cry me a river (or even more)
29 September 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Anyone who's seen enough Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies cartoons should know that the creators really liked to poke fun at Hollywood in their cartoons. An example is Friz Freleng's "The CooCoo Nut Grove". We see caricatures of Walter Winchell, Katharine Hepburn (called Ms. Heartburn), Laurel and Hardy, Clark Gable and more.

Obviously, the problem with these sorts of cartoons is that we in the 21st century might not know who the targets are. I'd certainly never heard of Ben Bernie before this. But as long as we just pay attention to the wacky jokes and gags, the cartoon remains a hoot. I guess that as long as there's the celebrity culture - which by now has grown seemingly to a million times the size of what it was in the '30s, partially due to the media fawning over them - there will always be something to spoof.
