Sherman Lagoon's Jim Toomey has new cartoons online now

Jim Toomey has done animated public service announcements sponsored by Pew Trust. From their press release:

"Ocean governance. Even policy experts will admit it sounds pretty boring. But now those of us with less ocean savvy are in luck. 


The Pew Charitable Trusts has joined forces with cartoonist Jim Toomey—whose daily comic strip, Sherman's Lagoon, is syndicated in more than 250 newspapers in the United States—to animate terms like "ocean governance" and nine others that can sometimes be confusing.


And after hundreds of hours spent by Jim Toomey "Cartoon Crash Course" is live. The hope was to offer a fun way to engage our audiences about important marine topics that needed explaining.


You can watch all 10 new short films here:


We hope you check out these humorous cartoons and come away with a better, more animated understanding of what it means to take care of our oceans."
