There would never have been any Itchy and Scratchy were it not for Mattioli's Squeak the Mouse, found via Spiegleman's RAW back in the mid '80s. I'm not sure if I remember it right, but I think it was illegal in Reagan's America, I recall stashing a copy in newspaper inside a suitcase from London.
But Zhan just turned me on to the non plus ultra of the good toon gone bad: Happy Tree Friends. I warn you that this is NSFW or anywhere else in particular. I'm real squeamish about eyes, so I find "Eye Candy" unbearable, but collect 'em all, kids.Posted by kevin slavin at March 27, 2004 01:07 PM
