Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – January 23, 2021

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (January 16th through January 23th 2021).

We have a tie for 10th place so the Top Ten is the Top Eleven this week. This was inauguration week and the presidential transition dominated the news and the cartoons.

Dave Granlund‘s #1 cartoon got far more reprints than #2 and the rest of the pack. Congratulations, Dave! Dave Whamond, Jeff Koterba and Bill Day also had a fantastic week, each with two cartoons in the Top Eleven.

Kudos to the other CagleCartoonists who made the Top Eleven list this week: Steve Sack, Bruce Plante, Randy Enos and David Fitzsimmons.

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.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – January 2, 2021

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (December 26th through January 2nd 2021).

Eight of the cartoons are on a New Years theme. As usual, there are no cartoons about Trump or Biden. Editors were most interested in cartoons about how terrible 2020 was.

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

The top cartoons on the list performed especially well, and the top three each would have been a number one cartoon in a normal week. Congratulations to #1 Dave Whamond, #2 Dave Granlund and #3 Bruce Plante!

And kudos to the other cartoonists on the Top Ten this week: Jeff Koterba, Rick McKee, Pat Byrnes, John Darkow, Gary McCoy, Randall Enos and Peter Kuper!

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

Top Ten Cartoons of 2020

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of the year, 2020. We have about 700 newspapers in the USA that subscribe to our CagleCartoons.com syndicate service and we collect data on which cartoons newspaper editors download; these cartoons were the biggest hits – each was the #1 cartoons the week it ran.

The most reprinted cartoons of the year provide a clear lesson in what newspaper editors wanted to see with five of the cartoons explicitly about the pandemic and a couple of others generally about bad times. The cartoons emphasize how much editors want to see cartoons about holidays and events (Christmas, New Year, Election Day, Daylight Savings Time Day, change of season). The cartoons also clearly show how most newspaper editors tend to avoid cartoons about politics and president Trump, to the frustration of the political cartoonists.

What is most amazing about the Top Ten cartoons this year is the stellar performance of Dave Granlund who took the #1 and #2 spots with the most reprinted cartoons of the year. Jeff Koterba, Dave Whamond and I have two cartoons each on the list.

Congratulations to the other cartoonists with a most reprinted cartoons of the year: Dave Fitzsimmons. Rick McKee and Steve Sack! Check out the cartoons below!

#1

Dave Granlund wins the year with this wildly popular Christmas/Pandemic cartoon.

#3

Jeff Koterba takes third place with his first of two cartoons in the Top Ten.

 

#4

Dave Whamond takes 4th place, with the first of two cartoons on the list. Cartoons complaining about what a terrible year 2020 was, were very popular.

 

#5

I took 5th place with this general complaint about the bad times.

 

#6

Jeff Koterba takes 6th place with this COVID/New Year combo – his second on the list.

 

#7

My second cartoon on the list was a call to vote emphasizing “mail-in voting” which President Trump claimed was fraudulent because more Democrats tend to vote by mail.

 

#8

Dave Whamond claims 8th place with this cartoon about distance learning. Cartoons about school during the pandemic were top performers with editors this year.

 

#9

Rick McKee takes 9th place with Christmas/COVID combo cartoon.

Trump Doggie!

Here’s my new cartoon, “What the Doggie Hears”.

I’ve actually drawn quite a few Trump Doggies. I remember when Trump hired his The Apprentice contestant, Omarosa, in the White House, then he called her a “dog” and she bit back, writing a tell-all book.

 

Here is Trump as Putin’s dutiful doggie, when Trump was congratulating Putin on his re-election.

 

Here’s a Christmas cartoon from 2016 with Trump and former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson as Putin presents.

Here are some of my favorite Trump Doggies from the CagleCartoonists. This one is from Bill Day.

 

Here’s a Trump doggie oldie with ex-Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, by Ed Wexler.

 

Here is a great one from Taylor Jones.

 

This one with Trump and France’s President Macron is by Dutch cartoonist Joep Bertrams.

Get Rid of the Pollsters

What is it about pollsters and how wrong they get everything? This presidential election wasn’t supposed to be close. Democrats were supposed to have a shot at winning the Senate and picking up seats in the House. The pollsters are wrong more than they are right. Lets give pollsters the boot.

Here’s my rough sketch …

Here’s a detail …

Stinking, idiot pollsters!
