Well, I'm glad that all worked out! :D
 
Reminds me of an episode of Duck Dodgers, where he says to self "I will just stare at the pages of book for the appropriate amount of time, so I look like I am actually reading." 🦆:rof:

Duck Tales...?
 
Damn, what an awesome opening.
Whether that was actually Tom Jones or a perfect soundalike seems completely superfluous!

Alright, since everyone already knows that I'm a total weirdo, I'll just admit that I never cared too much for the typical Warner Bros cartoon-style. It was just all a bit too obnoxious for me, and also I felt like the jokes were telegraphed from a million miles away. Obviously many, many people felt like the opposite, but frankly I was always much more of a Rocky & Bullwinkle / Dudley Do-right fan, in which the jokes worked on multiple levels at very best.

Anyway, I just wanted to establish my standing.

So how were the actual cartoons of Duck Dodgers, anyway? Did they also make a Dash Dordan companion series? I suppose not, hehe.

Ah, but now I'm reminded of Sir Brian Blessed, a bloke who could take over a scene whilst stumbling backwards in to a huge pile of cow manure. (if required, of course)

It in fact is Tom Jones singing the theme song. (I was actually thinking of making pinball table based on this theme.)
This cartoon seemed more geared for adults, as "the acting like reading book" was joke not many kids would get.
Although sadly these days, many kids cannot read even up to grade 12.
This is what happens when hard work and merit means nothing, and it just feels right passing all of these kids on to next grade, even though they have learned nothing. I guess it makes the teachers feel better?
No more Honor Students. They make the other students look dumb, so we can't have them anymore.
Win a trophy for sports? No, you will get a Participation Banner, because we can't have any losers right?
Then kids get out in the real world, and find that there is no "Safe Space" to hide from lifes REAL problems, so they have trouble functioning in society.
Sorry for the rant! :offtopic:
 
NP for the rant, and in fact the education system has been under attack in the States for some decades now. School funding and inflation-based pay for teachers is an utter disaster at this point, and teachers are leaving in droves, for very good reasons. They typically get little support at the admin level and more and more are harassed by angry parents usually upset that there's been pushback on their kid's loss of behavior.

If you go to any online teachers' forum (r/Teachers would be an example) you can read umpteen daily examples of how its increasingly impossible for them to do their jobs, which they once had actual passion for.

The financial entities causing this strain and shift are the same types eager to convict people of minor drug offenses and throw them in to the for-profit prison industry, i.e. the privatization model. An easy example of this (one of many, many) is Betsy DeVos, who was inexplicably installed as Secretary of Education under the previous Presidency. She's in fact part of the interest group that wants to convert education to the for-profit corporate model, and was perfectly willing to destroy public education to get there.
