SMOKING IS NOT KOOL, VOL. 1 by AcmeCoyote

TOM: "This PC parody has a comical appeal to it...and great (terrible!) drawing of Popeye!"

DAFFY DUCK AND FRIENDS by JPox

JON: This one isn't as ugly as it is scary... it's scary how real this thing looks!

Each of our honorable mentions will be getting a Columbia House Woody Woodpecker & Friends VHS collection!

And now... THE 2007 WINNERS!!!!!

3rd place: CLASSIC CAVELCADE CARTOONS by mikematei

TOM: "Wonderful menagerie of insulting character drawings. Flip the Frog looks like he has been living in a toxic swamp, and Bosko has apparently had a stroke. Random shape in the background is a perfect parody of actual PD tapes, and this gave me a good laugh."

He wins copies of Flintstones Season 5 and Looney Tunes - Bah, Humduck on DVD!

2nd place: FELIX CAT by Bugsmer

TOM: "Felix graphic and titles listed are excellent- and what cartoon ever starred "Icy Tree"?!?!"

He wins copies of The Complete Pluto, Vol. 2 and Walt Disney's Tomorrowland on DVD!

AND NOW... THE MOMENT YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR....


Beautiful, isn't it???

We proudly present the Termite Terrace Trading Post's highest (?) honor, the coveted Golden Farmer Porky Award, to the TTTP's Ugliest PD Tape Cover of 2007.....

1st place: BUGS BUNNY AND FRIENDS by UncleLina

TOM: "Amazing and Creepy! It seems a near-suicidal move was made by this "Company" to show just how old these cartoons are...by making the characters look so old! A great idea that never crossed my mind."

A few words from this year's winner, UncleLina: "My inspiration was a gut wrenchingly ugly Bugs Bunny poster my mum got from a guy on the street, got it when i was 6 years old , the thing was very very creepy and ugly, it would put any cover from the "Hall Of Fame" to shame. I'm really glad I won the contest, I don't have any fancy photo editing programs so I tried my best with Paint. oh well Thanks for selecting me. :) "

He wins copies of The Pink Panther & Friends: The Ant & The Aardvark and Looney Tunes Spotlight Collection, Vol. 4 on DVD!

That's all, folks! Thanks to everybody who entered!
