    I wasn’t familiar with the Meeko cartoons. Guess I’m from the wrong generation. 😥

    Rocky is so clever, as raccoons are wont to be. This was my fave…Thanks for the chuckle.

    Meeko does look disgusted, doesn’t he?

    Aha, another Rocky. Shows who among us can remember old Beatles tunes.
    Meeko, however, is new to me. Do I remember you saying your granddaughter is about 10?

    I loved that movie! One of the best things about having little ones was watching the Disney animated films. LOL My daughter’s fave is Beauty and the Beast. She’s 24 now, but it’s still one of her favorite movies!
