The Animaniacs Suite

Better view this before Warner Bros. takes it off. This montage was made to celebrate the 99th (and unfortunately last) episode of Animaniacs, featuring various clips from the many, many cartoons in this series. Personalty I think it's Richard Stone's (Animaniacs composer) best work, and I think it's possibly the greatest peace of music I've ever heard.

So sit back and enjoy:

Cartoon Odditites: Pre-Disney Puppet Pooh

Here's an odd thing I found while wondering around the internet one day, it's a marionette version of Winnie the Pooh made for Shirley Temple's Storybook, made 6 years before Disney did it's take on the silly old bear. The only clips I could find of this episode are in this trailer I found promoting the DVD release of the series (The clips start at 00:52 and end at 1:21).

This episode (packaged with the adaption of "Babes in Toyland") is available on DVD at

Trivia: The series also did adaptions of "The Little Mermaid", "Land of OZ", "Beauty and the Beast", and "The Prince and the Pauper", all of which would be later adapted by Disney.

Sepeedy goes CGI

Warner Bros. just announced that a new CGI/Live action Speedy Gonzales movie is in the works to go with the new Marvin the Martian CGI Christmas movie.

I got a very bad feeling about this.

Nostagia Critic reviews "Qeust for Camelot"

The Nostalgia Critic one of my favorite internet reviews, has just recently reviewed the 1998 Warner Bros. animated film Quest for Camelot, or as I like to call it, The Movie Where No One SHUTS UP!


I pretty much agree with the Nostalgia Critic's opinion on this film. It's basically has every 90's animated movie cliché in the book, tries nothing original, and is just confusing (although I must admit I did like the Acme logo on the potion).

Meet the Waggtoons Part 1

Ever since 2002, I've created a little bunch of characters called the Waggtoons, my plan is to some day make cartoons staring them similar to the Looney Tunes, but I'll tell you more about that later, right now here are the five main Waggtoons characters.

Linda Retriever: A Mischievous Dog who loves to pull pranks (Especially on Zingo and Boppo). She deals with her enemies the old fashion way, by beating them up!

Dr. Dots: A very nervous dalmatian, often tries to be cool but ultimately fails in the end. He is also a doctor and a dentist.

Cristy Dots: She is probable the smartest of the bunch and doesn't want to get into crazy situations, unfortunately for her she ends up either being dragged into crazy situations or just stumbles upon them. Also for someone very small she has a big appetite.

Zingo Bingo: Often thinks he's in control and knows what he's doing, but he doesn't. He often leads him and his twin brother Boppo into wacky situations.

Boppo Bingo: Boppo is almost the opposite of his twin brother Zingo, often doubting what his brother does, even through he follows Zingo's orders anyway and still has respect for him. He doesn't talk much, and mostly communicates in Barking and Dog noises.

Time to get Things started

Hello folks, and welcome to Joey Waggoner's Toon Time, a blog about all things animated. In this blog I plan to post news, reviews, and lots of artwork. I hope you enjoy what's to come in the upcoming posts.
