This target population comprised all pupils in Junior Private and public schools in Bariga Area of Lagos State. One hundred and Fifteen (150) respondents (both male and female) were randomly selected as sample for this study but at the end only One hundred questionnaires were retrieved. A structured questionnaire was constructed and administered on the respondents for data collection. The data were analyzed using percentages, frequency distribution tables. The research questions formulated were tested using mean and standard deviation while the null hypotheses 1 – 2 were tested using chi-square (X2). The T-test was used to test hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The findings showed cartoons (animation) significantly influenced pupils’ academic performance. The study recommended that the teaching-learning process should employ instructional cartoons in the educational activities and discourage rote learning. Cartoons should not be used only in the classroom but the pupils also should be encouraged to think and discuss about the subjects by hanging out the cartoons drawn by the pupils on the class and school board. Educational technologists should employ cartoon strip for self-study not only in the fine arts but in other subject areas.
