Harry Potter Cartoons

We decided to go back through our archives and post the best cartoons about Harry Potter and his band of magical troublemakers from Hogwarts.

As anticipation builds for these weekend’s premiere of Harry Potters and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2, I thought I’d go back into our archives and post some the best cartoons about those little magical troublemakers at Hogwarts.

I just read a column today at Poynter about how after 13 years of Harry Potter movies, reporters are all out of angles to cover. I find it funny that cartoonists don’t seem to have the same problem.

Here’s the cartoon I drew back in 2001 when the first Harry Potter movie was released. Not much has changed, other than Potter’s age and maybe a larger dollar sign…

David Fitzsimmons of the Arizona Daily Star suggests a whole new line of Harry Potter movies as star Daniel Radcliff gets older and older…

Randy Bish of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review comments on all the crybabies that will miss Harry Potter…

Joe Heller of the Green Bay Post-Gazette addresses the aging of the Harry Potter franchise from a different perspective…

Heller also re-imagines Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, changing the main character and replacing Lord Voldemort with a different type of evil…

Replace “Mideast Summit” with “Budget Negotiations” and this cartoon by Bob Englehart of the Hartford Courant still works…

Australian cartoonist Peter Lewis paints a nice picture of Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling as she nears the end of her movie franchise…

Canadian Cartoonist Thomas Boldt (knows to most people as Tab) addresses Harry Potter’s hype and consumerism with these two funny cartoons…

Austrian cartoonist Petar Pismestrovic sees Harry Potter as a welcome diversion from everything going on in the world…

Patrick Corrigan of the Toronto Sun suggests a new title for Harry’s ongoing pursuits…
