Cartoons Were Invented By Whom?

We-know, that there is quite a difference as to how something started years ago and the way it is to-day. Cartoon is the way to express.

The word was originally used by painters during the Italian Renaissance period. The term is still in use by the artists. A first sketch in actual size of any work of art covering a large area, such as a mural, a tapestry or stained glass window.

The newspapers and magazines started using drawings to illustrate new items, editorial opinion and to provide amusement. These drawings also came to be called cartoons.

In early days newspapers, famous caricaturists like Hogarth, Goya, Daumier and Rowlandson made series of drawings on a single theme. These drawings often pictured the adventures of one character. They were the ancestors of present day cartoons and comic strips.

In the 19th and early 20th century there were a number of magazines which specialized in cartoons – Charivari in Paris, Punch in London, and Life and Judge in the United States. When most newspapers-ad magazines in the United States started including cartoons as a regular feature, the humorous magazines lost the appeal and many of them stopped appearing.

The first comic strips appeared in the early 1900’s. Richard Outcault the artist the creator of Buster Brown, published this comic strip in the year 1902. It was very popular with children and they wanted to dress in ‘Buster Brown’ clothes.

Another early comic strip was ‘Bringing up Father’. It was released in the year 1912 and has since been translated into 27 languages and published in 71 countries.
