I bought this out of a lust for classic cartoons and now that I'm older I appreciate this show all the more. Every episode is a delight of the senses. It's a shame what modern animators are vomiting out under the same name.
I was trying to use these in a performance but found that the material was thinner than a napkin. I can't comment on how good they'd be against paint but I have a feeling they wouldn't stop it for long.
