PaPa Magoo, Fred Flintstone and Mr. Peabody and Sherman

Friday randomonsity (cool word eh?) and stuff. First I've got another piece of artwork by my other Grand daughter, Emma, age 5. This is proof that she is truly my granddaughter.

This is a portrait of me that she drew about a week ago, I think Sally named it PaPa Magoo... but the thing that's important here is the Hitler mustache that I'm sportin'.

Now I spent most of my free time from the 3rd grade until the 6th grade, drawing Hitler mustaches on just 'bout every picture I came across. I took it upon myself as some weird sort of Hitler mustache crusade.

Emma doesn't know this little bit of history I just gave you.

Look at my mustache.

The kid is a genius and is getting a head start on a gratifying and pleasant hobby. I'm expecting big things out of her, artistically speaking.

Next is an old commercial that has nothing to do with Hitler, or mustaches... but is heavy on Fred Flintstone and Winston cigs. Let's see 'em do a commercial like this now days.

Ah boy... nuthin' like sitting in the living room watching cartoons with the old man and flickin' ashes on mom's carpet. Good times, good times....

Lastly I ran across this video the other day. Mr. Peabody and Sherman and the Way Back Machine were one of my favorite cartoons and also the biggest reason to watch Bullwinkle and Rocky.

Have a great weekend folks!

Hello "papa Magoo" (laughs) im manxgirl's daughter i spotted your grand daughters picture, And told myself "i would be proud of that too. Even with the hitler moustach". her drawings are good for her age. and she is using the whole page, not a fraction. KEEP HER DRAWING. She will get better. and maybe one day she will be better than me.. (note to self must put girlies on Blog).

it was a pleasure to read your entry.

Mr. Peabody and Sherman brings back some memories. It's been a while since I've seen fractured fairy tales or any other old school cartoons.

Ummmm....the emperor has a Hitler mustache, but where are his clothes? (Kidding--she's a genius!)

Another smart child. Love the arms!

Looks like you've given her recycled paper to draw on. HOW Green of you guys!!!

Was that a fax remittance confirmation page???

Just an observation!

Not only did she give you a Hitler mustache, but it also looks like you're doing a bit of that high-steppin' Hitler march as well! hahaha!

Your granddaughters are a hoot. Hang on to those pictures!!
