Moose and Squirrel Day!

Happy Birthday to one of the funniest shows ever on television "Rocky and Bullwinkle".
It was on this date in 1959 that "Rocky and his Friends" debuted on ABC and introduced us to a heroic moose and flying squirrel as they fought those rotten no-goodniks Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale. The show also featured "Fractured Fairy Tales", Peabody's Improbable History" and segments featuring Bullwinkle, "Mr. Know-It-All" and "Bullwinkle's Corner".
In 1961 the show moved to NBC and was retitled for it's new prime time slot, "The Bullwinkle Show". We got all our old friends plus two new features, "Dudley Do-Right of the Mounties" and Aesop Fables".
In my opinion "Rocky and Bullwinkle" was one of the funniest shows ever written and this classic show has stood the test of time and will endure forever.

"And now, here's something we hope you'll really like!"

I do and it's "Rocky and Bullwinkle"!!!

Not only is it funny, it's intelligent without stooping to obscenity or rudeness. Three cheers for Jay Troplong Ward, Bill Scott, Paul Frees, June Foray and cartoons you finally "got" twenty years later!
