Middlebrow has a post about Hong Kong Phooey, number one super guy. My comment on his question about remembering HKP, was, and I approximate, "Who the hell could forget Hong Kong Phooey? It was Scatman Crothers!" For God's sake! Scatman!

Has Scatman been forgotten? Dear God, say it ain't so?

Scatman! You made so much of my childhood possible what with your multiple appearances on daytime TV and, of course, the fact that you were Hong Kong Phooey! Even I knew that at a tender age.

Scatman also singularly saved Kubrick's The Shining from near deadly bland dullness: "You don't need to know nothing about room two two seven!"

All that and when he arrived to save the day he was greeted with an ax to the chest.

Enough said.
