Remembering Cartoon’s


(Beep Beep zip tang). It is Saturday Morning and I have suddenly waxed nostalgic, remembering my childhood and how many Saturday morning’s were spent in front of the television watching a veritable smorgasbord of cartoon’s. From ” The Bug’s Bunny RoadRunner Hour”, to “The Jetson’s”  or “The Wacky Racer’s”  etc.

Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner

Nowadays the cartoon’s seem too adult and violence is defined differently somehow. Seeing Wile E Coyote blow himself up time after time with the help of Acme, just doesn’t stir up the same images for me, as seeing some one decapitated nowadays. This irony of somehow rating violence (as if violence back in the day were an innocent violence) probably seems absurd to some.

I guess it was more about us as a culture then. Yes there was, and is, evil in the world but I was only 10.
