Jon Terrific

Jon Terrific
Remember Tom Terrific? Well, meet Jon Terrific. For those of you who don't remember the former, Tom Terrific ran in a series of five- minute cartoons created specifically for the Captain Kangaroo show from 1957 - 1959.

Tom Terrific was drawn in simple cartoon style featuring a boy hero who lived in a treehouse and could transform himself into anything he wanted to thanks to his magic funnel-shaped thinking cap, which also enhanced his intelligence.

Enter Jon Terrific. There is a remarkable similarity to the original TT character.  Jon doesn't live in a treehouse, but he has a house nestled in the trees. When he wears his funnel-shaped hat, he magically turns into a pro golfer. Just this morning, Jon's intelligence was evident when he agreed with me regarding my political views, which doesn't happen very often. And he's my hero...and a really really good sport.

This is no horse pucky. The funnel hat really works. So, ladies, if you want the man in your life to create magic for you or at least make you laugh, be sure you put a funnel cap on his head.

As Tom Terrific was well aware, a funnel is good for collecting your thoughts, but be careful when putting kitchen items on your head. A mixing bowl can cause confusion, and never wear a colander! I tried it once and (yes, here it comes…) I strained myself ;)

Rah rah sis boom bah...lightly is back in usual form. Great to hear from you lightly. You've been missed.

Oh Randy, you are just so doggone clever and witty. I'll make sure Jon never dons a colander.
