Well folks, it's happened again...
Today, 'ole' G-Man was slapped with the harsh reality of how old he really is!!
Today I made a comment on a fellow blogger's post, about a well known TV character named Froggy Gremlin. As I didn't realize, I was probably the only one in the world still alive that actually remembers the little fellow, AND what show he came from...
The Buster Brown Show....!!!!
It was hosted by a jovial actor named Andy Devine, And I even remember the theme song..
'Here's Buster Brown,
He lives in a shoe,
Here's his dog Tige.
He lives in there too'....
The cast of characters included, Midnight the Cat, Squeeky the Mouse, and the fan favorite, Froggy Gremlin!!!! Andy would say..."Plunk your magic twanger Froggy"...Then Froggy would come out to a riotous applause and say.."Hiya Kids, Hiya, Hiya, Hiya"....
Remember the kid in the later Little Rascal episodes...Froggy..?
Well, he sounded just like Froggy Gremlin...
I swear that was one of THE most often repeated phrases of the 50's...
1..I Like Ike!!!
2..Are you now, or ever have been, a member of the Communist Party..?
3..Kookie, Kookie, Lend me your comb..
4..Plunk your magic twanger Froggy..!!!
Now please refrain from any lewd comments, this is a family blog...hehehehe
