    Hi Eli,
    Had a laugh by stopping in at your main page on the way over. For some reason I found ‘Honk if you love mud’ hysterically funny, and I spat my brazil nuts (can’t find any candy) all over myself.
    The Nick Mag specials are spectacular. I haven’t ever seen such a huge range of talent outside those big arty anthologies, there are literally pages of credits for the artists concerned. Plus they like the odd gag cartoon.

    To honor and preserve the legacy of my late uncle, Syd Hoff, I’ve created . Although there’s still a lot of information I’ve yet to upload, there’s plenty to enjoy, including articles/interviews/ cartoons and more. Syd gifted the world with so much – not only as a children’s author, but as a cartoonist and humorist as well. He contributed 571 cartoons to the New Yorker, wrote over 150 books and is probably best known today as the beloved author of “Danny and the Dinosaur” (over 10 million copies). 2008 marks its 50th anniversary.
    Enjoy the website and let me know if you have any “Syd” memories to share… Carol

  5. Two questions:
    Two questions:
    Do you have the very first cartoon you ever did archived in here? (Sold or not)
    Do you have an all time favorite cartoon of yours … you know … the one that’s “you” more than any other?

  6. This is an amazing, cool,
    This is an amazing, cool, comprehensive and FuNnY site on so many levels. I think it’s time for the EliSteinCartoons book.

  7. Thanks, Sharon, for the two
    Thanks, Sharon, for the two comments. The answer to your first question is no, my first cartoon is not archived here. It was published in a syndicated comic strip called “Silly Milly” and was seen locally in The New York Post in November 1946. The cartooonist who created and drew Silly Milly was Stan MacGovern. I was a teenage kid and had a gag that I thought he could use in his strip. I sent it to him and also sent along a cartoon sketch to show him how I thought it should appear. To my amazement, he reproduced my sketch and built his very funny eight-panel strip around it. There was no payment involved — of course, I would have paid him to do what he did with my “cartoon”.

    Will I ever archive it? Maybe sometime in the future. I don’t think I’m ready to showcase it right now.

    As for my favorite cartoon, that’s like asking a parent who his favorite child is. I don’t want to pinpoint any one cartoon, but throughout this archive I have often singled out a cartoon that I have labeled a “personal favorite”. So now your job is to look through the archive to find them — I think I’ve pointed out about a dozen so far.

  8. I can’t believe I haven’t
    I can’t believe I haven’t discovered your site before now. I’m having a blast going through your hilarious and smart cartoons! You are a find Mr. Stein!

  9. Many thanks, Brad. I’ve been

    Many thanks, Brad. I’ve been posting stuff on this blog/archive since 2006, so you’ve got a lot of catching up to do.

  10. Thanks very, very much, Steve

    Thanks very, very much, Steve. I enjoyed looking through your site, too.

  11. You have got to be kidding!!!
    You have got to be kidding!!!! You indicate that you add your past cartoon caption, but only as a reference. But, which person do you choose? The person who compliments your entry is the winner. How asinine is that? You might as well submit a multiple four chose answer for your contests, and anyone who chooses your answer is the winner. Think about it!
