While hiking in the Rockies, the gecko runs into 'moose and squirrel'.

I saw that.

It struck me as odd to think that a cartoon that ran for, like, 4 years sixty years ago still holds some cultural currency.

I mean, it’s still a big thing here in Frostbite Falls, but I thought the rest of you would go “huh?”

My daughter, just turned 29, was brought up watching VCR tapes of Rocky and Bullwinkle, so it has been passed down to at least one more generation.
Loved Fractured Fairy tales, too.

That show had MASSIVE syndication. They ran it on STL TV for a couple of decades, NIckelodeon, etc.. To the point that my wife and I used the term "Rocky and Bullwinkle Show " to refer to over the top flashing light sequences in Christmas decorations.

I loved the original R&B, but not the reboot, nor the movies.

Fractured Fairy Tales and Peabody's Improbably History were also great.

And I was always a fan of Hans Conried.

That's a show I miss, not the reboot.

Next week, a bunch of outspoken 4th graders from a midwest mountain town, a stoned towel, and their talking poo.
