end of summer means new cartoons!

Summer's over, kids. "Oh crap," you say? "The fun's over," you cry?

Yes, the summer sun may be setting a lot sooner these days, and the girls are wearing a lot more, as well. And, yes, school is beginning... But! Let's not forget that it's time for the new Fall Saturday Morning line-up!!

Forget Shazam and the traveling Winebago, I only endured that half cartoon half live action bit to get to the Isis segment of the show. Man, what a doll!

And of course there was Kukla, Fran and Ollie. That was my guilty pleasure through the 70s. Even when I was too old for puppet shows, I still tuned in to KF&O for the off chance to see "Skinny and Fatty" one more time.

Don't ask me why, but I was a big Hudson Brothers fan. Actually, I probably got to enjoy the Bros. from all of their variety show exposure, so when the Razzle Dazzle Hour came to Saturday morning TV, I was well initiated. But what really hooked me was Rod Hull and his sadistically aggressive Emu puppet.

Anyone who namechecks "Skinny and Fatty" as a Saturday morning childhood memory is more than okay in my book!

Mr. Rab,

Many a Saturday morn was whiled away watching the story of the skinny Asian boy in the hiked up shorts befriend a lonely, picked-on widebody. That trio of Kukla, Fran and Ollie sure knew how to touch a kid's heart.
