"Of Course You Know, This Means War!"

Fairly certain that if Popehat (who is usually more sensible) reconsidered this tweet, he'd realize "late 70's" was a typo, and what he meant was "the '60's." 'Cause Saturday morning cartoons sucked by the late '70's, and the cause of the failure was Hannah-Barbera, who should have stopped with Tom & Jerry (never that good anyway), and never gone on to the perdition of "The Flintstones" and The Dog Who Shall Not Be Named.

The only real cartoons were directed by (in order of importance):  Bob Clampett, Chuck Jones, and Friz Freleng.  All others are unmutual!


  1. Uh,Max Fleischer. Though that wasn't Saturday Cartoons.
    H.H. provided me with a nickname for Lindsay Graham before I started calling him things that they couldn't have on during Saturday cartoons. Do they still have those?

  2. Max Fleischer is allowed, and approved. We would also allow Popeye.

    And Saturday cartoons are back, on a broadcast channel picked up as a digital offering now that local stations can broadcast several signals digitally. MeTV is a boomer-oriented station that shows re-runs from the '60's and '70's, including Perry Mason (which I watch more faithfully than I should), and now runs Bugs Bunny and Tom & Jerry cartoons for three hours on Saturday morning.

    It is really rather sad that I know this.
