Ooty ooty ooty

I’m a little confused about the concept here. If the person is transported to the time where his behavior is most appropriate, wouldn’t they be accepted happily there? Maybe a thing got lost in translation.

Also, I wonder what time I would end up in. Hopefully not a time with a lot of ooty ootiers.

Art is not eternal

Midway through this, I thought, “Hey, I could hire these guys to make me a Flintstone house for way cheaper than $3.2 million*,” but then I watched the rest of the film. Oh well.

Comin’ down fast

I guess I’m a couple of weeks late with this cartoon, but it wasn’t this hot a couple of weeks ago. Maybe it was. I can’t remember. My brain has melted.

B-A-N-A-N-A-S

I don’t know. I think I might have stayed on the island.

Well, well, well

Water in a stop-motion film is one of the best things ever. A dancing bread squirrel isn’t too bad either.

Part 2 (since this is originally a Grimm tale, I’m wondering if the mud is standing in for something worse):

Huey, Dewey, ptooey

Yesterday was Donald Duck’s 83rd birthday  and I didn’t hear a thing about it. Sorry, Donald. Let me rectify that by posting your debut cartoon. Of special interest to viewers may be the depiction of duck toes and also the curious phenomenon of baby chicks wearing shoes.

Tic tac row

Tic tac toe starts the trouble, tic tac toe ends the trouble. Oops – spoiler alert.

Mama don’t allow no political allegories in here

I’ve been trying to find more information about the nursery rhyme “There Was An Old Woman Who Lived In A Shoe.” Apparently it’s not just a cute poem about a mother who starves and whips her children. It might be about King George II, it might be about George’s wife Caroline, it might be about the US when it was still a British colony.

I like this cartoon version where she feeds them and doesn’t beat them, and all she does when it gets to be a bit too much is drink some cider. It doesn’t make much historical sense, and yes, she’s probably going to become an alcoholic if this is her only coping mechanism, but it’s nice to see that those kids aren’t being hindered in their desire to throw down a stomping beat.

Orange Blossom Express

Things I’ve learned this morning:

  • Berry-eating can actually be a really menacing activity
  • Hymenopterists get really mad when you say honey is bee vomit
  • Also, people are arguing about who has the rights to use the name Bee Vomit Honey for their honey products
  • “Honey” and “vomit” are two words that start looking really weird the more you look at them
