When you can sit down and watch THE ABYSS uncut with commercials, and never get up, yet you get restless and annoyed being subjected to less than 2 hours of Looney Tunes.

My dad has this problem. It makes no sense to me.

-When a cartoon is boiled down to falling anvils, mallets, and explosives.

-When you can't distinguish between the WB directors' styles.

-When Donald Duck says "That's all, Folks!" :p

-When you can't answer a toon-related question on Jeopardy.

-If your name is Larry Doyle. :shame:
Cartoons never were just for children. And neither is it a genre. It is an artistic medium where the use of caricatures are used to entertain or educate, with animation bringing said caricatures to life.

With such contemporary cartoons as The Simpsons, Family Guy, South Park, and the Adult Swim line-up, it's hard to dismiss the animated cartoon as only kids' fare. Cartoons can be for anyone. It's pure common sense.

You think classic Disney cartoons include "Ducktales," "Gummi Bears," "Chip 'N' Dale's Rescue Rangers", and "Goof Troop."

You associate Merrily We Roll Along with the thicker concentric circles.

You think the Looney Tunes Laff Riots, Speedy Gonzalez, and Marvin Martian movies are all good ideas.

I think the "Laff Riot" idea would work if done right.

(Somewhat of an offshoot of that)

You thought that Loonatics Unleashed was a part of the Looney Tunes' evolution. :rolleyes:

You think Droopy is a Looney Tune character.


I found an otherwise good Hallmark Easter card at Kroger today that label him as such.
