Cartoon Sheep

Updated on March 23, 2014

The Adventures of Cecil the Sheep & His Friends.

A gallery of original, offbeat, surreal sheep (and other) cartoons. Great entertainment for the whole family (except the kids).

Cecil the Sheep has been with me for over 20 years. In that time, he and partner Celia have had many exciting experiences.

There are dozens of Cecil the Sheep drawings in this collection. Explore this space and enjoy the fun!

Cecil the Cupid Sheep gets it right ... - ... eventually.

Cecil the Santa Sheep miscalculates his entry. - HO! HO! OH! AAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!!

The Nativity Incident

Cecil the Sheep drives his car... - It's an original 1967 Volkswagen Beetle. He loves it!

Celia the Sheep hits pay dirt! - I made this birthday card for my mother.

She passed away five years ago. I was going through her papers and realised that she'd kept this. It made me happy and sad at the same time.

Cecil the Sheep goads his timid crew...

I love the way Squidoo lets you showcase your art.

Cecil the Sheep ends another distasteful evening as a chauffeur.

As an accountant... - Cecil the Sheep eyes a piece of new technology with scepticism.

And yes, I have spelt 'scepticism' correctly!

One of Cecil's friends is Fluffy, the Farting, Biting Cat. - In this vignette, we see Fluffy discover the Christmas lights.

Cecil the Sheep beats the Americans back to the moon... - And the Indians. And the Chinese. And Richard Branson!

And the Russians.

Cecil the Sheep is unconscious of his mortality. - I don't mean to get heavy here, but Cecil has forced me to consider some of LIFE's BIG QUESTIONS.

Is it better or worse to know that one is destined to die?

Celia the Sheep opens a cutting-edge boutique... - Not for the faint hearted!

Developing Cecil the Sheep - a friend's challenge... - One of my best mates commissioned me to draw a cartoon entitled 'Cecil the Sheep guffaws over his bumper

I never imagined one simple face could feature so many permutations.

And the result... - Here's how the guffaw cartoon turned out.

It's quite rough, since at that time I was doing sketches for the purpose of manually reproducing them onto T-shirts (which today are keenly sought by collectors).

Celia the Ballerina Sheep

Cecil and Celia the Sheep get married... - And celebrate their honeymoon in style!

Another of Cecil's friends is Michael the Rat. - Here he is, having a drink after a difficult day.

I feel like this quite often. Do you?

Your view is sought on an issue gripping the globe!

Who is the best Looney Tunes character?

See results

Cecil the Sheep cranks up his guitar... - It's a very rare and expensive Rickenbacker!

Cecil the Sheep has an accident... - I hope this is covered under his income protection insurance.

Cecil the Sheep visits the fish and chips shop... - And has a little joke with the proprietor.

Cecil introduced himself when I was doing my HR degree... - I was taking notes when this image manifested at the bottom of my page!

He's been with me ever since.

Cecil the Sheep has tried many occupations... - Fortunately, this was just a Halloween costume.

Actually, that's not strictly true...

As a podiatrist... - Cecil the Sheep once tackled a particularly tricky biomedical assessment.

As a carpenter... - Cecil was known to give work experience kids a bit more experience than they bargained for!

One of LIFE's big questions.

Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck: Why?

Mickey rules 4 EVER!

      donald...... too grumpy

    • Patricia 7 years ago

      Mickey for me. I just like him better. Donald duck sprays when he talks.

    • anonymous 7 years ago

      Goody two shoes! No I think you're wrong AJ....its M-i-c-k-e-y!!! I'm real sure of that.... 4 ever!!!!

    • anonymous 7 years ago

      Mickey Mouse, because I love to sing his theme song. It has just stuck with me for _ years! haha!

    • anonymous 8 years ago

      Because mickey has always been the favorite to many and because donald loses his temper to much so mickey is the best with kids.Plus who can make a mouse look cuter than mickey himself?

    • Deb Bryan 8 years ago from Chico California

      Mickey rules 4 EVER! Mickey captured my heart when he traded his harmonica to buy a gold chain for Minnie's watch, and Minnie traded her locket [the watch] to buy a case for Mickey's harmonica. "Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas - The Gift of the Magi" [Based on a short story by William Sydney Porter, aka O. Henry. 1906]

    • anonymous 8 years ago

      Mickey was the first and he's the leader of the pack.

    • julieannbrady 8 years ago

      Well, give me a well-spoken mouse any day as the duck is not all that he's quacked up to be. ;)

    • anonymous 8 years ago

      Are you out of your mind! Mickey is the original & the best! Donald is & always will be a wannabe.

    Donald is the REAL DEAL!

        His character is based on me:)

      • CruiseReady 6 years ago from East Central Florida

        I was blown away when my (then) three year old scowled derisively at the tv, and said, "Ducks can't talk!" Been a little fond of cartoon ducks ever since!~

      • ideadesigns 6 years ago

        Donald Duck. I just like him.

      • bt55 6 years ago

        It has to be Donald. He is the one everybody calls for in an emergency! Nobody ever called out "!MOUSE!"

      • MargoPArrowsmith 6 years ago

        Donald! Mickey is a wim

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        My greatest fear is now realized, a typo in the presence of a professional proof reader--ouch!

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        I rally do find both of these fellows to be quite irresistible and almost was going for Mickey this time but one cannot change who they are--it's still Donald for me!

      • anonymous 7 years ago

        Has ro be Donald - MIckey is too much of a goody two shoes

      • anonymous 7 years ago

        That's a hard choice, both are so much fun--I'll go with the duck because of that voice!

      • Four_Eyes 8 years ago

        Donald the Duck

      • anonymous 8 years ago

        Mickey is nice, but Donald just has an authentic charm about him that gives him the edge!

      • CCGAL 8 years ago

        Donald because it's a lot more fun to mimic his voice than Mickey's.

      • anonymous 8 years ago

        I just love Duck Dodgers.

      • anonymous 8 years ago

        Mickey has charm, but Donny's the real deal.

      • GrowWear 8 years ago

        I just love that duck! He's the more sympathetic character.

      • Paul Hassing 8 years ago

        Mickey is a bit of a woos and his overblown of media exposure is galling. Donald is more in touch with his id. His actions and reactions seem less contrived. What say you?

      Celia the Sheep knocks out a few sausage rolls.

      And now, a sneak peek at my mate's newest creation! - This is the world's first glimpse of an unpublished cartoon.

      It will later appear at www.lifeonearthcartoons.com which is already well worth a visit.

      Christmas can be a stressful time... - Here we see Cecil the Santa Sheep suffering a psychotic episode.

      Hands up if you've ever felt this way at Christmas!

      Cecil & Celia the Sheep flunk ballet school... - So you think you can dance... dance... dance!

      Where's Kat Deely when you need her?!

      The best sheep animation I've ever seen. - Wish I'd done this one. Hope you dig it!

      Cecil is eager to hear from you... - ...Please leave your message here!

Bet you could sell that on tee-shirts / mousepads / mugs to cat lovers, cat haters, and people who like interesting cartoons. My second favorite is where the cat discovers the x-mas lights. I like the sheep, too, but the 2 cat ones tickled me pea-green and spotted (showing my age with THAT expression). GOOD JOB!!!

          Would love to sit and watch you draw. Cartoonist are fast. I've done some and got pretty good at it. I'm a detailed artist, painstakingly so.- I enjoyed the style, color, contrasts and balance. Put together well! Keep it coming, and remind me to re-visit.

          How much fun you must have! What a delight. I just could not bring myself to choose between Donald and Mickey, have always loved them both. I was quite relieved when the henchman outfit was just a Halloween costume, I hope. May Cecil and Cecilia live long in the land of happily ever after!

          The adventures of Cecil the Sheep are hilarious. I've been laughing out loud. Thanks for bringing him to the attention of the world. I look forward to seeing more of his nutty enterprises.

          Cecil is a classic. Santa Cecil miscalculating is my favourite. Please keep posting!

          Dear Baz, so glad you're digging the scene. No publishing deal yet, but I'm hoping this Squidoo experience can help me secure one. Failing that, I may just do it myself; technology is making this easier and easier.
