And when they're naked they react like this:



It makes no sense.

Excuse me but I have to ask: Tweety is a GIRL or is that a typo?! Not that I have a problem with that but...oh my childhood!

Tweety is male, but some people seem to believe that he's female.

Yep, and that's the stuff long, stupid internet arguments are made of. And when they're done with that, they move on to whether Roadrunner says "Beep Beep" or "Meep Meep", whether it's "Smokey Bear" or "Smokey the Bear", or whether the Lone Ranger says "Hi Ho Silver" or "Hi Yo Silver".

I do remember reading somewhere that officially, it's "Beep Beep," but my Google-fu is failing me now. j

No worries, wouldn't change my mind anyway. I heard "meep meep" as a child and that's what's set in my brain.

I dont have a cite but I believe officially it is "Beep Beep", however I still think its "Meep Meep" even though it doesn't make sense (of coursse the whole thing is a carotton so there is that). It sounds like Meep Meep and that's how I do it for fun.

Oh and Tweety is Male, Smokey has no middle initial (or last name - I see him like Cher or Teller - no last name) and the Lone Ranger says Hi Ho.

So there.

Fun fact, the father of one of my dad's childhood friends was the original voice of Smokey the Bear. The character's original name was actually Smokey Bear, the "the" was added in the 50s (the character was originally created in 1944) when a song was written and the extra syllable was used to keep the meter.

According to the sheet music, the Lone Ranger says "Hi Yo Silver Away!" A copy of that came with my first guitar, along with "Happy Trails to You" and other authentic radio and TV cowboy ballads.

Jackson Weaver? He had one of those memorable voices! I recall hearing the radio story announcing his passing back in the early 90s.

You must have lived in the DC area at one point--Harden & Weaver was a popular morning show for many many years.
