Grim Reaper Cartoons

grim reaper cartoons
Grim reaper cartoons about the reaper paying a visit and scaring the heck out of various cartoon characters! I never took death seriously until I started getting older and seeing friends and relatives getting sick and passing away from various maladies.

Death Cartoons

Some killed in motor vehicle accidents too. None of it is funny in any sense of the word. No doubt the reaper will visit us all eventually. Ironically, I try to see some sense of humor amidst all of it by creating reasonably funny (at least from my viewpoint) grim reaper cartoon characters that inject a little humor into some bizarre scenarios. I referred to it in a previous post, as the proverbial man on desert island gag that still gets traction in print. Notice my cartoon reaper overwatch an oblivious character in each panel that makes each cartoon unique.

This same aspect of gag writing applies to the grim reaper. As I think on the fly, if you let your mind open up a bit, a lot of good quality reaper jokes can start pouring in. As I write this I am thinking of concepts such as

  • Grim reaper driving a hearse
  • Grim reaper hitchhiking with a sign: Florida
  • Grim reaper with scythe goes into a doorway ‘Tools Sharpened’
  • Grim reaper sits at desk – sign on door ‘Mortician’
  • Dead Heads at Grateful Dead show are scared by partying Reaper

These are basic ideas that came to mind as I wrote this post in “free-styling” thought mode, but you get the idea. Just let your free thinking take over and you ought to be able to generate a large number of these kinds of cartoon gags.

Incidentally, I also thought of exchanging the reaper’s ugly old weed scythe with a nice looking  Husqvarna brand weed wacker. Well, for that matter, any generic brand looking weed trimming tool would do but I think if you’re a writer, you definitely know where I am coming from!
