How F*cking Romantic: Cartoons About Love- Blue Cat Blues

NUVhLU9ibWd6aDQx_o_tom-and-jerry-103-blue-cat-bluesSay,  the M*A*S*H theme song is right. Suicide IS hilarious. Love, however, is not very funny at all.

Going by the evidence of the abundance of crying towels, depressing alcoholic gag gifts and this incredible 1956 Tom and Jerry short, mid-century America was one seriously bummed out time & place.

I guess this Valentine’s Day is as good a time as any to see Tom get played like a  bassoon by a black-hearted, gold-digging minx.  See ya in the great hereafter, Tom.

Special thanks to animation historian/sad sack Thad Komorowski for the recommendation of Blue Cat Blues.

About Josh Latta

Mr Josh Latta was born in 1853 to a family of tamed Pleistocenes. he was raised as a small child, entering into adulthood on the eve of his 7th birthday as was the tradition of the day. in 1867 he undertook a course in multi-reptile wrestling ending his career as 'croc-tussler' after an unfortunate shallow-river related accident cut short the life of a young crocodile. moving to rural Sheboigan in the fall of 1872, he made a good living raising fancy roosters and painting murals across the town depicting the various lascivious secrets of the townsfolk. driven out of town in the spring of 1873 he found his way to Utah where he was Flaneur in Residence at the Foundation of Gentlemen and Cultured Guinea Pigs (now the Foundation of Water Fowl and Cultured Guinea Pigs) until a scandal involving twin milkmaids and a churn of cream called for his resignation. Latta entered into the history books in 1899 for his lifesize construction of Monument Valley in matches.
