Not really a cartoon or in the Golden Era but I had to mention it. Probably should not have been watching MTV but thank god for older siblings. The show had a simple concept and that's what made it so damn creative. It was a variety show, hosted by two sock puppets accompanied by a cast of characters. This show had a secret element, that "what the hell is going on but I can't stop watching" element. It taught me the importance of timing, tone and voice, and the art of total tomfoolery. Sometimes funny can't be explained it’s just a gut reaction. Honestly, I can not think of another show to compare this to. Sifl and Olly was a testament to a certain time, back when MTV was great and wasn't concerned about being hip and cool it simply was.
My sense of humor is reflected in how I present myself and the work I produce. The show examples along with others served as my foundation for what I find amusing whether its the exaggeration, randomness, absurdity, or just finding the beauty in something making no sense. There are all showcase imagination and creativity.
