This, if only for the actors including (Sir) David Jason: http://www.filmandtvfavourites.com/...t=WIN1IC5617&gclid=CNXKyP_DyZoCFcISzAodW2lkEQ

Whacky Races , Hanna - Barbera. After the movies Monte Carlo or Bust (aka Those Daring Young Men in their Jaunty Jalopies :roll: ) and The Great Race. Scripts and animations were done by some of the Looney Tunes crews, who were, er ex_Disney.. Great fun.

Top Cat
The show was renamed Boss Cat (with a crude title card) when it was first aired on BBC1 because Top Cat was the name of a brand of cat food. And based on Bilko,or Phil Silvers, with some of the voices transferring.

Could have some fun with this one, an' all :eek:

Roobarb and Custard (BBC).
Possibly one of the most surreal and 'off the wall' cartoons ever made in my opinion.
I particularly liked the birds who were constantly taking the piss out of the proceedings at any opportunity.

Brilliant.
:D

Yep LPJ, great music and it was the humour that done it...
There's a Site here: http://www.80scartoons.co.uk/roobarb2.php

Who's this then?
********and his ineffectual sidekick, Penfold. A resident of a postbox in Baker Street, London, the superspy and his sidekick battle against the evil toad Baron Silas Greenpack and his crow lackey Stiletto. David Jason, again.

It was years before I found out that "pugwash" was an Australian phrase for a Blow job, but with names like "Master bates","seamen Staines"and "Roger the cabin boy" i am surprised it ever got aired.

Danger mouse was wasted on kids, most of the best jokes would have gone strait over their little heads.

There is a persistent urban legend, originating in the now-defunct UK newspaper the Sunday Correspondent, which ascribes sexually suggestive names - such as Master Bates, Seaman Staines, and Roger (meaning to have sex with) the Cabin Boy - to Captain Pugwash 's characters. John Ryan successfully sued both the Sunday Correspondent and The Guardian newspapers in 1991 for printing this legend as fact.

There was no Roger the cabin boy or master bates

Remember these DM lines?

What's this? Will the Baron have the last laugh? Are our heroes doomed? Can they get to the bottom of this mystery before they reach the bottom? If not, will this show end early?

Penfold: [a bell rings] Someone's at the door, DM.
Dangermouse: Well see who it is.
[pause]
Dangermouse: Well?
Penfold: It's an officer, DM. He gave me this note.
Dangermouse: Well, what does it say?
Penfold: Uh..."You have been fined 99 bicycle clips, go directly to jail, do not collect 200 pounds... who's that naughty boy there?"

some of the writing for warner brothers cartoons is still as sharp as a pin over half a century later... disney cartoons were always pants by comparison.

modern cartoons, it's got to be Ren & Stimpy. and Beavis & Butthead for the ultimate put down, while the two of them were watching a Bon Jovi video -

'hey, do you remember when this guy was really cool?'
'uhhhh...no.'
