Time for Timer:

These little cartoon segments usually aired during commercial breaks for the ABC Afternoon Specials, as well as on Saturday mornings. They were informational cartoons, that taught us how to eat healthy "I hanker for a hunk of cheese", and "Make a Wagon Wheel" (some sort of round sandwich). He looks kind of creepy in the above pic, but it's just a bad shot. He really wasn't that bad, I swear ;^)

I remember those myself.

Oh yeah. I answered your question in my response to your comments about the girl in the header on my blog.

Don't remember seeing those.

"Don't drown your food," he used to say. Nothing worse than a three inch yellow fantastical creature telling me how much ketchup to put on my fries. Jerk.

Keith: Remember the line "when I'm dancing a hoe-down and my boots kind of slow down, and anytime I'm weak in the knees"... it all looks so dirty when you type it out..

Ann: Well it was mostly during kids television shows, so it's not a surprise you don't remember.

Gilligan: Yeah he was kind of a control-freak, wasn't he...

Wow, I'd forgotten about those! I kinda wish they'd stayed forgotten.

joe said...

I think the waqon wheel was supposed to be cheese and crackers if I'm not mistaken. That's what I'm remembering anyway.

I hanker for a hunk of cheese I love, though it never made me eat cheese.
