Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – December 26, 2020

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (December 19th through December 26th 2020). Come! Look!

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (December 19th through December 26th 2020).

There were no big, dominating hit cartoons this week, with all of the Top Ten cartoons performing moderately well and tightly bunched. We saw a transition from Christmas themed cartoons to New Years cartoons.  Seven of the ten cartoons allude to the pandemic and stay-at-home orders.

The Top Ten cartoons are what most readers see since only 20% of the cartoons get 80% of the reprints.

John Cole won the week with a snowy/COVID/remote-learning cartoon. Rick McKee and Jeff Koterba are impressive with two cartoons each on the Top Ten list.

Congratulations to the other cartoonists with the most reprinted cartoons of the week: Bill Day, Dave Whamond, Dave Granlund,  John Darkow, and Dave Fitzsimmons.

Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 62 cartoonists in our syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to

Our reader supported site,, still needs you!  Journalism is threatened with the pandemic that has shuttered newspaper advertisers. Some pundits predict that a large percentage of newspapers won’t survive the pandemic economic slump, and as newspapers sink, editorial cartoonists who depend on newspapers sink too, and along with them, our site.

The world needs political cartoonists more now than ever. Please consider supporting and visit
