Happy Cartoonists Day, May 3, 2008!

Fun-loving people everywhere are also urged to enjoy CARTOONISTS DAY and CARTOONIST APPRECIATION WEEK May 3-10.

May 5 has been designated as CARTOONISTS DAY because the first comic strip, The Yellow Kid, appeared a newspaper on May 5, 1895.

CARTOON APPRECIATION WEEK offers a chance to recognize the positive influence and laughs this art form has provided for so many years in films, books, newspapers, magazines, comic books, and commercial art.

Have you hugged a cartoonist today? How about a gift? Maybe a card with some money in it? Cookies? Anything? Anything at all?
