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!

A computer guy reads the Stephen King novel "IT." It is clear he thought it was called I.T. from Information Technology, and not in fact, a spooky book about a clown named Pennywise.
Nothing is scarier than having to ask people if they tried rebooting their computers.
In this pun on J.D. Salinger's novel Catcher in the Rye, we see three baseball players (a catcher, a pitcher, and a third baseman) standing in three different types of bagel (rye, everything, and cinnamon raisin).
The only books I care about are about baseball players in bagels, and if you disagree, you're probably a phony.
In this pun on Chick Lit, we see 6 classics of literature rewritten with chicken puns - Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men),Heminway's Old Man and the Sea, Melville's Moby Dick, Burgess' A Clockwork Orange, Faulkner's As I Lay Dying, & Twain's Huckleberry Finn

In this pun on the fairy tale Puss in Boots, an octopus wears eight different boots.
My favorite fairy tale!
In this pun on Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, Ebenezer Scrooge meets the ghost of Christmas Present, which is just the ghost of a Christmas present.
Christmas is over, so it's the perfect time for a Christmas cartoon!
In this pun on George Orwell's dystopian novel Animal Farm, we see several animals line up at a pharmacy while the cat pharmacist tells them, "I'm sorry, your insurance doesn't cover that."
A frightening dystopian tale
In this pun on Robert Louis Stevenson's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hide, we see Dr. Jekyll, an upstanding scientist, and Mr. Hide-and-Seek, a guy hiding behind a dresser, playing hide and seek.
A chilling tale about a scientist who is very bad at playing children's games.
In this pun on the phrase "Muad'Dib" (which arguably means messiah in Frank Herbert's Dune), we see Paul Atreides, the muad'dib, next to a cow, who is the Moo- a-dib.
Obviously his mother would be names Lady Bessy-ca
In this pun on fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk, we see Jack and the Beanstalker. Jack sits on a bench reading a book "So... you think a legume is following you" as a kidney bean who is clearly stalking him watches through binoculars.
I personally don’t mind it when kidney beans become obsessed with me.
In this pun on the Dumas novel The Count of Monte Cristo, we see the count of Monte Cristos - a deli guy counting out five plates of monte cristo sandwiches.
A thrilling tale of hope, justice, vengeance, and clogged arteries
