Interesting... I used to love Charlotte's Web, but I have no idea what Penelope Pitstop is.

He gave me the creeps when I was a kid too, but I was also fascinated. I watched the show again a couple of years ago and couldn't believe some of the jokes that slipped past censors.

Yea I've watched shows that I watch as a kid and can't believe half the stuff that flew over my head or got away with even like old Nickelodeon shows from the 90s. 

The thing that shocks me at the same time it doesn't is when I watch cartoons from the 60s like The Flintstones or The Jetson there some sexist terms. I guess back then it was no big deal because thats how it was and it flew over my head as kid.

Watched all those old shows when i was a kid. Top Cat, Pink Pather (60's and 70's only, they ruined it when they gave him a voice and funky new theme tune from the '80's onwards). The Family Ness was a favourite but doubt that got over to the US. There was a great Laurel and Hardy cartoon on the bbc.

And yes Dick Dastardly and Muttley were scarey but oddly compelling, i always wanted them to win the race and catch that damn pigeon. Same as wanting Tom to finally get Jerry, Sylvester to get Tweety (a really annoying bird) and Wile E. Cayote to get the Road Runner and scoff it down for his tea. I love Looney Tunes, Bugs, Daffy and Foghorn Leghorn being my faves. Oh and Snoopy and the Peanuts crew are still brilliant and make me laugh.

Man the things you remember.

Penny Crayon. The Poddington Peas. Jimbo. Bananaman. Bertha. Stopit and Tidyup. Dangermouse. Henry's Cat. And there was one cartoon on itv which had the characters all shaped as household objects (the policeman was a black boot) and there was a house on top of a hill which was a teapot. It was also a Bank of Scotland kids magazine. I would love to know what that was called.

I could easily go on for hours on this.

I could too. I'm grateful we got Danger Mouse over here. I remember Bananaman, but I didn't know the origin of that one until I bought the last Dandy with Paul in it.

I agree it ruins the whole persona of the Pink Panther and I'm glad I have not seen that version. 

Never heard of Family Ness

The Family Ness is, as you might gather from the title, a scottish cartoon and based on the legend of there being a Loch Ness Monster. It was shown on the bbc throughout the UK i think, not just in Scotland. Here's one of the episodes. Its probably not good now as i was something like 7 years old at the time it was shown.

I love how this thread turned into re-introducing older cartoons! I haven't heard DangerMouse mentioned in a long time - used to love that and Count Duckula.

Let's see...  what have I not revealed already...

I am Canadian.  I am a GIRL, lol, that's probably quite obvious.  I am 29 years old.  I am "artistic" and have been for as long as I can remember, but have yet to find my "niche" although I have tried many.  Lately I have been teaching myself acoustic guitar.  I'm still in the very early stages, but I am very much enjoying it.  I paint, but very rarely...  like a painting every 5 years.  I really want to do it more.  

I grew up around music.  My dad was a musician.  He played guitar, keyboards, and drums (mostly).  He also wrote music, which is something else I have been trying out lately.  

 

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Had to do this in two chunks because my phone is lame..

 

Been a Beatles fan since high school.  Got more into them in the last 5 years.  I've been a "big" Lennon fan for much longer.  Got more into Paul's music since seeing him in concert in November of last year.  I also think he's the most gorgeous creature that ever walked the face of this planet.  heart

I am also a vegetarian and big time animal lover.  Also on that subject, Linda McCartney is my absolute hero.

Oh cool I didn't know you painted. The last time I really focused on drawing was about five years ago.

I never would have thought you were a long-time Lennon fan.  I'm pleasantly surprised.

I finally started a painting!  It's pretty big, I'm trying to take a lot of time on it and just let it flow out naturally.

What about people who don't love the Beatles?

Did Dante reserve a special place in his Inferno for them...?

Probably! Luckily I won't have to go there. I saw Paul in concert back in May and became hooked.

LHL, you speak the truth!

I am glad I took time to read this thread. You are all interesting peeps. I am a 45-year-old university librarian who is just now discovering the wonder that is the Beatles.

Whenever I see Linde, I think of the famous American comedian Paul Lynde (tragically died before his time -- 1982, at the age of 56).  Even young people who never saw him during his heyday in the 70s can (and do) easily dial up YouTubes of his appearances on the game show Hollywood Squares occupying his prestigious post as the "center square".  His one-liners and zingers still bring a grin to my face.

 

Now I can't get his voice out of my head. What a character he was!
