East German comic readers had the Digedags, which were created in the 1950s as a socialist response to Mickey Mouse. With the Digedags, cartoonist Hannes Hegen had managed to create a real "people's" comic, which was nevertheless free of political doctrine and propaganda. Even today, the characters are well known across former East Germany.
