In the cartoon version of Benjamin Franklin's kite experiment, he claims to have "discovered electricity". This was neither the intent or result of the exercise, which was to demonstrate that lightning was electrical in nature, which led to the invention of the lightning rod. It is not actually known whether Franklin actually performed the kite experiment, but he did write up a proposal for it. Prof. Georg Wilhelm Richmann of Saint Petersburg, Russia was electrocuted trying to duplicate the feat. See more »

I Liked The Folk Art In Here
15 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bugs is relaxing on his mid-1950s modern lounge (they were the "in" furniture back then) reading a "Bugs Bunny Cartoon" when his frustrated nephew shouts, "I give up."

"What's the matter, Clyde," says Bugs (instead of his normal "What's up doc?" line) The little bunny is upset because he's having a test in American history today and he can't remember "all these dates."

"Uncle Bugs," as the little guy calls him, then his the kid his history lesson. Bugs relates how New York City was changed, how Ben Franklin discovered electricity, what the tea "tacks" was all about, etc.

I didn't find this that humorous, frankly, but I did thoroughly enjoy the American folk artwork in here. This was nicely drawn.
