Cat Stevens & The Wonderpets (not together, though that'd be AWESOME!)

These two items were left over from Sunday. I just wanted to make sure that I covered them because you need to know.

Cat Stevens. I had no sooner gotten the fact that I didn't like Cat Stevens out of my fingertips on Sunday than I watched CBS Sunday Morning and who was on it but the illustrious CAT STEVENS. I learned that he is quite the gentle soul and that I think I actually really like his voice. I don't think that my head would explode if I had to hear "Morning Has Broken" one more time, as I once did. Life is funny.

And now for my exaltation of The Wonder Pets. I LOVE this show. The Child loves it and prior to its coming on, he goes around saying, "Pets, pets, pets." He is absolutely mesmerized by them, as am I. If you haven't had the pleasure, three little animals who by day are pets in a classroom, do great feats of wonder after the school bell rings. Linny, the hamster; Tuck, the turtle; and Ming-Ming, the duck use teamwork to save a baby animal in peril. It has a tinge of the PC business going on, but nothing I can't stand. They're so darned cute. I told my sister I was gonna DVR it for The Child, but I was actually doing it for myself!!! It's done in a little operetta style kind of like what Mister Rogers used to do in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. Check them out. They are awesome. When Ming-Ming said things were "twagic," I just about lost it.

O.k. as we are t.v. illiterate around here, I have only a slight concept of Wonder Pets. However, my girl likes them also, as she sees it at the "no, no, baby". (the gym) I think she says some little phrase connected with it, but I don't have a clue, as I am illiterate.

Wonder Pets, Wonder Pets we're on our way, to help a baby (insert baby animal name here) and save the day. We're not too big and we're not too tough, but if we stick together we've got the right stuff. Go Wonder Pets!

That is the song they sing. I don't know of any little phrases, but the show kicks hiney!
