Introduction to The Universal Sherlock Holmes

Volume 4 of The Universal Sherlock Holmes


This part contains a descriptive list of cartoons, comic books and comic strips, and even some jokes. Also included are humorous illustrations, as well as cartoons about Conan Doyle. Because many cartoons and comic strips are syndicated or reprinted, whenever possible I have named the newspaper in which they originally appeared.

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson have been depicted in an astonishing variety of comic forms. Some cartoons are innocent humor; others, such as editorial cartoons, are incisive commentaries on the political or social scene of the day. The latter include cartoons about Theodore Roosevelt, Harry S(herlock) Truman, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Nelson Rockefeller, Jimmy Carter, and Ronald Reagan. Among the foreign leaders portrayed are Joseph Stalin, Willem Drees, Harold Macmillan, Harold Wilson, Pierre Trudeau, and Yassir Arafat.

There are at least two instances of a female "Sherlock Holmes" in comic strips -- Curlilock Ohms and Super Girl Sandra. Also, British politician Barbara Castle has been depicted as the detective.

Sparked perhaps by Billy Wilder's film, The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (1970), several pornographic cartoons and comic strips have appeared in magazines like Penthouse and Playboy. Holmes not only would be enraged if he saw them, but, most likely, would send a swarm of killer bees after the cartoonists, particularly one whose name is also, unfortunately, Holmes (hopefully, a pseudonym!).

One of the most amusing features of these cartoons and comics is the variations on the names of Holmes and Watson. Examples are: Shamrock Bones, Shylock Bones and Dr. What'sup, Spylot Bones, Beerlock Foams, Surelock Grones, Hawkshaw and Watso, Sherlock Hoax and Dr. Puton, Hemlock Holmes, Ozone Holmes, Shedlock Holmes, Shelook Holmes, Chubblock Homes, Hancock Homes, Padlock Homes and Dr. Watsis, Sherlock Go Homes and Wats-in, Merlock Jones, Sheerluck Jones, Sheerluck and Dr. Watsup, Hairlock Shomes, Shermlock Shomes and Dr. Whatsit, Sheerflop Soames and Bottson, Spurlock and Watkins. The names seem endless.

In order to understand a cartoon it is necessary to read the caption (title) first and then the description. Sometimes it is difficult to describe cartoons and comic strips briefly so that they can be easily visualized and understood. They are, of course, meant to be seen as well as read. Still, I have tried, and I hope there is much in this unique listing to interest and amuse readers.

An illustrated bibliography entitled "The Comic Life of Sherlock Holmes" appeared in the November-December 1975 issue of The American Book Collector.

Each issue of The Baker Street Journal now features cartoons by Scott Bond, Lee Eric Shackleford, and Jeff Decker -- all outstanding Sherlockian cartoonists and illustrators. Their cartoons are far too numerous to include in this listing. Other Sherlock Holmes periodicals also contain cartoons and humorous illustrations of Holmes and Watson.

The comic books and comic strips are listed together by the names of the writers and illustrators rather than by the titles. Charlotte A. Erickson has compiled and published a valuable bibliography, with comments, entitled Sherlock Holmes in the Comic Books. The bibliography is kept up to date with quarterly supplements. She is the authority on Holmes comic books. Her address is: 1029 Judson Drive, Mountain View, CA 94040-2310.

The last numbered item in this bibliography is a booklet entitled The Totally Tasteless Jokes of Moriarty, compiled and published by The Voices of the Whispering Knights. And perhaps some of these "tasteless jokes" should only be whispered. Thus, the bibliography has gone from the sublime (The Sacred Writings) to the ridiculous (Jokes).
