Ready For Some Silly Humor? A Tombats Flash cartoon

characters from some of Tom Murphy’s tombats series dingbat fonts -’ve always enjoyed the lighthearted silly humor of Tom Murphy’s dingbat fonts. Visiting Tom’s weblog over the weekend I was delighted to find a link to a Flash cartoon using the Tombats 6 dingbat font. The cartoon’s light humor is just like the entire series of Tom’s Tombats.

Tom Murphy also just released Tombats 7 a few weeks ago, too.

So if you’re up for something silly and fun, check out what i like, by Elliot Negelev. Watch out for the Teepee scene.
