- History of the Turkey Cartoon
The history of the Turkey Cartoon can be traced back to 1604, when a Dutch artist named Pieter Bruegel created a painting called The Triumph of Death over Life. In the painting, a skeletal donkey is carrying a rider on its back, who is holding a spear pointing at the donkey’s head. The rider represents death, and the donkey is representing life.
Since then, the Turkey Cartoon has become an iconic image in American culture. It can be found in newspapers and magazines all over the country, and it has even been used in advertising campaigns. In 1927, Forbes magazine published an article entitled “Why The Turkey Is America’s National Bird”. The article argued that the turkey was chosen as America’s national bird because it is “an animal that symbolizes both strength and fertility.”
The Turkey Cartoon has also been used as a symbol for different things over the years. For example, during World War I, the cartoon was used to promote recruitment efforts among American soldiers. And in 1980, President Jimmy Carter used a cartoon turkey to campaign for Election Day.
The Turkey Cartoon is one of America’s most popular symbols, and it is often used to promote different causes. So next time you see a turkey being depicted in a satirical fashion on TV or in an advertisement, remember its history and why it continues to be such an important figure in American culture
