Three things I really, really don't like that they do to old cartoons...

(1) Colorize B&W ones.
(2) Overdub new dialog to replace politically incorrect speech patterns.
(3) Digitally insert the President of the U.S. into an old Little Audrey cartoon.

Looks more like the Gov. of New Jersey on his "private" beach for the holiday

While I completely agree, Diego, I have to ask, is it typical that Canadians follow US politics even down to the State level?

I mean, I would guess that most Americans are even barely aware that Canada is the country to our north. (Hey! I'm enjoying Justin Trudeau so far.)

Gravy, I wasn't aware that you had a goat, much less that Sacramento would allow it. But California has always been a great State.

It is a matter of proximity here in Ontario we get news etc. from neighbouring states and all the US news - I would hazard a guess that most Canadians are aware of what is going on in the US and the rest of the world. It may be that Americans may be more insular and ignore the rest of the world in general and their concept of Canada comes from hockey and gr 10 geography lessons titled our neighbor to the north.

Made me laugh out loud.
Still, it's better than inserting a president into the Oval Office simply to meet a race quota. From Community Organizer, Junior freshmen senator to president who spent his days making Jimmy Carter look good. I'll take what we have now.

Hey Laughing Gravy, watcha doin' watchin' cartoons at your age. There's gotta be something more appropriate for you. How about Lawrence of Arabia? I heard its an excellent picture!

Lawrence has more sand, and BBinB has more yucks. But it 's a close call.
