uh.....what's a mung bean?

Re: what's your favorite cartoon?

I have so many it's hard ot pick just one,,,,, anything with the Coyote in it.

The perfect symbol for mankind, no matter what goes wrong he always tries again.

Re: Re: what's your favorite cartoon?

Gotta throw Charlie Brown and the whole gang in there, talk about deep, you got depression, unrequited love and just about ever type of neurosis thrown into a comic strip and cartoons. Not too keen on the holiday specials though. GOOD GRIEF!!!

Re: Re: Re: what's your favorite cartoon?

Good Grief indeed Andy!! nothin like a bit of depression & neurosis in a cartoon to put a smile on yr face! :-)
I have to confess I'm a big kid at heart.. I'm a real fan of 'Scooby Doo', but my favourite cartoon is probly 'Top Cat' (have the theme song to that as a ring tone on my mobile!)

Re: Re: Re: Re: what's your favorite cartoon?

Andy!!now if you want neurosis? you gotta go with the Winnie-the-Pooh bunch. Firstly, you got Eeyore who is in a state of perpetual depression, bless his heart. Then you got Tigger, can we say ADHD? Rabbit has got a case of OCD and some major control issues. Piglet (my hero) has a severe case of anxiety. Now Pooh himself...well he obviously has either an eating disorder (heavy honey consumption) or substance abuse, however you want to look at it!

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: what's your favorite cartoon?

Gotta be honest much as I love Winnie the Pooh and having read and loved all the books as a child I feel that once the characters were bought by Disney and turned into cartoons a lot of the charm and simplicity of its original form was lost. Having said all that I still have a soft spot for Winnie and the gang.
Right at the other end of the spectrum I got home from work late last night and caught back to back episodes of Family Guy on cable and I wasn't just chuckling I was laughing out loud.

Re: what's your favorite cartoon?

Hong Kong Phooey is a crack up! That dragon is too much.

Re: Re: what's your favorite cartoon?

Re: what's your favorite cartoon?

Re: Re: what's your favorite cartoon?

Wow, that's a trip down memory lane.

The Yogi Yahoey's were my favorite.

Re: Re: Re: what's your favorite cartoon?

Re: Re: Re: Re: what's your favorite cartoon?

I thought I was having a musical nightmare!!! The name Mung Bean Jesus popped into my head and I awoke in a cold sweat, was I imagining them? No they really did exist and they were as bad as the name suggests..LOL

Re: Re: Re: what's your favorite cartoon?

(((Rev. Shawn))) what was the name of that third team???

Re: Re: Re: Re: what's your favorite cartoon?

The Scoobie Doobies.
I'm searching the net for the members of the three teams, as I can name a few but not all.

Re: what's your favorite cartoon?

My all time fave has to be Chip and Dale, but gotta keep Winnie and the Gang close up to the top.

I love Futurama as well, even though it got axed because all they wanted was another Simpsons. The jokes in it are sometimes less obvious but much funnier when you get them.

Re: Re: Re: Re: what's your favorite cartoon?

Oh boy I'm on a roll here I guess my love of everything is guided purely by mood, what makes me ROTFL one min will leave me stony faced others, but I guess for sheer creative insanity and being way ahead of his time it's got to be anything directed and written by Tex Avery. Play any number of Warner Bros shorts back to back and his work was stands out like head and shoulders above the rest, so distinctive in its creativity that it lead to him been sacked because he was, for the time just too far out there.

Re: Re: Re: Re: what's your favorite cartoon?

Ah man when did they AX Futurama? I loved that one.

Re: what's your favorite cartoon?

I absolutely love the smurfs but as I have gotten older I have realized they talk alot in code. What exactly does it mean when they say they are going to go smurf smurfette down by the river? Well smurfette is sooooo smurfy. Is that good or bad? And with only one Papa smurf arent they her brothers anyway?

LOL wldhrt, I love your Summary of the Pooh characters, you are so right on about all of them. but you did forget Owl who is either an annoying know-it-all or another one with control issues. lol

Re: Re: what's your favorite cartoon?

I've been LMAO watching episodes of Family Guy tonight but ''old school'' Tom and Jerry has still got to come very close to the top of anybodys list. As for the Smurfs I would direct anybody to the scene in Donnie Darko where the Smurfs are discussed.

Re: Re: Re: what's your favorite cartoon?

I like the Justice League of America. Superman is my favorite character.

Re: Re: Re: Re: what's your favorite cartoon?

My favorite of all is Scooby-Doo. Or Dark Wing Duck. But then there's the chipmunks....

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: what's your favorite cartoon?

OMG - I remember Dark Wing Duck! hahaha. What a hoot!

Peace, Love, Mung Beans

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: what's your favorite cartoon?

Hey Spiz.. how could I forget the chipmunks?! that was wicked! & I'm so glad there's another Scooby Doo fan out there! :-) Good on ya!
