At the time of publication, there were 68,647 cartoons in all. Try lifting that book on your lap for a cozy read! Lucky for us, only 2,004 of them appear on the page; the rest can be found on two CDs included with the book. Seeing the world through black and white drawings, spanning from the 1920s to the present day is an interesting way to glimpse eight decades of pop culture. Great fun!
