The World Cartoonist Day is celebrated on May 5, every year honoring some of the famous cartoons which stayed in the hearts of millions of people around the world. On this day, the cartoon memories are shared and celebrated as big function celebrating the nostalgic moments that the cartoons had created in the lives of the people.

The history of the celebration of the World Cartoonist day dates back to 1895 where a man named Richard F. Outcault introduced the comics through a small, bald boy named the “Yellow Kid.” The kid wore a bright yellow nightshirt and he is kind, warm, funny, selfless, caring and active who will bring happiness to everyone around him. He was first published in the now famous newspaper, “New York World.” 

Richard got his idea for the boy when he traveled to the slum areas and found boys just having fun, hanging out together, sitting in front of their doorsteps, etc. This made him draw the Yellow Kid.

Drawing is one fantastic hobby and passion and if your child has got it or you yourself has the talent to draw comics please to embrace and develop it. Comics are funny and educational at the same time as they stress some important issue happening around us in the world in a witty manner.
