In case you were wondering why the Dem’s are pushing for the Fairness Doctrine right now.
It’s all about balance, baby.

NEW YORK (AP) — A peacock that roamed into a fast-food restaurant parking lot was attacked by man who vilified the bird as a vampire, animal-control authorities said.
Beaten so fiercely that most of his tail feathers fell out, the bird was euthanized, said Richard Gentles, a spokesman for the city’s Center for Animal Care and Control.
“It’s just unbelievable that someone would do something to a poor, defenseless animal and do it in such a cruel fashion,” he said.
The peacock, a male several years old, wandered into a Staten Island Burger King parking lot and perched on a car hood Thursday morning. Charmed employees had been feeding him bread when the man appeared.
He seized the iridescent bird by the neck, hurled it to the ground and started kicking and stomping the creature, said worker Felicia Finnegan, 19.
“He was going crazy,” she said.
Asked what he was doing, she said, the attacker explained, “‘I’m killing a vampire!’”
Poor guy is probably going to get in trouble for trying to provide a public service.

Not a cartoon,until the end, though there are a lot of cartoon clips to fill in if you are interested.A Series that is a documentary about “Tex” Avery.The creator of Droopy Dog, and Country and City Wolf(which I guess is called “little rural riding hood”). Not to mention a general influence on all WB cartoons, and especially the man who made a secondary rabbit character into Bugs Bunny.First.
Can find the other 3 on your own, if you are interested.
But probably my single favorite cartoon short of all time.
Little Rural Riding Hood
Note: I researched the shit out of this one, and I think it will be my most proud SMC for some time, only cuz I couldn’t find shit on Mel Blanc.
Update: I don’t see how to embed it, but in the comments Steve_in_hb has a link to another clasic created/inspired by Tex. VERY fun, I THINK I saw it, but all the wolf redhead flick’s other than “little rural riding hood” blur for me. Thank you Steve.
