Lyndon Johnson is re-elected to the presidency by a landslide,.
the New York World's Fair introduces a bright new future,.
and after five scintillating years on the air...
The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show is abruptly cancelled.
Uh, sorry about that, boys.
A lot has changed in 35 years.
Velcro has replaced the zipper.
Sneakers have lights on them.
The Cold War is over.
And The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show...
is still cancelled.
Frostbite Falls, Minnesota,
once the beloved home of Rocky and Bullwinkle,
had been a thriving cartoon town.
Now it was crippled by years of reruns.
The beautiful Frostbite Falls Forest...
The once majestic falls above Veronica Lake...
While the narrator... that's me...
down on his luck and out of a job,
was forced to move in with his mother
where he was reduced to narrating
the events of his own life.
"With the speed and dexterity
astonishing in a woman of her advancing years,
Mother bastes the chicken, tosses the salad,
and mashes the potatoes. "
Oh, sonny, shut up!
And in a little house at the top of a stump forest,
Rocky and Bullwinkle themselves,
were forced to subsist on ever-diminishing residual checks
from reruns of their old show.
World famous television stars
whose adventures once took them all over the globe,
now their exploits were just a memory.
Yes, it was a melancholy time indeed.
