78 Literary Pun Cartoons

Love books but don't have the time to read? Why not just look at a cartoon loosely based on a book instead!

In this pun on The Godfather and Cinderella's Fairy Godmother, we see Marlon Brando as Don Vito Corleone but with fairy wings and a wand telling Cinderella he's gonna make her an offer she can't refuse.
There's a lot more murder in this version of Cinderella.
In this pun on writer's block, Edgar Allan Poe stands on a neighborhood block and proclaims that his house is on this street.
Writer's block can be taxing (property taxing, that is).
In this pun on the four elements - and in reference to Avatar the Last Airbender - we see the four elements of Jane: Jane Fire, Jane Water, Jane Earth, and Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre
The elements, as explained by Charlotte Bronte
In this pun on Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath, we see a multitude of fruits demonstrating the seven deadly sins - strawberries of pride, apples of envy, watermelon of gluttony, blueberries of greed, banana of sloth, pears of lust.
If only Steinbeck were alive to write about the other sins of the produce aisle...
Three owls read punny book titles for summer reading - "Eat Prey Love" (Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat Pray Love), "Who Hoo the Bell Tolls" (For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway), and "How to CATCH 22 Mice per night" (Catch 22 by Joseph Heller)
Hoo's ready for summer reading?
The Da Vinci Building Code is a pun on the Dan Brown novel. Professor Langdon points at a painting of the Vitruvian Man and exclaims, "Aha! His arms must be pointing to where the wiring needs to go!"
You get approval for any new construction only if Mona Lisa smiles.
An old-timey woman leaves a voicemail on a pay phone, saying "Ishmael, it's your mother. I don't know why you keep letting my calls go to voicemail, but please, Call me Ishmael!" Herman Melville, writer of Moby Dick, has a eureka moment.
This is probably historically accurate.
In this pun on Herman Melville's Moby Dick and a mobius strip, we see a mobius strip made up of the white whale connected to Captain Ahab's ship, The Pequod.
A non-orientable, seemingly infinite novel
In this play on Betty Smith's novel A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, we see it and four of its sequels about the five boroughs of New York City: A Bush Grows in Queens, A Flower Grows in the Bronx, A Shrub Grows in Manhattan, A Succulent Grows in Staten Island
Book sequels we've been waiting for
In this pun on C.S. Lewis' book The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, a Lion and a Witch argue about an Ikea wardrobe.
This whole book is just about arguments at IKEA, right?
