This is the original drawing for the Gordo Sunday strip for April 3, 1960. Arriola used an unusual 9 panels for this strip and "signed" it "Mynamis Muhd" in the first panel. It is signed by the artist in the 8th panel. It features Gordo and his nephew Pepito. Arriola usually signed with a word-play that related to the story in the strip, in this case "My Name is Mud."
