CCTV cartoon: A new spin on an old idea


"It followed me home, can we keep it?"

This cartoon appears in this week's edition of The Spectator. "He followed me home, can we keep him?" is, of course, an old line which has appeared in many forms in gag and strip cartoons over the years. It's usually a dog or some other creature. This was an attempt to put a modern spin on the line.

  2. Thanks, Surreal! I never thought of it as frightening but I suppose the camera does look quite menacing.

  3. Aww ... but I bet it was really cute when it was younger!

    Great gag, Royston!

  4. Ta, Cathy. So are you suggesting that it was once a Box Brownie? Clearly there's a back-story here which I was unaware of!

  5. Nice, Royston. The CCTV looks quite alive.

  6. It might well have been that as an adolescent. Before that, it was a shoebox with a screen of tracing paper and a pinhole in one of the sides!

  7. Thanks, Sumanta. Cathy, I think my first camera was one of those!
