I tried it from a Windoze machine at work with Flash installed.
It shows this:

Personally, I would not call it a "good use of Flash". It adds nothing of value and excludes the users without Flash.
My take on websites like that is, "you don't want me, I don't want you."

All of the cartoons and games on that site are Flash-based. It really has nothing for you if you don't have Flash, but then it dates from a time when everyone had it.

It's really worth watching some. The earlier cartoons aren't so good, but they did some really funny material later on especially the sbemails and derived games like Trogdor and Ye Adventurer. Classic. I think the brothers that did it work on some top notch Cartoon Network stuff now.

A good point. I did not go beyond the splash screen. I could say that the "come on in" option misled me into thinking there was something beyond without the need for Flash but in all fairness, it did not promise anything of that sort.

You don't need flash.. but what do you really need? Food, water, oxygen and the rest is optional. I use Flash mainly for watching live streaming sites on my desktop that provide soccer matches. Granted, those sites are a bit dodgy but there are no other free non-flash solutions.
I will always prefer a non-flash alternative but have no problem using it if there is stuff I like.
Anyone that has doubts about flash security can download a Puppy Linux iso - create a bootable CD or USB. Make sure it will not mount your drives and start it fully in memory. Worst thing that can happen is a reboot. (and if you are really paranoid start it in a VM)


I will not install any version on my N900 though. That just seems like looking for trouble.
