This is what I thought of immediately:

http://stp.ling.uu.se/~starback/dcml/ch ... leboys.gif

Is that what you were really asking? If say, you've taken the concept of 'not T&F' to a new level!

That takes me WAY back to my misspent youth.

Look at the brain on tafnut ! You are exactly correct.

For all the rest of you, The Beagle Boys were a bunch of Bad Guys that were always attemping to steal all of Scrooge McDuck's money.

And you, sir, have just earned yourself a TAFNY nomination for Most Random Trivia Question!!

Back at ya - who was Mighty Manfred? The Correctest Answer fits in here:

_ _ _ * _ _ _ _ _ _ * _ _ _

and the explanation fits in here:

_ _ _ * _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ' _ * _ _ _

no googling!

I had to add the asterixes as spaces cuz this software deletes them!

You got me tafnut, I have no idea. The only Manfred I know is Manfred Mann and His Men, a rock group back in the 60's.

You mean Manfred Mann's Earth Band, who covered the Boss's 'Blinded By the Light' (about a million times better than Brucie ever sang it!)?

Think Captain Kangaroo.

Mr. Peabody was a posh sounding dog in a Jay Ward cartoon. A screechy-voiced kid named Sherman was his compatriot. Peabody's voice was done by Bill Scott who also did the voice of Bullwinkle D. Moose. They used to go waaaay back in time and I think every episode ended with a corny pun.

OK, I stand properly chastised. So, all you Party Pants, who or what was was

1. El Kabong
2. Lori Lemaris
3. Rosie (the Robot)
4. the little red-haired girl
5. Hans & Fritz K
6. Eugene the Jeep
7. Oa
8. the schmoo
9. Songbird
10. Nelliebelle

all this reveals a very misspent youth on my part, but it sure was fun.

scoring key
1-4 right: you are just too young to know better
5-7 right: you didn't snitch enough nickels from your momma's purse
8-9 right: you are a dyed (or died)-in-the-wool Baby Boomer
10 right: your childhood was as wasted (aka fun) as mine.

I had one in college - I was quite fond of it. Filled it with ice and water and green stuff.

Pat Butrum...no?
Penny's plane?
Anyone else here old enough to have seen Wally Cox and Tony Randall
doing
Mr. Peepers on live T.V.??????
I also remember a live western shot somewhere in N.J. that aired on
Dumont at around 4pm daily.......strong memory of an episode that
was whited out by a snowstorm.......it was the first time the snow on
the screen was actually snow.I think the set was a Setchell-Carlson floor model that weighed in circa 160 kilos.

Arthur Godfreys horse was named Goldie!!!! now that's trivial trivia.

That's right Tom, you got them. And I am so dense that I did not even realize that Garry was playing with words !

Learned those 2 moons when I was a little kid and have been boring/annoying people with that trivia for many years.
