The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene's AIDS Administration utilized the popular cartoon format by creating King Condom in 1988.

The images of contraceptive lubricant and packaged condoms, along with the dialogue of King Condom, promote safe sex practices and offer condom education information available in state-run health clinics.
