A gag cartoon is a funny sketch with a story line meant to amuse and make people laugh. Gad cartoon address isues like Marriage, Divorce, Extravegnce, Living and Style, in a very funny manner without reference to any personality figure in the society . On the other hand, a gag cartoon (aka panel cartoon or gag panel) is most often a single-panel cartoon, usually including a hand-lettered or typeset caption beneath the drawing. A pantomime cartoon carries no caption. In some cases, dialogue may appear in speech balloons, following the common convention of comic strips.
As the name implies—"gag" being a show business term for a comedic idea—these cartoons are most often intended to provoke laughter. Popular magazines that have featured gag cartoons include ''Punch'', ''The New Yorker'' and ''Playboy''. Some publications, such as ''Humorama'', have used cartoons as the main focus of the magazine, rather than articles and fiction.
Captions are usually concise, to fit on a single line. Gag cartoons of the 1930s and earlier occasionally had lengthy captions, sometimes featuring dialogue between two characters depicted in the drawing; over time, cartoon captions became shorter. A well-known 1928 cartoon in ''The New Yorker'', drawn by Carl Rose and captioned by E. B. White, shows a mother trying to convince her young daughter to finish her meal. "It's broccoli, dear." "I say it's spinach and I say the hell with it."
