I'll start.

What if the Hays Code never went into effect.

Tex Avery's cartoons would be even more edgier and Betty Boop wouldn't have lost her charm.

What if Jim Henson actually work as an animator for Disney in the early 1960s (I read that in a book)?

Only the characters mouths would be animated.

What if a significant amount of Bugs Bunny shorts were made in Black & White?:bugs1:
Well, fancy meeting you two here.

Norm McCabe would have had a chance to direct some Bugs Bunny toons.

What if everyone at the WB studio wanted to stay with the fat Elmer Fudd?

We'd have a lot of fat jokes to remember, regardless of whether or not they're politically correct.


What if Walter Lantz made Andy Panda cartoons past 1949?
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.

As budgets declined, Andy would likely have been given a ridiculous speaking voice, a child (or childlike) sidekick, a mediocre villain who reappeared in nearly every short and usually resembled Inspector Willoughby, a stationary bow tie... :eek:

What if Lantz had made Charlie Chicken into a full-fledged series star?

It probably wouldn't have lasted byond three cartoons.

What if Bugs Bunny appeared with Porky Pig in more cartoons?

Then most of the cartoons would have starred Porky as the hunter and Bugs as the prey. Since Porky is smarter than Elmer, it would be more of a challenge for Bugs. Porky would probably catch Bugs like he did to Daffy in DAFFY DUCK HUNT.

What if Chuck Jones had directed a Fox and Crow cartoon?

Fox & Crow would be as well-remembered today as Roadrunner & Wile E. Coyote.

What if Les Kline became director at Lantz?

Les was actually a directer at Lantz for a breif time in the late 30s.
