A Word of Clarification about Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest . . .

I generally start a new contest every three weeks, and it runs for a one-week period. I announce it with a post headed “Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. –“.

In the gap between contests, I continue to add to my archive of my own published cartoons (identified with a heading containing the name of the publication and a date or year), and I also sometimes post other cartoon-related items. So far I’ve archived over 1,500 of my published cartoons.

Lately, several people have been erroneously sending in captions for my archived/published cartoons. I just want to make it clear that the new contest starts only when you see “Eli’s Cartoon Caption Contest No. –” at the top of the posting.

I hate to see anybody wasting his or her caption-writing talent! Thanks again to all of you for participating.

See Comments and Add Your Own


Welcome to the Eli Stein Cartoon archive. To begin, read my introduction and personal notes, and then please look at the cartoons, which are categorized by either decade, publication name or topic. I’ve included some personal comments, memories and photos below many of the cartoons. I’ll be adding cartoons, memories and photos ad infinitum. Remember, your comments are appreciated (just click on the “comment” link at the bottom of each post).
