He received the National Cartoonists Society Gag Cartoon Award for 1958, 1961, 1964 and 1988 for his work. Mr. Dedini did around 1,200 cartoons for Playboy and 630 for The New Yorker in a career that also included Disney cartoons, ads for broccoli and thirteen posters for the annual Pebble Beach Concours d' Elegance.
