Mumbles … Century

I miss Saturday mornings.  Growing up in the 60’s and 70’s you could wake up Saturday morning and turn on the TV to 3 out of the 4 channels and watch cartoons most of the morning.  Looney Tunes were by far my favorites.  Marvin the Martian is probably my favorite character, he just barely beats out Bugs Bunny.  But there was another character that I still remember – Duck Dodgers in the 24th and 1/2 Century!  He was such a clueless character playing off of Porky Pig’s “straight man.”  But probably more than that I loved the short cartoons they ran between the main cartoons – School House Rock.  And I didn’t know that I was learning at the same time.  It was fun, it can’t be educational.  But it was and more than once I played those songs in my head during English class, history or science even.  What cartoon from your childhood do you miss?  Who was your favorite character?

Here is a snippet of Duck Dodgers in the 24th and 1/2 century…

    1. It is not really that they are more violent (Elmer Fudd shooting Daffy all the time, Road Runner and Wile E Coyote constant attacks, and many others that beat each other black and blue.) but it is more realistic now.
