Pisa, Not A Cartoon Gag.

How many Saturday Morning cartoons did I watch with the Tower of Pisa as a center of joke? Always the same gag, the character’s actions either shift or straighten the famed structure. Never mind the animation jokes, the 14th century architectural work is worth the trip to Pisa. As one of the most recognized designed forms, I had a sense of amazement walking up to the Tower, a soft, noble elegant presence that even tourist doing the common pose could not cheapen.
