In honor of President’s Day, Toons & Tunes offers up this gem from The Looney Tunes Show, starring—gasp!–loony Lola Bunny! (We like the funny version of Lola; deal with it, nerds.) Lola presents her own skewed view of history in song, along with visuals resembling those of the former Cartoon Network series MAD. Here’s “President’s Day”.
Today’s Toons & Tunes comes to us courtesy of The Looney Tunes Show. (I’ve been in a Looney Tunes vibe recently, as you could probably tell.) The loudmouthed Southern rooster Foghorn Leghorn has always been a legend in his own mind, so what better way to illustrate that point than having him belt out a country tune where he brags about all of his alleged accomplishments? Here’s “Cock of the Walk”.
(It’s there, trust me. Click on it.)
-Look for cameos from Pepe LePew, the Instant Martians and Miss Prissy!
Today we have a “2-fer” (because it falls into 2 of our categories). The following sketch comes to us courtesy of the late Cartoon Network animated series MAD. It’s a musical number about the plight of being one the DC super heroes who aren’t the DC Trinity. Enjoy “That’s What Super Friends Are For”.
I first heard this one on Kids’ WB!, on Animaniacs‘ famous (or infamous, depending on your point of view) all musical episode. I wasn’t wild about a show featuring nothing but songs, as I’m generally not a fan of musicals and most of them didn’t gel with me, but I liked this particular one. I’m always up for a good nautical boat song, and anything that spotlights Yakko is always welcome. Here’s “Panama Canal”.
It’s time for another Toons & Tunes. Today we have the Angry Beavers belting out a 1970’s style one-hit wonder disco tune on Disco-Rama: The Most Ginchy, Boss, Groove Thang on the Tube. Do I really need to say anything else? Here’s “Beaver Fever”.
