Anyone watching Young Justice tonight on Cartoon Network? Not a bad show really.

Aqualad's webbed hands/feet are kinda gross.

Why does almost every kid's show have a conspiracy group now?

I'm hoping that some of you can help me with something.  For the longest time, my father and I used to quote an old Foghorn Leghorn Looney Toons cartoon where he says, 'You're too short son, the quick ones go right over your head.'  However, I was looking around on YouTube and I couldn't find the episode where he says this.  The closest thing I could find was when he's talking to the Chickenhawk and he says, 'You're built too low to the ground...'  So am I crazy and he doesn't say the quote as I remember it or is there still an episode out there that I haven't found?

There was also an episode where the Chickenhawk calls Foghorn a 'Loudmouth Schnook', but I couldn't find that one either.  I'm hoping that both quotes are in the same episode and it's out there somewhere so I can show it to my kids.  I was trying to explain it to them and they instead think I'm crazy...

I think the episode you're thinking of is when he's watching the little chick with the glasses.  They're out playing baseball and he makes the joke about "keeping your eye on the ball....eye....ball....eyeball!  Get it boy? It's a joke boy!  You're too short son, the quick ones go right over your head!"

Funny, that is the same episode that features MY all-time favorite Foghorn Leghorn line:

"It's sody-pop...watch it fizz!"

How could the Governator be destroying city property while fighting off robots when we don't have the money to pay for that?

Well, I guess it's San Francisco so its ok. They didn't vote for him anyway. 8)

I see EW is running a poll of the 25 best animated series of all time (you can vote for #1 HERE).  Lots of personal favorites on that list, and the original CW micro series is included as well.  Some other highlights:

Clone Wars Micro Series
Batman: The Animated Series
The Simpsons
Family Guy
Animaniacs
Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour (Looney Tunes)
Scooby Doo
Robot Chicken
Venture Bros.
Futurama
Spongebob Squarepants

I'm sure there are some missing, but a fairly diverse list otherwise.  Although I like a number of those series, I think I'd give the nod to Batman: The Animated Series personally.  I still watch and re-watch those DVDs...and, with apologies to the great Nolan Batman films...it really is my favorite version of the Dark Knight.  There are a few others I would have liked to see included, but can understand why they aren't too (Spectacular Spider-Man, original Joe/TF, Justice League/JL Unlimited, 200X MOTU, etc.)

What, did they just limit it to stuff from the 80's or 90's? They missed several decades of outstanding programs.

Johnny Quest
Thundarr the Barbarian
Herculoids
Space Ghost
The 70's Flash Gordon
Original Spider-Man with that gay song
60's Fantastic Four
Voltron
Starblazers

Shoot, I could probably come up with 25 just from my childhood alone...To Be Continued

They missed many from the 80's and 90's as well.  How about the original SW Clone Wars?  Superfriends?  He-Man?  Mask?  Silly polls.

In my mind, Looney Tunes wins hands down.
