Hello all together,

I want to start a new topic, and I hope you don't leave me here alone.
It's about the humor; whereat you can laugh about.

Here is my contribution, the child's sense of humor.
When I saw this little animated cartoon for the first time, I had a slight smile on my face; but then the mouth corners were pulled up.
By itself. Very Happy See for yourself:

Postscript: As I write this, I nibble "Laughing gummy".
Is so named in German language: "Lachgummi". Very Happy

Hi, FirstDay. I saw this animation short in 2009 when it was shown before the Pixar movie "UP".

I still watch cartoons & I am 62. My 28 yr old son has me watching shows
like "Regular Show" & "Adventure Time" on the Cartoon Network. These
shows are extremely popular shows with the 18 to 30 year olds. I grew
up watching Disney on TV & the movies. Our family has gone to Walt
Disney World in Florida so many times that I have lost count. It is good
to still have the child within you.

I went away for the Wild Women's Weekend with a girlfriend this past
weekend. (We shop for antiques & vintage jewelry.) During the evening, I tuned into the ABC Family Channel (Disney-owned) and finally saw the computer animated film "Tangled" which is loosely based on Rapunzel.

We have Gummi Bears here in US which is a German product.

Best wishes,
BarbaraBoo

A coincidence? I've also seen this movie.
And the little animated cartoon was a bonus.

There are not many adults, who admit, that they also see animated cartoons.
We have a small DVD collection, and I watch some from time to time. These films are often so lovingly made.
As if the filmmakers make a lot more effort for a "small" audience, than for adults.

Unfortunately I'm not the type that you can easily make laugh.
But some movies get that out of me.
I also like animated cartoons like "Ice Age" and "Kung Fu Panda".

And I like the funny comments from Richard Dean Anderson.
This makes series such as "Stargate SG-1" a little more relaxed. Very Happy

Greetings - Gre

Like I just LOVE cartoons!!! I have a Disney collection, still collecting and often watch cartoons with my two daughters..
Also love the Simpsons, Tom and Jerry, Looney Tunes, you name it..

My quote in dutch always is:
Als je het kind in jezelf niet ziet wordt je nooit volwassen.

Translation:
When you don't see/recognize the child within you, you will never be able to grow up.. Wink

Cartoons rule the world!!

I love every part of "Ice Age" and the good ol' Disney-Movies too.
Just a couple of weeks ago I got me "Bambi" Embarassed
Sure I'm a old woman, but who says that it has anything to do with age?
I've seen Ratatouille a few times, it's really good, I love it too.
Does anybody know "Robin Hood" by Disney? The scenes when Prince John calls for his mom? I'm almost dropping from my chair laughing Laughing

But different. Does anybody know the old movie "MASH"?
There are some scenes, I can't help myself, it is so funny Laughing

Hi Lies and Caty,

we have the same taste.

Unfortunately I don't know the movie "MASH", I had to "Google".
We have many "children's films" but "Robin Hood" is not in the collection.
I believe this at least. One loses the overview.

My sister recently reminded me of the series "Familie Feuerstein" - "The Flintstones". I must investigate whether it is also on DVD.
Good old times of television. Smile

Hi there

Caty, , Robin Hood, I saw it several times, it was the first Disney Film I had...Hillarious the way that dumb goes in his mouth and he's squirms with his ear..
And tell you a secret, I've got Bambi to,
Laughing

And we've also got the same taste for movies, MASH, I love it!!!!
Also the tv series!

Firstday, Flinstones, terriffic!!! The Jetsons were also great and not to mention the Simpsons ofcourse, but that is still a hit today!

Loved the youtube film, saw it before, poor Rick... I feel sorry for him a bit, he's not so happy about it at the end.. Now the feeling, kids can say everything no matter where they are or when.. Sometimes I see my kids think, just at the wrong timing ofcourse, and I wish that they don't say a word and just keep thinking, but that wish never comes true, and I love it!

Ok only my thoughts here, why everybody apologize for looking disney in a certain age.
I looked up the cover of several disney movies, they say you can watch it age 0 ore 6 and older, there is no sign of "hey oldie you are not allowed to watch this movie only kids have the right to do so!" Twisted Evil

Trust me you are never to old to make a fool out of yourself! And trust me i know what i'm talking about Wink

So in gods name (hope no lightning will struck me Wink) watch what make you happy and be proud of you age. Life is short enough.

I thought first the same. A teenager who not mince matters. Smile

But it should be an incentive. With humor something can be better formulated.
Unfortunately Rick feels sometimes gloomy about the future.
That sounds so: I'm an old man. I'm fat and slow. I'm almost bald.

Self-knowledge is good, self-abandonment the beginning of the end.
Aging begins in the thoughts, when you give up yourself.
We don't wish this for Rick.

As "astrologer" I can say that the star sign Aquarius has some time to do with planet Saturn. This is a very "strict" planet.
But don't worry, dear, freedom-loving Aquarius. This too will pass.

I'm an Aquarius too but never believed in superstition Twisted Evil
But I'm also an amateur astronomer and I know how "much" influence the stars have in our lives Laughing

No offence, FirstDay, everyone can have it his/her own way Wink

Rick is young at heart and he has his pretty young daughter whom he loves very much. I don't think he is gloomy for real, maybe he flirts only a little bit with his age and you saw it in Toronto, he got the answers he needed Wink

This is stupendously because the star sign Aquarius is associated with astrology! Mr. Green

Scientists have never admitted that they believe in "esotericism".
And I don't belong to those who would argue about it.
But astrology can be very helpful with self-knowledge.
I may say this, because I deal since years with this. Smile

It's also a good subject of conversation.
One may also contribute a little humor.
It changes not the world, and not all galaxies, but it makes some things a little more pleasant.

PS: I can tell "you" - or whoever wants to know it - that my Chinese star sign is Dragon. No joke!
RDA, please, take me along to Dragon*Con. Smile
