Fan Mail From A Flounder

Ave atque vale Alex Anderson, the cartoonist who created Rocky and Bullwinkle.

Rocket J. Squirrel and Bullwinkle The Moose were the perfect pair: One hard-headed, the other noodle-headed. They were don’t-miss TV every night.

And don’t miss this tribute in the Washington Post:

  1. I tip my Kirwood Derby to Anderson and wish him a gentle upsidaisium to a better place (NoBikini Atoll?).

    Aaaaaaah – Dan Kennedy tweeted that he didn’t like Rocky & Bullwinkle! Say it ain’t so! I was totally hooked. It was one of the best things about my childhood.

      Ditto, Steve. I don’t know who Dan is anymore. I’m still trying to figure out what to say to him.

      • Steve Stein says:

        That trick never works.

        A friend tells my favorite Rocky and Bullwinkle quote story: He was at a high-tech company, working with his group when a new Russian woman colleague comes into the meeting with what looks to be a bowl of pudding.
        “Where’d you get the pudding?”, he asked.
        “Is mousse”, she replied.
        Whereupon everyone in the meeting added “And squirrel?” and cracked up.
        She didn’t get it.
