Stamp Day, France

well, after quite some time, here i am with a post for Viridian's Sunday Stamps.

the theme today is Cartoons and Cartoon-like drawings...well, here is a very nice cartoon cover - couldnt get any more cartoonesque I think :)

On 28 February and 1 March 2009, 116 cities in France (in 92 departments) hosted the 10th edition of the "Fête du Timbre" ("Stamp Fair").

and as it has been the case since 1999, the French Post has chosen for this Stamp Day some comic book and children's literature heroes as topic in order to attract more young people towards the collection of stamps.
So here you have the Looney Tunes characters, that im sure most of you are familiar with :)

Im happy to be an owner of this cover with the three stamps that were issued (€ 0.56 each), where you can see Bugs Bunny and Duffy Duck, then on the next stamp are Wile E. Coyotte and the Roadrunner, and on the final stamp you have Tweety and Sylvester.

above the stamp you can also see the souvenir sheet, consisting of one € 1.00 stamp, where apart from the above mentioned characters, you can also see Taz (the Tasmanian Devil), Marvin the Martian and Yosemite Sam.

I loved watching these cartoons when I was little (and not so little). And out of all these, Sylvester is probably my favourite...probably coz of being a cat...and his clumsiness...though Sylvester Jr. was even cuter :) And I just cant stay indifferent to that lisping-talk :)

thanks a lot to Eric for sending me this cover (from whom I also stole some of the information regarding the stamps :))

well, wishing you a good Sunday and great week ahead. For more cartoon-like stuff, click on the button below


  1. I like coyote and roadrunner the best, myself. Thanks for joining in this week.

  2. ahh sylvester, so awkward and cute...but cannot decide which character i sympathised with more, him or the coyote..!

  3. these older cartoons are so much better than the ones out now. or is that just my age showing? :)

  4. The Looney Tunes characters!! I guess I prefer them more over the Disney characters. I grew up watching them in the 80s. Great stamps, they remind me so much of my childhood!

  5. I was hoping that Tweety Pie would be on your video. Great cover.

  6. And my favorites were Daffy Duck and Porky Pig. Those shows were always so completely silly and absolutely hilarious!

  7. Just the Loony Tunes theme puts a smile on my face. Wish we had a stamp day here. I think Roadrunner was my favourite, meep meep.

  8. so I guess im not the only one who prefers the older cartoons to the new ones...maybe it is my age too VioletSky :)

    I just cant tell if i prefer Looney Tunes or Disney...both have their cool good characters :)

    thank you all for the is nice to see you all loved the Looney Tunes and have your own favourites :)
    I also noticed there was no Tweety in the video and the famous 'I tot I taw a putty tat' :) sorry..

    ps. Bryon, I found Daffy and Porky, dorky them! :)
