Questions for You Guys About this Ad--What Was It Made for and What's this Actor's Name?

Hello everybody, Today I'm doiling away at special posts for this blog, doing my homework, and jotting into about seven time intensive posts for Cartoon Research. I've also been working on something specific for this blog. For the past year while balancing college, I've been toiling away at a weblink database for this blog. It's why the blog has been relatively untouched. In the meantime, I've got a question for you guys. Was this the first time the Looney Tunes characters appeared in an advertisement on Television? This was made in 1956 and I'm wondering if this was the first time Bugs was mentioned in a TV commerical. I'm sure they were mentioned in kid's shows using the AAP packages. Also was this a local kid's show host or someone else. I'm wondering who this was in this ad?

A Bill Scott Fan Documentary

Hey everyone! While I continue to toil away at posts for Cartoon Research and a special post for this blog, I just wanted to share this. For the past year I’ve been helping Amber Jones with a fandocumentary on Bill Scott. At first, I was a bit skeptical about her project because most people who Bill knew have already passed so I wasn’t sure there was much to tell. However once she showed me the original audio and photos, I was absolutely amazed. I was absolutely onboard with the whole thing. Most of this stuff I had never heard before and neither have most of you. I was so impressed when I first spoke to her about her passion for Jay Ward that I helped her write sections of the doc, particularly the John Sutherland part. I also promoted the podcast on Mark Arnold’s podcast too! Enjoy and please comment what you think!

Puzzling and Illogical#2--Mickey and the Mice

Well I guess if Pluto and Goofy can coexist, this makes sense too. It seems weirder though. Huckleberry Hound was chased by dogs all the time which never seemed weird.

Old Colorforms Commercial

Someone on youtube posted these and I thought I'd share em here. Here's a Popeye one. Is the dog done by a well known voice actor? He just like a random person's voice slowed down. Here's Bugs Bunny. Wow that set looks off model.

Quick Plug from Me

When was the last time you picked up a brand new comic book and laughed? Been a while right? For me, it's been a while since I've even bought a comic that wasn't fifty years or older. However, this is a must have and I highly reccomend it! Biffle and Shooster, America's favorite fake 1930's comedy duo, are the stars of comic books that came out a while back. These comics have been combined into one brilliant collection titled Biffle and Shooster's Comic Compendium! It's brilliantly written by Mike Kazalah and Will Ryan, who is Shooster to Nick Santa Maria's Biffle.

While you're at it, I also highly recommend you buy their brilliant shorts on DVD. The set includes 5 Biffle and Shooster shorts from the 1930s (well, not really, but yeah they're from the 30s) with everything to love like music, gorillas, Vernon Dent, Cinecolor, and the brilliant work of actors Nick Santa Maria, Will Ryan, and director Michael Schlesinger.
