Saturday Morning Cartoons



If Muslims rioted in the streets over a couple of drawings in a Danish newspaper, a cartoon portraying Arabs as big dumb lummoxes and Napoleonic twerps who ride squeaky camels should really piss somebody off.

Not only is this clip a classic, and one of the most quotable cartoons in the Warner Brothers collection, it's worth watching for nothing more than Daffy's face at the 1:54 mark.

From 1957, here's Chuck Jones's Ali Baba Bunny.

Following the face at 1:54 is the source of one of my favorite WVUM stingers...

Get back in there! Down down down! Go go go! Mine mine mine!

"I'm rich! I'm wealthy! I'm independent! I'm socially secure!"

What are...things a whole lot of stock market investors wish they were saying this week?

"I'm a greedy slob. It's my hobby."

I want that to be my hobby. Wonder if there is a trade magazine for it?
