Science cartoon: The gravity of the situation

Newton discovers comedy

This, I suppose, is really a cartoon about cartoons. Animated Looney Tunes-style cartoons, that is.

It's odd that such a violent image as getting hit by an anvil, safe, piano etc, can be seen as the pinnacle of comedy. But, of course, we laugh because it's not us being hit by the anvil.
