That was back further, after WW II - no tv - people had to do something.

Maybe this one's more your speed.

Missy will send you there. And she'll turn up as one of the inmates in the bargain.

Very badly. You now have to watch Night Nurse and Ladies They Talk About. :D

Oh yes, love Fleicher's cartoons, especially the adorable Betty Boop!

 

I never saw the Raggedy Ann and Andy cartoons, darn. I did have them as dolls, though, they were so cute. I wish I still had them as they were hand made, down to their little outfits. I can't remember where my mom got them, but she may have even made them herself. She was a genius at making handmade, cloth dolls and animals. I feel sad all of a sudden that I did not save any of them. How awful! :(

 

I really liked this one, too, which TCM airs from time to time:

Brave Little Toaster reminded me - I love those "little" Disney cartoons.... the ones that are shortened little movies. Although I think they made a Brave little toaster TV show too... maybe you meant that, and I misunderstood.

"Speaking of puppets, one of the funniest episodes of "The Dick Van Dyke Show" was about a malicious puppet called "Jellybean": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3B04vrnT69M -

< MissGoddess >

 

 

Great Mother of Mercy!!! I don't remember that Dick Van Dyke episode, but that is the 2nd scariest puppet I've ever encountered. JellyBean was truly frightening looking. And It had it's own children's show?

 

Would you please post a screencap of JellyBean for me?

Jellybean scared me silly when I was a kid and seeing him again as an adult, running amok and cloning himself...oh wait! I mean on the show. Yes! Terrifying. I'll post caps tonight.
