Cartoons of yesteryear resemble nothing of their counterparts of today. Computers have replaced hand sketching and gone are the days of the voice overs like those of Mel Blanc and June Foray.
I was not a huge Looney Tune fan although as with most people of my generation, I watched them. What I loved were the half hour cartoons of my youth and I wanted to share some of my favorites with you this week.
Nothing, nada...except that I loved it.
I can't sing the tune, but if I heard it I would tell you right away what it was. I don't know any lines from it except, "Have no fear, Underdog is here". I have never been someone who remembers the minusia of things. My mind remembers things in broad terms and it certainly remembers things I love.

I just went to Wikipedia and am in the midst of a swooooooooooon. I had forgotten almost everything about the characters of this delightful series.
Shoeshine Boy aka Underdog
Sweet Polly Purebred
Simon Bar Sinister
I think I must have loved the quirkiness of this dog and the fact that he was deemed an underdog. I have always held a soft spot in my heart for the underdogs of this world. Do you share my love of this cartoon?
I am going to take the next 5 days and share with you my other favorites. Maybe they are yours too. You'll have to stay tuned to see what mine are...but for today you can share with me your favorites.
