Follow the jump to watch "One Cab's Family"

Judging by your comments, watching "Susie the Little Blue Coupe" yesterday brought back memories for many of you. Another thing that became very apparent is that you also hold Tex Avery's 1952 short, "One Cab's Family" in extremely high regard, and commenter "raf 280z" stuck a link to it in the thread. Like Susie, the Cab family's story is an endlessly re-watchable classic. Mom and Dad taxi welcome their adorable little boy into the family garage (note the wallpaper border inside -- one of many great touches), but as junior gets older, he gets a little rebellious, and trouble follows -- big trouble. So, grab your kids, sit back and enjoy it after the jump. "Nurse, check his oil, fill 'im up with gas and we'll take him home!"

      I like the old school cartoons. Beats what's out there now where everything has to be blessed by the "PC" police.

        Where did all the good stuff like this go? I hate growing up in the 90s.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Hahaha, I'm right there with ya man. Maybe one day the stuff we grew up with will be appreciated.....maybe...

      in the 80 all this was awesome, i loved every minute of it thanks guys.

      now think about the BS that parents would have a problem with today:
      1-encourage to race
      2-scene were you think a character dies run over a train (too violent for kids)
      3-the woman can't go save her son herself (sexist)
      4-encourages kids to trick their parent with a "good exterior"

      i remember watching this before i even started preschool or around that time. good times.

      One of my fav old cartoons was "Cars of Tomorrow", a spoof an an auto show or Autorama type event. That was endlessly repeated on afternoons on WTTG 5 in the Wash DC footprint. My little brother and I laughed endlessly to that one.

      Great cartoon.

      I just hate the really poor quality of YouTube video.
      • 6 Years Ago
