Grape Ape and a look back at the 1970’s

Why am I thinking of the 70’s today? Maybe I miss the simple times. Maybe I need more oxygen to the brain. Do you remember where you were or what you were doing during the 70’s?

The Cartoons


The Grape Ape was a completely mindless piece of entertainment. Back then, I loved him. Now, I think the theme song could possibly cause a brain hemorrhage.

Droopy!  A canine classic. He was the happiest dog around, right?

Fun wear from the 70’s!

This was one of my favorite Tees.

Don’t forget the shoes! 



Platform shoes! The wearable weapons.

And the big bells!

What about Bell Bottoms? Some were way out there!

Music! This is a TRIP!  Loving some 70’s sounds!

This post was inspired by a dented mind and the fact that I just don’t get the cartoons that my kids watch, the choices they make in the clothing department or the music they are always plugged into enjoy. And it’s ok.

I encourage their creative differences and force them to go shopping. When it comes to the ear buds we have developed a communication plan. The plan is sort of a combination of sign language, charades (airline traffic controller), and a little hand to head contact!  It works for us!

So what moves you today? What’s your flavor? Slang from the day! If you’re hip you’ll check it out!
