This is another favorite Bugs Bunny cartoon that features Wile E. Coyote as an adversary. You know, this is one of the last three Bug/Wile E. cartoons before the original Warner Bros. cartoon studio shut down in 1964.

I love the part where Wile E. lunges at Bugs and falls into the cauldron of water intended for the rabbit. And Wile E.'s eyes and nose peered out of the water to glare at Bugs during his: "Oh Father! You're stewed again!" I also love it when Wile E. mentions the "dynamite-in-the-carrot" idea, Bugs screams and Wile E. freaks, falls on his face, and then Bugs: "That it'd hurt." So anyway, this is another Bugs Bunny favorite.

This is my favorite Bugs Bunny cartoon that features Marvin the Martian as an adversary. Of course, it is vying with the last Bugs/Marivn cartoon from 1963 "Mad as a Mars Hare," but I love this cartoon better. I also love Maurice Noble's layout work for Mars, very good stuff there. I also like the sound of Marivn's "Where's the kaboom?" I'm funny that way. And the "mirror" scene between Bugs and one of the dehydrated Martians.

I am sorry to said that I have nothing else to say about this cartoon, other than the animation is perfect. So anyway, I thought this is another Bugs Bunny favorite.

Here is a Tom & Jerry cartoon that is perfect for Halloween. I know it dosen't have much creepiness, but has the 'trick' as in "Trick or Treat," as Jerry did to Tom with the window blind and the vacuum-cleaner with a collared-shirt hanging on it to make it like a ghost. But still like to put it on my list of Halloween cartoons.

In this short, Tom was listening to the "Witching Hour," a ghost-story program on the radio, and being frightened by the horror story being told. Halfway into the story, the dramatics (hair standing on end, heart leaping into throat, icy chills on spine) begin happening to Tom . . . literally. And Jerry has been observing the whole thing and laughing to himself, thought he highen Tom fears by scaring him.

I love the ending, it was a little funny. And you know, this short is the first of four cartoons in which Tom attacks Mammy Two Shoes; the others being A Mouse in the House, Part Time Pal and Nit-Witty Kitty. And also This short is the first of twenty-five cartoons where Tom speaks too. So anyway, I love this short.

This short is one of my favorite Popeye shorts animated by Seymour Kneitel & Roland Crandall. I am quite terribly particular about that, a favorite cartoon short from which year or a favorite short animated by someone.

In this lumber-jack short, Popeye rescues Olive from the river, because Pierre Bluto threw her in for not liking her spinach. I love Popeye's reaction upon hearing what Olive said "Anyone who hates spinach is my emeny!" So Popeye challenges Pierre to lumber-jack man-off contest. I love Popeye's "I'll do anything that you do," in a sing-song way. Of course Popeye outdid Bluto in the competition, and then the two have a fist-fight while trying to keep their balance on logs floating down the river! Naturally Popeye has his can of spinach on him and wins in the end. Speaking of the ending, I thought it was funny that Popeye and Olive force-fed Bluto mouthfuls of spinach, and Bluto is bawling like a baby when they feed him.

Overall, I love this cartoon from beginning to end.

You already know, I am a huge Popeye fan and I am also a fan of the Fleischer studios' work. Here is a favorite Popeye cartoon perfect for Halloween. It has a little bit of the spooky surrealism that was used in "Minnie the Moocher" and "Betty's Halloween Party", both starring Betty Boop.

In this short, Popeye, Olive Oyl & Wimpy, are out for a picnic on the beach when they come upon a ghost ship. Of course, they climb aboard the ship where the ghosts attack them; but thankfully Popeye brought his can of spinach along.

Like I had said I don't have any particular scene I like, because I love the whole cartoon. There is another good Popeye short for Halloween called "Ghosks is the Bunk" from 1939, where Popeye and Olive used invisible paint to pretend to be ghosts to scare Bluto because he was played scary trick on the pair in an old hotel.
