I may have only been 3 but.....
30 November 2005 | by (Phx. Arizona ("Arizona Smells Funny"!- Homer Simpson)) – See all my reviews

I was only 3 and 4 when I saw this show. (I was 3 in '71 so it must have been re-runs already.) I remember just laughing at how silly and goofy the characters acted. I barely understood what,if anything ,that they were saying. I watched the cartoons 1/2 understanding them of course.

The theme song never,and I mean never,exited my head from day one and recently I found a 45rpm copy of the song,which I bought for about $1.

I gotlucky in 2003 and got cable TV and for one night only on Cartoon Network got to see about 3 or 4 shows in a row! I laughed a little but obviously what's funny then isn't always as funny later. I did laugh at the cartoons (unintentionally). For the times,they were pretty good.

The show can be currently seen on "Boomerang" channel,basically Cartoon network Pt. 2 on Hi-Def cable.

I'll still give a 10 star rating,because when childhood memories are good,they're always good. Great job Daws Butler and Allan Melvin & Co. Allan Melvin by the way was Barney on "All In The Family" and Sam Franklin the Butcher on "The Brady Bunch." (Allan passed away at 84 on 01/19/2008).
