Some Real Coloring and Kids' Books

At last Barney gets his own starring vehicle.
We didn't have VCRs when I was a kid so it was hard to copy cartoon drawings from the actual cartoons. I used to instead copy the drawings from comic books, coloring books and Golden books. These weren't usually drawn by animators (although some were) but it was the best school for cartooning I could get! - Comic strips too, of course.
People are lucky today; they can study classic cartoons frame by frame, there are tons of blogs with info about the old cartoons and even lessons. So why do cartoons look crappier than ever?
