Juvenile & humorous

I know, I know. Another ’80s cartoon based on a greeting card and toy franchise. Just give this one a chance. If you’re not won over after seeing the Purple Pieman and hearing the theme song by Flo & Eddie (lyrics by a former writer for Jack Benny and Studio One), I guess you can turn it off. We can’t agree on everything.

Won’t go nowhere

I might prefer gliders to rocking chairs, but rocking chairs get all the good songs and stories.

All the stars just marshmallows in a mug of cocoa

I wish I could replace all the Paul Anka songs in this cartoon with tunes written by pretty much any other Canadian musician. Other than that, this is a decent way to spend 23 minutes the Saturday before Christmas.

Royal dreading

I know you have a pretty good head on your shoulders, Princess, and you might have already noticed this but I thought I should tell you just in case you didn’t. According to the credits, the prince is really Lord Garp. Do with that as you will.

Won’t wake up, won’t eat his cereal

As someone who spent some time in bed sick this week, I can attest that sleeping too much can give you some very strange dreams. Wake up, gosling.

Slay your own dragon

I don’t think the king in this cartoon is going to win a Father Of The Year Award any time soon. Keep on doing what you’re doing, Bedelia. You’ll be fine.

Slim Waller just doesn’t sound right

I recently started taking a tap dance class, and so far I’m pretty bad at it. Some friends have asked if they can come observe a session, but it’s a small studio so I don’t think that’s going to happen. Fortunately for these friends, I found a cartoon that does a fairly good job of showing what goes on with me in a tap dance class.

Scout’s honor

I seem to have giant fowl legs on the brain this week, but consciously I chose to share this cartoon because it has a good message. That message is: Be prepared and carry a hacksaw, roll of duct tape, remote-control mouse, bagel, spool of wire, 6-volt lantern battery, apple and fire extinguisher in your satchel at all times, just in case you encounter a witch, a hypnocat, Kaschei the Deathless and a three-headed dragon after you’ve been abducted in the middle of your model-car making by a flock of geese. Remember it well.

The winning word for this year’s Scripps Spelling Bee was “Stromuhr.” A stromuhr is an instrument that measures the amount of blood that flows through a blood vessel during a certain period of time. I guess a stromuhr could be handy if you were trying to find out the dangerousness of a particular vampire bat.
