the other day i picked up a cheapo dvd of the pink panther cartoons. one thing i miss is watching cartoons that i can understand. nearly all the cartoons shown here in taiwan are dubbed into mandarin often without any chinese subtitles even(most shows here have chinese subtitles regardless of language being used). one of the few shows i could watch and still understand was the pink panther since there is usually no speaking in those cartoons, it all works visually. has there ever been a cartoon as sophisticated and hip as the pink panther? i think not.
