if the younger generation knows what a hankie is and how girls used them to "drop a hint." Wonder if the guy in the cartoon even noticed the girl -- or did he just really need to blow his nose?
