How do you create a cartoon?

I am interested in getting into cartoon art and design.

Many artists use a combination of free hand drawing and computer graphics to create cartoons for both print and video. Tools are required for both and there are a variety of art supply stores and many free down-loadable programs available. A drawing tablet and scanner for your desktop will be essential either way.
