Are you Looney Tunes? :D  LOL just kidding

What did you think of the 90s spin-off "Tiny Toon Adventures"?  I myself enjoyed it, with the exception of the Myra character.  She got so annoying, I wanted to bitch slap her ;D

What is your favorite Disney "classic" cartoon? I have many of them - including Silly Symphonies and the like..

I've been collecting the Looney Tunes Golden Collection and Disney Treasures (the tins)...and the more I watch, the more I admire the craft of animation in addition to the inner child thrills.

Don't you hate those "PC" disclaimers they inject into many of these collections, with Whoopi Goldberg and Leonard Maltin? Annoying as hell.

1. Though I like most of them, I would say Daffy.

2. The red monster's name is Gossamer.


3. I enjoy cartoons that feature futuristic stuff, though a bit laughable now since it's now 2007 like that "Smell o Vision" would replace television, which stated in "Old Grey Hare".

Car of Tomorrow", which hardly seen anymore, from MGM is one I remember.



4. "Tiny Toon Adventures" was one of my favorites as a kid in the 1990's. In retrospect, they stayed true to the classics and even have cameos of Bugs, Daffy, etc. (usually as teachers). I have two video tapes, one with music videos featuring 60's pop songs and two songs from They Might Be Giants and another where Plucky & Hampton falls to the center to the earth and meet gremlins (similar to the one from "Falling Hare")


5. As for Disney, I like many featuring Mickey,Donald, & Goofy and also Donald Duck.

Some Silly Symphonies and a few solo Mickey Mouse cartoons

"The Band Concert"
"On Ice"
"Thru The Mirror"
"Brave Little Tailor"
"Mickey's Trailer"
"Lonesome Ghosts"
"Moose Hunters"
"Donald Steps Out"
"Hockey Champion"
"Good Time For A Dime"
"Good Scouts"
"Der Fuehrer's Face"
"Fall Out, Fall In"
"The Vanishing Private"
"Donald's Crime"
"Donald's Double Trouble"
"Three For Breakfast"
"Donald's Dilemma"
"Out Of Scale"
"Two Chips & A Miss"
"Pluto's Judgement Day"
"Pantry Pirate"
"Goofy Gymnastics"
"How To Be A Sailor"
"Crazy With The Heat"
"Three Little Pigs"
"Tortoise and the Hare"
"Toby Tortoise Returns"
"Peculiar Penguins"
"Elmer Elephant"



6. The disclaimers are annoying, though most could be skipped by pressing the "menu" button.


Sometimes, the can't be skipped like the intros on the Disney Treasure discs. Especuially the "Vault" section.

Though fortunately Warner Bros. got rid  of Whoopi (only appeared on the third volume of "Looney Tunes Golden Collection"), but replaced her with a written disclaimer that only appears for a few seconds.

Atleast they don't have trailers of upcoming movies or DVDs in the beginning.

Small favors, yes... :)

The Disney  Rarities collection is fascinating...it includes a few very rare Alice comedies and other longer form cartoons in styles that you would not expect from the Disney company, where they would try stop-motion animation and very impressionistic styles of graphics.

And there was the House of Tomorrow, too. Both directed by Tex Avery...Avery's MGM films need to be presented in a DVD set!

Loved that show too. I think their video for "Istanbul Not Constantinople" was better than the official TMBG video! 8) Tiny Toons led to the even more incredible Animaniacs! Did you ever see the short-lived Hysteria from the same crew?

I don't think I've watched "Hysteria" since I stopped watching cartoons for some reason around 1996.  "Animaniacs" was also funny, though the Chicken Boo was something they should've done once. I remember an episode where they parodied "Beauty & The Beast" with Taz and how The Brain would try to take over the world.

Why did Sylvester and Daffy have speech impediments?

Because a duck and a cat lispsing is considered funny. Atleast Daffy's a bit clearer than Donald.  :D

Off the top of my head, maybe it was a counterpoint to the racist stereotype of the slow Mexican-American worker. (Notice many of those cartoons feature slow-talking, slow-walking rodents). I've never been a big fan of the series myself, and not so sure Speedy Gonzales deserves an entire disc in the Golden Collection #4. ???

I like Speedy Gonzales, though the latter 60's  shouldn't be on there. Especially that one of the lame cartoons with Speedy & Daffy was included.
They might as well add the later 60's Road Runners on the second volume  ::)


As a hispanic, I don't find him offensive. Not to mention stereotypes were (still are in different forms) commonplace and not just hispanics, African Americans, Asians.

Like Pepe Le Pew is a French stereotype that smells and chases cats with stripes on their backs and Yosemite Sam & Foghorn Leghorn are southern stereotypes.

Not to mention celebrities like Clark Gable having big ears or Frank Sinatra being very thin.

You ever had a job where you worked with someone who, for some weird reason, you butted heads with constantly while you were at work (to the point to where you wanted to kill them), but once you got off work, you got along with them just fine (and even might have gone out and had a few beers with after you got off work)?

About 10 years ago I used to work on an assembly line at a Kawasaki plant in Lincoln, NE, and there was this guy, who, for some reason, totally rubbed me the wrong way while we were at work and we'd get to the point of yelling at each other, but once we got off work we got along great.
  In hindsight, it was probably me more than him, he was actually a pretty good guy and I was a lot more thin-skinned and let a lot more stuff get to me back then.

<------------Sort of like this guy.  ;)

Then one day I saw a Sam Sheepdog/Ralph Wolf cartoon and realized how much it reminded me of my situation at work, and I thought it was the funniest damned thing. Ever since then the Sam & Ralph shorts have been my favorite Warner Bros. cartoons.

(I've always wished I could've met some of the old guys from the Warner Bros. cartoon studios just so I could ask them which guys they worked with were the inspiration for Sam and Ralph.  ;D)

"Loonatics Unleashed"

It's cheesy, tries too hard to be funny, and the original Looney Tunes directors, animators, Mel Blanc, etc. are rolling in their graves.


I've seen a few episodes and noticed that the futuristic superhero version of Coyote & Road Runner are in the same team.  ::)

Pepe Le Pew is now a villian in human form (not making this up) and Elmer Fudd (some villian who turns people into stone)  looks more like the sheriff from the far worse "Squidbillies".

In certain Looney Tunes episodes, they do a take off of  scenes where a 'narrator' finds funny situations based on a theme, like, 'here we see a wolf!' then the animal whistles at a girl, or this is a chicken and the bird might scream...

My question..why don't they list who the voice is of the narrator or anyone other than Mel Blanc..?
We know Mel didn't do the other announce voices!

I think he was an actual announcer of newsreels.

They didn't list voice actors and Mel Blanc wasn't credited until 1944 though others like Arthur Q. Bryan and Stan Freberg weren't.  Though Freberg was credited in "The Three Little Bops" in the later 1950's.

I'm not sure what was the reason, but voice credits weren't listed in other cartoons from other studios like Fleischer to Disney.  Maybe because Mel Blanc did the majority of the Looney Tunes characters.

He was the only one of the voice actors to contractually get on-screen credit. That's the only reason I can think of. Warner Bros. probably did it also just to brag, because they went out of their way to make sure Blanc stayed with them. He had worked with other cartoon studios before Warner bought him up (confirmed by Noel Blanc in a featurette on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection vol. 1).

I saw it rerunned on NickToons a couple years ago, but there's no new episodes. It doesn't have the same impact as Animaniacs did to inspire DVD release, even though Animaniacs certainly does owe a lot to TTA. It certainly wouldn't hurt to see TTA on DVD, too!

1. I watched "Tiny Toons" when I was a kid, though haven't seen it for a while besides two video tapes. One featuring 60's pop songs and They Might Be Giants ("Particle Man", "Istanbul") and one with Plucky & Hampton meeting Gremlins, similar to the Bugs Bunny "Falling Hare" cartoon, in the center of the Earth.

2. Favortie cartoon... too many to mention.

As of now, "South Park". Though it's past it's peak and I'm a bit suprised that it's been 10 years since it first aired.

As of Looney Tunes, too much to mention though the best would be from the 1940's to mid 1950's.



3. I would say that I'm part Porky Pig and a bit of 50's Daffy Duck

1. I watched "Tiny Toons" when I was a kid, though haven't seen it for a while besides two video tapes. One featuring 60's pop songs and They Might Be Giants ("Particle Man", "Istanbul") and one with Plucky & Hampton meeting Gremlins, similar to the Bugs Bunny "Falling Hare" cartoon, in the center of the Earth.

2. Favortie cartoon... too many to mention.

I took a test that said I was Bugs Bunny, although I don't know how accurate it is.

Can someone find that test (or a similar one)? I bet the results would be fun to share here!
