Liner Notes: 

I wanted to do something different so I went retro into the childhood memory banks to come up with this one.

Here's a link below in case anyone is unfamiiar with the cartoon.

I envision this sung in a rap style.

Thanks to Corinne for hosting the skirmish and for the theme.

Lyrics: 

Laff A-Lympics

Once upon a time
There was a TV show
Where Scooby doobie do and friends
Hosted ya know
Team Scooby had Thelma, Daffney
And more
It was a half hour of fun
That was in store

The Laff A-Lympics was a cartoon
Some may remember as a child
Where Hanna Barbera characters
Made the kiddies go wild
Excitement
Enthusiasism
Glued to the set
Every Saturday morning
Without a sweat

And two other teams
Would compete on the show
Against team Scooby and others
Like athlete pros
There were the "Yogi Yahooeys"
Oh yes!
And of course the "Really Rotten's "
Who were a mess

The Laff A-Lympics was a cartoon
Some may remember as a child
Where Hanna Barbera characters
Made the kiddies go wild
Excitement
Enthusiasism
Glued to the set
Every Saturday morning
Without a sweat

And every Saturday was on a new location
Animated on the screen across our great big nation

The Laff A-Lympics was a cartoon
Some may remember as a child
Where Hanna Barbera characters
Made the kiddies go wild
Excitement
Enthusiasism
Glued to the set
Every Saturday morning
Without a sweat

I remember that show! These are fun lyrics that bring me back, and I bet they would make for an excellent rap song for kids if it's ever recorded (and, um, if any kids actually still remember any of the Hanna Barbera characters, other than maybe Scooby Doo...).

Never saw this show as I grew up without TV which is good and bad. Now as an adult I watch cartoons more and appreciate the humor. Good way to lighten up and laugh. Thanks for the reminder.

Definitely love me some Scoob & Shaggy! I can feel the rap rhythm to your lyric and reading it brought a smile to my face.

So fun - gives me a nice nostalgia rush, on a day when I started by reading bad headlines. Super rhyming!

I like this fun and cute idea for a rap song! I'm too young to know this show, but it sounds cute and I think anyone who did watch it would get a great blast of happy nostalgia from it. Nice work.
