Nickelodeon meets Famous Studios- a title sequence

Only someone with a skill in Flash could animate this opening title sequence to look exactly like a Famous Studios cartoon from the 40's and 50's. I just couldn't imagine someone else obessing over the original Paramount titles of a Famous Studios cartoon to the degree that they wanted to make their own opening. It's been done to death in Looney Tunes, but to use an opening that would broaden the library of the Famous Studios cartoon is just something. I swore on this one UPN news program that they used some sort of Paramount Famous Studios-era mountain look for the backdrop framed on the back of the extreme shot of the anchors. Guess that memory and the Paramount Teleplex helped with the branding of a United Paramount Network. But that's about it- nobody's done a cartoony mountain in the spirit of whatever Famous Studios animator painted those logos. (Of course, Harvey's mascot is another reminder of Paramount openings). Without further ado.....
