  • I have some technical questions about old cartoon shorts shown on TV. Please help?

    Are those showcases of uncut classic cartoon shorts that are/were shown on TV that weren't packaged as part of some show with or without program ID's to introduce the cartoons considered "cartoon blocks"?

    Were those program ID's that were used to open the showcases of these cartoon shorts with considered "opening bumpers"? The program ID's were sequences of some kind and used something to grab the viewers' attention and let them know what they were watching.

    These program ID's were produced by the stations or networks that aired the cartoon showcases, and/or by the companies that produced the cartoons.

    Are/were these showcases of uncut cartoon shorts shown with or without program ID's to introduce them considered cartoon anthology series?

    Cartoon anthology series are/were usually cartoon shows that passed off the cartoon shorts as "episodes" within the shows. The opening and closing credits that were usually shown with each short were cut from them. You didn't see any credits until the shows were over.

    Examples of cartoon anthology series:

    THE BUGS BUNNY/ROAD RUNNER SHOW which later became

    THE BUGS BUNNY AND TWEETY SHOW

    THE WOODY WOODPECKER SHOW

  • What's the deal with the Mario princesses and the territories they reign over?

    Hi. I'm just curious. Princess Daisy is originally from Sarasaland and is known as the ruler of Sarasaland. If Princess Daisy lives in the Mushroom Kingdom along with Princess Peach then who rules over Sarasaland in Daisy's absence?

    Does Daisy help Peach rule the Mushroom Kingdom? Does Daisy take Peach's place as ruler of the Mushroom Kingdom when Peach is off doing her own thing?

    Who is running the Mushroom Kingdom when Peach and Daisy are both off doing their own thing?

    Who runs the Comet Observatory that Princess Rosalina lives in and watches over the cosmos when Rosalina is off doing her own thing?

    Please help. Thank you.

  • How do you signify possession for nouns ending with " 's"?

    Hi. I'm curious about this. How do you signify possession for nouns ending with " 's"?

    " 'S" usually signifies possession, as in "Gary's dog" or in "Martha's cat".

    " 'S" is sometimes used to denote the plural of something, like in "X's and O's" or in "mind your p's and q's".

    "Macy's", "McDonald's" and "Wendy's" are all proper nouns.

    These are the names of fast food restaurants.

    Since they all end with " 's" how would you signify something belongs to these restaurants in a sentence?

    Would you put an apostrophe at the end of each name?

    Please help. Thank you.

  • How popular is Princess Daisy?

    Hi. I'm just curious about this.

    I don't know how popular and famous Daisy is. She's like a second banana to Princess Peach. She has mainly appeared in side Mario games since her debut, but hadn't been playable in any official Nintendo platformer until SUPER MARIO MAKER (the first one) and SUPER MARIO RUN came out, and both games came out almost three decades after her debut. She was added to the roster of playable characters in The Super Smash Bros. series as an echo fighter to Princess Peach. A lot of people seem to like her.

    I lot of people think she's the better princess - she has a more developed, fleshed-out personality than Peach. She's a strong independent tomboy who can handle her own, while Peach is the stereotypical girly girl damsel in distress.

    But if Daisy is "the better princess" why hadn't Nintendo featured her in more official platformers? 

    She wasn't playable or even featured as a supporting character in SUPER MARIO 3D WORLD which was odd, while Princess Rosalina was playable.

    Please help. Thank you.

  • Is "uppity" a term that is used on non-Blacks?

    Hi. I'm not being racist. This is a question on language/linguistics and culture.

    I'm an African American. When I hear, see and/or read people, especially other African Americans, refer to me as "uppity" I think they are being racist.

    "Uppity" means snobbish or snobby and it's a term that's been associated with African American culture. How this term originated and how it became associated with African American culture I do not know.

    Is this term a term that's also used on non-Blacks? Is this a common term?

    Please help. Thank you.

  • Why did they stop producing commercial bumpers for kids' cartoon shows?

    Hi. I remember certain '80s and '90s kids' cartoon shows used to be shown on TV with bumpers. These bumpers were shown before and after commercial breaks.

    The programming bumpers shown before commercial breaks would include the phrase "We'll be [right] back after these messages" or "(name of show) will be back after these messages" (or variations of it), except for the bump before the final commercial break, which would usually say, "And now, these messages" (or variations of this phrase).

    The bumpers shown after commercial breaks would include the phrase "And now back to the show" or "And now back to (name of show)" (or variations of it).

    Why did they stop producing commercial bumpers for kids' cartoon shows?

    I'm curious about this. Please help. Thank you.

  • Can "girly girl" be used as an adjective?

    Hi. I know what a "girly girl" is:

  • Did Nintendo ever do anything special for Wario's 25th anniversary and Princess Daisy's 30th anniversary?

    Hi. I'm just a bit curious about this. 2017 marked the 25th anniversary of Wario's debut and 2019 marked Princess Daisy's 30th anniversary of her debut.

    Wario first appeared in SUPER MARIO LAND 2: 6 GOLDEN COINS in 1992 and Princess Daisy first appeared in SUPER MARIO LAND in 1989.

    I know Wario isn't as popular or as famous as the Mario Bros. despite having his own series of platformers and the WarioWare series.

    I don't know how popular and famous Daisy is. She's like a second banana to Princess Peach. She has mainly appeared in side Mario games since her debut, but hadn't been playable in any official Nintendo platformer until SUPER MARIO MAKER (the first one) and SUPER MARIO RUN came out, and both games came out almost three decades after her debut. She was added to the roster of playable characters in The Super Smash Bros. series as an echo fighter to Princess Peach. A lot of people seem to like her.

    Did Nintendo ever do anything to celebrate and/or commerate their anniversaries?

  • Poll: Happy Labor Day 2020! Doing anything special for the holiday?

    Hi. Happy Labor Day 2020! Doing anything special for the holiday?

    I don't think I'm really doing any special. I still have a bunch of house work to do and other business to take care of. I'm probably going to out later and get some shopping done; I need to pick up a few things. I'd like to talk to my Christian penpals and interact with people on YouTube later on today if I have the time.

    What about you? Doing anything special for the holiday?

    Please help. Thank you.

  • Is this cartoon vaudeville?

    Hi. I'm curious about this. I remember certain cartoon shows from the '80s and '90s opened in the following manner:

    The show opens with a stage or some kind of platform. A curtain may or not be raised after that. A character or characters would walk, march or dance out on a stage or platform, usually dressed up wearing some form of formal attire, carrying canes or wands, perform a little song-and-dance number to introduce the show and when the number was over they would stop, or they would walk, march or walk off the stage or platform. A curtain may or may not have dropped after that.  

    If characters weren't doing a song-and-dance number they'd do some other kind of variety act. In some shows the act doesn't start right at the beginning of the opening of the show and in others the act is only for a brief moment.

    The cartoon shows I can think of that opened this way are:

    THE BUGS BUNNY/ROAD RUNNER SHOW which later became

    THE BUGS BUNNY AND TWEETY SHOW

    ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS

    GARFIELD AND FRIENDS

    Some of the TOM AND JERRY animated anthology series if I'm not mistaken.

    Is what I'm describing cartoon vaudeville?

    Please help. Thank you.

  • What is the part of a person's top (shirt, jacket, sweater, etc.) that hangs off a shoulder called?

    Hi. What is the part of a person's top (shirt, jacket, sweater, etc.) that hangs off a shoulder called?

    Would that be called a "yoke"? It's the part of the top that covers the shoulder.

    Would you say, "the girl made the yoke of her jacket drop and hang off of her shoulder"?

    Please help. Thank you.

  • What's the deal with Baby Waluigi?

    Hi. I'm just a bit curious about this. Mario, Luigi, and even Wario have baby forms in official Nintendo games. There are Baby Waluigi dolls made that are officially licensed by Nintendo. How come Baby Waluigi hasn't appeared in any official Nintendo games yet?

    They make Baby Mario, Baby Luigi and Baby Wario dolls that are officially licensed by Nintendo. I'm guessing the Baby Waluigi dolls were just made to complete the ensemble.

  • Poll: What's the weirdest and/or craziest thing you've learned that a celeb did recently?

    Hi. I'm just curious about this. I learned fairly recently that shortly after Madonna get into an accident and injured herself she posted a pic of herself in which she's topless and is supporting herself with a crutch on social media.

    I'm not judging. I think she's crazy. Firstly she's in her 60's. No one wants to see a pic of a half-naked old woman posted on social media, especially if she's being supported with something like a crutch in her pic. I think she needs to lie down and get her rest. Is she that starved for attention that's she's willing to pull a crazy stunt like that? That to me sounds like a cry for help.

    I'm a Christian. The woman needs to get Saved.

    Please help. Thank you.

  • What's the deal with Waluigi in general?

    Hi. I'm just curious about this. I've been interested in this character since I first learned of his existence from watching X-Play and seeing him in an old video game mag a couple of years back. I didn't know he debuted in 2000 til I looked it up.

    People made a stink over Waluigi not being playable in the three SSB games he was in. Nintendo explained why he's not playable in Super Smash Bros. yet:

    He's not important or special enough to be playable yet.

    Despite appearing in 40 games he still lacks development and refinement.

    His moveset is not all that impressive; it's based on the set of moves he uses in Mario sports games.

    Not counting Super Mario Maker, the ONLY official Mario franchise platformer he's been in, how come he hasn't appearred in any other official Mario platformers, or any Luigi or Wario ones? 

    He is referenced in certain main Mario games and makes cameo appearances in Wario Ware games.

    Why didn't Nintendo make a game introducing both Wario and Waluigi at the same time? 

    They make official licensed Baby Waluigi dolls but how come BABY WALUIGI hasn't appeared in ANY official Nintendo games yet?

    What's stopping Nintendo from further fleshing Waluigi out and refining him as a character, and featuring him in official Nintendo platformers, if anything?

    When is Nintendo going to give him the chance to shine in the spotlight?

    Are they doing anything special for his 20th anniversary at least? They should.

    Please help. Thank you.

  • How come the U.S. government doesn't issue and offer free cars to people?

    Hi. I'm just curious about this. The U.S. government has been issuing and offering free mobile phones to people since 2005. Mobile phones are a necessary. Most public payphones have been recalled. A few public facilities, as least where I live, have them. Some local businesses will let you use their landline phones for emergency calls, assuming they have such phones on hand. I thought by the time the 21st century got here most if not all payphones would have been technologically advanced by now. I saw one computerized payphone that required a credit card to use when I was stranded in a strange neighborhood one evening.

    I would've like to have thought that when the government was issuing and offering "Obamaphones" to people they would have issued and offered "Obamacars" to people too.

    People need cars. Free government cars are a good idea, and since they would be issued and offered by the U.S. government they should already be insured.

    Please help. Thank you.

  • What's with the recent surge or wave of political correctness that's surfaced lately regarding voice acting in cartoons?

    Hi. I've learned fairly recently that Mike Henry, the voice of Cleveland Brown from Family Guy, stepped down from his role. According to:

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/globalnews.ca/news/71...

    Henry made his decision to step down after learning that two White actresses who each voiced an African American character on their respective shows stepped down from their roles.

    Henry said that people of color should voice people of color, which is true. Hank Azaria stepped down from his role as Apu on The Simpsons.  Fox announced that from now on all characters of color will be voiced by actors of color.

    This all has to do with political correctness. Why is this an issue all of a sudden? People didn't complain that Mike Henry voiced an African American character for about 2 decades. If Apu was such a contraversial character on The Simpsons how come people didn't complain about him a lot sooner?

    On one hand I think this is ridiculous. If a voice actor has a voice that fits a certain character it shouldn't matter what the actor's ethnicity is. On the other hand, this is progress. For many years voice acting in cartoons has been somewhat of a minstrel show, or a whitewashing of sorts in general, especially in modern times. It's good that cartoon makers are breaking away from this. People of color should be given the chance to voice act if they want to and more opportunities should be open to them.

    Please help. Thank you.

  • Are TruConnect smartphones worth getting? Are they worth the time and investment?

    Hi. I know since 2005, when President G.W. Bush was in office, free mobile phones have been offered and issued by the government. I don't know too much about free government mobile phones. The term mobile phone is broadly used to describe a phone that is not connected by any wires. It also covers satellite phones, Wi-Fi phones and cell phones and smartphones.

    I saw an ad for TruConnect smartphones being advertised when I was playing some mobile app games:

    https://www.truconnect.com/

    TruConnect smartphones are free government smartphones. At first glance they look and seem like quality smartphones. If these phones really are quality phones I think I would like to send away for one. I wouldn't have to pay a monthly phone bill; I can save the $80/month I usually give to Boost Mobile each month for my Android smartphone.

    I need to talk to my cousin and my mother's friend who has me set up on a family plan with Boost Mobile about this.

    Does anyone here know anything about TruConnect smartphones? Are they worth getting?

    I know free government mobile phones have been commonly referred to as "Obamaphones". One person I know told me you don't want to get a free government mobile phone. She was telling me about "Obamaphones".

    Please help. Thank you.
