You can use a good laugh, go ahead and do it......

I've seen all the Loony Tunes/Merry Melodies cartoons a bazillion times, and they still make me laugh! I saw a documentary a long time ago, on the writers and animators that did the Loony Tunes/Merry Melodies cartoons for Warner Bros. They were located in a temporary building on a far-away corner of the WB lot. The WB tour guides were instructed to never take a lot tour anywhere near that building. Why? Can you imagine what the people on the tour would have thought, if they saw the writers acting out the parts of the cartoon characters in the parking lot in front of their building, as the animators sat with their illustration boards, capturing the action?

Mel Blanc's tombstone - the Hollywood Forever Memorial Park, Los Angeles, CA. The voice of 90% of the WB cartoon characters, and also the voice of Barney Rubble, Mr. Spacely, and countless other animated characters in shorts and commercials. Is this a cool tombstone, or what?
