We learned something interesting from An Inconvenient Truth.  We've never seen a cartoon so funny about global warming.

It's from Futurama's Crimes of the Hot episode, with the cartoon None like it Hot.  Here's an example of treating symptoms while ignoring the cause.

Here's the transcript: It's only two minutes long.

  • Opening scene: A girl exits a building with an ice cream cone.  It melts and disappears in a flash.  A man approaches while chuckling as she starts crying.
  • Man: You're probably wondering why your ice cream went away. Well, Suzy, the culprit isn't foreigners. It's global warming.
  • Suzy: Gwoble wappo?
  • Man: Yea(?) Meet Mister Sun Beam. He comes all the way from the sun to visit the Earth. (A man made of fire strolls through space toward earth)
  • Sun Beam: Hello Earth - Just popping in to brighten your day. [singing] La la la...And now I'll be on my way! (He's stopped by a green vapour-thug)
  • Thug: Not so fast Sun Beam. We are Greenhouse Gases; you ain't goin' nowhere. (Several thugs join in and start beating Sun Beam unconscious)

  • Sun Beam: [moans] Oh God! It hurts.
  • Man: Pretty soon Earth is chalk full of sun Beams, their rotting corpses heating our atmosphere. (A stack of dead Sun Beam figures lies on the ground as the thugs laugh evilly)
  • Suzy: How do we get wid of de gweenhouse gwasses? (In the classroom, she's sitting in a student's desk.)
  • Man: Fortunately, our handsome-est politicians came up with a cheap (last minute) way to combat global warming. 
  • Ever since 2063 we simply drop a giant ice cube into the ocean, every now and then. (An ice block is released into the ocean by a space ship)
  • Suzy: Just like Daddy puts in his dwink every morning...and den he gets mad.
  • Man: [Continuing] Of course, since the Green House Gases are still building up, it takes more & more ice each time. Thus solving the problem once and for all. (Same space ship, bigger ice block)
  • Suzy: But...Man: ONCE AND FOR ALL!I guess you had to be there.  Other contemporary cartoons that deal with global warming in a humorous way include The Simpsons, Family Guy, Spongebob Squarepants, etc.

It's all in good fun!  Also, live action comedy tackles the subject.  Take a look at this - viewer discretion advised:

Finally, if you like Sarah Silverman's off-beat comedy, "A Very Convenient Truth" is a short parody of An Inconvenient Truth. 

Not exactly global warming cartoons, but still hilarious.  You can find it online too; it's worth a look.  It shows that not everyone agrees global warming is a bad thing.  A few Canadians are even looking forward to it.
