joke cartoon

– a caricature, a funny drawing, not having a semantic content (subtext). The term “oscilla” widely used in the Soviet times for drawings published in the media, reflects the trend towards the selection of toothless stories far from social and political direction.

Nevertheless, since that time, caricaturists have managed to lay down a profound meaning in unsophisticated subjects, a subtext that is not read by the Soviet censorship. Newspapers and periodicals of the thaw, such as Literaturnaya Gazeta, Komsomolskaya Pravda, Moskovsky Komsomolets, and Smena magazine published young authors, bearers of new trends in the cartoon, giving a powerful impetus to the emergence of outstanding world-famous masters of the national cartoon , such as Sergei Tyunin, Oleg Tesler, Mikhail Zlatkovsky, Victor Bogorad, Yuri Kosobukin.
