Patrick's Weekender - long overdue

It's Tuesday, and I just read Patrick's Weekender.  But what the heck, here is my belated response --

1. What was your favorite animated cartoon series when you were little? Remember, when I was little there was no cartoon "series" because television wasn't invented yet.  However, I loved Pluto in Disney cartoons... and the Three Little Pigs had just come out.  I begged for a Seven Dwarfs record.

2. What was your favorite "live action" children's series when you were little? There was radio adventure series...Jack Armstrong, the All American Boy.  I followed his adventures on radio (that's television without pictures.)

3. Who is your favorite muppet character? Kermit, who tries to keep his collegues sane and on track, usually without success.  Followed by Ernie, completly madcap, a sort of Marx Brother become cartoon character.  And then there's Bert, steady, sober, in an insane world..but with a few quirks of his own.  That's me...see next question.

4. Take the quiz: What is your Sesame Street personality?  It was Bert.

5. Have you ever appeared on a locally-produced children's show, or would you have ever wanted to? Oh, yes would have wanted to.  I nagged my family into taking me to see Hollywood Barn Dance... a radio variety show.  They endured an hour's worth, but dragged me home before the second hour aired.

6. Cartoons like "The Flintstones," though animated, were really intended for adults. What's your favorite adult (non-porn) cartoon? King of the Hill.  Bill Hill tries, like Ernie of the Muppets, to make sense of the world around him, though it is madcap.  I feel like Bill Hill, living in an old folks home, with all my strange neighbors with their collection of life long quirks.
