cartoon (n.)

1670年代, “在结实的纸上作画” (用作另一作品的模型), 来自法语 carton, 或直接来自意大利语 cartone “结实, 厚重的纸, 糊纸”, 因此是“艺术家在这种纸上所作的初步草图” (见 carton). 延伸到报刊杂志上的图画是到1843年. 最初它们是为了鼓吹或攻击某个政治派别或思想, 后来它们也仅仅是滑稽的.

Punch has the benevolence to announce, that in an early number of his ensuing Volume he will astonish the Parliamentary Committee by the publication of several exquisite designs, to be called Punch's Cartoons! [Punch, June 24, 1843]

另见 -oon. 作为“动画电影”, 到1916年.

cartoon (v.)

1864年(隐含在 cartooned), “漫画或被漫画嘲笑”, 来自 cartoon (n.). 相关链接: Cartooning; cartoonery.
