Tricks & Treats 09: Snooping At The Shindig

Back in the 60s, Hanna Barberra released a series of records for children featuring their roster of cartoon characters in all new adventures and telling stories. I have always loved these records and now that I have a child of my own, they are in regular rotation during feeding time. The other day, I happened to put one on that I had long forgotten about featuring the characters Super Snooper and Blabber Mouth. These characters were part of the lesser known crew of HB animation and were featured during segments of Quick Draw McGraw. They are a pair of cat and mouse detectives both voiced by the incomprable, Daws Butler. Snooper is more or less the one in command whenever the pair takes on a case while Blabber Mouse follows whatever orders Snooper gives him. For this album, Super Snooper and Blabbermouth investigate a party is going on at a house occupied by The Gruesome Family (yes, the ones from The Flintstones). Also in attendance are Dracula, Frankenstein, the Mummy and the Wolf Man. It's a great story and fits perfectly in with our Halloween countdown! Here is "Monster Shindig With Super Snooper and Blabber Mouse". Enjoy!

Nice Post Dartman. I had this on vinyl years ago and drove my parents mad by playing it day and night. I can still recite most of it my rote!

It's interesting to note that much of the music on this LP is by former Three Dog Night fronman Danny Hutton.
