Cartoons aren't just a way for kids to spend a Saturday morning anymore. Today, cartoons have grown up, and adults enjoy them just as much as kids do. They've also gotten more sophisticated--a great deal of artistry and money goes into producing cartoons, and the quality of cartoons has grown as much as their popularity. Cartoons have become so popular that there are television channels devoted exclusively to them, and this enthusiasm has extended to the Internet. There are several websites dedicated to cartoon pictures, where you can find everything from Daffy Duck to the Simpsons.
Many of these sites also feature puzzles, columns, e-cards and online stores. Some cartoon picture websites are designed solely for entertainment, but many are commercial as well. Some charge a membership fee, which provides unlimited access to site features. Other sites are databases where you can search cartoon pictures by type, and purchase for download the ones you want. They can then be used for print or web publications, or for use in presentations. Many sites also sell merchandise, such as mugs and T-shirts, that feature cartoon pictures. At some sites, you can subscribe to free newsletters, in which you receive weekly cartoons and links to cartoon-related news.
Cartoon picture websites usually classify their pictures by category. You can find political cartoons, which comment on current events. You can also find cartoon pictures related to certain professions, such as medicine, law, teaching or business. You can also find extensive directories of pictures from popular television cartoons or feature films. You can find the well-known ones, like Batman, 101 Dalmatians, Betty Boop and Garfield, but you can also find more obscure cartoons, as well as those from other countries. Some cartoon picture websites feature only one type of picture, such as flowers or dragons, but most have a wide variety.
