I like the fact that the Tom and Jerry show is on in the afternoons.  I might have to grab a grape soda, a bowl of pretzels, and try to relive a part of my youth.

/But it won't be the same unless the Empire Carpeting commercial is shown every twenty minutes.

They're still shown all the time, but I have a feeling the dude died or got too old to do the ads because they only have the strange-looking computer animated version of him in the commercials now.

Scooby Doo died the second they became real monsters and aliens.

It's last gasp was the Thirteen Ghosts of Scooby Doo.

This.  But the "What's New, Scooby Doo?" series was well done and stuck to the right formula.

I just hope they don't do Loony Toons like they have in the past. It ended up being like Adventure Time and Regular Show - geared far more towards teens and young adults than it was towards kids.

Of course, we need some good old fashioned propaganda Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. Those WWII cartoons were hillarious, and horribly racist.

I would like them to bring back Loonatics Unleashed. Those guys were extreme to the max.

Still waiting for Disney to bring back DuckTales. Alan Young's not getting any younger!

Back in 2000, Disney had some pretty awesome Animation and Live Action shows, including a few that got  really dark beyond the level of dark comedy. (In a heartbeat was one. Disney show that dealt with a LOT of death and the main character's way of coping with it. There wasn't very much comedy in it.)

I miss old Disney.

A comprehensive DVD would be adequate. Packaged with a rom of the game of course. I believe the game was redone a couple years back (Same play, added levels, fresh graphics).

Scooby Doo Mystery Incorporated was pretty cool. It was self mocking and they had Harlan Ellison guest on an episode.

To me, that was the golden age. So many parental bonuses that I never got until I got older.

Freakazoid was filled with them too. Thankfully, Hub has continued that tradition with much of their animation geared towards older preteens and teens.

CN took it to 11 with Adventure Time and Regular Show.

The Empire guy was apparently named Lynn Hauldren and worked at a advertising firm before founding his own firm. He also apparently sang in barbershop quartets. He died in 2011 at 89. TMYK.

Ya, my nostalgia for 'get home from school' television is Animaniacs, a little freakazoid, and the Batman series.  Then cartoon network started up with the Toonami or whatever it was, or more likely my podunk town finally got the channel, and I was introduced to all sorts of anime (super-high quality stuff like DBZ!) and other things.

I just turned my grandson on to the orginal Bugs Bunny, Road Runner and Tweety Bird cartoons. He instantly became a huge fan. So a note to CN, You cannot improve on perfection!!!

What aboiut CN doing a decent DC series or two instead of that computer animated crap? I can't be the only one that hated the last Green Lantern series and the new Batman reboot.

Just as long as its not live action shows. CN Real was one of the dumbest and biggest examples of Network Decay since MTV.

I was digging Katana (and her relationship with Alfred) on that show, but Bats himself left me ridiculously underwhelmed.

Which reminds me, if they aren't bringing back the superb Young Justice and they still want to have some Bat-action just do a proper Outsider series; you can have Batman himself in it as much or as little as you want really.

Go watch "Rick and Morty" while you're waiting.  It's farking hilarious.

It will still be difficult to measure up to the standards of the original version of Looney Tunes, although Animaniacs and Tiny Toon Adventures did an amazing job of doing so. I just wonder how they will handle Speedy Gonzales and his friends and relatives (all of whom were portrayed as slow-witted and lazy, unlike many of the Mexicans and other Latinos I have known over the last 15 years). And good luck finding voice actors who can do Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, and Foghorn Leghorn as well as Mel Blanc.

 will star Bugs Bunny in a compilation of shorts with well-known characters such as Yosemite Same and Wile E. Coyote, as well as new characters.

That should be interesting.

Among the other 11 new originals and acquired programming is the network's first-ever 10-part miniseries Over the Garden Wall, with Elijah Wood (Lord of the Rings trilogy), Collin Dean (The War at Home), and Melanie Lynskey (Two and a Half Men)

That could be cool.

For some reason Boomerang recently removed classic old Tom & Jerry from its 1:30 a.m. (maybe 12:30, I can't exactly recall) time slot. This distressed me greatly.

Loves me some the late-1940s early 1950s T&J, mainly for the artwork, but also the "plots," which, such as they were, are more solid, in my opinion.

Early animators really knew how to draw splashing water, that's all I'm saying.

Maybe they could have a team of Hispanic writers who love the character to give him that love they feel for him and his characters. He apparently is really popular in the Latin community, so perhaps some people with the "street cred" could pull it off.

Rule One for programming Cartoon Network: Is it a cartoon? Or a live action that's about cartoons? No? Well does it at least have puppets or stop motion characters? No? Then tell the guy pitching it to piss up a rope.
