Oh, Toonces. I loved Toonces. I think that was the last time SNL was genuinely funny.

Bully said...

Toonces would make me fall on the floor with laughter. It's such a brilliant but simple concept, and even though (like so much on SNL) they did it over and over again with the same joke, it was still hilarious. I recently found my Toonces coffee mug and I'm thinking twice about putting it up on eBay now.

Toones is the bestest kitty ever and the finest ping pong player next to Spunky...they really go tat it.

Siskoid asks: "Is that a real thing?"

Only if there's any justice in the 'net!

I've joked about writing it for years - while hoping someone would have beat me to it.
