Cartoons I Didn’t Draw

[This post is part of an idea dump.]

Over the years, I’ve drawn a bunch of little cartoons for Ironic Sans. Some became part of an Esoteric Comics series. Others were standalone posts. But I still have a big list of comics I never got around to drawing. Some were for lack of time, and some were for lack of knowing exactly how I would do it.

For example, I’ve always wanted to do a one-panel cartoon of an alligator driving a car with a bumper sticker that says “My son is a black belt.” But I couldn’t quite figure out how to draw it from an angle so you can see the driver is an alligator and also read the bumper sticker.

So here’s a bunch of cartoons that didn’t get done. Some are fully formed in my head, and others are just caption ideas. If anyone wants to draw them, I’ll post them in a follow-up:

• An alligator driving a car with a bumper sticker that says “My son is a black belt.”

• Neil Young with two heads and three arms, playing guitar on stage and singing “…searching for the Heart of Gold”

• Shields and Brooke Shields. (It turns out I’m no good at drawing either of them)

• Dilbert Gottfried.

• Members of the Jetson family washed up on a beach with other debris. Caption: “Flotsam and Jetsons.”

• Flat Stanley gets fed up with the nickname and goes to get breast implants.

• The Terence Trent Derby. You know, a race of Terent Trent D’Arbys.

• Mario and Weegee. (the plumber and the street photographer)

• WALL-E and the Beav. (Or perhaps WALL-E and the EVE drawn Leave-it-to-Beaver style, whatever that would be)

• Mecca Godzilla. (Um, this one I might not post.)

Wow. Listing them all like this makes me realize my humor seems mostly derived from bad puns.

For the alligator comic, draw him driving a convertible with the roof down.

They aren’t bad puns — they’re *terrible* puns :-)

Maybe you should just send a link to this post to Dan Piraro for use in his Sunday Punnies strips?

These are great. I love a good pun.

The alligator dad could sport a t-shirt with that saying, rather than a bumper sticker.

Some of these would fit in seamlessly with Craig Swanson’s oevre:

For the last one, have you seen South Park’s Mecha Streisand?
