My childhood in a nutshell. Saturday morning. Parents still asleep. Bowl of some way too sweet sugary cereal that I convinced them to buy because it had a toy I wanted so I dumped out the cereal to get the toy because it was invariably at the bottom of the box, then put the cereal back in the box only to make a bowl to watch Saturday morning cartoons. Bugs was the tops. There were weird 70s cartoons like that racing show with the Penelope and that dog with emphysema but Bugs ruled..
Looney Tunes were originally developed as "shorts" between feature films at the cinema. According to Mel Blanc, "The cartoons we created were never intended for children." Maybe that is why I still find them so entertaining after all these years : )
