Bug huntin' for fun and profit

Posted: Wednesday, February 04, 2009 by Travis Cody in

On Saturday we had a huge fly in the house. Mr Tucker did the silly dance all over the place as he tried to catch it. We silly danced right along with him, until finally we swatted the beast.

Not Mr Tucker! We swatted the fly!

Anyway, shortly after this adventure, the phrase "I'm bug huntin'" popped into my head and I had to see if the video clip was on youtube.

Sure enough! I found it! This is Spanky from Little Rascals.

    Wow, that brought back memories. When I was a kid they showed Little Rascals in the morning before we went to school. So after we'd get up we'd be watching them waiting to get ready to go to school.

  1. Spanky had such a kyoot laugh!

    I use to love Petey! I wonder if Pit Bulls had a bad rap back then?

  1. Dana says:

    Hehe! That was cute! I can just see you trying to swat that fly too!

  1. Anndi says:

    Giggles make me smile!

  1. Julie says:

    That was too fun! I rarely watched The Little Rascals but I really enjoyed this clip. The dog's ears cracked me up!

  1. I'm one of those folks who never watched the little rascals.

  1. Kanani says:

    I'm sure Mr. Tucker loved doing the silly dance. My cat showed up the other day with a lizard in his mouth! It was his first (I think) and he seemed very proud!

  1. Akelamalu says:

    I've never heard of Little Rascals which is a shame cos I really enjoyed that clip! :)

  1. Now that brought back a memory or two =)

  1. Cherie says:

    It's a sign! I don't care what the groundhogs say. When the flies start coming back to life to entertain the cat, spring's on it's way! :)

    John: I used to watch too, but I wasn't really much of a fan. I did like this one a lot though.

    WT4W: I think Petey proves that you can train the breed for just about anything.

    Dana: LOL!

    Turn: Hilarious eh?

    Ann: They do!

    Julie: Baby Spanky and Petey were usually good for laughs.

    Charles: I didn't go out of my way, but I usually wouldn't turn it off if I came across it.

    Kanani: He does a fabulous silly dance...almost better than me!

    Akelamalu: Slapstick with kids!

    Noe Noe: Glad to hear it! And welcome!

    Cherie: But I don't want the spiders to come back early!

  1. Mo says:

    we needed a video of mr. tucker and the fly!

  1. Cherie says:

    No, spiders are strictly OUT! :) You mean that you haven't trained Mr. Tucker to hunt them for you? ;)

  1. Spanky....hadn't thought of Spanky in years. I was not a Spanky fan. Long weird story I will never tell.


  1. That does indeed bring back memories. Well done tracking that down to go with your story.

  1. OMG...does THAT bring back memories!

  1. Travis says:

    Mo: Now I can do short videos on my camera. But I never think of it when he's doing funny stuff.

    Cherie: Mr Tucker is as afraid of them as I am!

    Mimi: I enjoyed baby Spanky, but not so much as he got older.

    Southern: I was determined. And then when I found it, I had to share it.

    Lana: I know!

    Does your kitty make that "skittery" noise to try and attract the fly?
