Watching the classics online

DH and I always enjoyed B5. :-) "

I hadn't heard of this site before.

AOL Televsion has about a hundred shows from over the last fifty years. Here are a few that I'll be checking out:

Bugs Bunny
Fractured Fairy Tales
Gilligan's Island
Lois and Clark
Mr. Peabody and Sherman
My Favorite Martian

I've had some trouble getting them to play.

It is pretty amazing that this kind of entertainment is now free over the internet.

This is the future of entertainment, and I find it to be exciting.

We have a Netflix subscription, which allows us to watch unlimited hours of their online offerings. It's fun to bring up a documentary or Pink Panther cartoon for the kids at a moment's notice.

I had missed that Netflix feature.

Yes, it is pretty amazing. It is amazing that there is such a wide variety of options, at our finger tips, and often at a low cost or even free.

I found two of my favorite Looney Tunes there, Rabbit of Seville, and Robin Hood Daffy. They are free, but the picture quality is pretty low. Those WB cartoons had fantastic animation so something is lost there.
