Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – September 19, 2020

Here are our top cartoons of last week (September 12th through September 19th, 2020).

This was an incredible week for Dave Granlund who dominates with four cartoons among the Top Ten most reprinted cartoons.

Every so often, when there is more demand for a topic than there are cartoons on the topic, I’ll repost “evergreen” oldies into the syndication flow, and I’ll mark them “REPOST” so editors won’t be embarrassed by forgetting that they ran the oldie before. Last week I reposted a few cartoons about the wildfires on the West coast, including one by Dave Granlund that made the Top Ten – the first time that has ever happened with a reposted cartoon.

As usual, no drawings of Trump made the Top Ten this week.  Six of the top cartoons are about the pandemic, two are about the fires, and only one is about the election.

Congratulations to Dave Fitzsimmons  for nabbing the #1 spot. Jeff Koterba was close behind at #2.  Jeff continues his long streak of appearances in the Top Ten, the day after being laid off from 31 years on the job at The Omaha World-Herald newspaper.

And kudos to the other CagleCartoonists who made the most reprinted list this week, John Cole, Randy Enos, Dave Whamond and Bruce Plante.

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, so do editorial cartoonists who depend on newspapers, and along with them, our Cagle.com site, that our small, sinking syndicate largely supports, along with our fans.

California Fires

The fires around me in Southern California are terrible this week. The skies are brown, the ash falls like snow, and the firemen are heroes. Here’s my California flag cartoon on the firefighters.

There’s lots of frightening stuff going on outside! Stay safe!
