TOONERVILLE TROLLEY VINTAGE CARTOON BETTY BOOP FUN Comedy Animation CUPHEAD inspiration Rubber Hose



The Skipper's morning trolley run is disrupted by several forces; first, a steep hill where all his passengers get out to help push and are left behind. Next, Molly Moo-Cow chases after the trolley and climbs on; her weight sends it into a muddy lake. The Skipper calls for Katrinka (her motto: "I fix.") who pulls him and the car out of the mud. The car is too filthy, even after a quick wash, so Katrinka repaints it in red thanks to a handy paint shed. This incites a bull, so after the Skipper's bullfighting skills prove inadequate, another call to Katrinka. She flings the bull, then the Skipper. He finally gets to the train station, only to discover the train's been cancelled until next week.

#animation #cartoons #comedy Betty Boop is an animated cartoon character created by Max Fleischer, with help from animators including Grim Natwick. She originally appeared in the Talkartoon and Betty Boop film series, which were produced by Fleischer Studios and released by Paramount Pictures. She was featured in 90 theatrical cartoons between 1930 and 1939.[19] She has also been featured in comic strips and mass merchandising. A caricature of a Jazz Age flapper, Betty Boop was described in a 1934 court case as: "combin[ing] in appearance the childish with the sophisticated—a large round baby face with big eyes and a nose like a button, framed in a somewhat careful coiffure, with a very small body of which perhaps the leading characteristic is the most self-confident little bust imaginable".Although she was toned down in the mid-1930s as a result of the Hays Code to appear more demure, Betty Boop became one of the best-known and popular cartoon characters in the world.commons.org/licenses/...)

ANIME ANIME Ep7 "ONE PUNCH MAN" Parody Humor Comedy Animation Fun




Our hero suggests he knows something about Anime, Broly and Dragonball Z

One-Punch Man (Japanese: ワンパンマン, Hepburn: Wanpanman) is a Japanese superhero franchise created by the artist ONE. It tells the story of Saitama, a superhero who can defeat any opponent with a single punch but seeks to find a worthy foe after growing bored by a lack of challenge in his fight against evil. ONE wrote the original webcomic version in early 2009, and it quickly grew in popularity, surpassing 7.9 million hits in June 2012. The series has since received a manga adaptation illustrated by Yusuke Murata, as well as an anime adaptation. The series' digital manga remake began publication on Shueisha's Tonari no Young Jump website in 2012. The chapters are periodically collected and printed into tankōbon volumes. As of November 2019, 20 volumes have been released, 17 of which have been republished in English. Viz Media has licensed the remake for English serialization in its Weekly Shonen Jump digital magazine. Its English release was nominated for an Eisner Award in 2015 and a Harvey Award in 2016.
