    RE Nellie. I can see the cartoon but I can't name it! He was a Northwest Mountie. Or was Nellie his girlfriend? I thought she was Nell.

    Or am I really mixed up with my apples & oranges?
    In a word: yes.

    You are thinking along two entirely different tracks, but I'm over here on track #3

    The Royal Canadian Mountie is non-other than Dudley DoRight, who was deliciously played on the big screen by a QUITE in-his-prime ...Brandon Something, or Something Brandon. I also enjoyed him (and still do!) as TARZAN. ('Just soooo pretty,' she drooled)

    See, I was so lost in remembering the loin cloth, my font got carried away, as well.

    Where was I? Yeah, okay, so, Nell was Dudley's girlfriend. And Snidely Whiplash, remember him?

    The Nellie Belle I was referencing was the JEEP on the Roy Roger's Show, driven by some yup-yup good ol' country boy character who had a kind of perpetually in a flap-doodle over some ol' thing goin' on , y'know; but every so often wise words would come out that mouth. Oh, the actor was Pat Hingle, and I saw him once in an old movie in which he was the BAD man character, and I remember thinking, "That's not right...!"

    How I do carry on!

    Yep, Roy's horse was Trigger, and I'm sure FranEM posted Buttermilk 'cause she know Dale Evans' horse was named Buttermilk.

    No, no you didn’t. With the number of people who claimed to have known twins with these names, you would think they would be easier to find. Yet no one named Lemonjello or Orangello has ever registered with the U.S. Social Security Administration. This is an urban legend- one that many people have fallen victim to- even convincing themselves that they once knew or cared for people with this name. Yet the actual people can never be produced.
    Right you are, Double-Helix! Maybe somebody has named their pets those names, but even that's a reach.

    Arthur Treacher was an actor; during the 1940's and 1950's many of his roles were as"The Butler", who is dryly acerbic, totally dignified and witheringly sarcastic in the way that only a Brit can be. He was a butler in Mary Poppins, or maybe he was a policeman? I can't quite remember. I was more familiar, at first, with his role as the 2nd banana on The Merv Griffin Show . . . oh, dear . . . Well, my sister and my two brothers and I thought it would be fun to pile into the car and go to the drive-in movies. Mary Poppins was playing, the opening credits listed the actor's, my sister exclaimed quite loudly, Arthur Treacher?!?!?! Gah ! I'm going HOME!"
    Maybe yah hadda be there and share our 'history' with Arthur Treacher but that night we laughed hysterically.
