Can you get hold of any of the old Mr. Peabody and Sherman cartoons, they were on the Rockie and Bullwinkle show, and some other cartoon shows also.

Sherman was the kid and Mr. Peabody was a dog, they went back in time or something similar to historical events, and it always ended with some gawd-awful pun as the moral of the story.

are you kidding? i grew up on that stuff! rocky and bullwinkle ("watch me pull a rabbit outta my hat!"), boris badinoff and natasha, deputy dawg, yogi bear, huckleberry hound, beanie and cecil (i'm coming, beanie boy!") and, to go way back, heckle and jeckle, who i'm pretty sure now would be politically correct on general principle. (the awful pun as the moral also reminded me of "fractured fables.")

sure, reb, i can get that. lemme just go down in my vault of timeless tv footage and pull that out . . .

but seriously . . . i'm sure this stuff comes on the cartoon channel every now and then, right?

How old are you folks? I LOVE IT. At least someone knows the same stuff I grew up with! I used to watch those all the time. Even Beanie and Cecil. I was a Kookla, Fran and Ollie kid, and one of my best friends was on Wonderama when we were little.

Rocky and Bullwinkle! Holy Goddess, I grew up watching that stuff- my dad's a big fan. Fractured Fairy Tales, Dudley Do-Right, Mr. Know-It-All, Mr. Peabody and his boy Sherman... aw man, good times, good times. Bad puns, but good times.

I don't know if it would help, but we've got a batch of stuff on VHS...

yup, that was our time. and how could i forget quickdraw mcgraw? and what was the name of that dog that, when he got a bone, he'd start moaning and floating up off the ground? i grew up on shari lewis (and lambchop) songs. "what would you like for dinner tonight? what would hit the spot? you know that you're welcome to most anything we've got!" my brother and i had bunk beds, and we'd "ride" the end frames on top like we were roy rogers and dale evans. while wearing our zorro capes, of course. hahahahahahahahahahahaha!

ahhhhhh, such an innocent time. right before the great awakening. that's why i think "american dreams" is one the best shows on tv. it really, really, REALLY is true to that era. looking back, it's hard to believe what a revolution was occurring, on so many fronts. young people today . . . (i really sound old now, huh?) . . . they just don't get that, how different things were before the civil rights movement, the women's liberation movement, the war protests . . .

okay, but back to cartoons (whew!), queenie, maybe reb can tell us what he's looking for. i don't have a lot of free time, but i could take some vhs snippets and convert them to quicktime video that could be posted and/or downloaded.

Actually Reb doesn't have a clue what he's looking for, something is rattling around in my head, and it has to do with some of the Admiral's headlines, and it's just disjointed thoughts, but for some reason, Mr. Peabody and those gawd-awful puns, reminded me of Admiral and his headlines, maybe create a forum, Admirals Fractured Headlines or something ... I have no idea, you have to watch me early on, when I get up, no Ritalin and the thought train is running off the tracks..

Don't forget Underdog and Sweet Polly Purebred? Quick Draw McGraw and Deputy Dawg, definitely some of my favorites.

"not bird, nor plane, nor even frog. it's just little old me - underdog!" that's what i call my dog all the time.

huckleberry hound was my fave. i wanna say that bone-loving dog was mutley, but i'm not sure. and i loved boris and natasha, who hated "moose and squddle," to say it phonetically. how was that for some cold war cartooning?

The dog's name was Snufles. He is the predecessor to Mutley who appeared later in several cartoons, most prominately in Penelope Pit Stop's show and Wacky Racers. Mutley was a sidekick to the villians in each show.

Yeah, Walter Lantz who drew Woody did have some banter with him on each show. Which was only natural since it was his wife who provided the voice for Woody.

this has now seeped into my dreams because i woke up with a tune in my head. it's not from a cartoon, but you old schoolers should be able to identify it:

"when you least expect it

you're elected

you're the star today

_____! ______ __ ______ ______"

well, let's not get crazy. if i was dreaming about some longtime dead guy, i'd be thinking i'm not getting out enough . . . the TUNE was in my head. but yeah, allen funt, the original reality tv host.

and to think that some of his hijinks were a caution back when.

You folks remember a cartoon about an elephant named Sidney? There was a lion who would always say, "Oh no, it's Sidney - stupid elephant!"

sorry, slovy. i know it's all relative but, in my book, that is NOT old school! lol!

kukla, fran and ollie . . . howdy doody . . . captain kangaroo . . . now THAT'S old school! you can't go much farther back than that because there was no tv! 'course, i myself wasn't born when tv was born (thankfully), but it seems the advent of tv was geared to adults, not kids. oh, there were those old, OLD nondescript cartoons, but none that i can remember by characters. or they were too racist for me to remember fondly, like the african character with a bone in his nose, being boiled in a pot and shit, but i digress . . .

1949: Jay Ward, cartoonist, created "Crusader Rabbit." It was the first cartoon made for TV.

the tv show or the major motion picture?

from your laughter, i'm guessing the movie. hahahahahahahahaha!

these are the "official" lyrics, but i remember singing it slightly differently:

Felix the cat
The wonderful, wonderful cat
Whenever he gets in a fix
He reaches into his bag of tricks

Felix the cat
The wonderful, wonderful cat
You'll laugh so much your sides will ache
Your heart will go pit-a-pat
Watching Felix the wonderful cat

In real life, the man who did the voice of Underdog had a best friend. Who was it?

Mel Blanc provided the voices for many of the Warner Brothers cartoons. What famous Hanna-Barbera character did he voice?

In one Warner Brother's cartoon, Mel Blanc was featured with the voices of some well known celebrities. Who was the main star and what did Mel voice over?

When Mel passed away in 1989, how did Warner Brothers pay tribute to him?

Uh... let's see... Mighty Mouse. Principle hero of my early youth. When I was 5, I tied a bath towel around my neck and took a dive off a clothes hamper. I mean like I thought I could fly. Seriously. You never forget something like that... the floor, I mean. Came up hard and fast and smacked the little jammer right in the chest like I might as well have run out in front of a bus. Don't tell me TV and cartoons don't influence behavior.

Last words... Mighty Mouse!

there were SO many caped characters back then, i think just about every kid did the towel-around-the-neck thing to be one of them or another.

can't do the cartoon trivia quiz, shy, but i'm pretty sure underdog's voice belonged to wally cox. it was a perfect fit. and if top cat came back today, he could be easily played by garry marshall. i can see the guy who did the voice but don't remember his name.

and now, i KNOW i'm gonna get some nods and grins from these two words:

flash gordon.

Yeah, Wally Cox was all I could come up with in the quiz myself, I figured it would be cheating to look it up Wink I never ran into Flash Gordon for some reason, I definitely watched Zorro and Davy Crockett and Disney on Sundays.

Wally Cox was the voice of Underdog. You'd never guess in a million years who his best friend was. It was Marlon Brando.

The former is "Way Out Space Nuts", the latter is "The Lost Saucer".

What about Clutch Cargo, the creepy show that had cartoon characters with real lips?

Who did the voice for Top Cat?

Arnold Stang. You might remember him from a lot of films or tv, but you'll recognize him as one of the two desert gas station owners (the little one) in the film, It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.

Who did Underdog?

Wally Cox

In real life, the man who did the voice of Underdog had a best friend. Who was it?

Marlon Brando

Mel Blanc provided the voices for many of the Warner Brothers cartoons. What famous Hanna-Barbera character did he voice?

Barney Rubble

In one Warner Brother's cartoon, Mel Blanc was featured with the voices of some well known celebrities. Who was the main star and what did Mel voice over?

Jack Benny. He along with Mel, Mary Livingstone, Don Wilson and Eddie Anderson (as Rochester) did a cartoon where Jack dreams he and his friends are all mice. In the cartoon, Jack and Mary are driven to a place known as the Kit Kat Club by Rochester. (The cat with swinging doors in his mouth.)

Mel did the voice over for Jack Benny's automobile, "The Maxwell".

When Mel passed away in 1989, how did Warner Brothers pay tribute to him?

With a portrait. It features Bugs, Daffy, Sylvester, Tweety, Porky, Pepe Le Pew, Speedy Gonzales, Yosemite Sam and Foghore Legghorn. They are facing an empty microphone and mic stand which is lit with a single spotlight. Their eyes are closed and their heads are bowed.

The title of the print:

"Speechless". It always makes me teary eyed...

He also starred in a film with Arnold Scwarzenegger, Hercules in New York.

land of the lost? was that a real show?

what about land of the giants?

the time tunnel?

lost in space? "danger, will robinson!"

tv back then was so old so quick and so current and yet old. (please don't ask me to explain that!) like "my favorite martian" and "mr. ed," in retrospect, seem so old, but "our miss brooks" - now THAT was some old shit.

"car 54, where are you?" and who could forget "my mother, the car?" what was up with that? did we actually WATCH that?!

"car 54, where are you?" and who could forget "my mother, the car?" what was up with that? did we actually WATCH that?!


Yeah, Land of the Lost was a real show. I know...my friend went out shopping on purpose to buy the DVD collection of it.

Bibb, if it was on TV we watched, I don't know about you, but with only 3 Local stations around here, I watched everything I possibly could, I wasn't too picky.

I don't want to be un-PC here, but Amos and Andy was in there too...

We had Shock Theater around here, the Friday Night Horror show, sci-fi, you name it ... they used to play Black Sabbath's first big hit as the theme song, what was that song?

Leave it to Beaver, Dennis the Menace was a little late for me, I was grown up then, probably 7 or 8th grade Wink But, I did sneak a peak every now and then, Mr. Wilson would blow a gasket about every other show, if not more often.

What was that gumby show? I thought it was just stupid...

Jonny Quest and Clutch Cargo ...

Couldn't tell you the B. Sabbath song, but our Friday night tv horror show featured A Night on Bald Mountain as it's theme.

Hey, how about everyone's favorite tv show, the Late, Late Movie...?

we were the tv generation - what can you say? remember that hbo series, "dream on," with brian benben? the opening, where he's sitting there as a kid in his (probably roy rogers) cowboy hat right in front of tv? that was our gen. i mean, tv was THE thing. it spawned tv dinners, for crying out loud. and tv trays, on which to place those swanson tv dinners - which we coveted, especially the dessert, which was usually applesauce or a brownie - in the living room in front of the tv. i cannot fathom what it was like sitting around a radio, LISTENING to shows, probably no more than the generation(s) after ours can fathom how, pre-vcr, we were slaves to tv.

i imagine one day we'll talk about commercials (advertising slogans) of that era - no, now, don't everyone jump in at once - but i gotta tell you, i mentioned the "glo-coat heel mark shield" to my doctor last week, and she looked at me completely clueless.

Pittsburgh had a CLASSIC horror show on Saturday nights.

Chiller Theater

From the very early 60s till Saturday Night Live took off it was a double feature and then after SNL became a hit it came on at 1 AM with just one movie.

They got a little crazy with the studio show starting in the 70s but that black ans white 60s show was great. Chilly Billy would walk into the building down a hallway and into the dark studio and sit on a bar stool and tell you about the movies.

Great host and set up and GREAT theme... Al Caiola's version of the Henry Mancini score piece for the film Experiment in Terror. I grew up staying up late on Saturday nights drifting off with that theme coming out of the old one speaker RCA Victor.

Or... later, winter nights alone in my frozen bedroom with a tiny black and white beside the bed... eech... still gives me chills.

I had no idea what that cut was for most of my life and then one time when I was back visiting PA I called the local NBC affiliate where the host of Chiller Theater, Bill Cardille AKA "Chilly Billy" was working as a weather man and got him on the phone and asked him what it was.
