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...

*I* could understand Scooby. You couldn't?! As for the differences between Pluto and Goofy - I always just thought it meant that if a dog has brain damage, he'll start acting human. Sounds about right, doesn't it? :)

I always kinda hoped the roadrunner would get caught by the coyote.. or some desert mountain lion or something. Go "meep meep" and zoom really fast - right into a deadly cactus.. ip
Trip over those gangly legs of his and face plant know.. normal kid-thoughts completely uninspired by violence. ;)

I hear that "wa-wa" language all the time -0 usually when someone tries to talk to me about computers, cars or hunting. :)

As for the rest of them.. I'd just like to thank you for sticking a bunch of old theme songs into my head... and Newt yelling, "Over here, Herc! Over here!"

You're so mean. :)

And B&V - I've got a follow up for you for that one - I just have to take a pic of it first. :D

I'm gonna say that Spidey was dangling his web from pigeons. Having lived in San Francisco for 10 years and just outside NYC for one now, I can say that pigeons are the most available resource in both places.

ONIT... AGREED on the dogs... although our two may be the exceptions as they can be pretty... um... "damaged" sometimes. There was a poster in the late seventies at Crappy Tire of the coyote with the roadrunner in his grasp beating the tar out of him... I wanted that poster in the WORST way... Wa wa, wa bus wa wa busly wa wa... "Band of brothers, marching together! Heads held high in all types of weather!" Hey, I coulda been worse... "We're three sad souls, oh me! oh my! No brain! No heart! He's much to shy! Well never mind you three... here's the Wizard as you can see... he'll fix you one-two-three in that funny land called the world of Oz!" - P.S: Have you "moused over" the images??? :)

Hey Frogster... Well, Spidey was supposed to be from NYC... but the animation on the 1967 version was done in Toronto... so I'll guess seagulls. :)

Hi Trina... Considering they sold mallets, rocket engines, springs, magnets, paint... you may be on to something... perhaps Acme is a whacky hardware store only! Okay then, why couldn't he order a pizza if he was so hungry? :)

I don't understand what you are talking about with Peanuts. Adults do talk like that, don't they?

To quote my old teacher, "Wa-Wa, Wa-wa-wa-wah, wa"

P.S. I'm editing my blogroll this evening and you're on it now. Consider it my first donation toward the bus.

Hi Tina K... Well, SOME of my teachers didn't talk like that... but quite often, I'm pretty sure many of the senior folks at my office do. I will add you to my blogroll as well! Many thanks!

This blog is called One Old Green Bus. Yup, the bus is green. What colour is the bus?

The Current Time in Toronto is...

One Old Green Bus

This blog was started in April of 2006... its original itent was really twofold. One was to be a "sounding board" for it's author... and the other... well...

At the time we started this, your humble author was unemployed and going through the usual crisis situations that arise from being jobless.

We (my wife, stepdaughter, and I,) used to "amuse" ourselves (read: Take our minds off our troubles) by more-or-less fantasizing as a family about what we'd do when things "turned around". Along this route, we discussed going to England on a vacation... and in that, alighted on "double-decker buses".

We kind of adopted one bus... Regent Low Height 3... as Our Bus... and we used to talk about what we'd do with "our bus" if we got it... from fixing it up to the trips we'd take on it.

Along the way, we became students of the history of this bus which HONESTLY seemd it was truly for us... trouble was, we couldn't afford the bus and weren't in a position to work towards the bus... so we had a couple of options...

Since the bus' position was sketchy (there's a chance she might be sold for scrap or "carved up" in other ways,) we could forget about her and pretend she didn't exist...

...or we could TRY... ask for help... put our dream of owning and saving "One Old Green Bus" into the universe and see what happens...

As of February, 2008, we knew that there was a perspective buyer for the bus (not us, obviously,) and made some difficult decisions... The first was that we wouldn't "beg" for help anymore and give the little money we received to a few different charities both online and off... and the second was simply hope that either we find a corporate sponsor (for an "ad" idea we have, click here to about read that,) or even a patron who see's the value in a silly family's dream...

But, if the bus is about to be purchased by someone who's planning on restoring it and they "get there first", we wish them well and are glad that at least Our One Old Green Bus is in a safe place being looked after.

For now, though, we are still hoping WE might be the ones to get our One Old Green Bus and see a family dream come true...

Regardless, this blog WILL continue... and we will still "go for" a bus of our own... but this blog will ALWAYS be dedicated to our own One Old Green Bus.
