Unique to local independent television stations from the mid 1960s until the late 1980s, this phrase is a euphemism for "variety of cartoons we got cheap from a fly-by-night syndication distributor, which will probably include pre-1948 color Warner Bros. cartoons that, if you kids are lucky today, will include Porky Pig or perhaps a very manic Daffy Duck and not bizarre characters jumping out of magazines and dancing after a bookstore has been closed for the night."

Also known as: "Bugs Bunny and Pals," "Bugs, Daffy, and Friends," "The Channel (insert number here) Cartoon Club"

Not to be confused with: "Tom and Jerry and Friends," which is essentially the same except that the package includes MGM cartoons instead of Warner Bros.
