looney tunes redux
Here is something so very cool that I saw thanks to Jerry Beck over at Cartoon Brew. He posted a YouTube video that features a still from all of the over 1000 cartoon shorts from the Warner Brothers Looney Tunes output. It's set to various performers singing and performing the classic Looney Tune theme song, The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down.
What is so neat about this, other than being a time capsule and visual history, is that you can see in short order the change styles and evolving characters. It's a wonderfully hypnotic video. And you may be surprised at just how long the studio continued to put out the great and popular cartoons before closing up the animation department in the late 1960s.Thanks again to Jerry and the YouTuber known as radiobov who created this wonderful video.
Gotta love it.
Well, what did you expect in an opera? A happy ending?
