Today, nominations for the 2nd annual supes_mv_awards opened. They'll run all of the month of June! That gives you plenty of time to read up and collect your nominations. Please go over, take a gander and bookmark it to nominate!

I'm looking forward to lots of new talent (and old) getting noms.

supes_mv_awards!

And now for something tangentially related... 1943's Super-Rabbit! (dragontail, LJ might get a kick out of this one, too). It's based on the old Fleischer Superman cartoons, mostly, but it's funny as heck. ♥



My daughter watched it for the first time today, and I realized many of you may never have seen it!

Oh! That's one of my all-time favorite Bugs cartoons!! As a kid, I gotta say I never really understood the ending... but I get it now. LOL

Me too! I adore it. It doesn't get as much love in the pantheon of great BB cartoons.

I just know I'm going to have to explain the ending to her, but I also know she's gonna love it :)

Oh, yes. I first saw this one as an adult, so I never even wondered... :D

Great! We need all the nominations we can get. :)

Yes, I do believe EVERYTHING is on YouTube. ;)

Okay, I confess, I geeked out when he came out as a Marine (a real superhero indeed!) and sang the previous version of the Marine Corps Hymn (it now goes "in the air, on land and sea"). :)

There's a Marine brat for ya! *g*

I couldn't stop giggling, I was so tickled at that!

I remember seeing this one when I was younger, and understanding the ending, but that was no doubt because of my background. :)

I remember this one!

Bugs Bunny/Tom and Jerry are my all time favourite cartoons. But it's been a while since I've watched any.

Where on Earth did you find this?

I just did a search for "Super Rabbit" on YouTube! Most of the WB shorts are there now. *in heaven* But we own the first three Golden Collections on DVD. They're expensive, so I can only get one at a time. But I intend to own all of them eventually, however many they release. I actually have about 95% of all of the shorts on VHS tape, which I collected painstakingly myself. :D

The things you'll find on the internet! Wow. I'm tempted to hunt down Bugs on YT. :D

I know how you feel, I spent years trying to tape every Tom and Jerry there was but the sheer volume and my own small attention span I gave up. But I commend you for keeping at it!

Is it me though or does Bugs get taller as the years go by? I mean for example in this short he's very little as opposed to the way he is now. Now he's got giant frogs legs...

I'm reaching?

Bugs' character design didn't really settle into the familiar one we know until about 1948-49. He had only been created in 1940, and he looked HIGHLY different then, too. So 40s cartoons are all over the map stylistically.

But yes, the final version of the character is quite a bit taller. :)

Have I mentioned how much this time of year makes me nervous?

*hides behind Mom*

Probably you've mentioned it... but I wouldn't worry. I'm sure there are goodies for you this time out. *hugs tight*

It just makes me nervous. I hate being up against you guys! *hides*

*little smile* Especially when I know you're kick our ass again! *LOL* ;)

I?

Kick your ass?

In which categories?

Seriously, I haven't written more than one-shots all year. I don't have anything that can even compete...

Last I checked, oneshots can get nommed, Mom. *LOL* And you have had some seriously extraordinary ones in the last year.

And you know, as always, that I consider it an honor to have you beat us. You're the Queen for a reason. *hugs tight*
htbthomas
Jun. 2nd, 2008 01:41 am (UTC)
Yeah, but not in the longer categories, and I doubt any of the non-Clois categories.

*hugs more*

Aww, Bugs Bunny. There isn't enough of him around these days! Great parody though :D Thanks for sharing!

No, there isn't enough of him around. I feel it is my duty to expose my own daughter to the greatness of these cartoons, as well as my students at school!

Definitely! I remember when I was younger I grew up with Looney Toons on the TV, but now they seem to have disappeared completely D: Where have the good times gone!? There needs to be a petition or something to bring them back...

Oh, Bugs Bunny, how I love thee. <3

Thanks for posting - this brought back some wonderful memories. :)

I am a HUGE WB cartoons fanatic, seriously. I could write a quadrillion Wikipedia entries, I swear.

So you're welcome! Anything to keep the love going. ♥

Hee! I have that Bugs 'toon on one of my 'Kryptin' discs. That disc also has Snafuperman and Stupor Duck. ;)

Oh, I had no idea that was on the Kryptin! The other two are cute, too. :)

There's a bootie-load of crackalicious stuff on that Kryptin, let me tell you.

1955 The Adventures of Superpup TV pilot, anyone??

*LOLZ*
