Somehow, Starr has lived this long without seeing "Duck Amuck" or "What's Opera, Doc?"! Luckily, Turner Classic Movies put on a special Chuck Jones tribute tonight, and a Tweet from [livejournal.com profile] kittykatya alerted me to the fact. Starr's cultural education is now increased.

Luckily, she's the type of person who can properly appreciate a classic Looney Tunes short, and her reaction to each consisted of "This is my new most favorite cartoon ever!" The woman has taste. It's amazing how funny a cartoon can be without focus groups, Nielsen ratings, a merchandise line, or a stream of "notes" from studio executives. The folks at Termite Terrace just made films they liked, and hoped other people would too. It worked.

I note that Daffy Duck used the "D'oh!" exclamation long before Homer Simpson. Also, Starr will never again hear "Ride of the Valkyries" without the word "wabbit" echoing in her head. Heh heh heh.
