Last time, we collected more than 90 cartoon landscapes for your projects. Continuing with the topic, we’ve once again gone on a hunt to set up a huge collection of versatile cartoon background images free for personal and commercial use. This time, we added interior backgrounds, space stations, underwater scenes, abstract cartoon backgrounds for PowerPoint presentations, and even cute cartoon patterns, so there is indeed something for any project you can think of.

We separated this diversified collection of quality free cartoon backgrounds into 5 categories. If you’re looking for something specific, use the titles from the overview below to fast-travel into the section of your choice.
