November 19, 1959 - ABC debuted it's newest show "Rocky and His Friends" and parody and puns were never done better!
The show featured the adventures of a flying squirrel and his talking moose budddy as they fought the forces of evil from that mean little country, Pottsylvania and it's most sinister agents Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale.
The show also featured the time traveling adventures of Mr. Peabody and Sherman and the bumbling Mountie, Dudley Do-Right.
We also got the great parodies of Aesop's Fables and the fabulous Fractured Fairy Tales.
