Surely I’m not the only person that still enjoys watching classic cartoons. Yes. I know I’m well past the age when cartoons such as Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Quick Draw McGraw, Augie Doggie should’ve been long gone from my ‘TV repertoire’. But there must be others out there like me, even in my age group, who enjoy the clever word play and quips of these amiable characters. Younger generations won’t necessarily grasp the puns and figures of speech that make an older audience chuckle. In my view the writers of these cartoons were not only clever, but brilliant in using words to intelligently and clearly get the point across without the crassness of many of today’s cartoons. From a writer’s aspect, I marvel at how well the dialogues are written. The storylines for these shows were written in the 1960’s and do a great job of capturing and holding my attention. So these shows aren’t just entertainment for me. They’re also a model, a lesson in writing well enough to hold the audience’s attention, and it’s done in about seven minutes or less. No. I don’t tire of these cartoons. I watch them over and over.
