I'll come up with something in a minute.


I was looking at my copies of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection, because I have all 6 sets now, and it occurred to me to count how many cartoons are in there. Around 410 as far as I can tell. It might depend on how you count things, if you count the bumpers made for the various TV shows and if you count cartoons included in some of the semi-documentaries and actual documentaries that aren’t just excuses to run bunny cartoons. I’m thinking 410 is probably a minimum number. There is a lot of material is my point. Not enough Private Snafu though.

So, along with having more documentaries than you, I probably have more cartoons than you too. Unless you’re some otaku who has stacks and stacks of anime, because while we have some anime around the place (mostly Syd’s) I can’t compete on otaku level. We do have an impressive number of animated shorts though, and probably more than most people. It’s not something to be smug or proud about but we’ve got a lot of cartoons around the place.

Need more claymation and early computer animation shorts though. I still need a DVD of The Minds Eye in fact. Not Beyond the Mind’s Eye, just the first one. Have it on VHS somewhere, I guess I could digitize it myself. Sorry, this doesn’t matter. I used to like short assemblages of computer animation.

Neat stuff.
