I meant to add that this relates to the Rocky and Bullwinkle spoof on Corfid where Bullwinkle sings Gordon Lightfoot songs on his "ukelooloo", and where narrator William Conrad announces that "we're all doomed". Those were very funny cartoons and you ust don't see stuff like that anymore...

Aw man.

I watched Rocky & Bullwinkle in local reruns in the 1970s and then NBC picked it up in the early 80s for saturday morning. Which was the last time I ever saw it.

I even went and saw the 2000 "Rocky & Bullwinkle" movie,they day it was released.


I always did like the attempted poetry reading of Bullwinkle in "Bullwinkle's Corner" ,which like most things Bullwinkle attempted,never quite went right.

To the creator of this cartoon,I leave the obvious salute :

"Hey Rocky"! :"Watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat! "

"Again?!"

"Nothing up my sleeve...PRESTO!"

"RAAAAAAAAAWWWRRRRR!!!"

"No doubt about it,I gotta get another hat!"

"Now here's something we hope you'll really like!"

( We really did like it. ) RIP.
