This article explores representations of domestic violence in Andy Capp cartoons published in the Daily Mirror. Created in 1957, the Capp cartoons were designed to humorously portray working-class married life in North East England. The cartoons reflected and perpetuated anachronistic stereotypes surrounding working-class masculinity, working-class femininity, and North East England. The article considers the role of humor and cartoons in representations of domestic violence as well as the social realities of Britain in the 1950s and 1960s. Despite attempts to scale back the violence in the cartoons Andy Capp continued to be associated, in the popular imagination, with domestic violence.
