Pick it Up, Put it in the Bag, Bump Bump

When I told you the other day how hubby and I “bump butts” when we’re both in the bathroom/closet (due to its small size), I was reminded of one of my favorite cartoons.  The song from this cartoon pops into my head ALL.THE.TIME! 
So I thought I’d find the cartoon and share it with you all, and maybe we’ll all be singing “Pick it up, put it in the bag, bump bump!”

Although I always remember it as “First you pick it up, put it in the bag, bump bump”, here are the official lyrics:
First you stick the rag, put it in the bag, bump bump.
Then you bend your back, put it in the sack, bump bump.
That’s the way it’s done, it’s a lot of fun, bump bump
Cutting capers putting papers in the bag.
Bump bump!

TV networks, if you’re listening, we want more like this!  Less (none?) of the wanna-be-a-pop-star-and-look-like-I’m-25 stuff. 
Think Duck Tales, Marvin the Martian, the Roadrunner, Goofy & friends, Chip and Dale, Care Bears, Fraggle Rock, My Little Pony,  Pound Puppies, and David the Gnome. And for the older kids, how about Full House?  Or Saved by the Bell?  Where are the modern versions of these great, classic pre-teen and teen shows (I mean versions that don’t show the main character as a “secret pop star” in tons of makeup and skimpy outfits?)  Ok, I’m off my soapbox! 
I’m sure I missed some of the classic kid-shows….What shows would you bring back for the current generation??

  1. Oh boy, you don't want to get me started. It would go on waaaay to long. I love the old cartoons and shows with a little more family values. They are all gone. You are so right.
    Dang!
