Anyone want to post their own favorite cartoon? It would make a fun thread.

They are all good and I am finding it difficult to chose one. It has taken me some time to get some of them as they are quite subtle and small details are hard for me to see these days. .

Does it have to be a New Yorker cartoon?
Message: Posted by: landmark (Jan 19, 2013 08:39PM)
No, just your favorite from anywhere.

Good one! There are so many Gary Larsen cartoons I love.
Here's another by Sam Gross from National Lampoon in the 70s:

Well, if we're going there, pretty much anything by either Charles Addams or Gahan Wilson.
Message: Posted by: landmark (Jan 20, 2013 08:29AM)
Maybe you could post them, Ed, for others to enjoy.

Download favorite pic to your computer desktop.
Then go to imgur.com and upload the pic. Then you will see a menu of urls. Pick the one that says "For message boards," and then copy and paste that url into your Café post.

Just about any of the ones Charles Addams did. This one is touching:

Legend has it that Mr. Addams would periodically show a particular cartoon to his editor, and every time he did, he would be hospitalized. Don't know if that's true, but it would be interesting to see it. I loved the Addams cartoons as a child, and would take his books home from the library. My father, may he rest in peace, quite sensibly thought that the book Mr. Addams published of materials that inspired him was not suitable for a young, impressionable mind. Probably wouldn't seem that bad to folks today, but I haven't seen it in years, and Mr. Addams certainly had an unusual mind.

For me, in terms of hitting percentage, I don't think any cartoonist surpasses Larsen.. It's the rare one that doesn't make me laugh.

Are you familiar with Unger's work (Herman)?

Since this thread went from New Yorker covers to Gary Larson, I'm surprised no one posted this cartoon. I think it is Gary Larson's last cartoon.

I thought I posted a couple of Gahan Wilson's but I can't find them now. Oh well.
Message: Posted by: Bob1Dog (Mar 23, 2014 04:16PM)
@Ed: I wrote to Gahahn Wilson about twenty-five years ago and he kindly returned a nice note with a drawing of a bat. I collect autographs and that is one of my more cooler ones.

@landmark: While I'm not a reader of The New Yorker or familiar with the cartoons, you might be interested in knowing, if you don't already, that two New Yorker cartoonists are being profiled tonite on CBS Sixty Minutes; "Bob Mankoff, David Remnick and cartoonists of The New Yorker." as listed. Hope you read this in time to catch it. :-)
Message: Posted by: landmark (Mar 23, 2014 04:32PM)
Thanks for the heads up! Mankoff is great--I know Remnick as a non-fiction writer, I didn't know he was also a cartoonist.
