Flush with success as I am from my recent See You in the ‘Fall’ Blogathon, I cannot resist jumping on the ‘thon wagon again. Ergo, I hereby announce the


Here’s your opportunity to sound off about one of your favorite animated films! Does a particular cartoon make you laugh, cry, think, or just plain fill you with joy? Post a blog entry about it here, and share your enthusiasm with the world!

Notice that I said it can be one of your favorite cartoons. This is not a contest in which you have to summon up superior evidence that your cartoon of choice is the greatest one ever made. Just write about the reasons why you like it.

The cartoon you choose can be of any length (short subject, feature film, television special) from movies or TV. It can be in “traditional” hand-drawn format or CGI. If you choose to write about a TV cartoon series, you can write about either the reasons why you like the entire TV series so much, or you can focus on a particular episode of the series. As long as you write an entertaining and reasoned blog in support of your choice, it will be accepted here. Also, duplicate entries are acceptable at this blogathon.

The rules are simple:

  1. Please leave me a message in the “Comments” section below that includes the name and URL of your blog, and the name of the cartoon you choose to write about.
  2. Below are banners to advertise the blogathon. Once you have completed Step # 1, please grab a banner, display it on your blog, and link it back to this blog.
  3. The blogathon will take place from Fri., Nov. 6, through Sun., Nov. 8, 2015. Once you have posted your blogathon entry on one of those dates, please post its URL in the “Comments” section so that I can link our blog back to it.

That’s all there is to it! Have fun with your blog entry, and show everyone that the best cartoons aren’t just for kids to enjoy, but are meant for everybody!

  1. You always have a good blogathon idea up your sleeve. Because I’ve had Disney in my blood ever since I was born, I’ve gotta pick something from Walt. Actually, I think I’d like to do two: Sleeping Beauty (1959) and 101 Dalmatians (1961). My blog is Love Letters to Old Hollywood.

  2. I want to write about my favorite Warner Bros. cartoon character, Gossamer, the orange monster, in Hair Raising Hare and Water Water Every Hare.

    I’m committed to doing two posts for the Swashathon, so I will be posting this a week early, if that’s O.K.


  3. I so want to do this. I have a dormant website that I haven’t used in years. If it’s still there, I’d love to resurrect it with my absolute favorite Bugs Bunny cartoon “Hare-way to the Stars.” I’ll have to let you know later if I had to start a new one or if the old one is still good.
