    So I have R&B on while I am wondering around the forum and am half paying attention to a fractured fairy Tale. The guy is trying to marry a rich pig and is trying to impress her by playing the piano while reading a book titled, "Gay Boy Annual".
    Wow that was a whopper I never caught when I was a kid!

    In some ways they were like the Simpsons , in that they were way deeper than the typical kids cartoon of the era. I will catch them occasionally now and am amazed at the stuff I missed watching as a kid.

    How far would you get today depicting a character like Boris Badenoff (sp?) kind of half communist half nazi rolled into one character that was a quintessential stereotype villan of the 50's?

    I love Moose & Squirrel! Where are you seeing them?
    Boris's character is based in Akim Tamiroff (1899-1972), a Russian born actor that we probably most remember from Touch of Evil (1958).

    Yes .......... throw in looney toons which were earlier but in heavy rotation

    The WB cartoons were the best, but at the time Moose and Squirrel were out in the late 50's, we weren't yet getting Bugs, Daffy, etc. They got a show in '61 and from then on their exposure increased.

    I ment Huckleberry Hound, Yogi Bear, and a few more that started getting produced specifically for TV kids shows.

    I keep my fingers crossed that one day soon R and B will have their own DVD boxed sets!
    I love those shows!
