Laugh tracks in cartoons

I think one of the earlier Simpsons DVD commentaries mentioned how Fox wanted laugh tracks because people didn't think it was funny enough. Imagine that. Then again, laugh tracks make things that aren't funny tolerable.

Animated live before a studio audience!!

"laugh tracks make things that aren't funny tolerable."


I don't know about that.

Not necessarily for people with a good sense of humor. Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm share a lot of the same jokes but I doubt if Seinfeld would've lasted on a mainstream network without the laughter. And a show like Cheers would've been downright depressing, but the "live studio audience" made Cliff's soul-crushing existence somehow funny.

Man, they could power a city for a year with this cartoon, if only they could somehow harness how little Filmation gave a shit.

The sad thing is this was only a tiny portion of a much larger, more awful show featuring newspaper comic characters.

If I recall correctly, it was called "The Fabulous Funnies" and it also had shitty versions of Alley Oop, the Katzenjammer Kids, Broom Hilda and Heckle & Jeckle. To this day, I honestly think it was designed to make kids stop watching cartoons and go play outside.

Filmation made one Tumbleweeds cartoon for this show without the pesky steps of finding out who held the rights (creator T.K. Ryan, not Register and Tribune Syndicate), and signing a contract with Ryan before going ahead with production:

Oh god. There's Blondie, Andy Capp, you name it you probably put Silly Putty over it.

That is so not how I ever imagined Sluggo's or Nancy's voices sounding.

I always thought Sluggo should sound closer to Robert Loggia, or someone like that.
