I don't remember that one, the horse looks like a melon on legs! :lol:

Camberwick Green was one of my favourites:



btw i have the series on dvd and that clip is for real :lol:

we got the hanna-barbara(spl?) stuff here, also Banana Splits, i think with a different theme tune, and the ghostbusters thing with the ape that came back as a cartoon about 20 years later.

AHAHAA! Lenny Bruce ftw! I can't believe someone else has seen that! A friend of mine collects RCA Video Disks and players, and that bit was an easter egg on a disk of Bruce's standup stuff.

The one with Forrest Tucker & Larry Storch? That was dismal.

That Lenny Bruce vid was never allowed on American Telly™ . Mr. Bruce was, in fact, burned at the stake for saying bad words in public and telling about the time he saw Eleanor Roosevelt's tits .

My friends older brother was sitting in his room laughing his ass off (probably smoking grass) and he told us to come in and check this out.

He had it on VHS, I had no idea where he got it... I don't even know how I remembered it just now (it's been nigh on twenty years), but I thought somebody here must have seen... I shoulda guess it'd be you :wave:

I worked with the Video Disk guy for ten years: he and I constantly entertained each other with Wacky Comedy Bits™ . He had an encyclopedic memory of Bruce, Python, Brooks, Carlin, and Much Much More. The company was owned by the English, so it helped the lulz greatly that the workplace was never short of Brits and all sorts of other foreign types. We had great fun.

this is interesting:

Starman Jones and Glory Road were my favourite Heinlein books when I was growing up.

Not sure I ever read either as an adult, loved Asimov and Harry Harrison as a kid too, and after how awful I found them after I grew up... dunno if I want to find out Heinlein went the same way.

I know exactly what you mean. In the 90s, I was so excited to find "Lost in Space" on VHS. I planned to watch them with my kids, thinking "wow, I get to vicariously re-live the magic all over again"! Boy, was that a bust.

I can (and do) still read Heinlein, though. I just assume the proper mindset (kid mode). My son enjoyed when I read aloud Red Planet and Have Space Suit, Will Travel, complete with character voices. Those two are still my favorite RAH books.

OK, thanks for the suggestions.

Puss in Boots was pretty good; lots of storybook jokes and cat humor, and a good villain.

Uh, by 'good villain' I mean 'entertaining', not that his moral character was 'good'. He was, of course, quite 'evil', which is 'good' for a villain...

I thought it was a tad serious and a take on Rango ... :idk:

I just watched it.. i thought it was sorta in the middle. not amusing enough to be really funny, but then not deep enough to hold up the serious tone.

I mean I liked it, but it's not going to become a family classic with us..

oohhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Image

but most kids will probably like it and over look all that.

I saw hugo too a few weeks ago .. Image

way too much fakking hype and scorsase ass kissing. decent enough movie... the 'fairytale" aspect of course is a winner with kids.. but considering how derailed and cliche the plot was, id give it a D- but a C for putting it into the "meh, just something to watch" catagory and not the "I'd rather have corrective hernia repair than watch this" catagory.

Yah, Hugo didn't attract me.

I haven't seen Rango, but my fam disliked it. We have it. My daughter saw it once. She will watch a favored movie every day for a week, but will not watch it again with me. I'm curious about it. Given what you know about me, would I like it?

We watched Hugo last week, I don't think it met the level of hype. It's worth a rental, but I'm glad I didn't shell out full theater price for it.

We went out and saw "The Artist" just before Oscars, I thought it was very well done.

On DVD, we just finished seasons 1 and 2 of "Downton Abbey". GOOD STUFF.

Now we're starting on "Game of Thrones".

.................... you'll probably give it a meh. nothing bad in it, but it's a bit too surreal for a kids movie. nothing really pull you into it either and it just feels kinda vacant. Excellent, excellent CGI though.
