The most hilarious cartoon ever!!
7 January 2001 | by (Parkersburg, West Virginia) – See all my reviews

This is the funniest cartoon that I have ever seen!! Never have I laughed so hard til I cried, but this is the one that did it to me!! I have spent years trying to find out the title to this gem and am so glad to find it!! If you ever get the chance to see it, then do--it is funny beyond funny!! I love it.
