Excuse the harsh tone, but—please get a grip. Wikipedia is full of errors and omissions far worse than this. But okay, into the breach... if only because it relates to a discovery I made. Crazy HR—you call the Wiki editor an "idiot" for demanding "a quote for everything," but then you complain about...

The mechanical horse is based closely on one from Disney's OZZIE OF THE MOUNTED (1928), on which Harman and Ising worked; a similar mechanical horse would also appear in Harman-Ising's THE OLD PLANTATION (1935) at MGM; a few gags are the same in all three films. Notably, the horse is never a sentien...

I wondered what that receipt was for. :lepew: Bugsmer—how can one person be two persons and yet be the same person? FYI, Tom and Thad are separate. I've heard some silly theories around here, but this... WoodpeckerWoody, Chooch: Well, that's everyone's loss, isn't it? Tell me this , this , and this ...

You're too right. I've actually got tons of things I'd like to blog about (and a few new original titles discoveries, though not Warner or MGM)—I'm just hard-pressed for free time given my work schedule.
Soon, though... :mickey:

Certainly was, we're so use to perhaps their depictions in those 30's cartoons and the comics that followed, it was rather nice to see a sort of update of the characters by that point in time. The Pigs seemed to represent a simple update of the PRACTICAL PIG model sheet. Zeke was more interesting—s...

I actually thought [the fight] was rather out-of-character for them, perhaps moreso than any other scene in the show so far. Agreed, actually (...and that's with the bar already set terribly low). It felt wrong for Bugs to be fighting this way, period—and for Foghorn to be fighting this way f...

But I can say their early Scrappy and Krazy Kat cartoons (which I have seen) are very hard to sit through. Hmm, which period were you watching? IMHO, 1930-1932 is a very funny period with a Fleischer-like ambience and very few misfires. There continue to be some classics into 1934 (BOWERY DAZE, FAR...
