Salvador Pruneda's first cartoons were published in El Jacobino in 1907. In 1921 El Heraldo de Mexico asked him to come up with an idea for a daily strip. 'Don Catarino' was the hilarious result. The strip ran for many years in El Heraldo, El Democrata and El Nacional. Salvador Pruneda was the recipient of numerous awards for his cartooning work and for his civic and professional contributions.
