I find it interesting the disparity between a lot of the pop culture references in the cartoons of this era and the figures that are remem...

The use of the splitting-into-several-Boskos gag in two consecutive releases is a fairly good indication of Harman and Ising's lack of commitment to originality in this period.

I have a distinct memory of seeing Porky Of The Northwoods in B&W on Nick around the 93-95 period, along with multiple airings of Wise Quacks and an isolated Buddy's Showboat.

A little more recent, but you get my drift: In the "For Your Ed Only" episode of Cartoon Network's Ed, Edd and Eddy , in which the Eds steal Ed's sister Sarah's diary, Eddy reads the following quote from the diary: "Dear Diary: Double D (Edd) is so cute.
