I stand corrected, Mr Nostalgia...thanx...I remember Koko, the clown. climbing outta the inkwell

Broz...great sir & group here...I thought most off my memories were either long forgotten among the rest of my generation or mistaken on my part...luckily they're mostly faulty memory on my part...I'm not COMPLETELY crazy after all...

CB, that was "Uncle Don."
And the story apparently is apocryphal.

"Out of the Inkwell"...aka Koko the Clown...IIRC the same cartoonist who created Betty Boop...Max Fleischer...WHATTA GREAT CLASSIC!!!  Uncle Fred...the same dude who's career was somewhat truncated after his infamnous "THAT oughtta hold the little bastards for a while" remark on an open mike...in a day when the 'open mike' night shtik wasn't yet popular...nor was the late Lenny Bruce...

In NYC on Channel 13 they showed "Aesop's Fables" cartoons, almost all of which ended with "Farmer Gray" (aka Farmer Brown) holding a sack of money/gold/jewels (or so he thought), but when he opened it out poured hundreds of black mice that chased him off into the horizon and the farm animals laughing. 

Such memories LOL.
