Without social media I can’t know if my Rocky and Bullwinkle experience was singular or universal.
I watched the show and thought it was hip. It never spoke down to me. It was funny without insulting my 14 year old intelligence.
I watched the credits. I knew all the names of the producers, writers and most of the voice actors, though they were uncredited.
In honor of Dick Beals I found a Mr. Peabody and watched.
Incredibly witty. Characters spoke complex words, perfect for the occasion, but a little fast for the house. They’re not heard often on TV today.
A lot of politically incorrect jokes were told. Fun is made of Geronimo and Indians. They weren’t even good jokes. I winced a little when I heard them.
Paul Frees played Geronimo. You have heard him thousands of times. He’s the voice of Disney’s Haunted Castle. He is Boris Badenov. He is Ludwig von Drake.
Here is my favorite Rocky and Bullwinkle clip. It’s a compilation of Boris and Natasha entrances.
