About the Holiday

Cartoonist Against Crime Day honors the cartoonist, characters and the illustrations that have promoted the cause of crime prevention. Probably the best known is McGruff the Crime Dog who wants to "take a bite out of crime". We weren't able to find any other characters dedicated to the crime prevention cause, though, there are many individual comic strips and illustrations that have periodically chipped in to take up the cause.

Honorable mention also goes out to Woodsy Owl, Smokey the Bear and Mr. Yuk, who while not explicitly focused on crime prevention, were very memorable public service cartoon characters that made a difference for the better.
