Animated Philosophy – Trampled Underfoot Podcast – EP 55

In this Loony Tunes of an episode, Mark Lindsay and Eloy Escagedo talk about all the cool cartoons we all grew up on. Do you remember those animated adventures on Saturday mornings and after school? An animated icon turns 50 years old this month. Can you guess which one?

We discuss some obscure classic cartoons, and delve into the subject of how they were nothing more than 30 minute long advertisements for everything from toys to breakfast cereals. We talk about cartoon mascots, one of which is still used today, and the lesson the toy manufacturers and marketers learned to dramatically ramp up sales in the 80s. Oh – and we also touch briefly on the meaning of life…

This is a fun one, sit back, relax, and enjoy!
