A song by Moose and Zee
Now, that's my kind of music! Happy Sunday, Greg Olearests!
I loooove this. Needed it this morning. I'm so old, everything I read reminds me of something else. In this case, your post reminds me of something my daddy said years ago. Someone brought up Captain Kangaroo, and Daddy said wistfully, "That was our theme song." I was 14 when we got our first TV. We lived in an authentic tiny house and Mama and Daddy had six kids by then. The only time they got any privacy during daylight hours was when the little ones were fixed in front of Captain Kangaroo, and they could sneak away to grab some afternoon delight.
Thank you for bringing a huge smile to my face this morning! I haven’t heard this song in years!
Fantastic ..I had a revelation..last night,this morning.I watched the Movie Midnight Sky.. with George Clooney on Netflix (highly recommend)It's about Apocalypse Earth....but my revelation,which I imparted to you is. Nihilism that RepJamie Raskin,spoke about on the house floor,IS A Republican evil trait,being forced on Americans.(our kids especially) Nihilism is Nazism.The antithesis of the 2 N words..is CARING...This song teaches CARING.Caring is also L❤️VE.. SPREAD the Contagion of L❤️VE.. We must love our Planet,and CARE about all living things..Thank you Greg'OH MY DEAR🥰
For our family 80’s Sesame Street was our goto. In my childhood it involved Wile E Coyote seeking a roadrunner for dinner or white hat Roy Rogers racing to kill dirtbag ranchers. Lucky you.
Brings back memories…. From when my grands were tykes. I grieve for what tv could have been. I remember a time when PBS was so wonderful with no ads, A and E, The Learning Channel, and Bravo had quality shows. Then the repubs decided that commercial meant trash. Then I heard Andy Cohen being complimented for his effort to remake A and E and Bravo programming and I heaved. Of course, CBS’ Survivor ushered in reality bull Schitt to the nauseating. After Walter died and Rupert was invited in by Ronnie, the fake human, news became a commercial rating bonanza, dumbed down and geared to entertainment of the great unwashed and the smart people who had found a propaganda organ to match Goebbels. Repubs have always done everything they could to promote the lowest common denominator. Sorry for the rant, but I get pissed all over again when I resort to watching TCM and PBS shows from the 80’s and 90’s. Good thing my memory not great, almost like the first time.
We were just talking about “Lazytown” a few weeks ago, because it was just SO WEIRD! “Yo Gabba Gabba” was one of my oldest daughter’s favorites, along with “Wow Wow Wubbzy”. I do remember the Noggin song-they had many clever songs/skits. It was a big deal for me to allow my kids to watch anything other than PBS because I did not want them to see commercials. As for the Worm Moon - WOW! Last May I suddenly became aware of all the birds and animals in my backyard. Ever since, I have been amazed at all of the activity. The squirrels have been listening and digging this week and I assume they hear the worms. And the best thing is that the Robins have reappeared! Looking forward to Spring and all the wonders I will find in my backyard!
Glad I'm a subscriber. Loved your essay on poetry several months ago. Visit billserle.com
Thank you Greg! I have to admit I woke up kind of grumpy. I am not a fan of the “daylight savings time” time changes. Spring forward is a particular thorn in my side. But watching and listening to this turned my mood around and gave me my smile back.
Greg, that is so sweet. Now as a "grammy" of a 3 year old who has cerebral palsy we watch lots of Netflix children shows. Baby Bum is his favorite and the world stops for Wheels on the Bus. He is currently non-verbal, but I'm certain his first words will be "round and round all through the town".
Sometimes we just need something unrelated to anything else. This is that.
Delightful! It should be the national anthem, since the old one isn't serving us so well these days.
Cute and clever! I think that bird got a job at Twitter.
I created Moose A. Moose and his little pal, Z Bird, for Noggin. Also wrote their opening and closing songs. I'm glad they made you happy!
I stream a Philadelphia radio station at work, and every Friday evening there is a clip from the Banana Split show. It's short, but instantly I am seven, eating cold cereal and watching. Ya ya ya!
