You’re Never Too Old For Cartoons – Tad Pole’s Favorites
When Polly caught her daughter Shayna singing to cartoons, at the top of her lungs, she asked ‘Aren’t you too old for cartoons?’ Shayna’s response, ‘You’re never too old for cartoons.’ Shayna, I couldn’t agree more. Old or new, I still love all cartoons. The traditional, Bugs Bunny or Roadrunner works or today’s version of cartoons, Family Guy and American Dad. Do you still watch cartoons?
Foghorn Leghorn may not have been the populace choice of the time, but it was my favorite. I liked Bugs and company, but the nothing beat the Rooster versus The Dog.
Bugs and Porky got lots of press, but again I didn’t go with the flow. My favorite is when Bugs took on the whole Gas House Gorilla’s baseball team. I always thought this was a slap at the Yankees, but in reality it was a mock up of the 1934 St. Louis Cardinals.
And who couldn’t sit down with some Roadrunner – Wile E Coyote battles. This probably ruined the name of any business that had ACME in their name.
Sam Sheepdog and Ralph Wolf was another one of my favorites. I always thought Ralph was Wile E Coyote, but it turns out he wasn’t. The character was identical to Wile E, but he had a red nose.
