Feature Presentation - Tales of the Spontoon  Islands.  An episode from the series, Rosie's Place, called "It's Shot From Guns".  Dimbulb fox brothers, B'onss and K'nutt are sent off to do the laundry for Lu Chow's restaurant.  B'onss powers the washing machine with an airplane engine, and it goes on from there.  And we meet some of the other regulars at Rosie's Place.  

The Spontoon Archipelago is a set of islands in the Pacific ocean inhabited by funny animal cartoons and seaplanes.  The time is between 1920 and 1945.  Cartoonists from around the world contribute comic strips and stories.  E. O. Costello contributes radio scripts, reminiscent of Old Time Radio, but evocative of the islands time and place.  (http://spontoon.rootoon.com/SPwRdoCn.html
