What if Mel Blanc lived until 1994?

He may have done voice work on "Tiny Toons" and "Animaniacs."

What if Betty Boop continued making cartoons into the 1950's?

Joe McCarthy would have had her blacklisted for her ties to that known Communist sympathizer, Professor Grampy.

What if the Fleischer Studios had just flat-out turned down the offer to do Superman cartoons instead of just asking for a huge amount of money?

The directors would have taken advantage of that on The Bugs Bunny Show, having Daffy show it off to Bugs any chance he got. And if the audience never applauded Daffy, he'd remind them, "Who's the one who actually won an Oscar?"

What if Bob Clampett hadn't left WB until 1949?

What if Don Bluth had actually directed An American Tail: Fievel Goes West, as well as the other sequels to his films (like All Dogs Go to Heaven 2)? If he did, maybe they would have been a bit better.

He'd have no time to work on "A Troll in Central Park", or "Thumbelina", thus neither film would be on his conscious.
