Then as a grown up when I discovered there was a composer named Boris Gudenov, I thought it was twice as funny.

Well played, Jay Ward, well played.

The fractured fairy tales and Peabody's adventures were the best part of that show.

66. And William Conrad ("Cannon" from the detective show)

was the narrator of the Rocky and Bullwinkle adventures.

Jay Ward et al really admired the voice actors from the 30s and 40s. Highlighted Charlie Ruggles (Aesop), Walter Tetley (Sherman), and Edward Everett Horton (Fractured Fairy Tales).

with a petition to make Frostbite Falls the 51st state.

Eventually made it to Washington DC.

However, they had the bad timing of doing this during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Woops.

100. Ideas are serious business.

Thank you for sharing that mac56. It brought tears to my third eye. In fact, I flashed back to M.I.T.* for a minute.

Why would Krushchev's handlers -- or any authoritarian -- fear a cartoon? The creators of Rocky and Bullwinkle made their budget conscious animation into something to think about. Once their universe was in my head and heart, nothing could drive them out. Not even Upsidasium.



On every level, I think the world of Moose and Squirrel.

78. My favorite tv cartoon always. And went to the Emporium back when it was open in L.A.

 

and met Jay and his wife.(before Jay died and then it closed.)

more recent picture with current business now housed there
but the statue continues (though the owners of the Pet boarding / grooming don't really like Bullwinkle fans making noise coming through their gate to visit the statue

83. The most suggestive they ever got on that show

Rocky and Bullwinkle were set to play a football game for Wossamotta U. But through some machinations of fate, it turned out they were to play an all-female team.

Rocky: "Bullwinkle, this is terrible!"
Bullwinkle: "It is?"
Rocky: "What kind of game can you play with girls?"
Bullwinkle: (addressing the audience) "Boy, this really is a children's show, isn't it?" (pause) "Parcheesi, of course!"

90. So, with all these fallow fans ;)

Maybe someone remembers or heard a mashup title done back in either the 1990s or earlier. It was in the same vein as Alpha Team's "Speed Racer" mashup, but I can't remember either the artist that did the cut or the title. And searching on "Hey Rocky! Watch me pull a rabbit out of a hat" doesn't result in hits for this musically-mad title

So, anyone know what I'm talking about?

96. "~~It's like a beautiful dream, Rock!~~"

Yes, that's the one! Thanks!

And if I was a Gordon Lightfoot fan, I'm not sure I'd be amused with the other one

101. Good Rocky and Bullwinkle read.............

They 'punked' more than just the 'goberment'. Even the sponsers were fair game.

Mr. Ward's renegades did lose a round with ''The Great Box-Top Caper,'' in which Boris plotted to destroy the world's economy by counterfeiting cereal-box tops. General Mills, the ''Bullwinkle'' sponsor, thought this hit too close to home. The episodes were cut back.
