The Johnny Cash Show (1969 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.6/10 X  
(60 mins.)
“ This show just show just shows why I love music so much. Johnny Cash is amazing as always, but his guests are just as big of a part of the show as he is. It features some of the greatest singers (George Jones, Waylon Jennings, Loretta Lynn, Hank Williams JR.), Songwriters (Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, Neil Young, Carl Perkins), and Bands (Creedence Clearwater Revial, Derek and The Dominos). These show, Johnny Cash and all the artists (And other special guests that I did not list) show just how good music can be. ” - ruhland-horselover-micha

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.6/10 X

“ Not only did this show feature 3 classic Lonney Tunes and Merrie Melodies (BEST CARTOONS EVER!!) each week, but also bridging sequences made by the directors of those classic cartoons. I do wish they had shown more Bob Clampett cartoons, but that is a very small complaint for a show this good. The brilliant animation, great jokes, great characters, and expert timing shown in both the classic shorts and bridging sequences show why Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies have never been equaled or surpassed when it comes to cartoons ” - ruhland-horselover-micha
