The cartoonist to which you refer is the wonderful Gary Larson. He
has published a number of books containing collections of his work. I
know the cartoon to which you refer and I am sure that you can locate
it in one of those collections.

By the way, he has retired and I will certainly miss his wit which I
use to enliven my classes with transparencies of his 'toons' of nutty
scientists of all stripes.
