I am amazed that nobody has mentioned Bugs Bunny, who was an occasional cross dresser.

Here is a sampler of many episodes with Bugs in drag.

Enjoy.  :laugh:


When I first saw this thread this is the first TV show that came to mind.  While it was mostly Bugs Bunny I remember a few other loony tunes characters also cross dressed once or twice as well.

Cartoons are the best. I love the stuff I grew up on. Felix the cat, Popeye, Betty Boop, George of the Jungle, The Jetsons, etc.

But I like some of the newer stuff too. Beavis & Butthead, Family Guy, South Park, American Dad, Johnny Bravo, and so on.

Another one I've always been a fan of is The Simpsons. Wallace and Gromit are really good to. So were the Ninja Turtles.

So what are some cartoons you like/love? What are some you hate?

I love Futurama. I guess I identify with Fry who is a person out of his time struggling to fit in.

@Rakel Good call on Bugs!  I remember noticing his crossdressing when I was kid.  (I think "maroon" is a mispronouncing of moron? - "what a maroon!")

I was a Simpsons fanatic for like the first 7 seasons or so.  Love Rocky and Bullwinkle too.

For anime, I am a huge fan of Miyazaki/Ghibli.  Sunlight and spirits and feminine power.  Kiki's Delivery Service!

Stuff I've been watching...
Disney+ has a vast library of cartoons I grew up watching. Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers, the Little Mermaid, Goof Troop, DuckTales....
But beyond that, I've been studying Dutch for about a year now. Re-watching childhood shows is fun enough on its own, but Disney+ has these shows available with Dutch audio. This has been a really enjoyable way to study.

IMO the industry was hurt by the advent of cartoons that were made specifically to market toys, such as transformers, pokemon, yugio, etc. Before that, they existed only to be entertaining and comical.  There was no agenda of selling you a product.  He-Man and the masters of the universe is another less obvious example.  It was all just to sell action figures, imo.

With my kids, there's a lot of My Little Pony (FIM) and Shimmer and Shine.

But, funny enough, they've also taken a shining to the old 1970s Dynomutt cartoons, the 80s Smurfs cartoons, and dare I say, even the short-lived Super Mario Bros/Super Mario World series (which, in many ways, were so bad they were hilarious).

But, lately, I've found myself re-visiting some of the more absurd Simpson episodes ('Mom and Pop Art' has become one of my favourites). Of course, that's after the kids are alseep. :)
 
It took over 40 years to realise, and believe, that what I am NOT, is a mistake.
