Don’t they like lease those things? I mean, I’ve watched Bugs Bunny cartoons almost forever and I’m real tired of him and company. I remember when the Flintstones first came on TV! Now, I’m kind of tired of them. No, real tired of them. Wilma should have divorced Fred years ago. The Jetsons used to be kind of fun, but then they started having episodes where his boss gets involved in everything and I’m real tired of the little creep.
A couple of cartoons vanished off of Nickelodeon, Rocko’s Modern Life and Real Monsters – leaving the cartoon which started all of the current drooling and gross spots in cartoonage of today – Ren and Stimpy. (Ugh!)
There used to be dozens of Saturday Morning cartoon shows in the 60s and 70s – not like today, where kids could watch happily from something like 7 AM to noon, si I’d think they could find others.
I’m real unpleased with their little ‘filmetts’ where they use copywritten cartoon characters and computer animation to make them ay and do goofy things. Like make Space Ghost (my hero of preteen years) act like a dumb bugger.
There were some new computer animations out, like Kartoons – a city and family of nuts where everyone was a car expert and drove souped up cars, one about an odd cat that lived in a house with another cat – no people – where strange things happened and for a time O Canada was churning out some weird but cool ones. HBO used to air cartoon from film schools – back when cable had lots of empty slots and HBO took two hour long intermissions – that were great – like Sandman – a weird cartoon of figures made from sand, and then a cool stop action animation with people in it where the hero was a detective. (You had to see it to believe it.) Similar to the stop action motorcycle scenes – guys riding cycles – but no cycles there – seen on America’s Funniest Home Videos.
