Th-th-that’s Not All, Folks!

April 3, 2014

A quick apology to fans, friends, regular readers and to those of you who just randomly picked this up...even if you have no idea what I’m talking about. Last week’s article ended with the promise to “put a chainsaw in a Subaru and share the car buying experience.” Alas, this writer has fallen prey to a virus that has been sweeping the local area. But fear not, we shall fill this page and your minds with a Chainsaw Classic and pick up where we left off next week. ~ Saw

What has happened to Saturday morning cartoons? Cartoons aren’t really funny anymore and wasn’t that was the whole point? Add to that they’re mindless, and kids don’t learn anything from them. Personally, as a kid I was highly entertained and learned many lessons in life, from a rabbit, a pig, some birds and a coyote, better known to the general public as the Looney Tunes. You may be questioning, what prey tell dear Chainsaw could we possibly learn from cartoons?

Well Doc, it’s like dis...

Bugs Bunny- Taught us that a quick wit and a good sense of comedic timing is the best way to get out of a bad situation.

Daffy Duck- Showed us that ego will get you nowhere, but it’s OK to just cut lose and go nuts sometimes.

Wile E. Coyote (c) Waner Brothers

Porky Pig- Use your disadvantage to your advantage. Porky, turned a speech impediment into the most recognized and copied show-ender of all time.

Pepe le Pew- Everybody needs somebody to love. Don’t judge a book by its odor.

The Tasmanian Devil- Violence and brute strength are not bad qualities, but brains help.

Tweety Pie- Size doesn’t matter, and cuteness will have dogs and old ladies on your side.

Sylvester- Never stack furniture to reach your goal, look for stability.

Elmer Fudd- Guns are dangerous.

Yosemite Sam- Temper tantrums solve nothing and lead to poor judgment.

Marvin the Martian- You’re never too small, to conquer the world, especially if you have possession of a C-42 space modulator.

Foghorn Leghorn and Dog- Even the best of friends fight sometimes, and sometimes they actually enjoy it.
Gossamer- (this was the big, red, hairy monster in sneakers) People are scary!

Speedy Gonzales- Run hard enough, fast enough and you might just reach the border.

Roadrunner- There is nothing wrong with running away from a bad situation.

And finally, the most important lesson of all came from a character that never spoke a word. Wile E. Coyote, NEVER, no matter how many ACME catalogs he went through, NEVER GIVES UP!

Sadly, up and coming generations, will be denied the laughter and lessons provided by these classical cartoons, due to censorship of cartoon violence. In closing, I leave you with this thought: considering the condition of the world’s youth today, it seems we were better off, with a few animated characters falling off of cliffs.

I welcome almost all questions and comments either through the Focus, or just E-mail me at wanderingchainsaw@gmail.com. Or you can FRIEND me on Facebook under Saw’s Brood!

Hope to hear from ya, until then try and stay focused. See ya!
