You can fly an invisible jet, and no one will notice that you're somehow just sitting down, but still flying (and no one tries to look up your costume). (Wonder Woman)

Frogs can sing and dance though the style is somewhat passé. (Michigan J. Frog, mascot of the WB and from a Warner Bros. cartoon)

Even if you don't have fingers, you can still save the day. (Power Puff Girls)

Skunks who are cosmopolitan enough to have French accents are incapable of figuring out that a cat with a white painted stripe on her back is not a female skunk playing hard to get. (Pepe le Pew)

An ordinary American suburban family can have a genius scientist for a son who has a Russian accent. (Dexter's Laboratory)

Girls really go for red-headed geeky guys with no money. (Archie Comics)

If you stutter and are overweight, you can still get a good job announcing the end of the show. (Porky Pig)

Pop music inexplicably plays during every chase scene, even in outer space! (Josie and the Pussycats)

Honey production is so profitable that you have to expand the beehive hairdo to the beetower hairdo. (Marge Simpson)

I am so glad Jespah brought the cartoons to our attention. My life has been patterned after a cartoon character. So far, my efforts have been in vain. One adventure after another has ended in disappointment. I try to save people and they brush me aside. I constantly comb the local paper, looking for signs of trouble... I have a desperate need to help mankind. All of this because of my hero.... Johnny Quest.

I think you'll agree -- the world is a much safer place because of the efforts of Johnny Quest.

I am going to offer a rare opportunity to the members of this site. I am going to give you the chance to have your moment in the sun. The journey I am sending you could possibly result in the erasure of all the world's problems. Go forth people and...

It is handy to have a neice who is a computer whiz, and a dog with many disguises, when you need to save the world from an evil supervillan, and his cohorts (Inspector Gadget).

Turtles like pizza, and talk like surfers (1980s Teenage Mutant Turtles).

Popular snack treats can become cartoon shows. (Gummi Bears).

I learned that the white one-shoulder dress and pearl ensemble of Wilma Flinstone was truly a classic when Nancy Reagan wore the very same outfit several years later to a formal dinner at the White House.

Ha ha ha I just had a vision of Ronald Reagan bellowing "yabba dabba doo!"

Hey, welcome DCPuppyGirl! :-D

Oh yeah, I've also learned that superheroes - who you'd think would have access to a lot of new technology - love using old-fashioned fists (Superman, the Flash and Batman), rings (The Green Lantern), lassoes (Wonder Woman), clubs (HawkGirl) and a little telepathy (Martian Manhunter) - see Justice League.

From the "Cartoon Laws of Physics":
Anything falls faster than an anvil.
Once a character falls past an anvil, said anvil will automatically shift position until it is directly above the falling character.

All my earliest exposure to Opera and Classical music came from cartoons and the Three Stooges. Think "Anvil Chorus"!

I've learn that if a gun goes in a rabbit hole and comes out a tree hole it is your gun. Even if you tie it with a ribbon and it comes out of the tree with another ribbon it is still your gun--do not under any circumstances pull the trigger, it will not be good for your face.

If you get hit in the head with a frying pan it will flat out your face but if you shake your head quick it will regain all its structure back.

If a Rabbit continually says "it is Duck season" then after a while says "Rabbit season" do not fall for the trick of the mind and allow it to stand so that he gets shot instead of you so that you can keep your bill in its place.

I've always loved Daffy! :-D

A speech impediment is no obstacle to a fine announcing career: Porky Pig
You can kick serious monster butt yet still be fascinating by coloring: The Power Puff Girls (in particular, Bubbles)
White gloves go with any outfit: Mickey Mouse
Even superheroes can try to use cheesy pickup lines: Justice League (in particular, the Flash, trying to pick up Hawkgirl - "Is there a Hawkboy?")

"Is there a hawkboy?" LOL never saw that one. Cheesy yet I still think it is so funny.

I also learned that stupid is a funny word. Dexter telling his computer "You are stupid. You are stupid and another thing you a stupid." All because computer made Mandarcs head bigger instead of smaller.

Well, I find most of what Dexter says to be funny, but I think it's the accent. Speaking of which - in a match between Dexter and Jimmy Neutron, my money's on Dexter.
