Writer's Block: Looney times

What was your favorite childhood cartoon, and why?

My favourite cartoon was Billy and the Bronto Gang.

It was a short lived cartoon (they only had 6 episodes), but I taped them and watched them all over and over again. There was Billy, the soup chef Brontosaurus. His special power was the ability to explode villains' minds by curling his tail into a fist. Then there was Eddie the Giant Eagle, who was my first big crush on birds, and eventually lead me to creating my own eagle character. He'd soar into orbit on huge wings and blast enemies with a wave of radiation from the Van Allen belts. =D Finally was Peter the albino possum. He was kinda derpy and was always tripping over and shit, but we loved him anyway because he was hilarious.

Anyway, the three of them went around in a mobile treehouse solving cases of food poisoning. No wonder the show got cancelled.
