Cap'n Crunch Animation Art

Here's an actual production cel from a Cap'n Crunch with Crunchberries TV commercial. The actual art is just the characters, but you can see a background and the cel numbering on the lower right side. Click for wallpaper sized pic.

This makes me smile every time. Here's a link for more Cap'n Crunch memories.

Bernard Kliban "Whack Your Porcupine"

Bernard Kliban was published in Playboy in the 1970s, and eventually got into drawing lots of cats. He also did several great cartoon collections, including this one, "Whack Your Porcupine" and "Never Eat Anything Bigger Than Your Head".

The cartoons are funny and thought-provoking. These books aren't in print right now, but are dirt cheap on the used market. Highly recommended.
