Isa's dancing frog reminded me (for some unknown reason) of Fruit Stripe Gum - the one with the zebra on the pack. That and Lick-a-Stick were our snacks of choice.

I definitely remember the Fruit Stripe zebra! And that reminded me of Teaberry gum and the Teaberry Shuffle.

Did you have wax lips and the little 6-pack of wax bottles containing different colored nectars?

Isa runs away before she really shows her age. Everyone knows she's old anyway, so what the hell!

umm... those don't really ring a bell. Might be a Canadian thing, though. We used to buy Honeymooners, jelly raspberries, Lick-a-Sticks, those chocolate-but-not-really-chocolate cars, caramels... hmmm... can't remember what else. Gobstoppers and those candy fruit-shaped things that would kill your teeth.

You mean they were around long enough to switch to plastic tubes??? Our pixie stix were in thick paper straws, spiralled like a paper towel end roll. The end always got wet and would collapse so you hd to keep tearing them off as you emptied the tube. Technology - it's a wonderful thing! (Sometimes...)

Pixie sticks cause children to become hyper.

You Can't Do That On Television's cast included a young Alanis Morrisette.

The best School House Rock song was "Conjunction Junction," though "Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, Get Your Adverbs Here!" is a close second, with "3 is a Magic Number" and "I'm Just A Bill" getting honourable mentions.

That is all.

I don't think we got to see Alanis on TV....

Beerman begs to differ on your choice of songs... He agrees all three are good songs, but Verb: That's What's Happenin' (done by Moby) is the BEST!!!!

I forgot about I'm Just A Bill - that's one of my favs too. (Okay, add in Mr. Morton - Mr. Morton is the subject of my sentence and what the predicate says, he does...)

Greg - never figured you for a SchoolHouse Rock theme song connoisseur. You must check out the CD with the alt bands doing the covers. (Unless you have it already and hiding it in your closet...)

I remember Alanis - although I had the biggest crush on Alistair. I've had the dang theme song stuck in my head for the last two days, now...

I also had a René Simard t-shirt when I was about 5. What was my mother thinking???

I do not have the CD, but I have heard it before. And it would not be in my closet, but rather in my CD case, alphabetically filed between Peter Schilling's Fehler Im System and S Club 7's S Club.

I must say that admitting I own those two CDs will probably make the members of this community think I have bad taste in music. But it's really not that bad. I also own lots of cool stuff, too.

We've admitted to having the Schoolhouse Rock CD and the Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego CD by Rockapella - the latter being filed either in the "R" or "W" section, depending on they day.

Since I am not familiar with Peter Schilling nor S Club 7, I can't comment on those CDs being in bad taste. I'd be more concerned about it if you had the complete Engelbert Humperdinck collection on CD (filed appropriately, and alphabetically, under "H"). ;)
