The Powers of Nostalgia: Rusty is the man…tin can?

March 23, 2007 at 9:21 am (cartoon, nostalgia, Socrates, wizard of oz)

I’d like to begin a series of posts, of say, 32948 parts, about things which I find nostalgic. The themes may range from when I lived on main street and was on a bender for the better part of a summer, or the cartoons I watched while eating cereal as a child. Today it’s the latter.

I watched The Tales of the Wizard of Oz while eating cereal every weekday morning before elementary school. Obviously, this cartoon is quite old, even for a child of the eighties, and I couldn’t wait for it to finish and Astroboy or Inspector Gadget to begin.

It still left an impression and I have found myself recalling the name’s of the characters years later. It’s something special to have the scarecrow with no brains called Socrates.

Thanks go to Dr. Braino for posting these clips on youtube.
