Um...nobody check headers anymore? He means that Hanna-Barbera el presidente
Fred Seibert took away the Tremblays' box of crayons and discarded everything
but chartreuse (that's 'purple' between you and me) and proceeded to scribble
all over the facade of 3400 Cahuenga Blvd. until it looked for all the world like
a New Orleans whorehouse (if you don't know what that is, *please* don't
ask your parents, or Senator Exon will put me on his Christmas Card list). It seems
that the decision for a new colour was between the Blue and the Grey (Ted favouring
"the Grey" for some odd reason), and Seibert compromised by mixing the two
and adding a little red ink of his own (man, I'm *nasty* when I want to be, huh?)

Anyway, Ted didn't like the colour - and neither did H-B co-founder Joe
Barbera, who described the pastel travesty as:

"People drive by on the street and do a 'Kramer' -style shock-take!"
 (delivered while trying his best at emulating same)

Marc's efforts appreciated by one and all even if they don't come to fruition.
Listmembers might try getting any kind of latitude from a WBSS or Disney
Store; that is, unless you've already *got* windmills to tilt at.

Lesson to be learned: you can never tell who lurks behind the skirting boards
of a public forum...maybe Jane reads Ted to sleep every night with katmail?
