Created by Cuban refugee and political cartoonist Antonio Prohias, at the height of the Cold War. His cartoon of 2 dueling crows, Spy vs.Spy, make light of the absurd antics and policies from both sides of the conflict, such as MAD – Mutually Assured Destruction, or NUTS – Nuclear Utilization Target Selection. Since then, the cartoon has won a place in the American culture.
