Hello Stefan!
Thank you for this remarkable description of how you used SignPuddle searching software to figure out what this cartoon says in Brazilian Sign Language...

SignWriting List members….As you can see by this demonstration that Stefan shows below, if you see a sign from another sign language you do not understand, you can “Search by Symbols” within that SignPuddle dictionary for that sign language, and figure out the word-meaning by finding the sign by the SignWriting symbols…and then looking up the corresponding spoken language word in Google translate to find the meaning -

Thank you for explaining this Stefan!

AND please FaceTime me or Skype me now - I have time if you do ;-)

Val ;-)

Hi Valerie, Cherie and SW-list members .. 
I agree ... SW within cartoons is a funy and perhaps successful way to introduce SignWriting to the public. 
I looked at this cartoon very carefully and ..just as Cherie mentioned ... no it is not ASL is Libras and I do not know Libras ... 
I was eager to find my way to understand the written text ... 
Sign by sign I looked at the “Search by symbol”   feature  of SignPuddle ... mh .. I found most of the signs in the Brazilian SignPuddle this way ... but since I do not understand Portugese as well I asked Google-Translator for help ..ha and in the end I felt successfull. 
Well ... almost ... ;-(
When I searched for the original cartoon with the writing in English it allowed a quite better undrestanding... Nevertheless a  wonderful idea
All best
