One day I yell downstairs, “Mr. Bryant, what are you doing?”, that is what I call my son sometimes, he responds “watching cartoons.” And my heart sunk. That is the one response that I despise. With so much to do in this world, there is so much to do besides being addicted to the TV. But then I heard a familiar sound. You know that old Looney Tunes sound. And honestly I felt a little better.
The Looney Tunes I remember was my first real exposure to classical music. I realize most people ignore it, but those original cartoons used scores based on the known music. Take a listen to some of those old cartoons and see if you can identity any of the classics.
