Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kids

How a sardonic adult western ever loaned its name to a sappy kids' cartoon will remain forever a mystery. Whose brainstorm was that? In any case, please revel in the ghastly animation.

And if this happens to be a potent nostalgic item for you, you can buy the recently released complete series at Warner Archives.

Wikipedia entry here.

More weirdness from the WU archive:

Crap of this ilk is what replaced animation on TV.

BTW, What's'erName and I just watched Butch & Sundance the other night. It's hard to believe that 43 years have passed since then.

I figured that this cartoon genre was intended to showcase generic studio bands. Nameless musicians who knew someone who could get them a gig. I didn't watch these at the time.

There were others:

The Archies
Josie and The Pussycats

I always liked The Banana Splits - at least they used live costumed actors.

Scooby Doo knock offs, all of them, and none of them were as good as the original!
