in reply to My favorite cartoon is

It's a sad day when Tom & Jerry is skipped from polls like this.

Why is T&J so great?
Because unlike cartoons such as Sylvester and Tweety (I hate that damned yellow bird), sometimes the cats actually wins.

    I'd say the reason for T&J is Chuck Jones.
    Chuck Jones! Chuck Jones! Chuck Jones!

    Besides, Tom and Jerry can easily become allies to beat a common enemy. I think this makes the plot really unpredictable (well, at least when you consider that that bird's adventures are all the same).
