    Following are character tags added to Doonesbury strips from the beginning to

    1 / 22 / 72

    and 7 / 1 / 07 - 8 / 3 / 08

    and 9 / 21 / 08

    and 9 / 28 / 08

    and 11 / 16 / 08

    and 11 / 24 / 08 - 11 / 30 /08

    and 1 / 19 / 09 – 1 / 24 / 09

    and 9 / 28 / 09 - 4 / 1 / 11

    excluding unposted / nonexistent Sunday strips ( Sundays before 3/21/71 and 4/18-6/6/71). I usually put character and other tags with the subject’s first appearance in a story or “theme week” ; for other related strips check the strips preceding and following the tagged ones.

    I had forgotten how crudely drawn the early years were. Yet they were some of his best work. Liberal yet still funny. Last 10 years it’s been liberal but NOT funny.

    WOW, amazing to see how the strip began… so crude the drawings, so farce the humor. Amazing how it all begins liberal, stays liberal, but gets less funny but more artistic.

    The strip that started in all in October 1970, then rerun in March 2014 when classic daily strip rerun mode started mixed in with first run Sunday Doonesbury strips.
