This and the Mighty Mouse are soooooooooooooooooooo disappointing. With the first page of the Mighty Mouse and the variant covers of the DC/Looney Tunes Specials, the comics companies are saying, Here is the cartoon comics you really want, for one image, but we are going to give you this lameness for the rest of the issue instead. 

All of the DC Hanna Barbera Annuals A-Stories were great. Snagglepuss was good but short. Jetsons was fine, but I wish had character designs they did turn arounds with. Top Cat was disturbing. With bad DC character designs for Batman and Catwoman. Ruff and Reddy was fine. So these might not suck, but…

What if comic companies were not afraid of Cartoon Comics?
