Although I try to stay away from sensitive political topics, I could not help but share this optimistic cartoon from Time Magazine’s “Cartoons of the Week” feature.

Goofy Stops Smoking [Disney]

Goofy Stops Smoking” Walt Disney was a chain smoker. In 1966, he was scheduled to undergo a neck surgery for an old polo injury, but a pre-surgery X-ray showed a large tumor in his left lung. Doctors ultimately removed the lung, but Disney died later that year. In 1951, Disney produced a short clip titled “No Smoking” of Goofy trying to quit smoking. The company banned the cartoon from TV broadcast.”
