If you're disappointed that this entry doesn't have anything (much) to do with spanking, you can blame Larken, and take her right over your lap!
For 'twas she who put me in mind of Cecil the Sea-Sick Sea-Serpent at this earlier post, and I thought perhaps you'd like to chillax after a hard Monday with a cold beverage and some chuckles, found at the YouTube link below.
"Time For Beany!" was a brilliant, Emmy-winning "kids' show" on KTLA, Los Angeles in the late 50's. Its fans included, no kidding, Harpo Marx and Albert Einstein!
It was the brainchild of Bob Clampett, animator, writer, director, and one of the several guys at Warner Brothers who developed Bugs Bunny!
His star performers were Daws Butler and Stan Freberg!
You may not recognize Daws' name, but you've enjoyed his performances thousands of times; he was the actor who voiced countless cartoon creations, especially at Hanna Barbera. His characters included Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Cap'n Crunch, Quick Draw Magraw, Elroy Jetson, Aesops's son on the "Bullwinkle" show, Various Bad Guys, and Three Gazillion more. Note that Huckleberry Hound is pretty much the same voice Daws had used earlier for the Wolf (!!) in the MGM Droopy cartoons!
Besides voice acting, Stan Freberg is a humorist, writer of renown, and a legendary parodist. He won awards for his TV commercials and magazine ads. Enter his name in the YouTube search and enjoy!
Eventually the live puppet show ran its course, but a short time later, Beany and company reappeared in animated cartoon form.
So, here for your enjoyment is one of my faves, featuring a jungle beatnik, Go Man Van Gogh.

(You don't have to get the topical 60's jokes to giggle, but if you do, good for you!)
Oh, here's a confession: I "borrowed" one of Bob's jokes for a Halloween WolfieToon at "Discipline and Desire!" At the end of one of the Beany and Cecil cartoons (as I recall from childhood) the Mad Doctor who owns a haunted castle our heroes had gone into spanks the Invisible Man for creating havoc. Invisible Man is only wearing his hat, sunglasses, gloves and boots. I changed that to the Invisible Woman, with her skirt up over her invisible behind. :-D Now, I might be mis-remembering, and got that gag from some other show, but it does seem very Clampett!
