Top Ten Cartoons of September 16th, 2022!

While cartoonists have been covering the invasion since February, Ukraine’s counteroffensive against Russia last week drew new attention on a conflict that’s raged on for nearly seven months.

This week’s most reprinted cartoon was a funny poke at the debate over daylight saving time drawn by cartoonist Guy Parsons. Back in March, the U.S. Senate passed a bill that would make daylight saving time permanent starting in 2023. But like everything else in Washington these days, nothing has happened since.

Here are our top ten most reprinted cartoons of the week:

#1. Guy Parsons,


#2. Dave Whamond,


#3. Bruce Plante,


#4. Dave Granlund,


#5. Guy Parsons,


#6. Dave Whamond,


#7. John Darkow, Columbia Missourian


#8. Pat Byrnes,


#9. Adam Zyglis, Buffalo News


#10. John Darkow, Columbia Missourian

Iwo Jima and Baby Formula

Here’s my new cartoon about the military delivering baby formula.

I think of the Iwo Jima memorial being a standard cliché for editorial cartoonists, and I looked back in my archive for some Iwo Jima oldies to put into this post, and I couldn’t find any –maybe I haven’t done one before. Crazy.  It’s like an editorial cartoonist never drawing the Statue of Liberty.

So I started looking for some favorites among the CagleCartoonists, and I didn’t find as many as I expected –but I would some oldies I liked. This one is by Bill Schorr, who was drawing about the sexual assault scandal in the military, twelve years ago.

This oldie is by Dutch cartoonist, Hajo, with the Iwo Jima positioning a general symbol of America.

This one is by Dave Granlund, who doesn’t like President Trump, when Trump referred to US solders buried in France as “Losers” and “Suckers”.

This one is by cartoonist Gary McCoy, who doesn’t like President Obama.

My Favorite Ukraine Flag Cartoons

Here are my favorite Ukraine Flag cartoons, starting with three of my own.  The first is my memorial cartoon for Ukraine’s civilian deaths.

This one is on America’s support for Ukraine …

This is my first Ukraine flag cartoon, drawn 28 years ago in 1984 for the Muppets and Hasbro/Playskool. I claim this as the first Ukraine flag cartoon! (Considering that Ukraine was founded as an independent nation in 1991, 21 years ago.)

Here are more favorites by the CagleCartoonists …

This Picasso inspired cartoon is by Emad Hajjaj, from Jordan.


This Van Gogh inspired cartoon is by Emad’s brother, Osama Hajjaj, from Jordan.


This one is by Ed Wexler, from Los Angeles.


This one is by Kap, from Barcelona, Spain.


This one is by Hajo, from the Netherlands.


… and this one is by Jeff Koterba, from Nebraska.

Losers and Suckers

Here’s my new cartoon about Donald Trump’s comments, reported in The Atlantic, calling dead and wounded service members “losers” and “suckers”.

 Here’s a nice one from New Yorker cartoonist, Pat Byrnes who just joined and I’m a big Pat Byrnes fan.

This next one is by my buddy, Bill Day.

We’ve got a new blog design that should be more phone friendly! Also, comments should be easier!  I’m still getting used to it. I like the “infinity page” thing. Leave a comment and let me know what you think.

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

TRUE Stupid Stuff 2!

Here’s another new batch of my old TRUE cartoons from the 1990’s – at least the ones that look like they could still be true. This is from a batch about government.

TRUE Stupid Stuff!

Here’s a new batch of my old TRUE cartoons. I’m disappointed that so many of these are are dated and don’t hold up over time. I think the stats have only gotten worse in the past 20 years. I’m this batch, there must be twice as many taxing agencies, and the national debt must equal four times the number of grains of surface sand on Jones beach, times $2. I’m putting these up on and and I see that newspapers are starting to run them. I hope those newspapers aren’t counting grains of sand.

Trump and Rep Frederica Wilson

The story about President Trump’s awkward condolence call to the widow of a fallen soldier has dragged on for more than a week. I wasn’t going to draw about it, but as the story droned on and on, with more awkward false tweets and statements from the White House, it looks like I can’t avoid this one.

See more cartoons on the topic here. Here are a few of my favorites; the first is by RJ Matson.

Isn’t the hair nice on this Ed Wexler cartoon?

I think the image of Trump throwing paper towels to the hurricane victims in Puerto Rico, and Trump’s love of walls struck a chord with Marian Kamensky.

Sean Delonas may be our most conservative cartoonist. Here Sean shows his disgust for Congresswoman Frederica Wilson.

Our consistently conservative cartoonist, Rick McKee, seems to like Chief of Staff John Kelly’s statement, even though it contained false accusations about the Congresswoman.

Nate Beeler can sometimes lean to the right too …

Here’s one from Steve Sack.

I think this Pat Bagley cartoon is my favorite.

Trump Troops for Afghanistan

The news seems to repeat itself. Today President Trump announced yet another increase in troops for Afghanistan – after campaigning on getting us out of Afghanistan. Here’s the cartoon.

Look familiar? It wasn’t much different with President Obama …

Somehow I think I’ll be drawing this cartoon with each new president for another 17 years – if I live that long.

Cartooning for the Troops in Bahrain

I went on my first National Cartoonists Society (NCS), USO trip last week. The NCS has a long history of working with the USO, dating back to the 1950’s and we’re cheap entertainment – all we need is a pen, a pad of paper and a place to sit.

Bahrain, aside from some flashy skyscrapers downtown, is a pretty desolate looking desert, with beige sand, a beige sky and searing heat. Bahrain is a kingdom that has a long bridge to Saudi Arabia. The Saudis like to come to Bahrain to go to a movie, shop and go out for dinner. I suspect the food, movies and restaurants in Saudi Arabia leave something to be desired, so Bahrain is crammed full of hotels, shopping and restaurants.

Cartoonists at the “Tree of Life,” from left to right: Paul Combs, Michael Ramirez, Dave Mowder,Todd Clark, Daryl Cagle and Ed Steckley.

Out in the middle of nowhere there is a tree they call the “Tree of Life” that grows where there are no other trees in sight. The locals think the tree is thousands of years old, left over from the Garden of Eden. Those cans on the ground are flood lights. Our group of cartoonists is there in the photo, from left to right, Paul Combs (fireman cartoonist and former political cartoonist for the Tampa Tribune); Michael Ramirez, the knuckle-dragging, Neanderthal, right-wing, Pulitzer-winning star editorial cartoonist; Dave Mowder, Illustrator and character cartoonist; Todd Clark, who draws the comic strip “Lola” and writes gags for another half a dozen top strips; next is me in a Hawaiian shirt, and on the right is Ed Steckley, a brilliant caricature artist/illustrator from New York.

I enjoy drawing for the troops! They seem to really appreciate the cartoons. Typically, they will pull out a cell phone with a photo of a boyfriend, a girlfriend or a dog from back home. I sometimes suggest combining the boyfriend with the dog, which is a big hit with the women soldiers, although it doesn’t work the other way around – “girlfriend as a dog” cartoons are to be avoided!

There are US military installations all around Bahrain, including a very big naval base where we spent a good deal of time drawing. We visited a Patriot missile installation and got a great lesson on how the anti-missile missiles work, but they wouldn’t let us shoot one off.

We had originally been slated to visit Afghanistan, but the Pentagon “locked down” Afghanistan as “too dangerous,” so Bahrain was the safe, backup plan. I’m told that some of these NCS/USO cartoonist trips can be rather rugged and adventurous. Since this was my first time, I have nothing to compare it to. It wasn’t rugged. We had a nice hotel. But is was still an adventure.

I was the oldest guy on the trip. It seems to me that the troops are getting younger as I get older. They are kids. Big, tough kids. I appreciate all they do and it was great fun to sit an talk with so many of them.

Red Lines!

Here’s my new cartoon on “red lines” in Syria. President Trump seems to have embraced “red lines” and we’re hearing that Trump may order new attacks in response to other, non-poison gas related atrocities in Syria.

The thing I liked most about Trump during the campaign was his often-sated promise to keep us our of Middle East wars. Now Trump owns the crayon.

I did this one as a live stream – but the drawing was pretty minimal, and the conversation during the short video wasn’t very entertaining, that I decided to skip uploading the video this time. I’m also behind on posting cartoons and I need to catch up! Too much to do – sorry!

Trump’s Cabinet Picks

Trump’s cabinet picks are heavy with generals and billionaires. Saturday Night Live’s depiction of Breaking Bad’s Walter White as the choice to head the Drug Enforcement Agency made me laugh and let to this cartoon.

It is said that some artists drawings all look like themselves, or all look like their wives – for me, everything I draw harkens back to my Muppet days – and all my chickens look like Camilla. (Camilla is the chicken girlfriend of Gonzo.) I can’t get her out of my head; Camilla haunts me.
