Favourite Things Thursday ~ Gossamer

As I may have mentioned a time or 7, I lurve cartoons. I always have. Cartoons of yester year, cartoons of yore that entertained & made sense most of the time.

I am a big fan of Warner Bros Looney Tunes {yes, complete with the violence! Children aren't as stupid as society likes to think ~ they are well aware of the difference between reality & cartoons} & one of my favourite characters is Gossamer, the big, orange monster. He was originally called Rudolph, but things change & continuity means nothing in the world of Hollywood.

He appears in features with Bugs Bunny, usually as the minion of some sort of mad scientist. He is easily distracted by Bugs {although, who isn't?} & amuses me greatly.

A clip from the film he was introduced in, "Hair-Raising Hare"

My fav scenes from the film:

"Water, Water Every Hare"

Listen to Gossamer after he gets shrunk! Isn't that a scream?

My one piece of fan paraphernalia featuring Gossamer with Bugs, a small pin I bought in Vegas, in a pathetic, terribly out of focus photo:

Favourite Things Thursday is hosted by Blue.

Oh Wilma!
I can always find humour in your Favourite Things posts to lighten my moods.

Love you for it.

Me too! I grew up watching Looney Tunes and I don't think I turned out the worse for it. BJ
