Bob Mankoff, in How About Never – Is Never Good for You?: My Life in Cartoons (2014, p. 189), refers to “the evolution cartoon cliché” and gives four examples on pp. 190-1. Here are Gerberg’s entries (also Harry Bliss, #2 in my posting on him in 5/18/14).

On Gerberg from Wikipedia:

Gerberg has also created commissioned cartoons and humorous writings for [a number of corporations].

He has written, edited and/or illustrated over 40 books. They include Cartooning: The Art and the Business [and collections of topical cartoons]
