CARToons Up And Running!


Gathered this little revival off the newsstand a few weeks ago. CARToons wasn't a regular on my buy list back in the day, I'm not really a car guy but this wacky chaotic cover by veteran artist Steve Austin made me give the issue a closer look. The original from Peterson Publications has been gone for several decades now (along with its mates CYCLEToons, SURFToons, SKIToons, HOT ROT Toons, etc.) but this revival has a nifty spirit. This magazine is not going to be a regular on my buy list now, but it was a long of fun tumbling through the pages and remembering how magazines like this one were once upon a time generations ago a mainstream part of car culture, and beyond. Here's a link to their website if you'd like to know more.


And here is a rather cool cameo by the one and only Mister Magoo in HOT ROD Cartoons which I stumbled across while looking things up.

  1. I discovered the reboot of this cartoon 'zine a year or so ago on the B&N magazine rack. Was a regular reader of the titles during the original run. This new series isn't quite up to that, but still good for some zany fun. Ed "Big Daddy" Roth rules!

    1. I picked up issues now and again back in those bygone days, mostly hungry for some good comic art and often finding it.
