I will be a kid forever and ever. Okay, a big kid at heart at least. I love the cartoons of the 60's and 70's. Remember Saturday morning cartoons? My sister Coy and I lived for them. We loved the darn things so much that we learned the words to all of the songs. One of my favorite cartoons was the Jetsons! I loved all the futuristic things. I loved how Jane could just press a button and dinner was served. Remember the Food-A-Rack-Cycle,LOL. I love the cartoons of today as well, but there was just something so special about those Saturday morning cartoons back-in-the-day. One of my favorite Jetson's episodes is with "Jet Screamer," he was a singer. Judy Jetson was trying to write a song for a contest to go on a date with Jet. Anyway, Jet Screamer picks Judy's song written by her little brother (Elroy)the song was called, " Eep Opp Ork Ah Ah!" I still sing this song. Stop laughing. It means, "I love you." I love the graphics from the show so much that I wanted to capture it in my own way. Have a Eep Opp Ork Ah Ah kind-a day.

Eep Opp Ork Ah Ah...Dang, now that's going to be stuck in my head for a long time! :D Love these happy little creatures and vibrant colors. You know what? I had that exact episode in my head the second you mentioned Jetsons. How crazy is that?! I feel like I'm always watching cartoons with my kids, and there are a few that I actually find really entertaining. The old ones were great, but I like how today's cartoons are a little more empowering to girls. Thanks for the trip down memory lane! Oh, and Vaness? Eep Opp Ork Ah Ah.

The same thing that bella sinclair said happened to her happened to me when I first started reading your post. Eep Opp Ork Ah Ah-I love it! The old cartoons seemed much more innocent than todays, don't they?
