Is it possible for me to be this excited every week? Yes, yes it is. Frightening isn't it? :)
Today's fare, Daffy Duck and Porky Pig Meet The Groovie Goolies, is what I always imagined mescaline would do to my childhood memories. The voices are hysterical, the plot absurd, and the action so disconected that one's head is likely to throb. Ain't it neat? I honestly can't put much in blog format that can do justice to this fine, freaky cartoon that wasn't said during the show. It's a mindjob and a half. You may want to listen with friends.

As you go through the show, you'll hear about the live action portion that was cut from the copy I have for reasons passing understanding. Well thanks to the glut of nostaligia the internet provides, we are able to restore the missing part of the movie via YouTube. It's a hoot and well worth the few minutes you'd need to see it all.

An interesting note about this segment comes from YouTube commenter mightyfilm: "You can clearly hear music recycled from Fat Albert at least twice in that segment. The horse riding scene and the Cow stampede/ Sneeae segment both come from the Brown Hornet segments." He's totally right. Now your challange is to find the Fat Albert episodes these snippets come from. If you do, please let us know in the comments.
The other link we've got for you is, as promised, the Groovie Goolies version of Chick-A-Boom. It doesn't make any more sense than the version that was released for airplay and played on today's show.

Okie dokie, I'm tapped out. Have you listened to this thing?!? It's crazy!
