Writer's Block: Looney times

What was your favorite childhood cartoon, and why?

Probably the really early 30's Max Fleischer ones; Koko the Clown, and the b&w betty Boops and Popeyes. They were so wonderfully surreal and anarchic. I especially loved the ones with popular musicians on film with the cartoon characters. i still watch them with delight today.

Good Fun...

just discovered this today. Unfortunately the sketchbook project is closed for this year, but you can still get into the fiction one and some others. It costs to enter, but it does look entertaining.

Last night's TUDORS actually gave us some gruesome pus-squirting giant leg ulcer moments, with Henry sweating and 'Arrrgh!' ing a lot, while courtiers clucked. Despite all this, he still seems to have no problem riding, or bonking the squealing Katherine Howard.
