Cartoons -- they provide entertainment and important life lessons.

While we bask in the humor that is Wile E. Coyote repeatedly failing to catch the Road Runner, Homer Simpson shouting "D'oh!" and Bugs Bunny exclaiming, "What's up, Doc?," you probably had no idea that these iconic characters (and many more) were actually teaching you things you'd need to know as you get set to tackle the world.

Maybe that's why that hashtag  was trending on Twitter on Monday. The twittersphere has gotten together to thank these animated legends and antics for showing us the right (and wrong) way to make it through our days.

So, toss the keys to your Mystery Machine down, grab an anvil to hunker down and light a stick of Acme dynamite that you mistakenly thought was a cigar and enjoy these terrific tweets.
