Happy Thanksgiving!

What are you thankful for?


  • Robert Schaad

    Thankful for spirited debates on the merits of certain types of animation, character design, creative approaches, story, etc. An indication that people/animators care!

  • Paul N

    I’m thankful that I get to work in a profession that I love with people that inspire me daily. Oh, and for Take 5′s – the best candy bar on Earth!

  • uncle wayne

  • Tim Schuit

    Is Donald riding that turkey??

  • Joe

    I’m thankful for a new Disney 2d feature.

  • Chris Sobieniak

    Well, I can’t say comic books for one thing! Nobody hardly sells ‘em, and when I do get around buying an issue, I often felt like it wasn’t worth the glossy paper it’s printed on.

    No, I’m thankful for my uninsured health!

  • Brian

    I’m thankful for this bowl of Raisin Bran I’ve got right here in front of me.

    I’m not having my Thanksgiving dinner until…..*gulp*tommorow.

  • Grayson

    I’m thankful for cartoons on DVD, the medium of hand-drawn animation, and for cartoon brew.

  • cjseaton

    I’m thankful that traditional and stop-motion animation weren’t killed off by the CG animation dreck (except you Pixar) that continues to plague the industry.

    I’m thankful for Jerry’s ability to always answer my cartoon History questions. As a matter of fact, I have one now.

    Jerry, everybody knows that Carl Barks drew the Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge comics…and I’m assuming he also drew the cover pictured above. But who drew the Bugs Bunny comics? Just like Barks with Disney, that artist seemed to have a distinctive style and his own unique take on the WB characters. Please shed some light.

    Ron – I believe that cover is the work of Ralph Heimdahl.

  • Robert Barker

    I’m thankful that all the Fleischer Popeyes made it out on DVD before the bottom fell out of the economy.

    I’m thankful for the usual life stuff, and for the the internet, which offers endless hours of every kind of animation on tap, stuff that just a few years ago was unattainably obscure.

    I’m thankful for an animation website like this that keeps us abreast of all the good stuff and the ‘turkeys’!

    The visuals you’ve chosen are great examples of WB vs Disney, WB has no problem with animals eating fellow animals, while Disney’s characters always peacefully co-exist.

    I think WB is a truer reflection of reality.

    That this dreadful year is finally coming to an end —don’t mind me, I’m just a grumpy Mexican; Happy Thanksgiving gringos! :)

    I’m thankful for Cartoonbrew!

  • Roberto

    I’m thankful that the Looney Tunes were even created…

    I’m thankful for The Brew. I’ve seen so much cool stuff I wouldn’t have discovered on my own, and learned so much I didn’t know before.

    Thanks, Guys

    I’m thankful that I was lucky enough to work for both Walt Disney and John Lasseter.

  • G Melissa Graziano

    I’m grateful for animation. If not for animation, I wouldn’t have met the people I have, including my husband and many of my best friends! If not for animation, I would probably be an art teacher somewhere, still struggling to figure out which art I wanted to “settle” with.

    And I am also thankful for Cartoon Brew and all the positive things that have come from it. :)

    I’m thankful that through efforts of Jerry and others, I can have a plethora of Thanksgiving-themed cartoons to watch on DVD and VHS.
    Titles such as Do or Diet, Jerky Turkey, Pilgrim Porky, The Voice Of The Turkey, Holiday For Drumsticks and others to satisfy my Cartoon-ivorous cravings. And for all you baby-boom New Yorkers, ya gotta watch Gulliver’s Travels and March Of The Wooden Soldiers today too!

    Family, friends, health and seeing diverse indy creators step up to the plate.

    ..and as Steve Segal said, Thanks to The Brew.

    I’m thankful for getting into the animation biz when I did, allowing me to know, work with and learn from such brilliant cartoonists as Tex Avery, Bob Clampett, Bill Hanna, Joe Barbera, Owen Fitzgerald, Tony Rivera, Pete Alvarado, Jack Manning and Floyd Norman, among many others!

  • Dylan King

    Well, call me crazy…but I’m thankful that [adult swim] picked up Superjail! for another season.
