What's New The Toons The People Behind the Toons The Companies that Produce the Toons Other Stuff Awards and Citations Frequently Asked Questions Unauthorized Use Policy Today in Toons
Welcome to the world's first hypertext encyclopedia of toons — which will soon, I hope, come to be regarded as the Internet's most comprehensive source of information about the U.S. toon scene.
So, what's a toon?
A toon is a cartoon or cartoon character — "cartoon" referring not just to the animated kind, but also to such "still cartoons" as comic books, newspaper strips, magazine cartoons, etc.
Here at Don Markstein's Toonopedia, we take a very broad view of what constitutes a toon. The basic idea is to cover the entire spectrum of American cartoonery.
I realize I haven't exactly blanketed the field yet, but I think the thousand-plus toon topics I've written up so far should qualify at least as a light coverlet. And it will get more inclusive as time goes on, as I intend to continue adding new ones and updating the ones I've got, into the indefinite future.
Here's what I've done so far.
