Old Brew


My friend Wayne Daigrepont has a cell phone and just found out he had Toonworld TV Classics. Here’s his email to me:toonworld.jpg

So here’s my cell phone, right?? It only has 5,000 gadgets I don’t know about yet. In my fiddling-faddling with it….I find I can (and do) get “tv” (images only in increments of “stills”)….It is via Sprint, and it is a download called MobiTV. The Channel is 28 (ToonWorld TV). They play such non-stop (& non-interrupted) toons as Roger Ramjet (!), all Harveytoons! (theatrical Caspers, Baby Huey, Herman & Katnip, etc.) & “The Dick Tracy Show,” (yes…. with allllll those “politically incorrect” characters”). The fee is $10 a month….and its image is pristine!!

Toonworld TV Classics launched in 2003 and mainly broadcasts public domain Popeye, Superman, Betty Boop, Gumby and The Three Stooges shorts. They have also partnered with Classic Media to show Mister Magoo TV cartoons and Rankin Bass holiday specials. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal.
