HOWEVER, if they ever decide to make an animated version of Conan O'Brien and Bruce Timm's "Flaming C", I will never miss an episode. Here's a fan-made cartoon to prove my point:

Shel Silverstein got animated in 1973 with a short based on his book "The Giving Tree".

Charlie O. Hayward directed and animated it. Silverstein himself narrates the story.

Interestingly enough, I once had a daydream about Warners producing a short based off Silverstein's "Giving Tree" book, made in the 1960's and directed, not by Chuck Jones, but by Bob McKimson (Yes, this was shortly after I saw "Bartholomew Versus the Wheel" for the first time).

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.

This made me cry when I was 6!

Like noticing the older MPAA logo here too, it was already the early 70's yet they didn't use the current one there.

I could sorta see that too, if the studio stayed open a bit longer and they went on this route of making these types of cartoons nothing like what they were doing before.

It seems that the older MPAA logo continued to be used on shorts during this time. DePatie-Freleng used the older MPAA logo too (save for "Ant & Aardvark" and "Dogfather")

It certainly didn't die out completely back then. I think "The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie" even had it too, and that was 1979.

No idea if anyone has posted this but it's still a great appearance of Bugs at the 1990 Oscars.
