Looney Tunes was already unwatchable by the end of the 60s, it blows my mind that it's still around.

I had to quit around 0:53. Keep this garbage in the nutrition portion of P.E. in elementary school. You know, since they'll be sitting around in classrooms watching videos anyway instead of playing outside on school grounds to burn off those burgers like they're supposed to, because anything with a blue sky and outside sounds is bad for you.
God. This makes Tiny Toon Adventures look good, and that's saying a mouthful. See? Mouthful. It's funny
Any love this show gets must purely be for the fact that it was preceded by Loonatics Unleashed and Baby Looneytoons.
Oh my god that's amazing.
And here I've been thinking the worst thing the Looney Tunes ever did was Tiny Tunes!

0:17 and I already want to punch the writers. Must be some sort of record.
Eh, it's not ponies. 5.
Trenderhoof is a dead pony? Is it currently being vivisected? If one of those two conditions are being met, then yes.
My mistake! You're more of the goth-Alicorn-OC-who-dates-Pinkamena type.
But I bet your OC looks like Trenderhoof in corpse paint.
I'm sure we both can agree that Trenderhoof was the worst pony ever. I can't believe he said, "You know I have such respect for the work ethic of Earth Ponies." when trying to mack on Applejack.
MLP is a high-quality, cleverly-written cartoon, Pokemon is a consistently well-produced video game, and Harry Potter has promoted literacy more effectively than PBS could ever dream.
That being said, anyone above the age category of "teen" who invests time appreciating or deconstructing any of the above should be on a fucking government watchlist.
Adventure Time is cool, though.

I'd like to imagine that immediately after this a commercial comes on selling whatever processed shit kids eat these days.
I eat Fruity Pebbles everyday so I can be big and strong like John Cena.
I think fruit by the foot was pretty healthy, all things considered. My mom was one of those moms who'd give me fruit leather, which I hated so I traded it for my friend's fruit by the foot, who hated fruit by the foot (but it was cheaper.) I'd just stuff it into a ball and eat it all at once, fuck the length aspect, it's the girth that counts, right?
Years later I still have these weird cravings for the cheap-ass fruit leather they sell at the checkout aisle at Tay Jays and usually pick up about 3 of them.
I never ever ever understood Pocky and I never will.

Is enjoyment of pocky that much of a mystery?
It isn't weirder than enjoying, say, chocolate-covered pretzels, or dipping biscuit sticks in vanilla frosting.
Dipping biscuits in vanilla frosting? That sounds rather nasty. Biscuits are better when dipped in gravy.

Biscuits in vanilla frosting? Actually, it sounds rather delicious, with a salty buttery biscuit. Thanks for the idea!
yeah I used to put pretzels in my captain crunch with whipped cream instead of milk. I still don't understand pocky, mostly for the price. When I was in Japan it was like 100 yen but every time I see it in the US it's like 4 bucks. DIY kids, DIY.
il fiore bel
Really? I've not seen pocky selling for more than 2 bucks, unless it was like a bigger box, or just giant pocky.
I don't buy it much these days, though that's mostly due to stores never carrying the flavor I like (banana-chocolate... yes, I like the one flavor everyone else hates).
Yum! Maybe I'm just in the wrong part of town.. Green Zebra is the only place I've seen em and yeah it's just the little packets for 3.99. There's probably much cheaper options I'm not aware of though. Everything's overpriced at that store.
We have the internet. Just find some place where you can order the crap in bulk.
Cue conspiracy theory about how Monsanto is trying to poison all of us with engineered food.
'ere ya go govna!
It's not really a conspiracy and the facts have been around for a long time. What kind of idiot would actually think it's a "theory"? Poison is the wrong word, obviously, but considering the end result is the same I can see why people like to dramatize it by using that instead of "create unhealthy citizens who will die off faster".
I'm sorry, "create" is the wrong word. They're exacerbating peoples' already unhealthy attitudes, they are definitely not responsible for people being unhealthy to begin with, give people some credit for already being self-destructive.
Fpr modern Looney Tunes, it's not terrible.
I'm wondering about the nutritional value of the Yogurt Parfait, though. It's been my experience that, if it's a snack made with yogurt and it actually tastes good, it's not really any better for you, nutrition-wise, than regular ice cream.
Depends on who makes the yogurt (some places make what tastes like frozen cake batter and call it "yogurt") and if they sugar up the fruit. It further depends on what toppings you get, since some places have unflavored granola, fruit, nuts, etc. while other places have gummi worms, Cap'n Crunch, and chocolate chips for your "healthy" treat.
Yeah, I know there's healthy yogurt, I just find that the nutritional value of a snack made with yogurt is inversely proportional to how good it tastes.
Though a parfait is not the most healthful of foods its a great alternative to other desserts. Bugs was using it as a gateway for better eating. You don't get a guy like Daffy to go straight from bullet tacos to tofu overnight.
Look, don't buy fat-free yogurt. Fat is delicious. Whole fat greek yogurt is super tasty, and it'll only give you a heart attack, which is a good way to go. Do you want diabetes? Do you want cancer? No. Get a heart attack instead.
Greek Yogurt is an environmental hazard these days. They're making so much of it that the acidic whey is considered an EPA violation if you dump the stuff, since it encourages anaerobic bacteria to multiply to the point where they suck all of the oxygen out of whatever river/lake it's thrown into.
This cartoon forgets the most important part of trying to send a message: ENTERTAIN THE AUDIENCE FIRST. Do that, and they'll buy whatever it is you're selling.

Yeah, you have to screw up a Bugs Bunny cartoon pretty badly if he can't even eat carrots right.
When the merry-go-round broke down...
|The God of Biscuits |
I don't really get the vibe that this is trying to be educational. I get the feeling that it's trying really hard to be funny, and completely failing.
I can see someone in the writer's room going "What if, like, we made fun of the fact that Bugs Bunny eats carrots? Cause like, vegans eat carrots, that's funny right?"And then they threw out health food terms until they had enough to fill three minutes.

I can't rate this shit.
