Pak Tuntung is the cartoon strip featured in Harian Analisa, the popular local newspaper in my hometown. It is quite a famous cartoon strip, which portrays the current affairs and social issues revolves around the community. It has been around for nearly as long as the age of the newspaper itself, which is around 30 years now. The main character is Pak Tuntung, which originally reflects the life
of the original cartoonist, which came from a town called Tuntungan.
Today, I spotted a difference. The cartoon doesn’t look as original as it used to be. Maybe the original cartoonist is sick, or has retired. I dunno. And today’s Pak Tuntung looks weird to me. The original one looks cuter and funnier. Hopefully the original cartoonist will come back and draw more, or the new cartoonist can improve his/her work and bring back the originality.
