    "Fat Cats", directed by StarToons founder Jon McClenahan. Great short, still one of my faves. I love the snappy animation, and the smart/dumb comedy team is classic.
    I saw Yucky Duck for the first time in that airing and it was... interesting. While I don't much care for the way poses just sort of... cut into each other without any natural progression or logic, you have to admire the visual energy of the short and creativity on many of the gags. Same goes for Sledgehammer O'Possum.

    Quick Question? Did Dexter's Lab and other Cartoon Cartoons have short cartoons on What a Cartoon Show. Like with ChalkZone and OddParents spinning off from Oh! Yeah Cartoons.

    If by that you mean "Did some of the Cartoon-Cartoons start out as 'What-A-Cartoon!' shorts?" then the answer is yes. The 'What-A-Cartoon!' series was basically a chance to audition pilots for potential new series on CN. In fact, Dexter's Lab was CN's very first World Premiere Toon. The Cartoon-Cartoon shows which began life as World Premiere Toons goes thusly:

    Dexter's Laboratory (1 short, Dexter's Laboratory)
    Johnny Bravo (2 shorts, Johnny Bravo and Johnny Bravo and the Amazon Women)
    Powerpuff Girls (2 shorts, Meat Fuzzy Lumpkins and Crime 101, not counting Whoopass Stew, which never aired on TV)
    Courage the Cowardly Dog (1 short, The Chicken from Outer Space)
    Cow and Chicken (1 short, No Smoking)
    Codename: Kids Next Door (1 short, No 'P' in the Ool)
    Billy and Mandy (1 short, Meet the Reaper)
    Mike, Lu & Og (1 short, Mike, Lu and Og)
    Sheep in the Big City (1 short, Sheep in the Big City)
    Megas XLR (1 short, Lowbrow)

    Thnx that's what I meant. I can't believe the show aired from 95-97 and some of those shows didn't air until almost 5 years later. I can't believe they kept the idea that long. If they brought it back they could have a chance for a lot more shows. So pretty much the show was created to make a lot of shows for CN well it definately worked. So when it premiered it was the only new show for CN.

    They also had H-B shows like Flintstones and Kids Wb shows like Animaniacs so it must have been like a Toon Disney of that time classic shows, newer shows and a few new shows of their own.

    I guess I'm the one to tell yall the truth...


    Billy and Mandy never was a What A Cartoon short, so wasn't Mike Lu and Og, nor Robot Jones, nor Kenny and the Chimp, nor Kids Next Door, nor any of the post 1997 cartoons. Do any of you see the WAC logo and credits between those shorts? Nope. WAC ended back in late 1997 with the last 2 shorts made by Ralph Bakishi, and Buy One, Get One Free. There were 52 shorts made. Those shorts were made between 1998-2000 when Cartoon Network had the Big Pick for a couple of years.



    Now THAT'S history.

    Just because they stopped using the WAC name around 1998 doesn't make the latter shorts any less World premiere Toons. Those latter shorts didn't use the WAC name or opening, true, but technically they were still shorts which aired as pilots for potential new CN series with vote-in results, just like the WAC shorts were. Therefore trying to claim that WAC and The Big Pick are 2 completely different things is like saying that 5 is different from half of 10. Same thing, different umbrella title. WAC, Big Pick, potato, po-tah-to.

    Last night's show had Ralph Bakshi's two Malcolm and Melvin shorts as well as Eddie Fitzgerald's "Tales of Worm Paranoia" (all three shorts had the original What-a-Cartoon opening/closing).

    Saturday's show had Dino's Great Egg-scape, Awfully Lucky, and... I forgot the other one. :eek:
