"The Powerpuff Girls"

Don't call them the Powderpuff Girls. They don't like it!

And you don't want to make them mad...do you?

I remember watching The Jetsons and getting very excited about the future .. I definitely thought we'd be flying around in spaceship/briefcases by 2000 Mad

Tom and Jerry was classic .. I always felt bad for poor Tom.

Underdog Theme:

When criminals in this world appear,
And break the laws that they should fear,
And frighten all who see or hear,
The cry goes up both far and near for...
Underdog! (Underdog!)
Underdog! (Underdog!)
Speed of lightning! Roar of thunder!
Fighting all who rob or plunder!
Underdog! (hoo-rah-ah-ah-ah)
Underdog! Underdog!!


and remember! His alter ego was that of the loveable and humble shoeshine boy!

Betty Boop (de doop)      Sat May 08, 2010 9:57 am Reply with quote

I'm sure that they were repeats because I'm not quite that old but I always liked "Betty Boop". She had such an outgoing personality and was simply gushing with confidence! Exactly what I hoped I'd grow up to be like!

Blondie vs. Betty Boop      Wed Jun 09, 2010 7:13 am Reply with quote

Betty Boop was a party girl wasn't she? A lot of people don't realize that Blondie was originally like that in the comics. It was only after a while that she met Dagwood, settled down, and had kids.

Sounds pretty much like a lot of our lives. Have a swinging time when you're young and then get serious (but hopefully still get wild once in a while).

Bear Family Cartoon....Quite Old? Anyone Else Recall?      Tue Jul 27, 2010 9:37 pm Reply with quote

The cartoon was beautifully animated and had that special '30's or '40's "Merry Melodies" feeling.
The texture was rich with shadows that reminded me of Disney's "Snow White."

The cartoon featured a bear family:
Mama Bear, meek and an "Edith Bunker"-like dingbat
Papa Bear, fiesty and very short, angry & impatient most of the time
and Baby Bear, very big, not too smart, but sweet and loving

The scene from one episode I remember best involved rain and the Mama Bear singing "Pitter, Patter, Pitter, Patter, Listen to the Rain..."

Although I grew up in the '60's, many very old cartoons were being shown on TV...
I suspect that, originally, all those beautiful shorts had been shown in theatres at first.

Well..back to the question at hand....Does anyone recall this cartoon an the name?

-With Anticipation....My Thanks.

Looney Tunes - The Three Bears      Wed Jul 28, 2010 7:32 am Reply with quote

Cartoonist Chuck Jones who worked for Warner Brothers studios introduced Mama Bear, Papa Bear, and "Junior" Bear characters in a series of cartoons in 1944 titled, "Bugs Bunny and the Three Bears". Bug played the role of "Goldilocks". The Three Bears were back from 1948-1951 in another series of cartoons on their own without Bugs Bunny.

In the 1990s The Three Bears returned again as recurring characters on the cartoon TV series, "Tiny Toon Adventures". They've also had brief cameos in the Looney Tunes movies, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" and "Space Jam". In another film, "Looney Tunes: Back In Action" they were American tourists in Paris.

Bears Must Have Been a Favorite Theme!      Thu Jul 29, 2010 3:43 pm Reply with quote

Thank you to the site Admin for clarification and putting me on the right track!

Apparently, I was mixing up two differnent memories of mine:
First - the Bear Family by Chuck Jones (Mama, Papa, and Junior) &
Second- the scene involving the rain and singing, which was, I found, in a cartoon labeled as "MGM Bear Family Rainy Day". Here the family consists of Father, Mother, and the baby bear is named Wilbur.

As I watched the cartoon...I remembered how I felt as a child.
I suppose this is just a testament as to how our memories just starting linking things together from our past.

Dune Buggies - A Favorite      Sat Sep 11, 2010 1:21 am Reply with quote

Reading through this topic came upon the posting on "Speed Buggy" and it brought to mind another show: "Wonder Bug"

Although it was very obvious that "Wonder Bug" was a puppet on close-ups when shown "speaking" - I think that is what made "Wonder Bug" lovable. I remember that that was the only dune buggy show I liked - due to its cuteness factor!
