I got Jackson the first disc of the Pink Panther cartoon series (thank you, Netflix). It's important for children to get their daily allotment of laughter and educational TV isn't doing it for us. Why must educational animation be so earnest? There's some exceptions, of course, but what a snore-fest for us adult care-takers. We can only learn so much about getting along and how to spell before we need to watch someone slam into a wall and bounce back, unscathed. It's important to our well-being, dammit. Don't ask me why.
Jackson just announced that he's laughed so hard, his tummy hurts. What a legacy for creator Friz Freleng.
