Multiple Years / Dondi - Comic Strip 1955-1986
Dondi was a daily comic strip that ran for more than 30 years. It was about a large-eyed war orphan. Created by Gus Edson and Irwin Hasen, at its peak of popularity it ran in more than 100 newspapers. The first installment ran on September 25, 1955. The final Dondi comic strip appeared on June 8, 1986. Dondi's original backstory describes him as a five-year-old World War II orphan of Italian descent. The boy had no memory of his parents or his name, so when a pretty Red Cross worker said he was "a dandy boy," he thought she was naming him Dondi. Two American soldiers who spoke no Italian, Ted Wills and Whitey McGowan, found the child wandering through a war-torn village. The soldiers brought the child back to the United States and Ted eventually became his adoptive father.
