  1. Mono / Twilight Sad

    I’ve always been a big fan of the Looney Tunes cartoons (especially toons with Bugs and Daffy together), but my cartoon appreciation lately is biased towards what my son is watching, so current faves are old Tom and Jerrys, the mid-90s Little Lulus (with Tracey Ullman), Spongebob (I have a special fondness for the Sam Henderson episodes, since he’s one of the funniest illustrators around), plus many of the Studio Ghibli movies like My Neighbor Totoro and Ponyo.

    Also, the Cowboy Bebop shows are really great!

  2. Mono…

    Have to say that my favorite cartoon is the Pink Panther collection. True genius communicated with next to NO words. What started out as a movie intro ended up being one of the most memorable set of shorts in history. What were there, almost 90 episodes?

  3. Friends and I constantly have cartoon discussions just for nostalgia sake. The first cartoons I remember watching in my youth were all of the classic Nick Jr. shows like David the Gnome, The Noozles, The Littl’ Bits, Muppet Babies, etc. As I got a bit older I became privy to stuff like Resue Rangers, Ducktails, Goof Troop, Animaniacs, Tailspin, Rocko’s Modern Life, and countless others.

  4. Great responses! I was a huuuuuge Duck Tales/Rescue Rangers fan growing up.

    The Mono tix will go to DJ Renton this week. No takers on Gary Louris?!
