Time for Timer – Inside the Digestive System

Timer taught me everything I know about nutrition and the human body. I still make ice pops in an ice cube try with juice, plastic wrap and toothpicks. I also think of my inner workings as a poorly made and dangerous looking factory.

    I fondly remember the time for timer toons, particualrly the chunk of cheese one “When my 10 gallon hat’s a feelin’ 5 gallons flat, I hanker fer a hunka cheese!”, I also remember the ice cube tray one quite well. The messages never got through to me though, I just found them entertaining.

    I’d be very sad to get X-Rayed and not find a computer console HQ and levers composing my inner Square machinery.

    I bring a Sharpie to the doctor’s office, in case such a malicious truth should manifest itself.

  3. There is something inherently special about Saturday Mornings through the 70’s and 80’s. A certain kind of magic that came from knowing that Early September brought you a ton of new, first run cartoons and if for any reason you missed them you were the odd man out at the playground on Monday morning. In some cases you’d never get another chance to see certain cartoons again! Especially before VCR’s became a staple in the typical home. Mighty Orbots aired once and never again!

    I never heard of the orbots show when it originally aired (or if I did, I long since forgot), but I have watched most of it online, thanks to veoh & other video sites.
