My parents had a similar difficule conversation with me in the car on the way home from a movie when one of the characters was later revealed to be a Catholic.

My God-fearing Protestant parents NEVER took me to see a Republic Pictures movie again !

Must children be fed all this paranormal, ghosts crap? No wonder they grow up confused and superstitious and are such an easy prey to religious fanatics and other mental defectives..

Went to see it two nights ago. Cute but I have seen better animation.

You don't find out the character is gay till the end and it is sort of an anticlimactic joke that has little to do with the story. Anyway, I was checking out reviews of the movie before I went and some bitch whose vagina is probably sown shown with barbed-wire was ranting about how inappropriate this movie was for her little brats because of a gay character. Give me a break! Fortunately someone else told her that a moral judgment is not the same as a movie review.

I'm thinking back on "Fritz the Cat".

Welcome to "conditioning".

You are living proof that not everyone should raise children.

The question remains: why do you post such idiocy and lies?

Are you that screwed up that all you can do is invent mendacity in order to try and validate yourself?

And WORST OF ALL, people who live in the Demokratik People's Republik Of Kanada have NO sense of humor !

It must be because all their igloos are always buried under their annual 794 inches of snow !

Awhile ago, I was watching The Flintstones one night, and AMAZINGLY they had my 2 FAV episodes back to back ! I've NEVER seen that happen. The first episode is when Fred buys the hot piano for their wedding anniversary and Barney and the cops sing "Happy Anniversary". The following episode was the birth of Pebbles. The two BEST Flintstones episodes ever !

Also, I have an ear for voices. If I hear a person's voice just once, and hear it again 40 years later, I'll remember that voice and be able to identify it. It may take me some sime, but I always finally recognize the voice.

Bea Benaderet was a famous actress from the 30's thru the 60's and some of her most famous roles were as Cousin Pearl on The Beverly Hillbillies (a show I couldn't stand), Kate on Petticoat Junction (a show I liked), and Betty Rubble on The Flintstones (one of my FAVS of all time).

So one day I'm watching Petticoat Junction, and an actor is guest starring on the show whom I had never seen before in anything at all, but his voice was so damn familiar. I racked my brain for days trying to figure out where I heard that voce before.

Then I realized it was connected to Bea Benaderet's voice and I KNEW who that voice belonged to ! The actor on Petticoat Junction was playing a bank robber hiding out at The Shady Rest Hotel. I recognized the voice. It was Fred Flintstone who was voiced by actor Alan Reed.

(And this was decades before the invention of the web and imdb !)

There is one episode of Petticoat Junction that I never saw but would like to because I heard that there is an amusing joke in it.

Bea Benaderet had died, but the show continued, and there is an episode when Irene Ryan, as Granny, visits The Shady Rest, and marvels at a picture of the deceased Kate, because she cannot get over how much she looks like Cousin Pearl.

LOL
