Cartoon Network Rebrand 2002

I guess this must be old if it's from 2002, but I had never recalled seeing it before. At first I thought I was entertained by it simply for nostalgia's sake. But as I watched more and more I realized there was a lot more to it than that. These cartoons WERE all a very important part of my childhood, but what I loved so much about them was their ability to make me laugh without a single line of dialogue. Call me simple, but I can't help but laugh out loud at some good ol' fashioned slap stick. Nothing's funnier than a cartoon slamming into a wall and crushing like an accordion. If nothing else, this serves as an amazing reference for various types of animations (I particularly liked the three panel one where each character sneaks on their tiptoes across the frame).

  1. Sylvester loading himself onto a crossbow with an outstretched iron gauntlet is hysterical. I don't feel like I really appreciated looney toons until later in life and this thing is just like mainlining all the best parts.
