    "Well, in the top comments, one user states "This app has very few animi (sic) shows" with an accompanying one star review. So I don't know if I could call this the best. Especially considering the solution, which implies that anime can be streamed. "

    "Well, other than the name making me want to go find some egg rolls that are good and crunchy at the local Chinese place, I'm thinking the name needs some work. Again, this seems to accommodate the anime folks out there, but what if I want to stream some GARFIELD?! There are other tastes out there for cartoons!"

    "This is a great idea. I really was looking forward to using this to watch cartoons. However, it has bad quality for me. Maybe its just me."


Did you know that Bugs Bunny has once saved a life? Alright, the thought of a cartoon character saving somebody's life may strike you as fantastical, but if it wasn't for him, Mel Blanc would have passed away too soon. An animated cartoon created by Warner Bros. in the late 1930s, Bugs is well-known for arresting the hearts of his audiences through his captivating charisma. With his charming Brooklyn accent, gleeful disposition, and unmatched wit, who doesn't love Bugs? Truth be told, many creators have lent their talent to mold his character. In fact, every creator of Bugs Bunny is part and parcel of his success. This Looney Tunes member wouldn't have been one of the most celebrated characters in the world of cartoons without them.

One of the most significant persons behind the character is his voice actor Mel Blanc. However, that voice would have been gone as early as 1961. Thanks to Bugs, the dedicated voice actor would go on to live until 1989. This was after a fatal car accident rendered Blanc unconscious for three weeks. After the accident, Blanc's loved ones received a plethora of letters wishing for his speedy recovery. Some even addressed their mail to "Bugs Bunny." Sadly, after several attempts at bringing him back to life, it seemed that it was his time. Until a creative doctor found a way to reach Blanc's subconscious. Instead of talking to Blanc, he tried to address him as Bugs Bunny. Not long after, Blanc responded in the voice of Bugs. After his recovery, Blanc was thankful for the character he voiced for giving him another chance at life.

    "It's a fact that now we live in an era where instead of channels, you just have to install an app for each. That's lame for people my age, who remember when you could just turn on a TV and have everything right there, with the dial of a knob. TVs used to have knobs (look it up, kids). That said, as far as these silly apps go, Cartoon Network's isn't as annoying as some, and it lets me binge on Futurama. That's good enough for me."

    "Hulu is a fairly reasonable option if you're looking for apps to stream cartoons. I enjoyed using it for that purpose, but keep in mind if you're looking for anime, then you need to find another app. "
