‘Fractured Fairy Tales’


Recently we had a group of friends over for a Shabbat celebration and meal. Someone mentioned the old program from “Rocky and Bullwinkle”… “Fractured Fairy Tales.”

Well, I hadn’t thought about those cartoons for decades! And the idea flooded my heart and mind with a deluge of warm memories… sitting around the tv after school with my sisters and brother, eating a snack, listening to mom cook supper, waiting for dad to come home from work, my brother–serious about watching Rocky and Bullwinkle and demanding the best chair, and laughing at the cartoons.

Actually, “Fractured Fairy Tales” was my favorite… stories cleverly crafted with tenderhearted wisdom, American culture, and utter nonense. I loved and still love the voices… the language so properly articulated in stark contrast to the nonsensical and ridiculous story line.

I hope this takes you back to a kinder, gentler time…

    I agree. Hilarious, and mainly for the childhood memories.

    We just recently watched some of the Flintstones with our boys – better morals to the stories than the cartoons today!!
    Thanks for the memories!

    Thank you for the piece on being content. I pray that I will never desire more than God has for me in His perfect will. I am excited that we are moving soon to a peaceful neighborhood with so much potential with a nearby Kibbutz and Monastery which are used frequently by many fellowships here in Israel. Thank you for a bit of comedy that also pricks the heart.
    Blessings in Yeshua,
