Weekly Cartoon News Bites

Wile E. Coyote has finally settled his $5 million dollar lawsuit with the ACME company for gross product negligence. Coyote released the following statement to the media after the ruling was made.
"I'm happy with the courts ruling. It won't compensate me for all of the injuries I have sustained throughout the years, but it will help. I hope others, who have been harmed by large companies, will have the courage to come forward and make a stand."
When asked why a self proclaimed super genius continued buying the ACME products, even after near death mishaps, the Coyote annoyingly quipped "No comment!"

Former child star Scrappy Cornelius Paul Campbell Doo re-entered a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center in Santa Monica on September 4th. Sources close to the Doo family say that Scrappy relapsed early this year after his mother Ruby Doo passed away and that he was out of control. Sources also say that an intervention was held at Freddie Jones' house and that all of Scrappy Doo's friends and family were there to encourage him to get help. This is Scrappy's third time in rehab, but the only time that it was not court ordered. Paparazzi snapped photos of Scooby Doo, Scooby Dum, and Norville "Shaggy" Rogers coming out of the rehab center after a Sunday family visitation.

With the support of his Neptunes band mates (Biff, Shelly, Bubbles, and Clamhead), Jabberjaw has come clean about his music career. "The drum tracks on The Neptunes albums were not mine. They were done by a studio drummer and I merely pretended to be playing."
The Neptunes released 3 albums during their short lived television career. While the show was more about light hearted case solving, the music did add an enticing element to the show. Jabberjaw was already set to play the lead, when the idea of making the characters part of a band was added by the shows executive producer. Even though Jabberjaw was willing to learn to play the drums for the show, the absence of fingers and opposable thumbs made it impossible. For the shows music montages, the drumsticks were heavily taped to Jabberjaw's fins and he would mimic the drummer's movements.
The Jabberjaw incident was not a secret to the television industry. However, he was given credit for playing the drums in the bands music catalog and was paid the royalties. Jabberjaw was told to not speak out about the secret and that the real drummer was being compensated. Years later, Jabberjaw found out that was not the case and has had real remorse about the secret. That is why he decided to go public with an apology and give the real drummer, Neil Peart, his long deserved credit.
