Don Markstein's Toonopedia I happened to be searching for a picture of Sniffles The Mouse when I came across this great treasure trove of cartooniness. Also settled a raging Mushmouth/Dumb Donald debate I had been having with myself. So much good stuff.

I love McSnurtle The Turtle, the only being lazy enough not to do evil, who's Automatic Conscience would transform him into The Terrific Whatzit.

Wow -- I must have missed it first time around, so thanks, Kafkaesque! Great stuff -- I'm really glad that there is someone out there with enough time & expertise on his (her?) hands to document this stuff.

Mark my words: someone, somewhere will use this site when they are called by someone in the "hot seat" on the Millionnaire game-show.

I want to know what the Mushmouth/Dumb Donald debate was.

I don't think Toonopedia has ever been an actual front page post ?

Tell me a little more about the raging debate you've been having with yourself, Kafkaesque. Have a seat here on my nice comfy leather sofa. Just let me grab my clipboard so I can jot a few things down.

*pat, pat* - right here, Kafakesque.

I'm most fascinated by the typography used for each letter of the alphabet on Toonopedia. I'm trying to figure out where they all came from. And he remembered Ruff and Reddy! Good site.

Looking through that, I realized that late 80's, early 90's was IMO the height of the comic strip.

Whither Bloom County, Calvin and Hobbes, and the Far Side?

I still haven't found* the cartoon starring the Cowboy, the Caveman and the Alien. *whines*

*See previous thread...somewhere.

Don't feel bad, rodii, I still haven't found a clip of the cartoon with Gabby Gator and the Space Dog in the sattelite saying "Alligator Go Home!" mentioned in the same damn thread ...somewhere...

Whoa. It has to be Colonel Bleep - I see a cowboy, a caveman, AND an alien - all on the good guys page. I spent over an hour googling every possible combination of caveman, cowboy, and alien a few weeks ago. I've never heard of Colonel Bleep.

alas, no tennessee tuxedo, no klondike kat. But he does have Hoppity Hooper!

Related to all this, here's one of my favorite links: The Cartoon Laws of Physics

....and where's M*U*S*H, hah? The cartoon spoof of M*A*S*H featuring dogs stationed in an army fort in the Arctic Circle. Let's hear it for Eagle-Eye, Trooper, Sonar, and Col. Flake! A brilliant idea. This show died way too soon. Why didn't you people watch, dammit?!

jonmc - I used to see M*U*S*H along with The Secret Lives of Waldo Kitty - also not included on the list.

And I loved Filmation's Tarzan, and that great, animated Star Trek

Actually, I think The Big Cartoon Database might be a better resource. Sorry, Kafkaesque. But thanks for inspiring me to Google deeper into the topic.

Great 'toons - but why did he need a picture of Sniffles the Mouse, and where and how will it come back to haunt us?!?
