Who here remember Footrot Flat

As a kid growing up in Australia this little cartoon strip in most the newspapers gave me much joy

The dog, and of cause horse the mad cat,

Who remembers this Murry Ball New Zealand classic

Re: Who here remember Footrot Flat

Yay, I do, but mostly because I was in Aus when the film came out

Remember that the film had to be recoloured because it was done in Australia and they didn't do it green enough for New Zealand.

There are several more on Youtube - along with more recent renditions of Dave Dobbyn singing the songs - I love his voice.

Re: Who here remember Footrot Flat

Doesn't this show up? Here it is without the youtube tags:



(Genuine question - am I doing something wrong, it doesn't seem to show up on my screen but I can see others' youtubes)


*Edit: answered. Just post the thread without using the advanced settings given. *rolley eyes*

I used to work as a podiatrist, it sounds like a condition my patients could have had .
