Plunk your magic twanger froggy!

    Who will ever forget those words and what they mean:

    "Plunk your magic twanger froggy!"

    OK - So just what do they mean?

    Let us set the stage - Andy's stage so to speak.

Froggy lived in a big grandfather clock and Andy Devine would coax him to come out.
"Plunk your magic twanger froggy!" Andy would say and suddenly in a cloud of smoke - Froggy would appear!
Froggy was known as 'Froggy the Gremlin' because he had this habit of taunting Andy to the amusement of the audience.

Froggy would cause Andy and his varied guests to 'miss-speak' years before politicians invented that word.
As they tried to lecture or explain he would complete their sentences for them and they would mindlessly follow along.
Embarrassed by what they had said, they would try to correct themselves as Froggy tripped them up again.
They sounded even more foolish and the kids loved it. | Hot Links to
