Heroes & Villains of the Animated Kind

If you spent your childhood in the 1960's as I did your reward for a week toiling in the vineyards of the public school system was Saturday Morning Cartoons.

Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Wile E. Coyote, and the like were funny, but even more important to a boy in his pre-teen years were the adventure cartoons. Three of my favorites were Space Ghost, Jonny Quest, and The Herculoids.

If you're from that period, watch these and relive your youth, and if you're a bit younger watch these and see what sparked the imagination of your father or grandfather. Enjoy!

Why Paint Cats is a book brought to my attention when I received e-mailed photos from a friend of painted cats. Not paintings of cats, but cats that had been painted by artists, some at a cost of $60,000.

And finally read what happens when reality rears its Photoshopped head as Snopes steps into the fray.
