Editor's note: you know what I liked about old cartoons and children's books? They weren't made for idiots! I suspect that it's more a symptom of the writers, editors and producers and not so much the aptitude of children today. After all, you can only watch what's being shown and many kids like the old cartoons just as well. This is a good story. Today it's about bawdy humor and utter nonsense. That's usually something I'm all about just not for little kids. All right the sermon is over.

Side Note: Lewis Arquette is the Father of the famous Arquette Acting Siblings - Rosanna, Patricia and David. Lewis' Father, Cliff Arquette was a regular on Hollywood Squares who went by the name of "Charley Weaver". I see Wikipedia says that the arquette's are also decendants of Merriweather Lewis of Lewis & Clark fame.
