I grew up with Warner Bros. cartoons, but the best were by Tex Avery. He was the master of the original gags. If you get a chance Google Tex and watch some of his work. It still makes me giggle. That to me is what cartooning is about. It has morphed into smut and that is soooooo sad.
Don't forget to leave me your ideas for the strip. If I use them you will get written credit and the original inked panel.
