Cartoon where train track is moving while train is oncoming?

Can you identify for me, if it even exists, a cartoon (perhaps Bugs Bunny or other Hanna-Barbera) where some character averts disaster by dismanting and rebuilding the train track in front of a moving train? Perhaps a villain had previously done the same in order to move the train for some reason.

How should I go about selling an original Peanuts comic strip?

I was given a signed original pen-and-ink Peanuts cartoon by Charles Schultz over 40 years ago. It features Lucy and Snoopy atop his dog house. It is a weekday strip, so it is not in color. It is copyrighted 1974 by United Features Syndicate. I would like to sell it, but I am unsure where the best market is and how best to sell it. I would welcome suggestions.

Chinese puns poster online?

Someone made a cool image illustrating some large number (more than 30 but less than 100?) of puns/proverbs/idioms in Chinese (I think Mandarin, but don't remember.) There was a key in English to each of the puns/proverbs/idioms, but the image had no words on it. Naturally, I lost the bookmark and can't find it now that I want to show someone else. Can you help?

Lunatic Cartoon Crazy-making Music

I’m looking to assemble a compilation or reference list for a type of music that I’ve always been drawn to, which is stuff that sounds simultaneously cartoony and loose, maybe a little clangy, almost a bit sinister, like the music has a hold over you and that infects you with this primal energy makes you feel out of control, like you’re going to morph into Animal from the Muppets.

Looking for an old political cartoon: "Don't let him take your cookie"

There's an old political cartoon which I can't find. A cat sits on a pile of cookies. A mouse (possibly with his mouse family behind him) holds a cookie. A second mouse labelled as a union representative holds a crumb or takes a piece from the first mouse. The cat says "are you going to let him take your cookie?" or similar. [more inside]

What is this piece of dreary animation with a hitchhiking birdperson?

I'd like to find the original source for this piece of animation that someone put up on Youtube behind a Ween song. It's bleak, probably French, and features a man repeatedly driving to and from his job in a town hall. He picks up a hitchhiking birdperson and they drive to the land of birdpeople.

Name that 60s or 70s cartoon! Flies and a matchbox.

Google-fu fail. In the late 60 or early 70s, as a kid in Detroit, I remember a Saturday morning cartoon (possibly just a short within a cartoon variety show) featuring a dragonfly, a horsefly, and, I think, a fruit fly. They lived in a matchbox. I remember it being my "favorite show" at some point. Keep in mind it very well may have been a one-off that the years have converted into a series in my mind. [more inside]

Comic strip with a dog-shaped suitcase?

This has been driving me crazy. I have a strong memory of a comic strip, I think it was a The Far Side by Gary Larson. I can't remember the setup or punchline, but there was a picture of a suitcase shaped like a dog, with a handle on top of the dog's back as if you could put a dog inside and it would fit exactly. (The dog would probably suffocate unfortunately, but hey it's a cartoon) [more inside]

Thems are fighting words! (Takes him a while to boot up)

In the early 1990s I saw a bizarre marketing video for OS/2. It was a cartoon of about 20 min. It featured anthropomorphic computers with screens for faces walking around a Wild West town. The DOS Brothers (which include DOS and WIN) overrun the town's sheriff, OS/2 V1.0. Then the new marshal, OS/2 V2.0 comes into town and cleans things up. Is there somewhere I could see a copy of this video or are there even any records that it existed? [more inside]

Red or orange hardcover darkly funny book about mental illness

I saw a book on a "featured" table last winter in a bookstore, which enchanted me, but I don't remember any of the key features that would allow me to buy it; namely author or title. I remember that it was red or orange, hardcover, consisted (mostly) of illustrations, was darkly funny, was written by a British man (?) and contained cartoony scenarios ruminating on anxiety or depression. Any idea what the book was? I assume that it was a new publication around the end of 2013. I think the title had the word "Brain" in it. [more inside]

Identify this cartoon!

Sometime between 1990-1995, I recall watching a TV cartoon about a teenage-ish girl, her brother, and a bunch (maybe 10?) of roughly people-sized talking robots. One of the robots was baseball-themed (carried a baseball bat, etc). The girl wore a yellow-and-black striped bandana that looked like caution tape. This is all I remember about this show. Anyone else recall this cartoon?

What propaganda cartoon was playing in San Diego MOPA in 2005-06?

Help me track down a WWII propaganda cartoon that played in the San Diego Museum of Photographic Arts' entrance gallery, probably sometime in 2006? I have a memory of watching a WWII propaganda cartoon on an early date with my eventual wife. We sat & chatted on the bench in the entrance gallery while the cartoon was projected onto the big wall in between the entrance & exit thresholds. I remember an imp-like creature, possibly doing some sabotage. I'm pretty sure it wasn't Dr. Seuss' "Private SNAFU", although I suppose I could be wrong. I don't remember it being particularly racist, which ought to help narrow it down a bit. Do you know which cartoon that was? I'd really like to get a picture of that imp from my memory.

Identify cartoon featuring a forest feast inside a tree.

I'm trying to remember and find a clip online of a cartoon from my childhood. I don't believe it was a series. It featured a community of forest animals and from what I remember, focused on them collecting food for the winter. But there was one animal who refused to help collect food. When winter finally came, all the other animals were inside (a tree?) having a feast, while the lone animal who refused was stuck outside in the cold/snow. He/she trudged over to the door (of the tree) and they let him inside and everyone ate. Any ideas?
