This entry was a little anemic, but there's more to come!


  1. No mention of "One Froggy Evening" in the Looney Tunes? A shame- that's always been my absolute favorite cartoon short, puts me in hysterics every time I watch it.

    1. I always found it kind of sad and slightly overrated. Same with "What's Opera Doc" which is a legit classic for what it does but doesn't do it as much for me.
