How's the future going to see us?
5 November 2008 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

I remember having seen Robert McKimson's "Wild Wild World" on TV when I was about five. I only loosely understood it - I mostly interpreted cavemen hitting dinosaurs with clubs - and my favorite part was the end scene. Now that I'm old enough to understand the cartoon, I feel that it begs the question of how the future will see our society. Specifically, what will they think of certain choices that we made (or didn't make)? OK, so maybe that doesn't really matter. Most of the jokes in this cartoon are the sort of innocuously silly gags that characterized many of the celebrity spoofs seen in Warner Bros. cartoons. Among other things, by the time that this cartoon came out, the Warner Bros. animation department had clearly passed its prime - after "What's Opera, Doc?", they could only go down - to the point that the studio heads closed the animation department in 1963. An OK cartoon.
