Do you mean cartoons that make science-related jokes or cartoons like the one you posted that explain science concepts?

Anybody remember the 'Tennessee-Tuxedo' cartoon series from the 1960s (LINK)?

Tennessee Tuxedo and friend Chumley would escape the confines of the zoo to visit a 'Mr. Whoopee' a.k.a. the man with all of the answers. Mr. Whoopee's lectures were illustrated and animated on the Three-Dimensional Blackboard (3DBB for short). Most lectures focused on applied sciences (one lecture was devoted to art i.e., sculpture).

The (3DBB) resembles today's smart tablets; yet in the cartoon series, the (3DBB) could be stretched and resized. Today's smart tablets are not (yet) designed to be physically resized.

Back when astronauts were still cheap, expendable test pilots, one of them was assigned to an experimental jet hybridized with rocket fuel. It started blowing chunks right away and the pilot barely got it back under control to return to base. One of the engineers got on the radio to ask him to try the rocket again before landing.
