Cartoon 12 is a bitmap font designed by Apple programmer Steve Capps for the Mac game Through the Looking Glass (1984). Not officially released, but circulated on shareware CDs by 1986. A converted version was included in the DOS version of DeluxePaint II (1988) by Electronic Arts, where it was known as Comix. Spotted in many 1990s video games in both arcades and home consoles, most famously Mortal Kombat. [Boisclair (codeman38)]
