The Greatest Cartoons Featuring The Sweet Science
The what? Boxing. It’s boxing. The Sweet Science is just one of those terms old-timey folks used to describe the brutal viciousness and melodic prancing of boxing. I can’t imagine a more bizarre term to adequately convey a relatively simple sport featuring large men in silky shorts thumping the squash out of one another for as long as they can stand up, but there you have it: The Sweet Science. So, with that out of the way, here’s a few toons where our titular heroes float like butterflies and sting like… insects with stingers.
Daffy Duck – “To Duck or Not To Duck”
Bugs Bunny – “Rabbit Punch”
Popeye – “Punch and Judo”
Popeye – “Let’s You and Him Fight”
Popeye – “Spinach Packin’ Popeye”
Sylvester and Hippity Hopper – “Pop ‘im, Pop!”
Bosko – “Battling Bosko”
Looney Tunes – “Boulevardier From the Bronx”
How about a couple examples of the just as exciting but significantly less ‘Sweet’ science of Wrestling!
Droopy – “The Chump Champ”
Bugs Bunny – “Bunny Hugged”
