Well...

Since the deck is not really used except as a prop - you could just send them through the lazer printer - who cares how durable the cards are at that point

That is what I did, just put them trough my laser printer and added a finish to fix it a little bit. Not really durable if you would scratch with your finger nail but it works for me as cajmagic said.

Fart-toon is no longer available. From what I understand, they only printed a limited number of these decks and have issued no more.


Unfortunately it does live on in the seedy pirate copy underworld here in Hong Kong. It is printed on a non-descript card back and is marketed as Cartoon Deck - but is the exact copy of Fart-toon - stickman, taco, fart and all! Although I haven't bought one, it retails for HK$60-80 (which is around US$10).

I'm posting this not out of pride but shame that my country Hong Kong is guilty of such copyright infringement. I think the deck is actually manufactured in China but can't be sure.

If I had to vote, I'd go with the original.

I have all 3 (CARDTOON 1, CARDTOON 2, FART-TOON). I (and my audience) loves all of them. Obviously, the FART-TOON has to be for selected audiences, although nowadays, children of 7 or 8 years old find much humor in it and parents are laughing with them. I'd say you still need to know your audience.

I once worked in an all-inclusive hotel in the carribean and tabled-hopped for regular guests there at dinner time. Many saw CARDTOON 1 and asked to see him again. . . You can do the same effect, or change the deck to either of the 2 other decks. They thought my assistant, "Herbie", had many acts. It builds character to "Herbie" and I Smile

They loved the variety!!!

This is great for Magicians performing on cruises or wherever you will be seeing regular guests day after day.

Card-Toon (the original) gets my vote. It has more of that Magic feel to it with the hat rather than a cannon.

I have both and prefer Cardtoon 1. I just like the whole 'pulling the card out of a hat' thing:)

In this genre, what do you guys think of the Tenyo Magic effect, "Animation Card?"

I like Cardtoon 1 and Toony Angel but my wife and kids like Cardtoon 2 the best. Everyone is different.

Does anyone know how to put Cardtoon 1 back in order? I recently dropped the deck and now I'm having some trouble putting it back. I read on the instruction that to "reset simple put the Cardtoon deck in new deck order." Well, a new deck order is with deck face up, it's 13 Spades, 13 Diamonds, 13 Clubs and the last group is 13 Hearts. When I put this order to Cardtoon 1, it's not in the original order as the effect is wrong.

Can the owners of Cardtoon 1 please help? Thanks.

where can I get those and is there a clip of it or can someone of you shot a demo of them?
does anyone know if fartoon can still be purchased somewhere?
and what about the "animator" I would like to see a demo too, and where can this be purchased from?

evolve: did you watched out to not only put them back in the right suit, also the right numbers? ace-king, ace-king, king-ace, king -ace?

I have had tremendous success with Card Toon for quite some time.
And in sharing the joy that I get when performing it, I recently recommended this particular effect to a magician who was new to children's magic.
The feedback was as best as one could hope for.
"Come Back" the children said ... "Come Back"
*Smiles from ear to ear* ... EVERYWHERE!!!
So much happiness.

I own Cardtoon 1 and I would love to create a more personal version. Anybody with experience on printing on cards? So far I'm using a stick figure animation tool along with Photoshop. Any suggestions on other software?

You can use Flash to create an animation (52 frames). Then you can export the animation to single frames. After that you could print them on cards.

(OK, if you have problems regarding the last point, get in contact to me.)

Both Cardtoon 1 and 2 got great reactions from my audiences, so I don't think there's much difference between them.

I have the Harkey book and you are right about what is in his book. I don't want to say anything bad about Harlan though. I don't know all of the dates who came up with what etc... It is a goodie as well.

The Tenyo version with the fairy gets my vote.

But I think this thread is just showing that which one you like has more to do with your personality and performing style than anything inherently better or worse about each version.

Except Fart-toon. That one just stinks.
