    Default Bit-o-trivia..........Google\'s cheating.

    See if anyone can REMEMBER these things without Googling them.

    Timeframe is late 60\'s early 70\'s.

    What was Choo Choo Charlie associated with?

    Where would you find the Coola-nut.

    Who was Morris?

    Who were \'bama-grams\' for?

    Who rode in the \'way back machine?\'

    \"Drizzle, drazzle, druzzle, drome, time for this one to come home.\" -- Who was being sent home?

    It pleases me greatly to say thatI\'m far too young for all that. :P

    Aside: From the title, I thought this was about Google cheating at something, like falsifying data or somesuch.

    I grew up in the sticks in Canada (with only 2 channels, both Canadian) so I can only get one (even if I am old enough I should get them all). :cry:

    Morris was a freakin\' fat orange cat that gorged on 9 lives cat food.
    And guess what? I now have sattelite tv with so many channels I haven\'t counted them, and there is still almost nothing good on any of them...:drunk:

    Nothing too frightening, just a mix of commercials and cartoons.....nothing significant.

    Coola-nut is from Australia. That\'s what Google says.

    And the drizzle thing is from some turtle asking a Mr. Wizard.

    Very good! You and me are close enough in age that these were no problem for you....\'cept the ol Bam-o-Gram (that\'s probably the right spelling). Close enough on the turtle (Tutor Turtle), you knew his plea.

    I remember the shaved-head black guy (very rare back then) doing the \"un-cola nut\" commercials. He later did a James Bond bad guy part. Most wicked laugh ever...
