old school.

ok, so my son has a new favorite cartoon--and when I say new, I'm definitely referring to the favorite, not the cartoon. That's right, Conner's gone old school, and he can't get enough of Tom & Jerry! Oh, and I'm talkin' the vintage episodes, too--not the new stuff.

I'm lovin' it, too, 'cause I grew up on that stuff... those cartoons are great, and they're packed with references to music and the arts and such, you know? There's a whole episode based around a Classical piano piece with Jerry terrorizing Tom while he's trying to perform the piece--and then there's the whole "Is You Is or Is You Ain't My Baby" tune in the one episode. Come on. I know it dates me, but I'm gonna say it: they don't make cartoons like they used to... my boy's got taste! :)

Tom and Jerry rocks!

Hey, how come your profile says that your industry is accounting? Is that a subtle reference to holding one another accountable? If so, clever. If not . . .huh? :)

No, Kelley... nothing clever--it's just that none of the preferred categories I would have selected were there, so I just left it on the default. I just found 'Arts' though, so I changed it.

Although I used to dream about crunching numbers all day as a kid... :)

Amazing. My 7 year-old, Joe, has been watching Tom and Jerry cartoons for the past two weeks, and he's been absolutely cracking up.

I always loved them when I was a kid, and some friends loaned us 4 dvds of the archives. It's almost as much fun for me to be in another room, hearing his laughter.

So now, I have to find a set of the old Roadrunners.

Old Cartoons rock!! Really though, what is with the animated stuff now? Some if the cartoons weird me out these days. Tom and Gerry, Looney Tunes, and Roadrunner are my favorites.
