A Quinn Martin Production

I was having a discussion about old television shows with a friend the other day, and we came to the conclusion that ol' Quinn must have thought his entire audience was illiterate.


Produced by Quinn Martin for Desilu.

Chikka bow, chikka bow bow.

Confession. I loved this theme music when I was a kid.

My Mom loved this show.

My God, he couldn't even leave them there foreeners alone. The narrator's voice is completely wrong.

See this is why I don't watch as much tv as I did when I was a kid. No-one will read the credits to me.

I would also like to make it perfectly clear that all these shows were aired years and years before I was born. My grandparents told me about them. Really.

More theme music fun here & here. Warning: the second link will cause retinal bleeding.

No Kicking Penguins!

A fairly recent find that I'm just getting around to posting.

There is a young boy named Colby that lives in Newfoundland.

One day his mother while walking around the house kicked a toy penguin out of her way. Colby then drew a picture and posted it on the fridge. The new house rule:

Colby's uncle heard the story and had a graphics artist @ the Telegram clean up the image (Here's the original). It was then posted on Reddit and went viral.

Next thing the family knows, the American military based in Antarctica has made "No Kicking Penguins" official policy.

And you may ask "why not kick penguins?" The answer (and official webpage tagline) is: "Because you just shouldn't. What did they ever do to you?"

Sounds like a pretty good policy to me.

I'm a sucker for the cute & I couldn't resist the shirt. All proceeds to various agencies that assist with autism. (Colby is autistic).

Cool CBC story here...

And the official No Kicking penguins site.
