1. 音译“卡通 ”。
来自词根cart, 卡片，词源同card, chart. -oon, 大词后缀。原指在硬纸板上的素描画。
- cartoon:  Cartoon comes via French carton from Italian cartone, which meant literally ‘strong heavy paper, pasteboard’ (it was a derivative of carta ‘paper’, which came from Latin charta, source also of English card, carton, chart, and charter). Its meaning was in due course transferred to the preliminary sketches made by artists on such paper, the original and for nearly two centuries the only sense of the word in English; ‘But the sight best pleased me was the cartoons by Raphael, which are far beyond all the paintings I ever saw’, Hatton family correspondence, 1697.
Its application to comic drawings in newspapers and magazines began in the 1840s.
