For some reason, the “GNAP!” episode of the Smurfs
has been in my head lately, so I went searching for more information on it just
because I can
. I ran across
review on epinions
, which proved to be some entertaining
light reading last night.

Says the author: ”But as I grew older and analytically
studied cartoons (while skipping class in college), I realized something. Nearly all
cartoon animators are tweaked out of their minds on drugs when making cartoons”.

For your reading pleasure, he also specifically documents
exactly which drugs the animators must have been on. A nice thorough review of an
important topic.
