I've been reliving my love of Bugs and company recently on YouTube and happened to catch that recent Chuck Jones biopic on AMC to further spark my interest. This morning we went to try a new brunch place only to find that one of their draws is non-stop Looney Tunes on a big screen! Needless to say, I couldn't keep up with any conversation and my girlfriend and my sister had to practically drag me out of there.
I remember back to growing up in the late 80s when this stuff was on in four-hour blocks on Saturdays and always after school. Although I think there's nothing like it now, I do remember having some definite favorites and absolute channel changers when I was young. Foghorn Leghorn and Yosemite Sam were always a treat to watch, undeniable. Sylvester and Tweety always turned me off though. I don't know if this is weird to say about Looney Tunes, but I think it was just because there was too much speech impediment going on in that one. Plus the amount of time Tweety spent inside Sylvester's mouth. Gross.
