I am not sure why I find so hilarious the recurrent Saturday Night Live skit of Toonces the Driving Cat. Likely the part of me that appreciates absurdist humor plays a part, but the the escapades of Toonces tap some hidden part of my psyche I cannot quite define.
Here is one of the better episodes, where the rebellious Toonces falls in with a tough crowd:
It did not surprise me to learn today that the Toonces concept was created by SNL writer Jack Handey, he of "Deep Thoughts" fame, a feature I also enjoyed during the near-decade Handey's work was a staple.
So laugh, groan, or cry along with Toonces and his various owners, but remember: TOONCES LIVES.
