Tonight the Wayback Machine is set to Jay Ward‘s Peabody and Sherman. This episode of Peabody’s Improbable History is the story of how Peabody got his pet boy, Sherman.
What’s on your mind tonight?
reverse three-and-a-half somersaults, tuck position, no splash (’natch)
g’evening pups – how is everyone doing tonight?
Oh Peabody and Sherman, my favorite ….
Oy, thanks for the memories, Mr. Peabody.
me too – i loved the wayback machine… and the snark – they had so many puns :)
the wayback machine – the way it should be instead of the way it was
I remember this one! “The ‘woof’ of Wallstreet!”
i think this is the first p&s – from 1959 since it explains the wayback and how peabody got his boy
you can use the wayback machine to see a lot of things…… like when there were real republicans and not these idiots from the plantation caucus….. or when their was a fair progressive tax system (before raygun) …..
i never thought the pre-raygun days would be considered the good ole days
Ah! The Dive. Thanks, Suzanne! Great to see that lovely form again.
shit, i forgot to turn off the two way monitor
Jetsons. Still the best.
newton – i remember when the jetsons and the flintstones were on in the evening – and my dad loved them as much as us kids did. we used to try to figure out how batman and robin would get out their cliff-hanger ending.
life was so much simpler then. even with the viet nam war on the evening news every nite and war protestors and hippies and the counter-coulture revolution.
Katy…you are so way back…I think I know a dog that may want you. G)
And less than 10 channels.
I used to be able to sleep.
It was so complicated. 1968 to 1972, and my graduation from Univ. Delaware in 1974. My parents, totally left leaning, put up with four radical children who had freedom of speech at home. We could say whatever we felt.
cartoons as prime time shows, the whole family watched the Fintstones…..
heading off to bed…… back to halls cough drops…… blue ice with blue tongue…. yuck…..
This here is your Late Late Night Drive by Digg Pups!
Now ya’ll be good to each other!!
hey bb – thanks for posting siun’s response and the update last nite
thanks, dood hi and g’nite
Miss Dog might have something to say about another dog…… she has been playing nurse dog watching me closely……. Thursday evening I fell asleep on the sofa (not something I usually do) and woke up with dog nose in my face……..
Okay, what’s on my mind. The band Flogging Molly doing the song Float. Actually it’s on my stereo….! and I can’t link..?.
The upside of having mohawk youngbloods around is hearing bands like this. Apparently, the best concert band ever for sheer fun, with the most polite mosh pit, despite bruises.
I love this song!
my dad was career navy – retired after 20 and ended up as a butcher for the army at the commissary at the presidio in san francisco. we used to watch the protests in berkeley on tv, hoping that my mom’s sister wasn’t on tv again because that always upset the dinner table conversation.
compared to now, life seems so innocent back then
going to sleep late….. just saw the lineup for the taking heads……. it is pretty much wall to wall repugs…… except for Faux…… go figure……
I still think the luckiest turn in my life was Pinko-Commie-Libs as parents.
Well educated, professional Democrats.
I amm a collaborator…not an authoritarian. And welcome you are. Who knows the FFL may help get universal health care. Hope Hope Hope Cbange Change Change.
Doin ok tonight?
hey openhope – how’s your sleep?
not so much of a nervous nellie feeling off balance. got some alone time today – baby girl is spending the weekend with her sister near portland.
and i’ve cut way back on watching the lost dvd’s. too intense for too long and it was making me tweak.
float is a cool song – thanks openhope and newton
My brother, the eldest Ennis child, left college and joined the Navy. My Dad, a tail gunner in WWII awarded with the Silver Star, approved. We other three kids, just watched Laugh In and coped. I went to college in 1970 and was swept up by the Peace Movement in 1971. I was still innocent. Funny how television never factored much for me for a few decades after then.
i remember my dad watching laughin just to see goldie hawn (and her bikini)
thinking back, he wasn’t such an old fuddy duddy as i thought.
Look at thr radar;;;We are the Wet Coast tonight. A whopper laying off shore will be snow when it hirs the mountains…lotsa water maybe some flood.
I delivered 400 homes a flyer today as part of oue sustainable sewer campaign. The eternal Los Osos Sewer War.
epu’d in the last thread, but i like zand’s elderberry zinc lozenges A LOT.
Yes for me as well. Lovely to speak to both my old living parents on election night 2009. Yea!
yikes – we got some too but not like that
Sleep well katymine.
hey suzanne and all the pups. i’d never seen peabody and sherman before. i’m charmed by it. how’re you doing?
saving the lozenge rec for katymine
you never watched bullwinkle and rocky? besides b&r, boris and natasha, they had peabody and fractured fairy tales.
I am a Pisces love water, live by it…rain is great to sleep sounds Activism really pushes my limits…it is like a job without a time clock.
Hi Suz and greenwarrior and everyone,
Love Peabody and Sherman.
hey sunny – how’s your part of the world tonight?
hey margot – still snowy?
Suz–just snowed a bit in the last couple of hours.
I knew it was going to be a snowy winter, my son told me the Farmer’s Almanac predicted it.
Yeah…how about it…more, more , more Peabody and Sherman? Definitely fun.
never watched. for many years i was out of the country, but i’ve never really watched tv. i have one my friend says isn’t a real tv. she calls it a guppie. and i have no cable so it’s only good for watching dvd’s.
The sandman is calling me…enjoy.
So you have never actually seen O’Reilly…
You may be on to something.
hi suz, hi newt, hi all. just came by to say hi and gnite.
My sister went to viet nam with the red cross, straight out of college. A tradition in our family starting in WW2 – the women in our family did that.
Interesting red cross involvement in Iraq was a non-issue as was USO.
hi and g’nite spurious
dang – one of my first memories is watching crusader rabbit before my bedtime and trying to stay awake until it ended.
i watched a marathon of Flip Wilson shows one weekend. A neighbor came over to find out if I was all right, she heard me laughing so hard I cried…
don’t make me get killer
Suz, it’s good. Not warm, but hope of spring in the air.
what? all the news of our country’s meltdown and roubini and krugman ignored and us continuing to kill innocents in iraq and pakistan and afghanistan and send white phosphorous to israel for use against the gazans isn’t enough? i should also watch sh*t-comes-out-of-his-mouth?
full disclosure – i did see the whole segment with him and jon stewart
i can see bulbs starting to sprout and there are ladybugs around. spring has to be close.
alas, i don’t know what crusader rabbit is.
Digg won’t let me Digg!
It says my acccount is invalid.
It says for help go to support.digg
My browser cannot find support.digg
anyone know what’s up with that?
Then get thee to a TV tomorrow morning (or the This Week website), cause Krugman & Roubini play “Kick the crap out of the tweaky liar, creep and toadie” with George Will.
Thanks for that…got me smiling on a day when I was mostly frowning!
it was an earlier jay ward cartoon
my pleasure applepie – saturday nite cartoons at the lake are a great way to end the week for me
dang, neuro – have you cleared your cache?
do they stream it live from the website?
Please tell me again how to do that, Suz…
it does the same thing to me when I try to Digg from another Web site…
ie or firefox?
Not live to my knowledge. But if you go here an hour or two after live air on the East coast, you can watch all of it.
I’m finding you can sleep pretty darn good when you’re clearing land. Spent the last 3 days clearing brush and getting ready to plan a large vegetable garden. I’ve had a slash fire going all day and it’s an awesome way to start the new season. Probably politically/environmentally uncool these days. But we’re rural. I love that purge in spring.
Spring can’t come soon enough. We need it this year.
nothing like hard physical labor to help ya sleep at night openhope :) glad it is helping
what veggies you gonna plant?
I’m on IE right now. I also have Firefox, don’t know if the same problem occurs there. What do I do on IE?
Hey, thanks newtonuser. Music is the universal language.!!
ie7 – go to tools in the right hand side of the toolbar, click on internet options, and delete your browsing history
Really. It works.
newton!! I’m literally laughing out loud.
i’m thrilled i can get to see roubini and krugman. thanks a bunch.
Sunday mornings are fun again.
I’m not sure how much they (Krugman & Roubini) will agree on. But being possessed of the facts, and a willingness to express them, Will’s false history doesn’t stand a chance.
this one’s up way past bedtime. i came in late from a birthday party for a friend. including good food, dancing to 50’s music, kids with party hats, horns, etc. zooming around the house, the birthday “girl” with a tiara and a halo of flowers streaming ribbons in her hair. i’m about off to bed.
Digg tells me my account is invalid whether I am on IE or Firefox (after clearing cache on both) or on Safari.
I sent Digg an e-mail asking them what’s up. Could I be in trouble with them? I don’t know what for, unless they don’t like me posting all those Digg comments that tell people to leave a Digg comment to double their impact.
I’ll wait and see if they respond to my e-mail.
Well, we have a lack of sunlight from Sept on until spring, then we get a burst.. So, I’m planting lots of potatoes,cabbage,peas,spinach,lettuce. The early veg. But we’re going to try a new idea among some of us gardeners and those who grow great carrots,etc, will grow lots. I can’t grow them. But I’m great on beans,herbs and other things. We’ll swap. That way the micro-climate of the gardens can dictate best use.
I’m also reclaiming a basically abandoned orchard. Very cool. Pears, peaches,apples. I’m putting in raspberry beds this week.
oh, i forgot to say i wore my pink boa (among other items of clothing).
that parenthetical part makes a difference…
hippo birdies 2 ewes
hippo birdies 2 ewes
hippo birdies deer greenwarrior
hippo birdies 2 ewes
… and mini s’mores
love the boa and tiara – i gotta try that
i hope this year will be my first year with a veggie garden. i’ve not ever done one.
my landlord has a cleared plot of land between me and the art studio that she uses for veggies and others – said i am welcome to plant what i want. i have no idea what grows up here, how to do it, or when. but, i think this year will be the year i learn.
twas the friend’s birthday and she wore the tiara. i do have one – one of the items i took when my mom passed away. it’s red. but i didn’t wear it – didn’t want to upstage the birthday girl. not that i could ever upstage her. she’s somewhat larger than life in her persona.
whoops – i mis-read your comment. can i change the stanza to hippo birdies 2 gw’s friend?
try sugar snap peas. you’ll need some kind of trellising. you can do that with some kind of framing and string. but they grow there and are absolutely deilicious straight out of the garden. string beans are fun to watch come out of the ground and they’ll also want trellising of some kind. mostly decide what you like to eat and you can check with the county extension service to see what will grow there and what varieties are best locally.
if you’re staying for a while, you could put in blackberries or just find out where they are and go pick them when they’re ripe. i used to can them when i lived in oregon.
okay, it really is good night now. sweet dreams all.
i have tons of wild blackberries all around me – more so than at the cabin in boulder creek. are sugar peas like snow peas? i think i can do peas and green beans – do they crop all at once or can i pick ripe ones like i do the apples where they come in over time?
crap, snap not sugar.
g’nite gw and thanks
Even a small salad garden is immensely satisfying for me. Or pots of herbs for cooking.
One of my favorite times is going through the garden in the late afternoon to see what’s ready to eat. Partly because it’s so glorious. Partly because it’s kind of like sticking it the man!!! Screw you, I’ll grow it!
Suzanne, if you don’t know it, permit me to introduce you to Garden Web – a wonder of the tubes.
i did not and thank you.
time for me to cuddle up with token and enjoy the quiet solitude the rest of the evening offers.
g’nite pups and thank you for hanging out with me tonight.
i’m out too
Broccoli can be kind of large but if you get a variety that puts out good side shoot production it’s a long season harvest. Good looking plants,too.
When that cartoon first came out, I sat on my sister’s piano bench with her, watching. My sister graduated from HS when she was 16, so she identified with Peabody. I wanted to run away, so I identified with Sherman. My sister and I both liked Boris and Natasha episodes a lot better, though…
Mr. Peabody has always been my hero.
I suspect Paul Krugman admires him as much as I do.
