I love cartoons.
Growing up, I anxiously awaited Saturday mornings. Who here remembers the clamation bits that have the jingle “After these messages, we’ll be ri-ght back!” While most of these were pure entertainment, many had deeper meanings for older viewers to interpret. Case in point, Bugs Bunny. Seriously. That dude taught me about the social climate of the day, and that was before I even knew what social climate was.
However, there are certain types of animation that have resonated with me over the years. In my second instalment of the WHAT YOU KNOW Series, I observed patterns in shows I liked and details about each that draw me in to watch and rewatch the respective series.
