Fun With Scissors - part 76

Fangface is one of two later 70s/early 80s cartoons that, to me, represented the end of decent Saturday morning animated series (until the mid-90s). Fangface, employed that gimmick used by a number of animated shows which supplied a a whole slew of despised nephew characters. Plastic Man had one, Scooby-Doo had Scrappy-Doo, and Fangface had Fangpus.

As for the other show that killed quality Saturday morning entertainment, stay tuned...

Or, should that be "tooned"?

I love it, for some reason it makes me want to see your version of Count Chocula!

I've thought about including some cereal mascots. To be honest, as a kid, many advertising characters seemed as legitimate as cartoon characters like Yogi Bear, and Bugs Bunny. I lived for the Starkist commercials with Charlie the Tuna.
