Walt & Jesse's Magnificent Meth Lab
What if Breaking Bad had been launched by Cartoon Network? JabaToons imagined the content of the AMC show with the animation style of Cartoon Network's glory years. It is not for children, as if that isn't totally obvious. This is just the intro, but people are already asking for full episodes. Yeah, the animation idea has been done before, but not in this particular way. -via Boing Boing#BreakingBad #CartoonNetwork #cartoon
Cartoons These Days Are Bizarre and Unseemly
Alasdair Beckett-King, a comedian who is very English, exhibits the grumpy old man inside all of us once we pass the age of 30 or so. At that point, popular youth culture becomes weird. Or perhaps, to borrow a phrase from Douglas Adams, it goes “against the natural order of things.”Were the cartoons of our youth actually that good? They certainly encouraged us to buy toys, as advocated by The Transformers, and villains had preposterous motivations, like on Captain Planet. But we did beat the communists, right?-via Super Punch#AlasdairBeckettKing #cartoonP.S. I’ll save you a Google search. No, Professor Meatdog is not an actual cartoon aired these days. But I’d watch it if it was.
Mel Blanc Yelled a Lot
Mel Blanc was known as "The Man of a Thousand Voices," but they were all his own. Blanc spent six decades on radio and became famous for providing the voices of Bigs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Foghorn leghorn, Yosemite Sam, Marvin the Martian, and other Looney Tunes characters. He also worked for Hanna-Barbera as the voice of Barney Rubble on The Flintstones and Mr. Spacely on The Jetsons. In all those years, he took care of his voice, but he did what needed to do for a cartoon character, and that included a lot of yelling. You might remember these characters being upset in their more stressful moments.
