It did cheer me up to see Foggy again.

(And I have to admit i had to think for a while to figure out why they put him in the magazine.)

I love "Kitty Kornered," particularly the "Goodnight, butterball" scene, but I think "Hare Ribbin'" really reduces me to helpless laughter. I love the scene where the Russian dog says "Let us play games."

I've always liked "Horse Hare." I remember when it used to air fairly often on Saturday mornings. Now I think Freleng was parodying "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon" a John Wayne film (one of John Ford's 'cavalry trilogy' movies from the late Forties.) I also rank "From Heir to Hare" and "Lighter Than Hare...

The last time I watched some of the "proto-Bugs Bunny" cartoons that Hardaway worked on, "Porky's Rabbit Hunt" and "hare-un Scare-um," I noticed that the proto-Bugs laughed like Woody: "Huh-huh-huh-HUH-huh." I think that Woody, as well as Bugs Bunny, grew out of the proto-Bugs.

This is a good Foghorn Leghorn cartoon, but I am always surprised to read in "Of Mice and Magic" that Maltin considered it one of the best late Warners cartoons.

Of the later Foghorns, I like "fox Terror" and "Weasel While You Work" better (although I don't like the music in that one.)

I haven't seen either "Song of the South" or "Princess and the Frog." I was stunned to see "Princess and the Frog" being advertised at the DVD section of my local supermarket yesterday. Did the film tank so badly that it is already on video? On a more positive note, I was cheered to see that the "do...

I think "The Wabbit who Came to Supper" is the first great Bugs Bunny cartoon. It always makes me laugh, from Elmer's "Fwee to womp and fwolic in the woods" to Bugs' "death scene" on the front porch. I love the ultra feminine bedroom in Elmer's house. (why does Elmer have one in his house?) Just a l...

The weird thing about Smith, to me, is his utter unpredictability. "Hot Noon" and "Real gone Woody" are terrific. Then he takes over Woody on a regular basis and turns out some utterly boring cartoons, and then "Bunco Busters" comes out. Wow, a really funny cartoon, you think. Smith must have gotten...

I always enjoy this one. I like how Jerry disarms the booby trap he left in Tom's milk. Also, I get a kick out of how the two antagonists use the toys in their struggle.

I like "Tom Turkey and his Harmonica Humdingers." That always makes me smile.

"The Calico Dragon" is very sweet and charming as well.
