The Twelve Cartoon Days of Christmas (TCDC)

Day 1 - Sunday December 14th, 2003
Featuring Cartoons by ...

Rick London's "Partridge in"
Simeon Liebman's "Pear Tree"

Welcome to Day 1! I hope you will join us each day for a unique romp through
the Christmas season. Mostly silly, sometimes a little serious, but always fun!
As host, it's my duty to make observations and comments, just to keep the good
times rolling. Now just sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip,
that started from this tropic port, aboard this tiny ship ... oops ... wrong story!
Today's cartoons are from Rick London and Simeon Liebman! Enjoy!
-Rich Diesslin, your TCDC host!

Don't you just hate it when that happens!

Hmmm, kinda looks like a reindeer? Nah ... unless it's the Little St. Nick's reindeer!
Do you hear Beach Boys music?

Well, I guess it's okay - as long as it brings presents!
Do you think this is one of the Real Macaws?

Day 2 - Monday December 15th, 2003
Featuring Cartoons by ...

Joe "2 Turtle Doves" Ruisi

Turtle Doves - A Rare Breed Indeed!

Apparently Turtle Doves must fly pretty well!?!
Now poor Rudolph will have to try to fit in all over again!

Day 3 - Tuesday December 16th, 2003
Featuring Cartoons by ...

Rick "3 French Hens" Enright

Feel free to implement any ideas you find on this site!

Don't you just hate it when that happens!
Perhaps you shouldn't implement this idea!

Day 4 - Wednesday December 17th, 2003
Featuring Cartoons by ...

Dina "4 Calling Birds" Pagil-Gerner

Remember that old game called "telephone" where you send a message
through several people and then compare the original message to the last
version of it ... and it is almost always very different? Well guess what ...

... four calling birds don't do the game any better!
(And they can't even blame their cell phones!)

Here's how I think it went:
Original: All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth!
1. All she wants for Christmas is her two plucked geese?
2. All he wants for Christmas is two licked fleece.
3. All it wants is two light sheep!
4. Just send something for two left feet!

Moral of the story: Don't believe everything a little bird tells you!

Day 5 - Thursday December 18th, 2003
Featuring Cartoons by ...

Joel "5 Golden Rings" Coughlin
and Featuring Joseph Carlson
and a few bonus cartoons!

Joel is sharing the lime light with his cartoonist cousin Joseph!
Now that's a nice thing to do for Christmas don't you think!?!
I hope you enjoy both of their efforts! I played the role of "reverse
gag writer" ... they gave me the graphic and I came up with
the gag! Fun and Challenging! -Rich

Joel's Toon:

Come on Gollum ... 5 rings are better than none!

Joseph's Toon:

If you've got it, flaunt it!?!

2 Bonus Toons!

Thought a few more toons would be in order. I hope you enjoy these
classic London's Times cartoons by Rich Diesslin and Rick London ...

Please do not try cartoon stunts at home ... these snowmen are trained professionals!

And what Christmas would be complete without an Elvis impersonator?

Day 6 - Friday December 19th, 2003
Featuring Cartoons by ...

Lan Hoang "6 Geese A-laying" Vu (a.k.a. VAL)

Normally I'd add my cute little TCDC Host comments but since VAL's an editorial cartoonist
and these cartoons are more "pictoral statements" ... you'll have to make up your own! -Rich

Day 7 - Saturday December 20th, 2003
Featuring Cartoons by ...

Larry "7 Swans A-Swimming" Miller


... and who wouldn't want a Swan-mart gift card anyway!
Cartoon Cool Stuff

Just watch out for that Santa Clause!

I don't know about you, but I want one of these!

Mmmmm ... turkey! Of course, no cartoon turkeys were hurt while making this cartoon!

Day 8 - Sunday December 21st, 2003
Featuring Cartoons by ...

Charles "8 Maids A-Milking" Filius

Cow confessions ...

Hey, we all know these people <g> ...

Just like most cartoonists ...

Oh yeah, there is also this notion of making a difference ...

I wonder what kind of toys these elves are making now!?!

Day 9 - Monday December 22nd, 2003
Featuring Cartoons by ...

Leonard "9 Ladies Dancing" Cachola


Can't wait for the DVD ... in living color (or not)!

You can tell this isn't the real Santa ... he would have said to use a google search!
Nah! He'd have said to tune in to TCDC tomorrow for that ... drop by then and
see what I mean!

Day 10 - Tuesday December 23rd, 2003
Featuring Cartoons by ...

Karl "10 Lords A-Leaping"

Looking for some reason for the season cartoons! You are in luck today!
While most of the TCDC cartoons hit on the generic meaning of the Christmas
Season, Karl's message is expressly Christian. He is sharing with us his fun and pointed
Church Mice series (with panels created for TCDC) along with some other more
general Christmas cartoons. It is the Twelve Cartoon Days of Christmas after all.
Enjoy! - Rich

Leaping is over-rated anyway <g>!!!

Just don't tell the ACLU that church allows public prayer - they might sue!

You really don't want to annoy a preacher mouse. Trust me, it can get ugly<g>!

A dim bulb for sure!

Cheese Grommet! Cheese! A fragrant melody!

Better than being in a jam!
<sorry I can't believe I said that>

Day 11 - Wednesday December 24th, 2003
Featuring Cartoons by ...

Finn "11 Pipers Piping" Andersson

Not to mention ... hold the pickles!
What do you bet Santa gets home only to find
643 Happy Meals ... all with toys!

Well, you have to have a hobby right!?!

Now that's what I'm talkin' about!

Day 12 - Thursday December 25th, 2003
Featuring Cartoons by ...

Rich "12 Drummers Drumming" Diesslin

Hey, you gotta admit, playing a drum is an unusual present -
but a partridge in a pear tree isn't exactly in all the stores either!
Cartoon Cool Stuff

In memory of Dr. Seuss and his most famous mischiefmaker, the Cat in the Hat!
Cartoon Cool Stuff

Don't worry, the cartoon child and cartoon snake were unharmed!
Yes, reality cartooning has gone too far!

Remember, Frosty comes back when it gets cold again ... he'll be okay!
