Someone earlier posted a topic about Schoolhouse Rock and it reminded me of a mini-show that always came on during commercials every Saturday morning cartoon time.

It was this little yellow dude that wore a tophat and cane. He would sing this song about cheese - "HUNGRY FOR A HUNKA,,,, HUNGRY FOR A HUNK -O- CHEESE!!!"

Anyone remember that mini-show?

    If you do a search for PSA, you'll find an old post with a link that has several of those old animated PSA's.

          I thought it was called "time for timer", but I could be wrong. I remember Zak "Don't pout check it out, Zaks gonna show you what works about."

            Mondoman thanks for that link! Brought back a lotta of memories.
            Two questions
            1. Anyone know who sung the song for Beans and Rice? I hear that guy on a lot of the PSAs from that time.

            2. Just what the hell is Timer? He looks like a deformed orange!

              I have always been creeped out by those little white Brachs candies. Now I know why. That stuff he was riding to the stomach looks just like them.

              Since that mystery is solved, I'm going to make some sunshine on a stick.

                1. I don't know the name, but he's the conductor on Conjunction Junction and he wa an older man who taught Johnny Bravo about picking up ladies.

                2. In the long lost last episode of "Time for Timer" it is revealed that timer is a balled up tapeworm, hence his desire to teach you to eat a lot of good snacks between meals.
