Music and Cartoons

Holy crap, so this Twitter thread brought back so many childhood memories. Some of my favorite WB cartoons were the ones that involved musical sequences like this. I remember “What’s Opera, Doc?” was one of the best.

(That fat horse, oh my god)

I also loved “The Rabbit of Seville.”

“Carnival of the Animals” was good, too!

And I have some vague memory of some VHS tape we had where there was some concert thing and Claudio Abbado was a puppet…Peter and the Wolf, maybe? I can’t remember.


I think these really helped instill my love of music. I remember enjoying how the action paired with the changes in the tempo/mood/volume of the music and thinking how it was SO FREAKING COOL.

“What happened to the stairs?!”

Hahaha, this makes me super happy and nostalgic.

Sorry, I’ve been having a really crappy day and this made things a little bit better.

Oh Internet…

There has been at least one previous blog post in which I’ve mentioned an assortment of Garfield parodies/tributes.

Well here’s another one. Garkov uses a Markov model to take transcripts of old Garfield strips and rearranges it to make new strips.

Some of them that you get are freaking great.

There’s also a list of other Garfield fun on the internet at the bottom of the page.



The Panther, the Wizard, and the Laundry Chute

For all of you who enjoy my stats-related posts, here are some of my dumb cartoons. Yes, I know they suck. Yes, I know I can’t draw/Photoshop/be funny. Oh well. Click to enlarge.

DUDES, did anybody else ever watch these?

YouTube is single-handedly making me relive my childhood. Freaking awesome.

Oh, Canadians…

When I was a kid and still going over to my dad’s place on the weekends, we’d often watch his old VHS tapes of the Rocky & Bullwinkle show. One component of the show that (for whatever reason) was brought to the forefront of my memory today was the old Dudley Do-Right segments.

The humor of these must have just gone completely over my head as a kid, but as I’m typing this now I’ve got this one playing in the background and I’m laughing like crazy.

Here are two others:

“We’ve destroyed more bridges than a near-sighted dentist!” Hahahaha.

Why don’t the other months get “Fests?” October’s not THAT special! Where’s my FebruaryFest?

Hey people! So I was dinking around on YouTube and the like tonight. Anybody else remember these? What strange and magnificent memories they evoked:

What’s Opera, Doc?
Duck Amuck

One Froggy Evening

Rabbit of Seville

Great lazy days of childhood, where have you gone?


…old cartoons.

I was watching Boomerang tonight and Two Stupid Dogs came on.

Did anyone else watch that when they were younger? The one with Noah’s Ark was on and I found it rather disturbing that I remembered most of the lines.

Who watched Eek? I loved Eek!

And Talespin. Best. Freaking. Cartoon. Ever.


I miss cartoons.
