    Default “Plunk your magic twanger, Froggy”

    Bonus points if you can post the lyrics of the opening song
    "Reason and facts are sacrificed to opinion and myth. Demonstrable falsehoods are circulated and recycled as fact. Narrow minded opinion refuses to be subjected to thought and analysis. Too many now subject events to a prefabricated set of interpretations, usually provided by a biased media source. The myth is more comfortable than the often difficult search for truth."

    So check my memory, was this connected to Buster Brown and his dog Tige somehow? Or am I mixing memories?

    No, your brain cells are still functioning as intended RonII.

    was the host of that show after he finished playing Jingles, sidekick to Wild Bill Hickock.

    I can't say now just why Froggy was so threatening to me when he'd suddenly disappear from the show; I was all of 6 when the show premiered so there's that.

    I thought the OP was talking about Rainbow, a Brit kids tv show with this very dodgy episode about twangers

    A friend once sampled sounds like this and rearranged them in a tune which he accompanied on the fiddle.

    Gunga and Rama are not amused. Not only should one know the lyrics to the opening theme song, one should also know the lyrics to the song they sing when extracting animals from the catch pit. In Hindi. I do. Everybody should!

    And don't forget to go to church and Sunday school!
