    1. All of Sid and Marty Krofft’s shows were weird, and my favorite was Lidsville (which starred Charles Nelson Reilly and Butch Patrick [of Addams Family fame]). Does anyone else remember Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp?

    Yep, watched this on Saturday mornings at the tender age of oh, 6- or 7 (?!) and I see it as a foundation stone in subliminally preparing me for the wonderful world of music …:-))

    watched this as a Kid (and yes I also remember Lancelot Link), in fact one of my personal jokes is to say to people somewhat randomly “hey Drooper, take out the trash!”…of course almost no one ever gets it, only one person in the last 35 years has gotten the joke…


  3. Yeah, I loved the Banana Splits. Also left a lasting impression on me, which perhaps was not a good thing.

    No, but the words ‘Secret Chimp’ strike a chord in me, like some hidden part of my consciousness is bursting to break its programming. Might also explain why I feel like a banana right now.

    I’m looking forward to checking out all these shows again on YouTube when my kids are older. (Ah, YouTube, you provideth for me at the same time as you taketh away.)
