Superman And Mighty Mouse

Friday , 29, May 2015 Comments Off on Superman And Mighty Mouse

The Mother Goose & Grimm comic strip below appeared in today’s newspapers across the country. I laughed when I first saw it, and then my mind started working, which is seldom a good thing. As a kid, Mighty Mouse was one of the first cartoons I watched on TV. I loved the operatic theme song, […]

It’s that time of year. News is trickling out this week and will next week, I’m sure, about TV shows that have been canceled. Usually, if a show has made it through at least one season, then it has gained followers (though not enough or it wouldn’t get cancelled, right?) who will be disappointed, from […]
