What Is a Cartoon?

Could you define the term cartoon? Before providing some examples, what exactly is a cartoon? According to Merriam-Webster:

“Cartoon is a word that shows us a clear progression in meanings from the concrete to the abstract in several stages. Currently, we most frequently use cartoon to mean ‘a humorous drawing,’ ‘comic strip,’ or ‘animated film or TV show.’ But its origins in English begin with fine arts. Cartoon first designated ‘a design, drawing, or painting made by an artist as a model for the finished work.’However, in the 1600s, cartoon began in Italian as the word for the material on which a drawing was made. Then, it then became the word for the drawing itself. Next, it came to mean a comic drawing, a series of drawings, or animation. Te use of cartoon to mean ‘a humorous drawing’ began in the 1800s. The final stage in this progression is a metaphorical use meaning ‘caricature.'”
