One of the exhibits at the State Fair this year is a salute to cartoons called, “Get Animated.”  When you walk into the hall, you are slapped in the face with Disney. 

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy Disneyland as much as the next person, but when I think of cartoons, Bugs Bunny and friends have made a bigger impact on my psyche.

Like Jerry Seinfeld, most of my culture (i.e. opera, old movie stars) was learned from watching Looney Tunes.  When I hear the Barber of Seville or Flight of the Valkries, I remember Elmer Fudd being outwitted again and again.

What I like about the above photo is that it’s of the secondary characters most of us know and probably love: 

  • Witch Hazel always cracked me up, “A cup of tea, a cookie, and you-hoo”  
  • That random dog that would scare the crap out of the cat by sneaking up on it and barking like crazy then prancing happily away.
  • The overly polite gophers with a good vocabulary – I’ve seen my mom and her sister act like these two.

Who doesn’t love a trip down memory lane?  I wonder if these cartoon characters can still be found on TV.
