Political Cartoonists Examine Castro, His Policies and Influence

After Castro and his forces decimated the CIA-sponsored invasion of Cuba in 1961, the cigar-smoking Communist president of Cuba was the subject of many a political cartoon, and Doug's single-panel Doug Sneyd, starting in the mid-1960s, and SCOOPS, in the late-1970s, was no exception.

SCOOPS was not tied to a central character, story line or location so Doug could cast his satirist's eye wherever he chose - Castro was obviously a popular figure ripe for scrutiny.
