My thoughts on animation

I never was a kid who got up at the ass crack of dawn to watch cartoons on Saturday mornings.

(I never was a kid to get up early for anything truth be told.)

The problem I think is that I was born too late for the cartoons that I appreciate. The ones that appealed to me were done from the late 40's-60's.

I recall the before and after school children's TV offerings on good ol' Channel 41 when I was in grade school. They showed the old Tom and Jerry, Woody Woodpecker, and my all time favorite...

Tex Avery!

Y'know Droopy, and the opera singing dog, the wolf, the flea circus?

Classics that can still make me nearly pee my pants from laughing so hard.

The Cartoon Network used to have a half hour show just of Tex Avery classics, I don't know if that is still the case. If not I know you can find collections on video.

I highly encourage you to check them out.

Yeah, most cartoons just don't have the innuendo and suggestiveness that Tex packed into his.
