Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – February 13, 2021

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of the week ending February 13th.

Jeff Koterba kicked butt this week winning both the #1 and #2 cartoons!  John Darkow also had a great week with the cartoons on the Top Ten. Kudos to the other cartoonists with the most reprinted cartoons this week: Kevin Siers, Rick McKee, Dave Granlund, Dave Whamond, Randy Enos, and Dick Wright.

The Top Ten cartoons are what most readers see since only 20% of the cartoons get 80% of the reprints. Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 62 cartoonists in our CagleCartoons.com syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com


Our reader supported site, Cagle.com, 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 Cagle.com site.

Support for our French Museum Friends

Our friends at the charming, editorial cartoon museum in St Just le Martel, Franceare in the last push of a national competition to host a new, national “House” of Editorial Cartoons – something that doesn’t exist anywhere in the world. They have asked their cartoonist friends to submit cartoons in support of their bid. Here’s mine.
To explain my cartoon, the story goes that God told little St Just to throw his hammer, which landed in a spot that turned into a spring, where water squirted up, and God instructed St Just to build a church for him on that spot, which became the little town of St Just le Martel (St Just the hammer). I know, its complex, but our French friends will get it.
 

The competition is tough, two spots in Paris, one in Strasbourg and the French National Library also submitted bids – still, St Just should win and I wish them all the luck. Any other cartoonist friends of St Just are encouraged to pitch in with cartoons now (contact the museum). A decision is expected soon.

Here’s a cartoon supporting St Just’s bid from my French cartoonist pal, Pierre Ballouhey – this one needs explaining too. St Just is in cow country, and they use brown cows as their mascot. That’s Pierre getting kissed by the top cow, and that’s the museum at the bottom.

Movies and Chicken Gutz

It has been a long time since we had a post from our legendary CagleCartoonist, Randy Enos. We have a new one today!

INSIDE OUTSIDE PROVIDENCE, by Randy Enos

On a movie camera crew there is a cameraman, 1st assistant cameraman and a 2nd assistant cameraman. The 1st asst. (known in England as a focus puller) sits beside the main cameraman and controls the focusing knob on the side of the camera, adjusting it for the zoom in, zoom out and follow focus as the actors, vehicles etc. run around in front of the camera. The 2nd asst. (known in England as the clapper/loader) is the guy or girl who claps those sticks together and says “Take one”. He or she also loads the film on small crews or is the boss over a “loader” on the larger crews.

The second asst. camera or “2nd A.C.” is also in charge of the camera when it is not being operated and has to have the proper lenses ready and loaded onto the camera for every new shot. He or she is also in charge of keeping the time charts and everyone abreast of the shooting times from day to day. That’s what my eldest son, Kris does, he’s a “2nd A.C.”. Sometimes he works as a 1st and lately, sometimes, as a camera drone operator.

Back in 1999, he worked on the movie “Inside Providence”. He had to travel from New York City up to Providence, Rhode Island for a few weeks to shoot it. They put him up in a nice little apartment with a few bedrooms, kitchen, etc. so it was convenient for my wife and I and his wife and my two grandkids to go up there for a couple of days. I got to see what it’s like on a movie set.

While we were there, they were shooting on several set-ups inside a huge armory. They had built the interior of the hero’s house, a replica of the top of a Providence water tower (where the boys in the movie would get together to smoke dope) and several fake trees which were on wheels so they could be moved around.

We were able to mingle freely with the actors and crew and actually stand next to the camera during the shooting even inside the crowded house interior. They had already shot most of the exterior Providence street and water tower shots before we had arrived there.

After a while, it became apparent to me that the real star of this show was the “craft table”! It was a large table smack dab in the middle of everything fairly dripping with the most toothsome array of sinful delicacies and succulence one could ever imagine. It became apparent that the general corpulent girth exhibited by the majority of the crew was due in “large” to the tasty delectables before me. Arranged around a big pot of apples there sat dishes of fig newtons, jelly beans, candy bars, tootsie rolls, bananas, peanuts, cashews, doughnuts, potato chips, cheese, cookies, pies, brownies etc. and etc.. All this was nibbled on by all members of the crew whenever one of them came within grazing distance of the larder … in other words, all day, all the time. It was unavoidable and, unfortunately irresistible.
At lunch and dinner time we supped on another vast array of selections including chicken, beef, pork, fish and every kind of vegetable … all cooked in the back kitchen of the armory.

The biggest in expectation was the morning food truck parked just outside the armory door which offered every single breakfast choice known to Western Man from porridge to bagel, Wheaties to English muffin, pancakes and waffles to all manner of eggs with, of course bangers or crispy bacon.

I had always wondered about the film credit, “stand-by painter”. Well … there she was standing by and painting last minute emergency paint touch-ups.

Arranged around the perimeter of the sets were all the work stations, wardrobe, make-up, carpentry and so forth. I asked one fellow, who was standing next to racks of clothing, exactly what his title was. He said “clothes wrangler.” And on a movie set, the electricians are called “electrics” (I always liked that one).
My, now 30 yr. old grandson, Klay, who was only 9 at the time, went right over to the director, Michael, at one point to call attention to the fact that the shot they were about to make was problematic. They were shooting up at the actors assembled around the platform of the water tower model. Klay pointed out that some paraphernalia on the armory balcony behind would, most likely, be in the shot. The director said, “Y’know, nobody else on the crew noticed that!”

Klay is now a painter living in the Bronx and is an amazing film connoisseur.

All in all, it was an amazing experience being on a movie set. While it was full of surprises, the most unexpected moment came right at the beginning on the first day. When we first walked in, my son dragged me over to meet the director. As I nervously stood there, Kris said, ” This is my father Randall Enos.”

“RANDALL ENOS? You’re the guy that draws Chicken Gutz in the Lampoon … hey, guys, come over here … this is the cartoonist that draws Chicken Gutz!”

Top Ten Cartoons of January, 2021

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last month, January, 2021.  We usually do the Top Ten of the Week, but this week our stats were down for a couple of days as were were working on new programming. The weekly Top Ten will be back next Saturday.

January was a wild month with the pandemic, the presidential inauguration and the Capitol insurrection. New Years, Martin Luther King and GameStop also made the list.

This was an impressive month for Steve Sack, who had a strong #1 and and also scored in 6th place.  Dave Granlund also kicked cartoon butt with three cartoons on the list (#2, #5 and #9). Dave Whamond (#7 and #10) and Jeff Koterba (#3 and #4) each had two cartoons on the list. Kudos to Dave Fitzsimmons who had the #8 cartoon.

The Top Ten cartoons are what most readers see since only 20% of the cartoons get 80% of the reprints. Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 62 cartoonists in our CagleCartoons.com syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com

ANTIFA

When I finished this ANTIFA cartoon yesterday I showed it to my wife who said the gag was a meme and she had seen it a dozen times on social media.  ANTIFA bastards!

ANTIFA (Anti-Facists) are inconsequential but are a nonsense boogeyman for the right and they take up a lot of time on Fox News.  Here are a couple of cartoons poking the demon ANTIFA from conservative cartoonist, Gary McCoy.

 

Nate Beeler doesn’t like Trump, and doesn’t like ANTIFA either.

 

Here are three ANTIFA cartoons from some level-headed cartoonists.

New CagleCartoonist: Dick Wright

I’m pleased to announce that we have added conservative cartoonist, Dick Wright to our CagleCartoons.com newspaper syndication package! Dick has been one of America’s top editorial cartoonists for over 32 years, but he retired from cartooning in 2005 to devote his time to being a pastor of a church he founded in Warrenton, Virginia – now he’s inspired to come back to syndication with us. Conservative cartoonists are rare, and great conservative cartoonists are extremely rare; we’re delighted to have Dick join our cartoonists and we look forward to seeing him give more weight to the right side of our left leaning group.

Dick is new to us, but he has been around for a long time.  Dick retired from United Features Syndicate in 2005 with a personal list of 420 subscribing newspapers; he has also been syndicated by the McNaught Syndicate, Copley News Service, the Los Angeles Times Syndicate and Tribune Media Services (now called “Tribune Content Agency,” which is the only syndicate on the list that is still in business). Dick has worked as a staff cartoonist for The Columbus Dispatch (OH), The Nashville Banner (TN), The Gwinnett Post (GA), The San Diego Union (CA), The Providence Journal-Bulletin (RI) and Scripps-Howard Newspapers (for a chain of 16 of their papers). Dick really gets around and he has won scores of awards in his long, impressive career.

Dick is starting up again with black and white cartoons but he will be adding color soon. See his archive here and some of his recent favorites below. Welcome aboard, Dick!

Guantanamo Vaccine and Invitation

I flip back and forth between news channels and I saw the news about the Guantanamo prisoners get COVID-19 vaccine before almost everyone else can get it. And I noticed that this story didn’t seem to exist on the mainstream news channels, and I though the old lady saying “Death to America” was kind of funny.  Imagine my disappointment this morning when the cartoon was almost finished and I hear the news that the military was putting the Guantanamo prisoner vaccinations “on hold” while they reconsider it.

SO, I made a last minute change to the wording.

… and the cartoon isn’t as good.

But what the heck.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – January 30, 2021

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (January 23rd through January 30th 2021).

This was an impressive week for Steve Sack, who outpaced the pack and dominated the week with the #1, #2 and #7 most reprinted cartoons of the week. Congratulations to Dave Whamond and Dave Granlund who each have two cartoons in the Top Ten.

Kudos to the other CagleCartoonists who made the Top Ten this week: Monte Wolverton, Bob Englehart and Bruce Plante.

There were three drawings of the president on the list this week – I can’t remember the last time that happened. We’re used to seeing editors shy away from drawing the president – but that was a different president.

The Top Ten cartoons are what most readers see since only 20% of the cartoons get 80% of the reprints. Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 62 cartoonists in our CagleCartoons.com syndication package.

Gamestop Clubbing

I still had my Thin Blue Line flag clubbing cartoon from last week on my mind when I heard the new reports about Reddit and Gamestop. Droves of Reddit users coordinated to drive up the stock price of Gamestop, a poorly performing, video game, brick and mortar store chain. Big Wall Street hedge funds had been “short selling” Gamestop, such that when Reddit users pushed the stock price up, the short sellers had to pay for most of the hugely inflated price of Gamestop, and the big Wall Street hedge funds took a nasty hit.

That’s the Reddit Robot on the right, with extended arms to weild the Gamestop club.

I put a label on the Wall Street pig – sorry about that, I know labels are for cartoonist sissies, but I didn’t want to draw Wall Street as a bull this time around.

Yes, I know Wall Street has three fingers and one thumb on one hand, and four fingers on the other hand, but a thumb is really another finger if you take a broader view, so he has four fingers on each hand. As it should be with Wall Street pigs.

Sedition Favorites

Next week the Senate will take up the second impeachment of former president Trump. It is a good time to look back on my sedition favorites from the MAGA mob insurrection at the capitol.

My cartoon shows a MAGA guy bashing a policeman on the head with his Thin Blue Line flag. I thought this made for a nice wordless cartoon, but cartoons are supposed to be exaggeration and commentary, but this one actually happened; there was a guy in the mob doing just this – so I suppose this is more of an illustration than a political cartoon.

Here are some of my favorite cartoons about the Capitol insurrection, to set the mood for next week.

Bob Englehart

Dave Whamond
