Many of his cartoons are very well-known, such as the ones featuring what you say to a dog, what a dog hears, and the real reason dinosaurs became extinct.
Others may be new treasures that you'll discover in his books or by searching on the internet. My personal favorite way to enjoy Larson's work is with a day-by-day calendar.
