Remembering the Bandit: Burt Reynolds

br1

Another Childhood hero gone, but not forgotten. Because Smokey and the Bandit was always a favorite of mine, I thought I’d remember Burt Reynolds in my own way. Sharing some photos and video clips.

Although I never met this talented actor, I’m going to miss him dearly, he was a huge part of my childhood.

Help!… It’s the Hair Bear Bunch! Was a Saturday morning cartoon, produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions in 1971 for CBS! And it was also one of my favorite cartoons.. In saying that, here’s some fun facts about this amazing cartoon! 

Did you know the Theme Song was Sung by the cast! 

Hbb

In the Wonderland Zoo,
There are certain bears who,
Stay at home every night,
Never quarrel or fight,
Ah! We don’t even bite!

So don’t yell,
Help! Help! Here come the bears,
Help! Help! Here come the bears,
Help! Help! Here come the bears,
Let’s split!

So don’t yell,
Help! Help! Here come the bears,
Help! Help! Here come the bears,
Help! Help! Here come the bears,
Let’s split!

Help! It’s the Hair Bear Bunch!
