This chapter aims to explore the remarkable turnaround in Yugoslav cartoons in the pivotal years of 1948–1952, when conflicts within the COMINFORM produced a reorientation of criticism away from America and the West and towards the Soviet Union and Eastern bloc. The chapter focuses on the cartoons published in the Belgrade journal Jez (Hedgehog), in all their Manichean, schematic, even vulgar form. Discourses on ‘western imperialism’ were used as a basis for the new, anti-Soviet cartooning, as they provided ready-made templates for the criticism of Yugoslavia’s external enemies. It is interesting to note that the heaviest criticism was in many cases reserved not for the USSR itself, but for Yugoslavia’s Communist neighbours in Bulgaria and Albania – displaying a complexity and multi-polarity of thought which has seldom been recognised, in a period often characterised solely as a bipolar East/West dichotomy.
