let's wag another tale!!

Guys, do you remember Wishbone?
That amazing children’s show that was on PBS in the mid-to-late 1990s?? I miss it!! It was the best. A little Jack Russell terrier that draws parallels between his teenage owner’s life problems and classic literature, and RE-ENACTS FAMOUS NOVELS WITH HIMSELF AS THE PROTAGONIST (costumes included). It does not get any better.
He covered A Tale of Two Cities (I cried), Phantom of the Opera, The Odyssey, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Time Machine, The Prince and the Pauper, and many many others. It was intense.
Here we have Wishbone dressed as Robin Hood!

And Romeo....
Wishbone not only affirmed my love of books, he proved that being cute and smart is possible and badass. And he had some hysterical one liners! Wishbone was the John McClane of dogs...with more education.

I saw this video on Funny or Die that is a funny remake of the trailer,

 showing Wishbone covering literature that is a little more racy... love it.
