I'm actually in the middle of watching the first season of Rocky and Bullwinkle right now (of course I started it a couple of months ago so it hasn't been the biggest priority). There is a lot of humor in the dialogue that can be interpreted differently for kids and adults, which is always fun. I enjoy them, but I'm not crazy about them. The secondary characters don't hold up very well for me (except I find Mr. Peabody pretty funny). There are some good nuggets in there, but they require patience to find.
The one thing I have really appreciated about the DVD "revolutiion" has been the multiple quality collections of cartoons released at reasonable prices. The Warner sets are great (though I would prefer them released and grouped by character), the Disney Treasures have released some fabulous materials. In the last year the Woody Woodpecker set was great and I am still looking to get my hands on the big Popeye set that was released last year. I have a collection of Pink Panther toons on my shelf that I haven't cracked open yet. I guess all this would qualify me as a "Toonhead".
