Sunday Morning Cartoon Cavalcade Vol. 5

I’ve realized that when it comes to my Sunday morning cartoon sessions, I much prefer to keep it to traditional 2D animation (or if it is CG, that it’s made to look like traditional animation). That’s why I stopped watching Star Wars Rebels¬†on Sunday mornings (although I finished up season 3 a few days ago, really enjoying the last 3 episodes, especially the Obi Wan Kenobi one) and Trollhunters (which, to be honest, is also because I just don’t find myself particularly compelled to keep watching it). Yesterday’s session started as usual with the latest episode of Samurai Jack, which again featured some gorgeous visuals (see the image used for this post) — and it feels like we’re starting to head towards the end of the series (sadly). I then watched an episode of Tangled, which is still fun, followed by another couple of Mickey Mouse shorts — one of them was surprisingly long, at around 7-8 minutes (they tend to be 2-3 minutes long). I then decided to hop on another nostalgic trip, by starting to watch classic Looney Tunes shorts. I started off with the classic “Hare Tonic” — incredible to think it was released in 1945, as it still feels so dynamic.
