Mel Blanc shilling for MTV. I keep thinking that's Bugs Bunny instead of a sock puppet.

I'm sure this has been posted in a YouTube thread before, but what's the title of that 1980's Japanese cartoon that spoofs old black and white westerns.

Part of the humor derives from the Tex Avery inspired visual-gags in which things like bad film splices and scratches actually intrude on the action of the cartoon.

The cartoon is mostly in black and white, but about 2/3 of the way in there's a very brief, dream-like sequence during which the hero and heroine are dancing together in a ballroom.

UK studio rushes from the fourth season of Fraggle Rock. It's very sad that the majority of the UK editions have mysteriously disappeared. :(

Here's my nomination for the creepiest "Courage the Cowardly Dog" segment...and that's saying a LOT (it's the only one that genuinely made me uncomfortable whenever it was on as a kid).

On the other side, here's what I believe is one of the saddest episodes of Courage the Cowardly Dog. It's both beautiful and a tearjerker.

Swing Wedding: Probably the only MGM cartoon in this period that's worth seeing - only becuase of the Eisenstein inspired ending.

I was actually more moved by this one- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VrWpsp0a7E

However, "Starmakers" is certainly more on the beautiful side and very good.

One of the episodes I liked was "The Magic Tree of Nowhere".

You know, it never occurred to me that Courage the Cowardly Dog is probably the best show Cartoon Network ever had.
