Funny Drawings (Cartoons)

Updated on February 12, 2015

Funny Pen Drawings

The drawings or cartoons if you like are based upon Jokes that made me laugh when I heard them. The person who told them is a practical joker and he even perpetrated some of them and played them on his friend. Sometimes instead of reading in bed, I think of a joke and try to bring it out in a simple pencil drawing. I am now doing some of them in colour (see them here). It is not always easy to do these drawings and sometimes I cannot even think of a good joke worth drawing.

So if you know one you may please leave it in Comments below so I can try to draw it later one.

The drawings are not great, but perhaps one or two of them will make you smile. When I was young we did not have mobile phones and laptops or tablets so we read a lot of comics like the Beano, Topper and the Dandy. I remember characters like "Desperate Dan", "Wear them out Wilf" and others as well. We used to exchange the comics between ourselves. Perhaps this is why I still like them. Here is the first one I drew. The principal character of the first 5 is Max a chubby chap of about 40 who is quite well-off and who considers himself a he-man, very sociable and friendly, who fears no one and yet he is afraid of snakes and ghosts among other things. He is naive and trusts his good friend Fred who just loves to play harmless tricks on him.

The first drawing below shows him up in the loft in his dark garage one evening trying to come down but his friend has secretly removed the ladder. Max is afraid of ghosts and he fears the worst. So he panics and shouts for help, calling his wife 'Maria'.

The next cartoon shows Max on the morning of a very windy day. He hates the wind because it might blow his cap away and this is what actually happened..... and precisely at the moment when someone is driving past. He wished that the earth would swallow him .............

To make matters worse, Fred his friend saw the whole incident and standing at some distance away (for his own good) he couldn't help remarking, "Did you see how she laughed !!!"

Comic Cartoons

Max's old car has stopped. He calls his friend to come and tow him (in the old-fashioned way). Fred, his friend (a practical joker) who loves to make him angry soon arrives with his pick-up and a strong rope. He tells Max to relax and to stay calmly in his car while he 'ties' the rope. In fact he does not tie any knots but just gives the rope a couple of turns. Fred drives off without looking back and pretending not to notice, leaving Max fuming and calling heartily after him with clenched fists, "Come back, STUPID. I'll kill you today".

After about 10 minutes of laughing his head off, Fred returns with his usual ready-made excuses, " I cannot understand, but did you apply the brakes or something". And eventually Max's car is successfully towed to the mechanic.

Max our chubby principal character is a sport, generous and kindhearted although he is always bluffing. His adventurous nature sometimes leads him into delicate situations. One morning he told Fred that that night they would be going to get some onions from his uncle's field. Fred, knew better. If it were Max's uncle's field, why were they going at night. He knew that Max liked to 'procure' things free sometimes even if he would give them to someone else afterwards.

That night, Fred could not resist acting on the spur of the moment and in the middle of their clandestine activity he uttered something like a low, "look out" and started to run.

Funny Comics

To put it bluntly, Max liked stealing. Christmas was approaching and he wanted to buy a turkey to feast upon with his friends. He would buy a lot of beer and some wine and they would have a lot of fun in his garage. Early one afternoon a few days before Christmas, Fred and Max happened to be driving by Angelo's chicken farm and lo and behold just inside the open gate a couple of fat white turkeys were strutting proudly in the yard. "Stop, stop". This was the mischievous Fred. "Do you see them. Go get one, this is your chance. Angelo would be having his siesta at this hour. Don't tell me you're afraid".

Max, got out of the car crouching low while Fred watched amusedly and waited for what he knew would happen................


Comic Strips

The following comic strips are "religious" or catholic featuring St. Peter. I had to do the first joke drawing in 4 frames so it was quite a job but very enjoyable.

Please view them one below the other.................


The next funny drawing is about St. Peter too, but now he is the chief guardian of the Gates of Heaven. The evil that men do lives after them (Shakespeare) and people do not forget such things.

On the night before the Passion, Jesus told St Peter that before the cock crows he would have denied Him 3 times. And so it came to pass. St. Peter was so sorry for what he had done and he does not want to be reminded of that sad event.


Pictorial Jokes

St. Peter in Heaven, this time dealing with a newly arrived Parson. The Parson was expecting a more dignified place and is jealous of the taxi-driver. St. Peter explains that the Taxi-driver has done by far more good than him.

Visual Fun


In this joke Peter is depicted as being somewhat presumptuous, a kind of Mr. Knowall. He complains that it is not right that a small plant bears a huge pumpkin while a large olive tree bears only small olives.

Some time later while he is resting in the shade an olive drops on his head and it hurts a little bit. Jesus smiles and comments, "You see, Peter. God created a perfect nature. Imagine what would have happened if that small olive that fell on your head were a fat pumpkin".

      I'm suffering from 'writers' block', I think they call it. I cannot think of a good, clean joke at the moment :-(

      Your cartoons are well drawn, and the enhanced commentary makes the jokes even funnier. I enjoyed this hub.
