Prehistoric Irish Cynic
- Sep 28, 2007
Loved the squirrel and the moose. Also Boris and Natasha, they of the thinly disguised Russian provenance. I seem to recall that Dudley Do-Right was featured as well. My favorite episode was the time a robot was made to look like him, but could only say"Hello Nell!" repeatedly.I remember that when the Flintstones was announced it sounded intriguing , when it appeared with its juvenile broad humor I was sore disappointed.
However , in 1960, I discovered The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends and that was a godsend!
I loved the puns and off the wall humor.
I thought the best part of those show was Fractured Fairy Tales narrated by Edward Everett Horton. These were really Monty Python-ish , I loved how they took some of the weird fairy tales were taken to logical conclusions in contra-balance to their wacko old-European content.
"Why do frogs have no tales .
Because they croak every night."
