Cartoons are a staple of pop culture. You can’t live in America and not know what The Simpsons is, or how many Looney Tunes have had their laughs on us.

Some of the biggest names in the industry have been making cartoons for years, and the reason we love them is precisely because they always make us laugh. If you’re like most people, you’ll say that you don’t really love them, but you’ve gotten to like them over the years. Still, you’re definitely more a fan of them than not.

What about the kids with you? They’re watching cartoons on the TV all the time, and you’re more of a fan of them because they’re not as smart as you. They’re the ones who can’t even tell the difference between an MST3K and a Looney Tunes. They’re the ones who say things like “I don’t like that show. It’s boring.”

That’s just it. They’re not your friends, and they don’t care about what you like or don’t like. If they did, they’d all be reading, listening to music, or playing video games instead.
