Toons, the Cartoon Roleplaying Game.

Greg Costikyan and Warren Spector came with this wacky concept for RPG where players are invited to play the role of a cartoon character. And they are allowed to perform like them.

First this easy to play RPG - amazingly not related to GURPS, although is a Steve Jackson game - reproduces the craziness of cartoons by introducing wacky skills (Chutzpah skills), like fast talk, curious tools (Shticks) with powers like streching and one amazing power: you never die. Yep, that's right. Have you ever see a cartoon star dying? 

Although you fall from a mountain while playing blindman's buff or sit on top of a nuclear weapon exploding when you tried to make a phone call to your granny, it doesn't matter: you'll return next scene.

This game is full of settings and adventures, including cartoon series. A must have for every Steve Jackson Games fans and if you try to find something very different. But perhaps not for new players, although is quite easy to play. The problem: you need to understand very well the illogical logic of cartoons.
