The Cinnamon Bear!



It's that time of year again! Very soon the adventures of Judy, Jimmy, the Crazy Quilt Dragon and the Cinnamon Bear will heard in our household! (here's a link to my original post on the show). If you want a quick synopsis of the show, here's some folks in the UK with one! The most complete site with exhaustive info, and old-timey pictures can be found here. If you want to download the shows for free, (not every radio station plays it...) go to this wonderful site, where you'll find other old radio shows like Hopalong Cassidy, the Aldrich Family and The Whistler; just click on the navigation bar to the left. There's even a local company providing Cinnamon Bear cruises. It's kind of nice that kids get the chance to take their picture with the Cinnamon Bear, just like I did in the early 70's! Now I just gotta find the pictures....

This is an interesting tradition. It was created in 1937 and there was definitely the sensibilities and mindsets from that time in there. I look forward to listening to it again.

Always a fun adventure, but it must be taken in one dose per day.

Thanks for the links.

Hopalong Cassidy - now you're talkin' my generation. (uh-oh, do I want to admit that?).

When I was a kid, none of us ever wanted to see Santa, but the Cinnamon Bear!! It was great. He'd give us his likeness as a cookie, and then we'd bite off his head and arms and legs, before devouring his dismembered corpse......

Wait. Nevermind.

Old Timey Transformers.
I wonder if the bear turns into a giant robot or a car.
