bolt of nostalgia

I just remembered watching Captain Kangaroo when I was a kid still living in Kentucky. He featured a Tom Teriffic cartoon every day.

Nostalgia questions:

1) What did Tom Teriffic wear for a "Thinking Cap?"

2) What was the name of Tom's dog?

3) Who was the villian in the cartoons?

I KNOW the answers. That's how freaking old I am.


Now, Jane, honey, bless your heart, this is trivia.

...'cause I can't answer the questions.

1) a funnel
2) Mighty Manfred the Wonder Dog
3) Crabby Appleton ("He's rotten to the core")

Do you remember the name of the crazy scientist?

Hah! Captain Kangaroo only came along because
Smiling Ed McConnell retired, and Andy Devine
couldn't handle a kids' show.
If you're so old, tell me what Froggie The
Gremlin plunked, every show.

magic twanger - but did anyone ever know what the hell that was?

I'm so bad I remember Mighty Manfred's theme song: I'm Mighty Manfred UH! the Wonder Dog! Crabby Appleton. Dadgum. I think I was on some kinda training toilet watching this stuff.

Kat, I am impressed!

Now, who can sing the "Mighty Mouse" theme song?

I'll give you a hint if you want one...

Oh... the crazy scientist... was that Professor Beaker?

Mr. trouble never hangs around,
when he hears this Mighty sound,
Here I come to save the day!
That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way!

Yes sir, when there is a wrong to right,
Mighty Mouse will join the fight!
On the sea or on the land,
He's got the situation well in hand

I can still see Andy Kauffman singing it...

The scientist on Tom Terrific was Isotope Feeney (Mr. Rogers mailman keeps him ever-present in my mind)

I think I either exposed my age or occupation

Damn you. I could remember the funnel-shaped hat, and Manfred. For the life of me, I couldn't remember Crabby Appleton. It was so close, but it was just beyond the fog barrier in my brain.

Man. It's been a long long time since Captain Kangaroo. Mr. Moose was awesome.

Bunny Rabbit. Grandfather Clock. Mr. Greenjeans.

Damn, but I miss being young.

Kat, I repeat. YOU ARE GOOD!

Posted by: Acidman on May 22, 2003 08:54 PM

Kat, Acidman has underestimated you! You are FANTASTIC.

Y'all forgot all those ping pong balls.
