My Heroes Have Always Been Cartoon Characters

"Me behave? Seriously? As a child I saw Tarzan almost naked, Cinderella arrived home after midnight, Pinocchio told lies, Aladdin was a thief, Batman drove over 200 miles an hour, Snow White lived in a house with 7 men, Popeye smoked a pipe and had tattoos, Pac Man ran around to digital music while eating pills that enhanced his performance, and Shaggy and Scooby were mystery solving hippies that always had the munchies. The fault is not mine! If you had this childhood and loved it, repost." ~ Unknown

I would love to attribute this to someone. It was floating around Facebook the other day and I copied it over to share. Because some things should be immortalized and this is one of them.

If you are the author, or know the author, please let us know so that we can send you accolades. I commend you for authoring such deep and funny stuff, and with your permission, I would like to adopt it as my new motto.

And, let us not forget the cigarette-smoking, cocktail drinking cool cat, the Pink Panther.

Here he is (in a movie intro) foiling the Man and charming the ladies. And here he is in rare form, relaxing on a Sunday afternoon:

Funny post. It explains a lot about my own behavior problems.

When I was in college I tried to get home by 4:30 every day to watch the Popeye and Gumby cartoons hosted by the adorable local Knoxville celebrity the mini-skirted Minnie the Mermaid (I really had the hots for her). The old pre-color Popeye cartoons were the best and Gumby was such a trip.

Hi Yvonne, how in the world are you. I must pop over and see you tonight!

Bob, doesn't it though! Thanks for stopping by.

Arlee, I miss those old cartoons!

And, yes, Walter, there was Wally Gator, forever walking out that front gate! How in the world are you, my man??

Hahaha so true. One would think we'd be psychologically scarred. ;-)
