Classic cartoons such as these should not be for the exclusive viewing rights of children however. Adults can still revel in the innocent, glorious humour and even identify with certain characters; the everyday frustrations of Daffy Duck (one of my favourite cartoon characters ever by the way) and the never-say-die attitude and pure determination of Wile E Coyote being two examples.
As Saturday morning television in the UK now seems to be obsessed with showing various celebrity chefs cooking pieces of pork in numerous ways, I think the time is right to relive the days of old and bring back Saturday cartoons.
Join me here on The Stu View for lots of animated brilliance from the likes of Bugs Bunny, Popeye, Daffy Duck, Hong Kong Phooey and Scooby Doo. There will be a cartoon show one Saturday every month.
I know today is Sunday but, for today, just pretend it's yesterday (eh?)
The cartoons for this month have something in common; they are both two-handers. The first, Bunker Bunny, features just Bugs Bunny and Yosemite Sam (both voiced by the legendary Mel Blanc), whilst Shuteye Popeye sees the mighty sailor having just a resourceful mouse for company.
Sit back and enjoy...

Now, if you're interested folks, Daffy has some rather marvellous gift ideas for you...
