Angoori Angoori!

Since we haven't done one of these in a while, this post is in in honor of another childhood hobby, friend, diversion; The Grape Ape. Translated as "Gooril Angoori", most Iranian kids have been entertained by the antics of a 40 feet gorilla and his buddy Beegle Beagle.

William Hanna and Joseph Barbera cartoons were all big in Iran, Particularly Tom & Jerry and their friends, including Grape Ape and Mumbly. There was also Quick Draw McGraw, The Flintstones (translated as Asre-Hajar or "Stone Age"), The Yogi Bear Show and Scooby Doo.

Good memories!

Great memories of those times! There was a really funny show that we had, there were 2 stupid guys who would try to fix stuff but they always ended up making mess instead i cant remember its name. does anyone know what it is called? (it wasn't animation, they had a truck too, and big nose :)
if you know what they are called send me email at NIMA82 at yahoo.com

Thanks,
