Cartoon Logic is Lost On Me Sometimes...

What happens when I'm drawing a blank and need a blog post? Well, I could bore you with more "busly goodness", but instead, I just started thinking about cartoons... more importantly, the real questions I have about SOME cartoons...

...such as...


What terrible brain injury or handicap were Scooby Doo and Pluto born with that they were also in the same sphere as Scrappy Doo (who could be easily understood when speaking) and Goofy (who although "slow", displayed more human characteristics than dog.)


...or were Goofy and Scrappy overly-intelligent mutants?

...and did Hanna-Barbera do the decent thing and fire the creator of Scrappy Doo for totally sinking the cartoon?

Wile E. Genius... SUPER Genius!

With all the money he spent on gadgets from Acme, why didn't the coyote simply order up a box of frozen roadrunner steaks?

What's sad is this looks like a group photo from my office.

What terrible brain injury or handicap were all the adults in the Peanuts cartoons born with to always sound like "Wa-Wa, Wa-wa-wa-wah, wa."...? or were the Peanuts kids all excellent translators for an obviously alien dialect?

Does anyone know the house/trance/whatever song where they sampled the "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!" and did a FANTASTIC job of doing a sample-job with Charlie Brown proclaiming, "I got a rock... rock... rock... I got a rock... rock... r-r-r-r-rock"? It so HIGHLY amused me!

Handsome Devil, for a Canadian...

(Canadians Only) - Did you ever notice Rocket Robin Hood fought a lot of the same monsters and in the same environments as the original Spider Man?

Would you believe this was Spidey in 1967???

Did you ever notice, in the original Spider Man, he would simply fire a web into apparently straight-up nuthin' but air and swing? What was he hooking onto? A star? Satellites? Aircraft? Birds?

Which one... which one...

You can actually tell what kind of man you're dealing with if you simply ask, "Betty or Veronica?" I ain't tellin' which one I'd go for.

...and if they DON'T understand the question, that's a BAD sign!

...and is the irony lost on you that Archie's jalopy would now be considered a valuable antique car that there's no chance in heck a teenager would be near?

The Modern Stone-Aged Fam-Ell-Eee!

This isn't mine originally, but I do wonder... if Fred knew that EVERY TIME he ordered the brontosaurus ribs at the drive-in restaurant, they'd tip over his car... why'd he keep ordering them?

They became a joke in themselves... tragic...

Was there ANYTHING more tragic then when Tom and Jerry stopped fighting and became buddies? It was like when they introduced "Poochie" to Itchy and Scratchy... but without the comedic elements.

"Do you like movies about gladiators, Newt?"

(Canadians Only) - Did you notice that "The Mighty Hercules" had two villains that were identical... "Daedalius" and although never acknowledged as such, Daedalius with a bucket on his head called "The Mask of Vulcan"?

Who are these people and how did they invade EVERY aspect of life on Earth?

Is there ANYTHING possible in any life that does NOT have a connection to a Simpson's episode?

...there, I think I've exhausted this. :)


The standard last note on the old blog... PLEASE SUPPORT THE DREAM!

This blog is here to help promote a dream that an entire family shares... that dream is to rescue an old London Double-Decker bus.


Please, if you have a few minutes, take some time to find out more about this bus and the kooky dream by clicking here.

This bus is VERY special to myself and the whole family, and any help any person can lend us would be most gratefully accepted.

If you or someone you know might be interested, there's our tiny banner site, HelpCoverTheBus.Com and a PayPal donation button (see the upper-right hand side of the blog) and, of course, a Cafe Press shop for T-Shirts and shtuff!
(...and who doesn't need some shtuff!)

Please help us make this dream a reality and save a piece of history!

We thank you for your support!

Please Note: We are also hoping for help from a public relations/marketing standpoint... If you might be able to assist OR know someone who might be willing to, please click here and read this entry...
