It's the Monday before Halloween! 4 Questions to test your "oo ee oo ah ah . . ."

Question #1 - Do you remember Saturday morning cartoons before the Cartoon Network?
Question #2 - Do you remember watching Scooby-Doo before he made it big in the movies and was a mere TV star?
Question #3 - Who originally sang "The Witch Doctor"?
Question #4 - Did you own an Alvin and the Chipmunks Album when albums were actually albums made of vinyl?

#1 - Crusader Rabbit made television history on August 1, 1950 at 6pm on KNBH (NBC) in Los Angeles when it became the first cartoon expressly made for television to be broadcast.
#2 - Cartoons have a long history, but Scooby-Doo started in 1969, long before the Cartoon Network arrived in the US in 1992.
#3 - The song declaring, "Oo ee oo ah ah ting tang walla walla bing bang," was written and performed in 1958 by Ross Bagdasarian, Sr. under the name David Seville. (Did you own the 45? * )
#4 - Alvin and the Chipmunks is the animated music group created by Ross Bagdasarian, Sr., popularly known as David Seville (yes, of "The Witch Doctor" fame!) in 1958. Alvin and the Chipmunks recorded "The Witch Doctor" in 1960. Ross Bagdasarian, Jr. has carried on the Chipmunks journey since 1972.

* Bonus Question - Do you know what a 45 is?
