Today is my birthday. Although turning 39 is not as exciting as turning 6 or 16 was I discovered something today that got me pumped up. Today is also the birthday of the Tazmanian Devil! I also discovered that I share a birthday with Paula Abdul, Salman Rushdie, and Garfield, but none of them are as cool as Taz.
Taz and I have something else in common as well. The story goes that after the first cartoon featuring Taz entered theaters, the head of Warner Bros animation ordered that Taz not be used again because the character was "too obnoxious". I have been accused of the same thing.
Taz made a comeback and is responsible for what I think is the funniest line spoken in a Looney Tunes cartoon. If you know what it is leave a comment. The prize for a correct answer will be the satisfaction of knowing that you watched too much TV as a child!
Have a happy Tazmanian Devil day!
