Daily Dees (George Butterworth 1905 - 1988)

The Daily Dees was a cartoon strip featuring the cartoonist’s family which made its first appearance in the Daily Dispatch on 23 March 1953. Interviewed in 1958, George Butterworth stated: “The family’s adventures might happen to you and inspiration comes from chance remarks of domestic situations in which naturally enough Mrs Dee usually has the last word. My greatest fans are the ladies  and most married men recognise the inevitable feminine ascending in the domestic sphere which compares with their own experiences.” In 1960, the strip became a regular feature in the Daily Mail.
