Mommy went out to the garden today to do some work and she was standing there with her coreopsis, she took her finger and put it at the bottom of the flower head, flicked it really far and said "my momma had a baby and her head popped off"! WHAT?! What kind of vicious thing is that? I looked at Finney, he looked back at me and said "whoa, that was cruel! Glad she never did that to us".
Who in the world ever thought up a horrible saying like that? We asked momma that, in the form of our native tongue, when she walked in the door. She somehow understood us and said she didn't know but it was something she learned as a kid. She said nursery rhymes were actually pretty gruesome. Like from the Brothers Grimm.
So here is a question for you all. What Saturday morning cartoons did you used to watch as a kid? Name 5 of them. Bet you won't even remember some of these:
The Jackson 5 cartoon (surprise surprise)
Scooby Doo (NOT scrappy doo, blech)
Goober & the Ghost Chasers
The Groovy Ghoulies
and of course Looney Tunes (the road runner and Wiley Coyote were her fav)
She says sometimes she feels like this:
POOR MOMMA! Okay, your turn! Name 5 of your favs. OH and I forgot to mention; POOP POOP POOP POOOOOOOOOOOOOPPPPPPPPPPPPPP! I want a DDP too! MOL.
Quick Draw McGraw
oh this is fun
The Pink Panther
Batman and Robin
Gasper the friendly ghost
Sylvester and Twitty ( is that the name of that one?)
Oh there are so many more we member and yes of course we know most of the ones that you and Tigger already named. MOL now days mom hardly ever watches TV but she must have really liked it as a child.
Tom and Jerry!
Woody the woodpecker
Our family always loved watching Pingu too
daddy used to watch these...Bet most of these you've forgotten:
Wacky Racers ( MUTTLEY!!!! Drat and double drat!!)
Josie and the Pussycats
Ohs. Mees forgot!!!
PPPPPPPPPPPPPOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOPPPPPPPPPP!!!
Mom's favorites were/are:
And she liked those cartoons (she thinks they were called "SchoolHouse Rock) that taught about history and punctuation. There was one "I'm Only A Bill on Capitol Hill" and another "Libby, Libby, Libby get your adverbs here"
Skylar, don't forget "Conjunction Junction, what's your function!!"
oh my goodness this turned into a fun game!!! Yes, we remember ALL of those and guess what everyone! If you get the Cartoon Network Boomerang channel, just about all of those cartoons are still on there including Wacky Races (drat and double drat), we watch that late at night Blizzard! Love that one. The only one I don't recognize on the list from you guys is the Pingu from Blade. Never heard of that one.
If you're ever up late at night they switch them around from month to month. Lately they have on Penelope Pitstop and the Anthill Mob and then Hong Kong Phooey! They also sometimes have Wonder Wheels, Jabberjaw, and some of the ones from the Banana Splits show.
See? This is a very fun diary and we said PPPPOOOOOOOOPPPPPP a lot. Where's my DDP Catster? MOL! I think Catster has a crush on Finney.
Here's one, Lacey!!! The Hair Bear Bunch!!! MOL!!!

In the afternoons, the school bus would drop mom off at her grandparents house. Grandma would be watching GH and Phil Donahue and then it was grandpas turn. He was a cartoon head! So Grandpa and Granddaughter would be watching cartoons every afternoon together.

Clutch Cargo? I don't think I've ever heard of that one Tabbies! Oh we forgot about Inspector Gadget, liked that one too. I don't think mom watched Shirt Tales but that looks really cute! Thanks Zach.
Wow! This is a great trip down memory lane. Mom is having so much fun. Here are a few more!

I renamed my diary to try and get more kitties to come and play this game.
Some more are the Adams Family cartoon! Top cat, Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels, the Funky Phantom.
Yous need a DDP for all dis POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP wees bees saying!!! Daddy don't really know ifn he gotrs boomrang or not, kicked Comcast out this week and just got his dish hooked up!!
MOL, we're saying POOP enough for crying out loud what's the deal diary gal!??? Did I do something to offend you? Come onnnnn!!! She should come and play this game, then she'd be happy.
Did you get Direct TV? Cause that's what we have. Comcast raises their prices to crazy amounts so we got rid of them over 2 years ago. We love our channels on Direct TV!!!
We have Dish Network. We weren't getting good reception with Direct TV.
Oh Diary Gal...poooooooop!
That was me above :D
Nope, Lacey, wees got Dish network. Better reception, better prices.
Complete opposite up here guys. Dish Network is terrible here in NH and everyone has changed to Direct TV. Blizz and Tigger I don't know if you get Boomerang channel with Dish Network. You'll have to look for it. I hope you do! Some fun cartoons.
Yes you can, but only on the top 250! We only have the top 150!!
Oh you mean you only have the basic plan?
He has 150+. Gets most of de goodies, no HBO, etc! Bout the only biggie we don't get bees Speed, TCM, Hallmark, and Animal planet!! Not bad for 35 a month!!!
Those are some of the best channels though! We love TCM big time! Hallmark another good one and of course Animal Planet. Sorry Blizz!
Daddy said it's all good!! Gets his games, syfy, disc, hist (He loves Pawn stars and storage wars!!)
Of course, such a guy! MOL.
HUH??? Whazzat supposed to mean??? Finney, little help here!!!
It means they don't watch Pawn Stars and Storage Wars Blizz. Not interested in that stuff in particular. There's a new show on Scifi that's on right after Ghost Hunter's International called Legend Quest that mom is now into. They go after fabled relics like the Arc of the Covenant and stuff like that.
(this poop thing isn't working anymore!!)
Pawn stars is very educational!!! Legend quest comes on too late for daddy!!!
Legend Quest sound s very entertaining. When does it come on?
Love my Ghost Hunters!
Okay Blizz, if you say so! Zoe it comes on right after GHI! Last week was the season premiere of GHI and the first episode ever of the Legend Quest. We love GHI but we're wondering what happened to Rob? And where's Dustin? What the heck is Chris doing there permanently now? Mom can't stand her.
What are your pawrents' favorite channels? Mom's favorite channels are HGTV and BBC America. Dad's are BBC America and the Food Network. Their favorite shows are House Hunters, Dr. Who, Fringe and Iron Chef!
Hmmm, well I only have a mommy but she likes HGTV sometimes just not as much as she used to. She does like the DIY network. BBC is great she loves the Graham Norton Show, SOOOO funny! She used to love Torchwood but now it's moved to Showtime which she is NOT happy about. She does love Fringe and shows like it.
I guess mom doesn't have a particular station she loves but all kinds of different shows. Reality shows are not so much her thing though but some of them she watches if they look interesting.
Oops, I should have said pawrent or pawrents. :) Dad loves the Graham Norton Show! Torchwood moved to the Starz channel here. The satellite company made Starz free for a six month period, then it will be a paid channel. :(
You know the British CSI is kinda cool. With the funny looking cars and police uniforms.
MOL, that's okay Tigger. That's it!! They moved to Starz. Mommy was sooooo mad! She LOVES Torchwood. Although when they had those miniseries last time instead of the whole season, jeez they killed everyone off practically! Only 2 originals left! Mom has a crush on Captain Jack Harkness.
OOOOHHHH mommy just googled it and she can watch the full episodes online on Starz! Although it's a pain to watch it on the computer but still!!!
Mom loves British tv! Tigger did you guys ever Watch the segment of Graham Norton where he has people sit in the red chair and he pulls a lever and they fall backwards with their feet straight up in the air? MOL MOL MOL! Mommy laughs so hard.
My dad and Mom love British t.v. too! Yes, they have seen the red chair segment on Graham Norton! MOL MOL
I'm so glad your mom can watch the full episodes on the computer. Dad's laptop can handle that too, but Mom's can't. She wants to watch streaming video from Netflix but can't, or she would have to borrow Dad's laptop. :'( sniff
Did you see that Netflix now is charging people like $16 for the actual DVDs when they were JUST $9? People are MMMMAAAAADDD! Mom still likes DVDs! They change things too fast.
Yes, Netflix wants $7.99 for DVD rental and $7.99 for Streaming Video; the total price went up $6.00 a month! :( However, Mom and Dad figure that it's still better than renting through Redbox for a dollar a day, since they can mail their DVD back to Netflix basically when they want, and not have to return it the next day to the store lobby. Plus, Dad really likes the streaming video.
That's not what I saw on TV Tigger. I saw the DVD rental went up to $16 a month!
Mom and Dad have the one DVD out at a time and unlimited streaming video plan. Mom double checked just to make sure and the plan will be $15.98 a month. If you get the two DVDs, three DVDs or four DVDs out at a time and unlimited streaming video plan, it's more expensive for each tier. :)
