Flip the Frog in Room Runners (1932)

I have a growing respect for the old black 'n whites from the 1930s.

Hey folks! I picked up a copy of Animaniacs: Volume 3 on DVD the other day, I hope to have a review up soon!
Finally I can comment on a scene that has always left me wondering "how did they get away with that?"
In the Minerva Mink cartoon, "Meet Minerva", a frog does a wild take that closely ressembles a..... well, you can judge it for yourself.
Here's how the scene looks in action:

New T-Formers Toon in 08!

Check out this scanned article that has surfaced on the web sporting the new animated-design of Optimus Prime from the upcoming Transformers: Animated!
It's the '80s all over again, isn't it?

Roger Rabbit Tex Avery Tribute?

I suspect that it's simply a tribute to the cartoon king, or maybe pure cartoon-plagerism.
Check out these 2 screencaps from Tex Avery's Droopy cartoon "Double Trouble" and Roger Rabbit's cartoon "Tummy Trouble".

According to SCI FI Wire, Cullen is reviving his Eeyore career once again for the new show, My Friends Tigger & Pooh.

My Roadrunner Pics

I recently came across a Roadrunner at a car show out of town.
I'm not really a "gear-head" but if I was to choose a classic car to own, it would have to be the Roadrunner. Just for the cartoon buff in me. The final decal had a copyright of Warner Bros & Seven Arts.

This was the only theatrical cartoon created starring the 2 stars from Disney's The Lion King.
This 1995 short was played in front of the film, Tom & Huck. It's not available on DVD, but it was featured on the VHS "The Best of Roger Rabbit".
