The first label I have seen that took all its releases from the same year – 1977 (with three exceptions). Actual release date may have been later.
The number font looks like it was copied off of Contraband but is a bit different:
The artist who drew these cartoon figures has been identified as Tanioka Taiji.

The release numbers may have been randomly assigned but I have used them anyway to help sort this list.
The label may have had plans to call itself Vinyl Man Records – that name can be found on the back of the Aerosmith release and this and the BRITISH SUPER SHOW ’69 LP start with “VM”, however this idea seems to have been dropped soon after.
One of the characteristics of the Cartoon label is that while some bootleg labels included too little music sometimes, Cartoon often included as many songs as technically possible – and then some – on their single LP releases, with some LP sides stretching to over 33 minutes of music. Obviously, double albums or two volume single discs were not something they wanted to produce.
