Hello samantharandy-ga,

Thank-you for your question.

It is notoriously difficult to track down Far Side cartoons due to
their copyright being very strictly protected.

"It is difficult to find many Far Side cartoons online since Larson
(and/or his publishers and lawyers) have been very effective at
persuading people to not infringe on his copyright. There is a widely
distributed letter online, attributed to Gary Larson, in which he
explains the "emotional cost" to him of people displaying his cartoons
on their websites, and asks them to stop doing so."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Far_Side#Online

Lukily we can answer your question as Gary Larson has published a
complete catalogue of Far Side cartoons.  It is available here:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0740721135/

the toons!! Oh well, maybe I'll get a good comment out there??

Thank you from Canada....go Olympic Team go!!!

the cartoon your looking for is not a Far side ; it's a Herman cartoon
by Jim Unger and was first published in 1985.  Where you can get a
copy I don,t know.  It has been a favorite of mine since it was first
published.  I still have a laminated copy.  There are Herman
collection books .
