Mr. Magoo, Peppe' Le Pew and Woody Woodpecker

Peppe' Le Pew
Mr. Magoo
Woody Woodpecker
And the woodpecker who thinks my aluminum siding is wood. Really bad photo, but you try and take a picture of a woodpecker from a closed window. LOL




Anyway, this morning as I was getting ready I heard this woodpecker trying to do his woodpecking stuff on the side of my house only there is no wood there, just aluminum siding and brick. Do you think that the phrase birdbrain came because of woodpeckers? Anyway, it got me thinking about my favorite old cartoon characters. We've been talking about a few of them lately. My daughter had never heard of Mr. Magoo. How can a child grow up and not know about Mr. Magoo? My granddaughter Maddie has been making a face that I call her squishy Mr. Magoo face and my daughter keeps asking me, "Who's Mr. Magoo?" HELLO How did you grow up not knowing Mr. Magoo. Wasn't there even a Mr. Magoo Christmas Carol show.?And if you try real hard I bet you can remember Woody's theme music and how it went. But my all time favorite was Peppe' Le Pew. I loved that skunk and how he thought he was a wonderful french lover and always tried to romance the black lady cat with the stripe on her back. So tell me who was your favorite old cartoon and don't tell me you don't remember any of these guys because you will just make me feel old. Have a great weekend and don't panic because there are only 11 days left until Christmas!

Yes, that is definitely a birdbrained bird!

I used to LOVE Mr. Magoo. But I have to say that my favorite cartoons were always Bugs Bunny/Roadrunner. I have been thinking of buying them on DVD for my kids since they have have never seen them and I am sure they will love them.

Joan...Thanks for your thoughtful words on my blog...I am feeling much better, today...on the mend...thank the Lord.

That woodpecker reminds me of a similar one when I was a kid...great memories...but long story...so I won't bore anyone with that now...maybe a future post though...thanks for rattling my brain.

As far as cartoons...I never watched that many...but my all-time favorite to this day...is Tweetie Bird...not sure if that was the name of the cartoon...but he was my favorite character...he and the little old lady who you never saw, except when she was to move him in his cage....ahhhh..."I thought I saw a puddy cat"...."I did, I did...see a puddy cat"....ok that's sad...either sad that I remember that...or that I only remember those 2 lines...

Blessings...
Teresa

Poor Woody, maybe you should buy some suet with bugs in it (they do make it,) and hang in the tree...poor mixed up bird!

This time of year, my favorite would have to be charlie brown. I watched him pick that same poor christmas tree year after year.

Daffy Duck, baby, hands down! lol I loved Daffy Duck. Still do. But I loved Pepe Le Pew, too. And the RoadRunner. And we used to watch Mr. Magoo every morning before school. I LOVED Mr. Magoo...I wonder if MY kids know who he is. I'll have to ask...

I never could stand Winnie the Pooh, though. And I've never been all that crazy for Mickey Mouse (I know - people all over the world are gasping in horror!). I liked Scrooge McDuck and oh yeah, I really liked Sylvester and Tweety Bird.

Now why am I feeling this almost overwhelming urge to go watch Cartoon Network?? lol

The woodpeckers around here do the same thing. This morning one was pecking on a light on a light pole. Oh & I remember the cartoon characters! :)
