The Cognitive and Affective Theory of Mind Cartoon task (CAToon) is designed to measure affective and cognitive Theory of Mind (ToM) using cartoon stories. The task has an entertaining and timely design understandable and engaging for children as well as for adults.

The task consists of 30 cartoon stories, representing three conditions (two experimental conditions targeting affective ToM (AT) and cognitive ToM (CT) and a control condition targeting physical causality (PC)). Each condition comprises 10 stories of similar visual complexity (i.e. backgrounds were matched across conditions).

Three additional stories (one per condition) are available for practice purposes.
