Cartoons to Kill for

If someone was going to ever kill over a cartoon I would think this one would be worth a riot or two. It is about a saylor who mumbles his retorts, His fickle underweight girlfriend, a bully, a bum and a neglected baby. The hero uses a bastardized Bible quote as his main slogan, "I yam what I yam". Furthermore he trys to pass off spinach as a cure-all power booster. I mean if I wanted to I could smash some skulls over this, but that would make matters worse.

Popeye is okay, but I'd plug that Road Runner in an eyeblink. Cocky little sucker. I always root for the coyote.

Yea I don't feel anything is worth blowing up, smashing up and killing up a bunch of folks...unless they directly attack me and mine. Draw anything you like about any subject you like and I will never harm you. And by the way I like Olive Oil's lovely lady lumps.

On a serious note, why don't they make cartoons with the fabulous craft of the old days anymore? Watch an old Fleischer Bros cartoon (like Popeye) some time and you quickly realize how fabulous the art work is!

As for the folks who would riot over cartoons, i say: "if you don't want to be stereotyped, don't act like a stereotype!"

Old cartoons were drawn by hand, cell by cell. The last one to be done that way is the Simpsons. And some Japanese animes. All the stuff you see now from America is computer-generated. It does make a difference.

That's my daughter's pet peeve. She hates CGA

Anne,

Surely, South Park is drawn by hand. Isn't it?

I agree with greatwhite bear, the old cartoons are better, just like the old comic books were much more artistic (not to mention with better stories) like the old Batman- the crazed anarchist Batman, I mean.
