Question for April 24, 2019

 

Scooby-doo, Power Rangers or Bugs Bunny?

 

Of those, Bugs. But the Roadrunner is better than any of them.

Bugs Bunny and all of its unvarnished humour is what I grew up on, and Scooby Doo as well. Power Rangers are just a ripoff of Voltron, and I will stand by that opinion.

I may need to revise my list in some way. 

 

Alas, the wiley Wile E. Coyote. For him, every day  is a Monday...

And that's it, the ballet dancers with their coloured motorcycle helmets and spandex didn't appeal to me.

I’d have to say it’s based on my age.

Younger would be Bugs Bunny et al. 

As I got a bit older, Scooby Doo.

 

Power Rangers n/a.

Do you carry a pocket knife?

 

Ditto Zink: Always at work, never at other times.

 

Like others have said, the horrific recent rise in knife crime seems to show some real malaise in our society.

Scooby-Doo.

Bugs  Bunny is a VERY close second, though.

That other nonsense isn't even in the running.

Bugs Bunny.  First cartoon I ever saw.  My dad would wake me up when I was 4-5 and would carry me to the living room to watch it.  We lived in Sweden at the time and I guess the time difference from wherever it was being aired meant it was after my bedtime.  I'd have a good cuddle with dad with some giggles and the hi-jinks on the tv and then he'd carry me back to bed. 

That memory made a crappy morning after a long sleepless night good.  :winkthumbs:

THUNDERCATS HOOOOOOOOO!!!!

 

 

Why are all the shows I watched when I was little actually super terrible? Like, the original Voltron was just, awful. And Thundercats was worse!

If I must, of those three, I probably watched more Scooby than the others, due mostly to sheer ubiquity. I also watched a LOT of the other two, and I'd have to say Bugs and the rest of the Looney Tunes crew are the objective "best" of the bunch.

 

But the only real answer, obviously, is TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES!

...yes, and Voltron was just a rip-off of BeastKing Go-Lion and something called Dairugger, which were likely based on something else. Nothing wrong with standing on the shoulders of (mechanized, heavily thematic, combining) giants!

Well, Voltron was a bizarre Frankensteinian mish-mash of a show never meant to exist in English, built with only a vague understanding of Japanese. All things considered, it could've been a lot worse.

 

Thundercats was a long-form toy commercial... Like He-Man, Transformers and GI-Joe, the only long-term plot consideration was the introduction of new characters or equipment in order to justify new action figures. Again, that the show was as good as it was is a little surprising.

 

Looney Tunes has such staying power because each "episode" is tightly written and self contained. Some of the humor has aged poorly, but most of it is pretty universal (even their specific send-ups didn't require too much cultural knowledge... If you knew only that some people in England fight with sticks and movies about that exist, or that some theater involves over-the-top costumes and bombastic music, it didn't matter if you knew nothing in particular about Robin Hood and Errol Flynn, or opera and "The Barber of Seville"), and it was almost always of excellent production quality, from soup to nuts.
