His most-known series, Honobono Kun, ran from 1956 till 2007 and was serialised in the Tokyo Shinbun.

The second longest-running newspaper comic is the late Yoshiro Kato's "Mappira-kun," which ended on its 13,615th strip in 2001. At the time, Tsukuda-san could no longer continue the series due to ailing health.
