:: Hansel & Gretel ::
I figured with so many of you likely to have hangovers from the raging MLK Day parties you probably attended, you might appreciate some lighter fare. This album says 1977, but it sounds pretty 60's to me. Even though the regular series ended in 1966, The Flintstones have been a part of many childhoods since because of their practically perpetual afterlife in syndication. There's been lots of not-really-Flintstones stuff too, and this falls under that category, although they do have the voices of Mel Blanc and Alan Reed here. Does anybody else find themselves typing Flinstones instead of Flintstones? I can't freaking STOP.
The different take on the Hansel & Gretel tale is kept fairly amusing, but I'm just putting up a little of it so you can get the feel of what they were doing, which is not unlike the actual show: entertainment mostly for kids, but with enough mature humor to keep the older folks chuckling as well. The three songs are pretty groovy; silly light rock n' roll fare not too different from the music you might hear on the shows. Nothing as awesome as The Wayouts, but then again what is?
