Intelligent, Funny, Well-Drawn
These classic cartoons were (and I think still are) my favorite all-time TV show (I have to admit I do not watch TV on a regular basis, as TV has recently returned to our family after an extended absence--but we watch a plethora of DVD's).

I remember waking up for the 7 AM Central Time showing as a part of my pre-game ritual as a pee-wee football player (and later the 8 AM Eastern Time in Virginia).

The funniest will always be Bugs Bunnie, followed by Daffy Duck. The RR/Coyote was okay, but the dialogue created by Mel Blanc for Bugs/Daffy is the heart of the show.

Later attempts at revival are not the same. The higher frame per second, 1950's animation was the best. The fewer frame drawing of the more recent episodes (along with Bugs' toned down demeanor) are not the same. On the other hand, the 40's episodes are funny, but Bugs doesn't really come into his own until the 50's.

My dad liked Bugs and said he was like Groucho Marx--and I think this is a good analogy. Today's cartoons just ain't the same. NickToons have some good comedy, and so does Dexter's Lab on Cartoon Network. However, the bathroom humor is often carried too far by Nickelodian.

Sit-Com cartoons were okay--I watched a lot of the Flintstones and Jetsons.

After WB, I also liked Bullwinkle (and his co-stars Dudley Dooright, Sherman and Peabody). Roger Ramjet was also hilarious, as well as Beanie and Cecil (especially if one understands the sarcasm).
