Just forget the words and sing along

Wow. This high speed Internet is a real mixed blessing. I come down to my room with the intention of doing some brilliant writing, but instead I wind up mindlessly surfing. Just ruined a perfectly good afternoon.

Anyway, today's useless trivia fact from Wikipedia:

We all know that The Honeymooners was largly the inspiration for The Flintstones. In fact, lots of Hanna-Barberra characters drew their inspiration from live-action celebraties. Ever wonder what The Jetsons was based on? The Jetsons was largly inspired by the Blondie films of the 1940s. In fact, the actress who played Blondie, Penny Singleton, was the voice of Jane Jetson.

And yes, the Blondie films were based on the comic strip of the same name.
