    To be perfectly blunt, and quoting a Cartoon Network promo from some 13 years back, there are cartoons we laughed with (Bugs Bunny) and others we laughed at (Cattanooga Cats). We laughed at it in derision because it was, well, lame. The jokes were warmed over, the animation nothing special, and the music emminently forgettable.I have three issues of Gold Key's "Hanna-Barbera Fun-In" with Cattanooga Cats stories in it, and even in that format it was rather pedantic. The best feature of the show was certainly Motormouse & Autocat, with Marty Ingles' hilarious voice of Autocat and some Tom & Jerry-esque comedy.

    Besides, we were a CBS family on Saturday mornings during the 1969-70 season.

    To be perfectly blunt, it is absurd to compare a cartoon that was shown in movie theaters and that was intended for audiences of widely differing ages (Bugs Bunny) to a later T.V. cartoon for younger audiences, such as The Cattanooga Cats. You also need to learn that your value-judgments and opinions are not, well, actual facts.

    With that in mind, I agree with the originator of the thread that the Cats were charming, and a unique product of their time. The psychedelia and Op Art backgrounds were anything but "warmed over", and you really ought to look up the meanings of big words, such as pedantic, before you misuse them.

    By the way, it is both interesting and revealing that your favorite segment, Motormouse & Autocat, was actually the most hackneyed, repetitive, and unoriginal part of the show.

    Lol. So, you never watched the show when you were a child, and yet you're an expert on it!

    Long Live the Cats!
