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.)

National Enquirer: 2 panel

Cartoons can be many things, though they should always be funny. They also can be ironic, elucidating, politically controversial, or socially relevent, but some are just plain silly. Silly gags give you the giggles, and this may be what cartooning is all about. The gag shown here, and bought by National Enquirer in September 1969, is one of Don's "silly gags". The situation depicted is impossible and has no deeper meaning than just fun. We laugh every time we see it, and are glad the editor recognized its inane merit!
Another "silly gag" printed by National Enquirer is in post #7.
