I feel like making a list of theatrical shorts while I still have computer access. Leaving "King-Size Canary" out.

Warner - "Feed the Kitty"
Disney - "Donald's Happy Birthday"
MGM - "Dumb-Hounded"
Flesicher- "Blow Me Down!"
Lantz- "The Barber of Seville"

Hopefully I won't have to explain these.

Christ, this thread is dusty.

So since Thad and nostalgiafaggotry in general are making me disillusioned as all hell when it comes to Looney Tunes (even when I don't have class or anything else to do at 12, I haven't seen the CN airings since July), I need some shorts to rewatch so I can restore what I liked about Bugs and Daffy without being reminded of their more unseemly devotees.

Well, it doesn't have Bugs, but how about the Duck Dodgers show? The elitists don't remember it, the newer fans have never heard of it, and it isn't overplayed at all.

Daffy
It's not working. D: All I keep thinking is "Why do people keep saying Mel Blanc has a thousand voices? The wrestler sounds just like Taz." What am I becoming?

I liked it back then. The problem is the memories are too vivid for a rewatch to do its deed (can still remember the Green Lantern episode and the Samurai Jack parody).

Maybe you're just burned out on the franchise for the time being. Give it a little, maybe try watching "Duck Amuck" or "The Old Grey Hare" again, and all should be well.

SUPER late, but I just realized that Crusher wasn't even voiced by Mel. 'twas a John T. Smith role.

Also, this thread can always use a bump.

So I'm trying to figure out Robot Chicken; it's got some stop motion action figure animation - reminds me of MTV Celebrity Deathmatch with some heavy 1980s references, like we need more Star Wars and Indiana Jones.

The Best of Warner Bros. Animation Collections will be released throughout the year in three separate animation sets.  Each features animation at its best in three key brands Hanna-Barbera  (May), Looney Tunes (June) and DC Comics (August).

Not sure if this is the right place to put this, but oh well. These sound awesome.

So I had a teacher this last semester who I really got a long with, and I talked to her about comics, movies, shows, etc. I told her I would try to send her a list of various animated series she might like (and so I can show off the medium). She's overall pretty open minded, although she doesn't really like a lot of gore.  I made sure to include several superhero shows since she seemed to enjoy those. So far I have:

Batman: TAS
Superman: TAS
The Spectacular Spider-Man
Avengers: EMH
Cowboy Bebop
Gargoyles
Monster

Any other suggestions?

Is Trigun really that gory? It's been ages since I've seen the show, but I remember it being rather tame on that front.

And yeah, it's probably a good idea to recommend Batman and Superman first. Batman Beyond is best appreciated if you're familiar with B:TAS, same with Justice League for the three shows.

Are you only showing off action cartoons? If not...

WHERE ARE THE LOONEY TUNES?

But I'm guessing from your list you are trying to introduce her to some good action cartoons, in that case I recommend:

Dragonball  (NOT Z, the original).
Trigun
Justice League
Batman Beyond
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
Yu Yu Hakusho
Samurai Champloo
The Big O
X Men: Evolution

That's all I can think of that I can think of to recommend to someone whose tastes I don't really know very well. If she likes good, respectably mature action cartoons I think these would be worth recommending to her, unless you feel otherwise.

Yeah, I really need to add Trigun. I recommended it to everyone anyway. And it was pretty tame.

I'm assuming she's already familiar with Looney Tunes.

All good choices, and I'm looking for animated series in general. Maybe some stuff some people haven't seen.

Well, if she hasn't watched King of the Hill she really should because it's the best animated show made for adults ever made. I forgot to mention Batman: The Brave and the Bold earlier, which is also a really good superhero show.

Otherwise, for comedy cartoons, I can confidently suggest:
Rocko's Modern Life
The Angry Beavers
Ducktales
Futurama
American Dad

I'd love to recommend more unusual choices, but I feel nobody here really seems to share my taste in "zany" type comedies, so I doubt that she would.  :sweat:
