Cranium Command

I was listening to the Meandering Mouse podcast today, and show #85 covered all the attractions in the Wonders of Life pavilion. I miss WOL -- it was a neat place, and one that really held so much potential. A boatload of money would have fixed that place right up!

What I really miss from the pavilion, of course, is Cranium Command. What a fun show!

I had forgotten that the drill sargeant's name was General Knowledge (get it?), and how he kept getting Buzzy's name wrong -- Scuzzy was my favorite version of his name! And the General's big threat was that he would put Buzzy in charge of piloting a chicken OR a talk show host.

And remember how many great comedians played the various body parts Buzzy was piloting? George Wendt as the stomach was a classic, but I had forgotten that Hans and Franz were the left and right ventricles of the heart (Dana Carvey and Kevin Nealon from SNL)!

I'd love to see this show moved and re-opened. Can't we squeeze it in somewhere at Imagination?

If you miss it too, check out the episode.

Thanks for the tip!

...and are you SURE you haven't picked up a word or two from livin' in the MidWest? Quick you say sitting or setting when referring to hanging out on the porch? :-) Have a friend from Ohio who has the best accent....Ya know, perhaps I just like the mid-west AND southern thing...who knows! LOL

Great show with an excellent cast.

My wife's favorite was "The Making Of Me" Over a year ago Earl from Trapped On Vacation recorded that one.

Happy you like Scrooge.

I'm a HUGE fan of Cranium Command Deb! And I agree - we should move it to another pavillion. Imagination works - or heck - let's just slap it into Yeah! :)

I do say "sitting", but a "y'all" definitely sneaks in occasionally!
