This reminds me of a discussion a coworker and I had.

Something about Flintstone vitamins and Fruity/Chocolate Pebbles, and how kids today have no clue what The Flinstones are. :waving cane and screaming at kids to get off my lawn:

Becks, try Youtube for specific cartoons. If you can remember the names that is.

Some good ones to get started are Duck Amuck, Robin Hood Daffy, Drip-Along Daffy, High-Diving Hare, Show Biz Bugs, Rabbit Fire, Rabbit Seasoning and Duck, Rabbit, Duck!

Oh and don't forget the opera ones: Rabbit of Seville and What's Opera Doc?

at least now they do not chop them up as to cut out the "violent" parts like they did in the 80' and 90's. that was a sad time for me to see such classics literally mutilated.

I want MORE Road Runner-Willie Coyotoe and Slappy Squirrel NOW

Seriously?

Maybe that's why when Boomerang had a Looney Toons Marathon the other month they seemed more violent to me

(I grew up in the late 80's early 90's, born in 1984)

Great idea, but I have dialup, so it takes longer for the videos to load than it takes me to watch them.

The late 40s - early 50s were the best.

Whenever something goes wrong, my kids and I say, "I shoulda made that left toin at Al ba koi kee."

"Hillbilly Hare" has long been a favorite in my family; that's the one where Bugs is calling the square dance, and he has the two guys beating the crap out of each other. We also loved (and I still love) the cartoons with Marc Anthony (yes, that's how they spell it in the cartoons) and Pussyfoot. Then there's the really weird one set to Ride of the Valkyries: "Kill da wabbit.... kill da wabbit..."

I was just teasing Other Half about how he has been Daffy Duck lately.

His response?

HEY! I resemble that remark!

I was bummed when they stopped showing Speedy Gonzales cartoons when they were still airing Looney Tunes. I always liked Speedy.

One of my favorite toons is and always will be Feed the Kitty. Chuck Jones, I believe. The one with Marc Anthony, the giant scary bulldog who adopts Pussyfoot, the sweet little blue-eyed kitten and tries to hide her from his Master.

The famous Cookie scene that was referenced heavily in Monsters Inc. *flutter*

Of course, being the whackjob romantic I am, I'm convinced the Road Runner is female and flirting. ^^;;

*squees*

Definitely one of my favourites. So is anything with Bugs and Daffy, and anything with Pepe LePew.

You know she'd love him if not for the smell.

She did at the end of one of them. But she had fallen into a river, lost her stripe and looked so bedraggled that Pepe ran.

What's Opera, Doc is probably my favorite.
"Yes, 'Magic Helmet!' And I'll give you a SAM-plllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllle!"

"Would you like to shoot me now or wait until you get home?"
"Shoot him now! Shoot him now!"
"You keep outta this! He doesn't have to shoot you now!"
"He does so have to shoot me now! I demand that you shoot me now!"

"Don't you know, Doc? It's Baseball season!"

"I will love him and pet him and name him George"

From many Daffy cartoons
"Down, Down, Down, mine mine mine, back back back"

Actually, it was a barrel of water. He fell into a pail of blue paint.

For Scent-imental Reasons. ^^

YES! What's Opera Doc is my favorite Bugs cartoon!

When we read the libretto for Wagner's Ring Cycle, during the class discussion someone finally broke out, "Kill the wabbit, kill the wabbit!" :lol: I love Looney Tunes, best cartoons ever! And I highly doubt Spongebob references opera or John Steinbeck plays ("I will love him and pet him and call him George")

As long as the cartoons are not edited, the Looney Toons are about the best cartoons ever to have ink applied to celluloid.

When they edit Daffy getting shot or Wile E. walking away like an accordion, it looses something IMHO.

That said, the Chuck Jones era had some of the best cartoons ever made - they appeal to all ages. The kidlings laugh to the Big Fat Opera singer turning blue, and the adults get the verbal Leopold! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leopold_Stokowski) jokes. Well, Leopold might not work as well these days as he's been dead since '77.

The orchestra in Vancouver (the Vancouver Symphony?) used to put on a show where they played along to "The Rabbit of Seville" and the Wagner one, among others...


"Leopold!"

"Leopold?"

"Leopold!!!"

yup the "moral" police thought the cartoon violence was "TOOOOOO MUCH" for young minds and cut all of the mallet wacking, explosions, falling rocks to "prevent" them from learning violence from cartoons

what woudl they think of the M rated video games produced today? cartoons are tame comapred to that

long live Chuck Jones and Tex Avery two of the most brilliant cartoon writers/animators/directors EVER

Here's what season it really is. (http://www.ebaumsworld.com/video/watch/3786/) :devil:

Nevermind the watermark, I made that. :devil:
Also a tribute to Chuck Jones (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=1009358125866637429&ei=qmihSb7EGY_-qwKBvvHXDw&q=ham+on+wry&hl=en),
A video about Marc Antony & Pussyfoot (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-3569163865046943449&q=source%3A004460620727687998627&hl=en),
and my personal masterpiece, IMHO, a 9/11 tribute (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HunNlL_T_Qw).

Some of the cuts just made me go :wtf: especially with the whacking over the heads. One of the cartoons I think..."Show Biz Bugs" (the one where Daffy does the suicide act) was cut so severely that we didn't get to see Daffy's suicide act. That was a little more understandable except for one question...where the heck do you get Uranium-238? In Australia, that cartoon only cut out the part where Daffy drinks the gasoline, but they left in everything else.

Oh yes, absolute classic :lol:

And guys, check out youtube for these cartoons. The Leopold one mentioned a few times is called "Long-Haired Hare" but is a big hard to find. I'm trying to find the one where Foghorn Leghorn is captured and forced to cross-dress.

Heh, Toon Heads. Actually, I always liked the one about the line and the dot.

A Romance in Lower Mathematics.

If cartoons taught me anything, it's that you'll never fall if you don't look down.

Also, a rabbit in lipstick can outwit any halfwit.

Ah, I love the classics, those are the only cartoons besides King of the Hill and The Simpsons that my dad would watch with me and my sisters. The Sylvester, Tweety and Granny cartoons were my favorite! Bugs and Daffy too. Heh,heh heh what a maroon!! :lol:
