I don't know how many of you are cartoon junkies like I am, but for those of you who are...

Who's seen Courage the Cowardly Dog?? I think its one of the best cartoons since Sliced Bread (you remember that one, don't you??).

Anyway, I don't really have a connection between the show and Macs. Except that Courage has a computer in the show that likes to make fun of him in a kinda creepy voice. Maybe someone here can make the connection for me.

Do anime count as cartoons? I guess so really, although that's probably not the direction this thread was intended to take..... :)

heh, Courage is the best. I especially like the episode with the alien chickens with blazing red eyes. :D

Cartoons suck. I'd much rather read the sunday comics than watch 30mins of advertising for usless toys.

What fargin' cartoons are you watching??? Pikimon or what ever the heck they call them???

Just like every other network show, network cartoons pander to ratings and advertisers. The cartoon network is where its at these days. Not only do they play classic cartoons like WB (bugs, daffy, etc., etc. ) and Hanna Barbera (Tom and Jerry, Quickdraw, etc.), but they have an excellent lineup on their own cartoons.

Dextor's Lab, Samurai Jack, Powerpuff Girls, Courage, Jonny Bravo, etc... They are all very intelligent and funny cartoons. Plus they make fun of a lot of current pop culture. Sticking it to the man, baby!

I highly recommend checking them out if you ever get a chance. You know whats great to do during the ads??? Hit the mute button and check the MacRumors boards. Works for me.

Comics do rule, though. I loved Calvin and Hobbes and have a few of their book compilations.

Then I need a better file hosting system. :D

Anyone know of good file hosting services that actually let you post .jpg and .gif images? (unlike angelfire, tripod, geocities, et al)

and not itools either. :D I already have an account and am sick of the photoalbum templates.
