Toon Variety

Jerry Beck weighs in on the top ‘toons of the past 100 years for Variety today.

His list follows (in cowardly alphabetical order):

Bugs Bunny

Betty Boop

Felix the Cat

The Flintstones

Mr. Magoo

The Pink Panther


Porky Pig

The Simpsons


Pretty good I’d say, although I’d pick Daffy over Porky any day.

Whatcha think? (Noting of course that Mickey Mouse is in the top 100 icons of all time.)

Cartoon Filth

The Parents Television Council’s president, L. Brent Bozell, had this to say about Fox’s Sunday night’s “family friendly” comedies:

“Families should not be deceived,” he said. “The top three worst shows all contain crude and raunchy dialogue with sex-themed jokes and foul language. Even worse is the fact that Hollywood is peddling its filth to families with cartoons.”

Bozell later clarified that he prefer parents peddle filth to their children themselves.

He also refused to comment on rumored photos of himself and Archie Comics’ Veronica “doing the Jughead.”
