Hey, flipper, thanks for starting this thread.
I started out with avishai's link to the Marc Antony cartoon, and soon ended up watching - or trying to watch - Disney's "Little Hiawatha." It is pretty and full of teh cuteness, but it pisses me off. It is true neither to history, edifying legend, the epic poem, nor even the basic facts of animal behavior. Only the quality of the background art (Disney could animate water like nobody else) saves it from being utter kitsch.
Anyhow: I'm all about Bugs Bunny and his
victims pals. And, in fact, most Warner Brothers productions up through the early '60's. Then the quality, not only of the art but the writing, really began to deteriorate. I think the Termite Terrace crew were in their prime from about 1940-1955. For animation, that's a good long run.
You know, I just might spend a couple hours today watching cartoons on youtube, or seeing what's available in the "Watch Now" section at Netflix.
