Your Monday Morning Mental Sorbet: You Are Her Lucky Star

Jabberjaw on Ice

Every Monday we like to start off your week with something. A very special kind of something–it either is designed to make your brain spin or make your brain get very, very numb and quiet with unnameable dread. Whichever approach you need to face your work week, we like to help as best we can.

And not that we’re trying to follow any sort of “on ice” theme (see last week), but after finding this on Everything is Terrible, how could we resist? It’s from 1978: Hanna-Barbera’s All-Star Comedy Ice Revue. In attendance is a crapload of Hanna-Barbera characters, including the forgotten Banana Splits and The Hair Bear Bunch. Hosting the madness? Roy Clark of Hee-Haw and Bonnie Franklin of One Day at a Time.

Between Clark’s outfit, an inexplicable exercise-on-ice routine, Jabberjaw vs. Franklin, and a bizarre Hong Kong Phooey bit that will be surpassed only by the upcoming feature film…it is definitely on the numbing side of the house. Enjoy.

Hanna-Barbera’s Way of Saying “Don’t Do Drugs”

Hanna-Barbera anti-marijuana ad

Okay, so, I don’t know about you…but what I take away from this is never hold hands with an anthropomorphic cigar. Because he’ll lead you to the supporting cast of the movie Lifeforce. After you…um, gain briefly the powers of Lightspeed from Power Pack.

This is an anti-marijuana ad from 1970 created by Hanna-Barbera.

And now you know why I’ve never taken drugs. Because we’ve discussed the inside of my head before and they’re just not necessary.
