The other is about a cat trying to catch a bird who is drinking at a birdbath. The details escape me but I remember the cat getting caught in his own ingenious bird catching device, being covered in quick drying cement and becoming a birdbath.


Perhaps you mean "It's Hummer Time"?

"No, not Happy Birthday!!!"

That's it. Thanks.

One of my favorites was "Porky Pig's Feat" where Porky and Daffy try to get out of the apartment house, followed by "Chow Hound" where bulldog has the recurring line "What...no gravy!" Classic!!!

My favorite is the one I once laughed at more than any other I'd ever seen. I grew up on these cartoons in the '60s and '70s, but I didn't see "Baby Bottleneck" until the mid '70s one afternoon on the old WNEW channel 5 out of New York. I was around fifteen at the time but I was nearly rolling on the floor and must have continued laughing for five minutes after it ended. To this day I have yet to laugh so much at a cartoon.

"That boy's so dumb he thinks a bowlin' pin is somethin' you write with!"

I believe the line was, "That boy's so dumb he thinks a pig pen is something to write with!" I couldn't name the cartoon.

I agree with those who've said there are just too many good 'toons to pick one. My brothers and I grew up quoting all of them, and dropping a line today will put us all in stitches. Still, there is a scene from Foghorn Leghorn's "Little Boy Boo" that has always stood out for me—

Foghorn is teaching the egghead kid to play hide-and-seek. Stowing himself in a feed bin, Foghorn quips, "That boy 'ud have to use a slide rule to find me in here!" The kid does exactly that—afterwards running off in the opposite direction, digging a hole in the ground, and popping Leghorn out of hiding at the end of the shovel. Foghorn protests that he's really hiding over there! The kid waves his paper at the rooster, which Foghorn shrugs off, "Yeah, I know: figures don't lie. But still—one side, boy!"

Foghorn pauses just short of opening the feed bin, worriedly saying, "I better not look. I just might be in there!"

This scene brilliantly captures the absurd turn mainstream physics has taken in the 20th century.

I haven't seen Looney Toones in years and never picked them up on DVD. So my memory isn't all that great.

Some of my favorites were the "scary" shorts. Daffy Duck in a nightmarish scene with all these scary monsters. Bugs with the large Hairy Orange monster. The witch that turned beautiful. My gods the look on Bugs face when it looked like he was going to be carved up! Bugs and a mad scientist.

One of the biggest laughs ever was a Roadrunner short where they are playing the Lone Ranger theme, (yeah I know it's classical) and the coyote smacks right into a wall painted to look like a tunnel.

Of course all the favorites, Duck Dodgers, What's Opera Doc, Bugs, Daffy and the genie treasure, (It's mine, all mine! Whahahaha!!!!!) A Porky short where a character was singing opera outside his window and he couldn't get any sleep. Another short where a cat chases a mouse and a dog chases the cat.

Favorite cartoon? No way could I pick just one.

- "Bugs and Thugs" ("All right, rabbit. Where's Rocky? Where's he hiding?" "He's not in this stove.")

- "Duck! Rabbit! Duck!" (Perhaps my favorite of Jones' hunting trilogy of the early 50s. Maybe it's the signs.)

- "Feed the Kitty" (Funny and very sweet.)

- "Porky Pig's Feat" ("We sure showed that overstuf--" "What?!" "Yipe." "M-me too. Yipe.")

- "Buckaroo Bugs" ("Roses are red/violets are pink/flowers smell good/but you sure s...I sure what?" "Stink, you fool! Stink!")

- "Fool Coverage" (There were a lot of great Daffy/Porky cartoons. This probably ties with the aforementioned "Porky Pig's Feat" as my favorite. "And one baby zebra!")

And bunches more.

I didn't realize Looney Tunes were available on BluRay. Are they remastered? Cleaned up in anyway? What are the best collections to get?

LMAO! Those were the days. Modern animators don't have a clue what makes a character or a scene funny.

Sad but true. And No One has even come close to the late, great Mel Blanc. Not even in the same universe!

June Foray was also incredible.

I could go on and on about how much I love these cartoons. Picking a favorite cartoon is almost impossible. My favorite character, however, is Yosemite Sam. He was always ticked off and that made him funnier.

Favorite cartoons?

Anything with Sam and an animal. There is one with a camel, one with an elephant, and one with a dragon. There might be more. "Ya mule!"

And Daffy as Robin Hood is one of the funniest things ever. Period.

Or how about Bugs floating down the river, he passes a sinister looking castle with a neon sign that says, EVIL SCIENTIST. That's hysterical right there!


Or Bugs playing cards with Blaque Jacque Shellaque. "Can I stay on just one card?" "Sure! Sure!" "OK! Twenty-one!"

As I said, I could go on and on.

Don't forget the other message the sign flashed; BOO. It alternated between the two. Truth in advertising, I 'spose. wink
