The cartoons for the frescoes, some of them absurd in their attempts to appear heroic, were exhibited in 1843 and parodied shortly thereafter in the English magazine Punch, thus earning the word cartoon its modern definition of a humorous or satirical drawing.
Cartoons may also be used in greeting cards, or they may be distributed through a cartoon bank, where large numbers of cartoons are scanned into a computer and made available to any publisher seeking a cartoon relating to a particular theme.
The broadsheet cartoon subsequently played a vital role in mobilizing public opinion in events such as the Eighty Years' War between the Dutch and the Spanish (1568-1648), the Thirty Years' War in Germany (1618-1638), and the European wars against Louis XIV of France (late 17th century to early 18th century).

 Gag cartoon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A Gag Cartoon is a single-panel cartoon, usually including a written caption that appears beneath the drawing.
As the name implies—"gag" being a show business term for a comedic idea—these cartoons are most often intended to provoke laughter.

 History of the Cartoon
Cartoon (humorous drawing), pictorial sketch or caricature, by implication humorous or satirical, and usually published in a newspaper, magazine, or periodical.
Before the introduction of the term “cartoon” in its modern sense in the 19th century, satirical and humorous drawings of all kinds were referred to as caricatures.
Other cartoons, however, such as those of Steve Bell in Britain, whose attacks on the premiership of Margaret Thatcher were described in the House of Lords in 1987 as “an almost obscene series of caricatures”, seem to be reviving the tradition of malicious lampoonery that harks back to Gillray.
