    Received the National Cartoonists Society’s Milton Caniff Lifetime Achievement Award (2004)
    He said, ‘I saw myself as a failure as a boy.’
    His cartoons were so wordy, often half a panel would be taken up by dialogue.
    He said he began writing children’s books after he had a falling out with an author whose book he was going to illustrate and ‘I got so mad, I said, ‘Okay, fuck you, I'll write my own children's book, and it will be better than yours.’’
    He has won a Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning (1986), two Obies for his plays (1967,1970) and an Oscar for animated short film (1961).
    Gary Trudeau said, ‘No other cartoon in strip format was dealing on a regular basis with themes as adult as sex, politics, psychiatry.’
    When the White House asked for a copy of one of his cartoons of LBJ, he replied, ‘All he has to do is get out of Vietnam and he can have my entire library.’
