    Zonker does these things out of love.

    Oh, God, and I thought these were SO funny back in the day.

    You have to remember there was nothing else like Doonesbury back in the day

    Part of the appeal for me as a young boy was that this strip had to be printed on the Editorial page, because it wasn’t appropriate next to all the kiddie strips on the comics page

    Zonker, the heart and soul of early Doonesbury!

    Trudeau should have nixed Zonker after the first week. What an airhead. No wonder our local paper kept him on the editorial page. Nobody wanted their kids reading this junk on the Comics page. .

    I can’t understand the complaints. I have not seen these strips before, but they are far more entertaining and funnier than his more recent strips.

    @Doctor Toon

    Way back in the day, Doonesbury was the only reason I read the editorial page.
    I was pretty young then.

    These are a LOT funnier than watching him try not to anger today’s White House too much.

    Then why are you here? Remove Doonesbury from your comics list, it’s easy and you won’t have to put up with it anymore. :)

    I remember wondering why their helmets had no face guards. Could Walden only afford leftovers from the ’40’s?

    Very very few of us here at Doonesbury comments cares in any way you think or say. Why don’t go to Mallard Fillmore and babble about how
    meaningful and true it is!?

    Go Zonker! Keep up the good work!
