My Childhood on Replay

You gotta love a website that will offer you the chance to play the whole theme songs from Mr. Ed, Magilla Gorilla and Mighty Mouse. Or at least, I do.

WavThis-TV & Cartoon Theme's

Madeleine, I found your blog. You said something complimentary about my raising of Adam, but I would give anything to have raised Sarcasm Girl.

As to Mighty Mouse:

'Here I come to save the day!
That means that Mighty Mouse
Is on the way!'

Remind me to eventually burn you a copy of the Mr. Ed album--probably before you see the current tv series.

That may cure your nostalgia.

Ack! Ken, please, no, don't do it! (to be read in the style of a woman facing mayhem in a B noir movie from 1947).

I remember Mr. Ed well enough that I have no particular need to see it, or its remake (Good God, why?). But every now and then "A horse is a horse, of course, of course" runs through my mind, willy-nilly...

I really wish they'd had the theme music to Tom Terrific on that site. I had such a crush on Tom and his sidekick, Mighty Manfred.

Oh my God. A remake of Mr. Ed.

What's next, a remake of My Mother the Car?

I had forgotten, until I stumbled over it while channel hopping the other night, that there had actually been a big screen version of CAR 54, WHERE ARE YOU (another show of which my predominant memory is the theme song). With David Johanson, I think. (shudder). And today, taking the kids to see A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS, I saw a trailer for BEWITCHED, with Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell. To say that I see no particular purpose in exhuming any of these works is an understatement. It appears, however, that I am not in the majority on this one...

I think the right phrase is "Why? for love of all the gods why?!?"
