Cartoons started in the 1930s and 40s. The first ones were black and white, and were silent, and played in movie theatres before the cartoons such as Bugs Bunny a Mickey Mouse arrived. Soon they were able to add music to a cartoon., and by the time a cartoon with talking and short noises came out, companies had already added colour to them (this was in the 1950s and 60s). Even though their was sound in the cartoons, it was not always clear. When an animal, not a person, was talking, it was hard to understand what they were saying because they had to put on odd voices for that character.
When TVs came out, Saturday mornings were best for kids, as cartons started to be played on it! Unless it was a holiday and a parade was on, Saturday morning was cartoons galore.
Now cartoons are on hundreds of channels on TV around the world. Two of the most recognizable characters, real or imaginary, in the world are Bug Bunny and Mickey Mouse.
Cartoon Law II Any body in motion will tend to remain in motion until solid matter intervenes suddenly.
Whether shot from a cannon or in hot pursuit on foot, cartoon characters are so absolute in their momentum that only a telephone pole or an outsize boulder retards their forward motion absolutely.
Cartoon Law IV The time required for an object to fall twenty stories is greater than or equal to the time it takes for whoever knocked it off the ledge to spiral down twenty flights to attempt to capture it unbroken.
