quotes from cartoons, pt. 1

Greetings, citizen…

Today’s post is dedicated to cartoons.  Chances are if you enjoy this site, you enjoy cartoons.  And likewise, counter-clockwise, and conversely, too — if you enjoy watching cartoons, you probably enjoy the randomness that is this site.  If you don’t like cartoons, then you might be lacking a healthy sense of humor.  (But we won’t hold that against you… just start watching cartoons before it’s too late.)

Today’s tribute will consist of quotes from cartoons.  Our resident quotesmith has served up a very assorted batch of great quotes from cartoons.  Some of these may make you laugh directly, while others may lead you into good memories of great cartoons.  Either way, sit back and enjoy.  (BTW, if you can remember the particular episode or instance of any of these, you get extra coolness points.)  (Also, if you say these outloud and in-character, it’s even more fun!)

I have many super powers and a colossal bulk that frightens evil villains! ~ Space Ghost

Mankind has always dreamed of destroying the sun. ~ Mr. Burns, on the Simpsons

I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today. ~ Wimpy, on Popeye

I, Mojo Jojo, will destroy the Powerpuff Girls!  And when they have been destroyed they will be defeated, and I will have defeated them, and I will have won!  And then I will rule the world, because no-one will be able to stop me, and the world will be ruled by me, Mojo Jojo, who will be the only ruler! ~ Mojo Jojo

Calvin: Another gorgeous brisk fall day.  What a waste to be going to school on a morning like this.
Hobbes: What would you do if you could stay home this morning?
Calvin: Sleep right through it.

The cafeteria deep fryer is not a toy. ~ Bart Simpson, writing 500 times on the board

Kids, just because I don’t care doesn’t mean I’m not listening. ~ Homer Simpson

(You have the right to remain silent)  “I choose to waive that right.  Aaaaaaah!” ~ Homer Simpson

He don’t know me very well, do he? ~ Bugs Bunny

Optimus Prime: One shall stand, one shall fall!
Megatron: Why throw away your life so recklessly?
Optimus Prime: That’s a question you should ask yourself, Megatron!
~ Transformers, The Movie

Quintesson: Silence, or you’ll be held in contempt of this court!
Hot Rod: I have nothing but contempt for this court!
~ Transformers, The Movie

You know, evil comes in many forms, be it a man-eating cow or Joseph Stalin.  But you can’t let the package hide the pudding.  Evil is just plain bad!  You don’t cotton to it!  You gotta smack it on the nose with the rolled up newspaper of goodness!  Bad dog!  Bad dog! ~ The Tick

There’s so many that I will have to break this up into multiple posts.  So stay tuned for more cartoony goodness.  In the meantime, feel free to share your memories and opinions in the comments section.

    Ahhh… this brings back such good memories of the quality of cartoons I was raised around. I sure do miss getting to watch those like I used to. And looking back on these quotes make me realize just how much I didn’t appreciate the sophistication of both the humor (ala Space Ghost, Simpsons, and The Tick) and political/spiritual undertones (ala Transformers) these provided.

    I need to start a DVD collection of all these classics! I will do that as soon as I have my theater room…

    Yeah, lots of good memories here, too. I’d like to get the DVD sets of Transformers, Freakazoid, Looney Tunes, Justice League, and Batman (The Animated Series). So many of the newer cartoons are either incredibly dumbed-down for kids (which isn’t necessary, except for babies) or too “mature” in their content. Many of the older cartoons can be enjoyed by both children and adults.

    A few years ago there was a renaissance in cartoons, with several good series starting : Johnny Bravo, Powerpuff Girls, Dexter’s Laboratory, Cartoon Planet (with Space Ghost, Brak, & Zorak), etc., but I don’t see those too often anymore. I wonder what happened… they seemed popular…

    Ahh yes…the topic… cartoon… the scent of my childhood is strong here…
    (which is why I use a fan at my desk) I have many fond memories of the hours spent watching shows like scooby-doo & speed-racer… and that was just ‘last week’ I still find it fun to be in the next room when an episode of scooby doo comes on, and see how quickly I can identify the episode, plot, and villain by listening to the episode… I’m surprisingly good at it. I agree with beppo that its a shame with dont see more of the ‘good cartoons’ anymore… If I happen to catch any of the shows mentioned in the other posts, I always make time to watch… Classic!!!
