A Crazy Cartoon Bus


When part of my family was visiting the Oahu in Hawaii, they sent me this picture of a 'Family Fun Bus' with various cartoon and video game characters painted all over it. The best thing about this kitsch little piece of American pop culture? It's got Br'er Rabbit on it, a character who hasn't been seen outside of the Disney ride Splash Mountain for years due to racial controversy surrounding the film The Song of the South. (For a challenge, try to name all the cartoons appearing on the bus. If you can, you win the title of 'Animation Nerd of the Year.')
