Animaniacs and Mel Blanc

I recently joined Netflix and the first thing I did was order all the "Animaniacs" shows so that I can introduce them to my kids. They were my favorite cartoons and I think I was already a teenager when they came out. It was a hit! You should hear my children laughing to no end! They all seem to favor different characters. Little buddy seems to love the actual Animaniacs (Yakko, Wacko, and Dot) while Girlie Girl loves Slappy the Squirrel. The Big Guy loves Pinky and the Brain and can do a great imitation of Pinky.

Here's one of my personal favorites, "The Nations of the World" brought to you by Yakko:

I love watching cartoons with my kids. Wait, let me rephrase that. I like watching "good" cartoons with my kids. There is some really terrible stuff that passes for kids cartoons nowadays and I won't watch that. Most of the time, I end up going to the past. Here's this awesome clip of Mel Blanc being interviewed by David Letterman that is very entertaining! It's amazing to hear all those great voices (Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, etc...) coming out of this man!

I am a die hard SpongheBob fan so I understand :)

Beth said...

I had no idea Mel Blanc did all those voices!
Thanks for the cartoon education.

I've never heard of Animaniacs, but I like that clip! Happy cartooning.

Diesel said...

I used to watch the Animaniacs in college all the time.

Mel Blanc is amazing. Letterman wasn't so great with the interviews back then, was he? He looks bored.

Theresa said...

I've never watched the Animaniacs, but that clip was too funny. The interview with Mel Blanc was fantastic, how could anyone do so many voices? Have fun watching those great cartoons with your kids.

Pavel said...

bg: Spongebob rocks!!!

beth: Isn't it cool? He must have been a very funny grandfather, making all those voices at his grandkids birthday parties!

actonbell: Well, then I suggest you join netflix and get yourself the season. You won't regret it!

diesel: They rock, don't they? Wackko was my favorite! I thought the same about David Letterman. He's pretty awesome nowadays but apparently it came from years of experience.

Theresa: They even have them in Spanish!

No rima pero vale la pena...

Pinky and the brain is my fav! We sing the theme song around here all the time! Great post. And I agree cartoons are not as good as they used to be, and I love them still...the good ones that is.

Randy said...

I still love the Warner Brothers cartoons. My oldest son recently became obsessed with the Garfield movie, which we watched several times last weekend. It beats watching the same Blue's Clues episode ad infinitum.

How come I didn't know about that when I was stuggling to pass geography???

Pavel said...

Casdok: Can't let them have ALL the fun, no can I? (smile)

hmbt: "They're Pinky, they're Pinky and the Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain..." Narf!

Randy; Oh, Hi! Blues Clues? I feel for you... I'm glad mine passed that stage, along with the Wiggles...

Susan: You mean you could have memorized that song in order to help you? wow!!! My hat off to ya!

" The site also offers items for sale, including apparel and bags emblazoned with a drawing of a mustachioed cat; I could not find any statistics about how much merchandise the website sells, but the items for sale actually looked pretty good. The first lesson is that life can be humorous and fun again when you make time to play. Use old fabric to create puppets, monsters, and any other creatures that your child can imagine.

If you are exercising every day, the fat you burn
will be harnessed into muscle. Training with intensity does not mean training foolishly; you
must always train within your limits by using an appropriate resistance and exercises that you are capable of doing.
Take note also that you know how to perform the exercise
well to avoid sickness and injuries in the future.

' The picture is just as worrying for youngsters - by 2010, it's predicted 22 per cent of
girls and 19 per cent of boys between the ages of two and 15 will be obese,
with girls under 11 at particular risk. Having some
company can also make the fitness session more fun.

Or maybe you look at it from a monetary standpoint and decide
that Guy Ritchie and Madonna divorce was worse because they were married so
long and have children and there is a lot of money involved.

However there are several troubleshooting steps you need to perform in order
to determine the problem. As a consequence it can be contended the media is directing
many persons astray moving away from what should be its
aim of presenting discerning news and analytic thinking of
pressing topics for this celebrity frippery.
