These general bumpers are so boring and uninspired. Remember how much fun Cartoon Network's bumpers used to be when they still had the checkerboard motif?
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.

I liked seeing this one again, too. This may have been answered in the past, but who voices Leo the Lion in this one? Was it Tedd Pierce? It sure doesn't sound like a Blanc voice to my ears.

I like the special "Now back to Looney Tunes" bumpers more than those generic CN ones with the little bowling pin-shaped guys dancing around.

Yeah, it's Pierce voicing the lion (isn't he great?). In spite of a few bits of funky animation, this is a really funny one. I recall reading a passage in Barrier's book where he derides the Jones Bugs of this era as badly drawn, but other than the aforementioned bits, I fail to see what he's talking about.

I did not realize that a half hour after LT goes off (and after Scooby Doo) that CN is airing a half hour of Pink Panther cartoons. Of course last time I paid any attention to CN before this the only "classics" they would ever air were A Pup Named Scooby Doo and the ever-present Tom and Jerry.

They have been showing Pink Panther for a couple of months now. As far as I know, they have been showing just the Panther cartoons (no Aardvark, Inspector, etc.).

Thanks, Thad!

Yes, the lion's voice was great. "Here bunny, bunny... here RABBIT!" cracks me up. Like most of Jones' stuff from around this time, the pacing is a bit on the slow side but the gags are funny.

Before anybody asks, no that is not Tex Avery voicing the hippo. It's Dave Weber.

"I must defend the remarkable prescience of the Hanna-Barbera writers. In the early 1960s, they dreamed up a futuristic world that seemed impossibly beyond our reach. Their creativity predicted the microwave oven, slide walks, smart phones and robot teachers. All these inventions are now routine realities of the 21st century." - Janet Waldo (LA Times, 2011)

In other words, air the LT cartoons as they were originally released. I appreciate being able to watch them on TV again, but eventually CN needs to stop censoring them.
