The Monstrous Movie Clip Of The Day: As Cool McCool Says "When You're Right, Number One, You're Right"



Written By: Ken Hulsey

Just try and name every cartoon and classic commercial in this great clip that I now refer to as "fifteen minutes of pure retro joy!". In know I did and I almost went blind! Granted the task wasn't too difficult on my end because I'm actually ... ahem ... cough ... old enough to remember just about all of them.

For all of you out there too young to remember any of these shows let me clue you into the fact that in a time long ago, but not forgotten, yet, Saturday morning television was not the vast entertainment wasteland it is today. No sir, Saturday morning television was three channels (NBC, ABC & CBS .. yes there was a time when there were only three) of non-stop animation and really cool programs aimed at young people that lasted from 6 am to noon. Yes, a whole six hours!

To break it down for you, a lot the shows on Adult Swim, well they are based off "real" Saturday morning shows from the sixties and seventies. Oh ... check out Boomerang some time!

Okay let's see if I can do this? Play along at home if you like!

"Spiderman"
"H.R. Pufnstuf"
That damn "Life" cereal commercial ... "Hey Mikey! He Likes It!"
"Davey and Goliath"
"Time Bomb" ... okay I don't know that one. Any show that gives kids the idea that explosives are okay sounds irresponsible to me! That's the parent in me talking. I'm just mad that I didn't get to blow stuff up!
"Stratego"
"Casper"
"The Beatles"
"Atom Ant"
"Secret Squirrel"
"Top Cat"
"BASH!" ... a game that looks like you get to beat the crap out of some poor slob with a hammer! God I miss the days when mindless violence was cool.
"Electro-Shot Shooting Gallery" ... back when guns were cool! What has happened to us?
"Underdog" .. who can kick the ass of every one of those lame superheroes in the clip before it.
"Boggle"
"The Jetsons" .. okay I know you've heard of that one!
"King Kong" ... yep the big guy had a cartoon series that was made in Japan (See King Kong Escapes)
"Mystery Date" ... A meat market for young girls ... wanna know why you never live up to your girls expectations? Thank you Milton Bradley!!!
"The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour" ... the coolest intro (next to Johnny Quest) ever!! .. "Overture, curtain, lights! This is it. The night of nights. No more rehearsing or nursing a part. We know every part by heart!"
"Space Ghost"
Um ... a game where you overload a camel until his spine snaps ... again great idea!
"Magilla Gorilla"

Okay ... enough of that I have Attention Deficit Disorder so I can't keep that up for fifteen minutes!

You get the idea anyway just about everything that was ultra cool to us kids back in the late sixties and seventies condensed into one glob of images that makes us pine away for days gone bye and gives us the bragging rights over the younger generation who grew up with sub par programing.

(I'm laughing and pointing) Ha Ha!

Here are the words to the Bugs Bunny intro:

"The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour."
(curtain rises)
"Overture, curtain, lights!
This is it. The night of nights.
No more rehearsing or nursing a part.
We know every part by heart!
(cane flip)
Overture, curtain, lights!
This is it. We'll hit the heights!
And oh, what heights we'll hit!
On with the show, this is it!
(character procession)
Tonight what heights we'll hit!
On with the show, this is it!"
"Starring the Oscar-winning rabbit, Bugs Bunny."
"And also starring my fast-feathered friend, the Road Runner!"
(Road Runner zips forward on film projector screen)
"Beep, beep!"
"Road Runner, that Coyote's after you!
Road Runner, if he catches you, you're through!
Road Runner, that Coyote's after you!
Road Runner, if he catches you, you're through!
That Coyote is really a crazy clown!
When will he learn that he never can slow him down?
Poor little Road Runner never bothers anyone.
Just running down the road is his idea of having fun!"
"Beep, beep!"
"The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour."

When will that Coyote ever learn?
