Weekly Match-Up; Hanna Barbera

ok... so I apologize for not posting this yesterday...

oh, and before I present the match-up.... if you have a job that doesn't like you looking at porn, I would suggest that you NOT do an MSN search on Hanna Barbara.... as one slight letter off from the intended hanna barbEra will lead you into a cartoon porn link-o-rama.... And forget about just hitting the 'back' button.... they just take you to real porn from there. WTF people.... I'M LOOKING FOR MY CHILDHOOD CARTOONS!!!!!


anyways--- so now that I've been able to find what I was REALLY looking for.... I bring you this week's match-up.

oh, and for those of you that are newer to my site, and are not used to shit-filled cheerios being thrown at you in my blog.... (inside joke) my weekly match-up is simple. of the two contenders I present... who would kick who's ass???

Each week I TRY to find two contenders that are somewhat matched... be it physically, mentally, benevolently, or somewhat equal in their LACK of anything.... These contenders are not always living and aren't always human.... but the challenge remains.... if these two get in a ring... who, in your opinion, will be the last one standing? It's always fun when you tell us why... but don't feel you have to have a deep reason. I recognize that sometimes you just go with your gut, and that's that.

Originally I was going to do something dad-inspired for this week, but all of the things I was thinking of were pretty weak. ......I needed something stronger. ..........hmmmm... stronger..... maybe super-heros??? yeah... that could work... but not just ANY superheros..... we need to bust out the irregulars, folks!


so this week.... in a special throw-back edition of the match-up... I give you:


THE GREAT GRAPE APE




vs


HONG KONG PHOOEY



Some of you youngin's may not even remember these two cats, but if you're my age (+ or - a few years) and you don't start talking like grape ape or saying "honnnnnng-konnnnnng-phooooooooooooeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey!!!" after seeing their pictures.... you might want to check your pulse.


So there you have it.... who will win the title of Champion of the Under-Accomplished Cartoons??? No hints from me on this one... I want to see where my real dogs at. whup whup.



so DING DING.... let the battle begin!

Hong Kong Phooey's kung fu is stronger than Grape Ape's. He would totally open a filing cabinet of whoop ass on that punk ape. Besides, he's the number one super guy. My vote is that Hong Kong Phooey would drop Grape Ape in a mere 3 rounds.

Christi said...

Grape Ape will crush him...Grape Ape, Grape Ape, Grape Ape...

Jewl said...

I have to vote for Gape Ape because he could just crush Hong Kong Phooey while Phooey is reading his Karate book trying to figure out what moves to do... Grape Ape Grape Ape

Angela said...

Hong Kong Phooey was my FAVORITE cartoon when I was little. He will kick some grape ass!

Melissa said...

Hong Kong Phooey

CheekyMoo said...

I say Hong Kong Phooey, cause I never really liked Grape Ape anyway and it's just more ways for me to tell him, screw you ape.

Pieces of Me said...

Hong Kong phoooooooooooooooooooooooey!!! woohooo no question!

ThoughtsGalore said...

Hong Kong Phooey, of course. You know you can find all those on Boom.

My favorite was always Wally Gator.

'Wally Gator was the swing alligator in the swamp...See ya later Wally Gator.' Yes..I know...such a geek.

Are you *kidding* me? The fight will go something like this: Grape Ape comes by screaming that insipid "Grape Ape!" battle cry of his like Timmy from South Park. Hong Kong steps up with his pattented reverse-back-kick-tripple-hit, which he screws up and lands flat on his back. The ape tries to jump on him, but the faithful sidekick pulls Phooey out of the way just in time. Fed up with the incessant Grape Ape screaming his own name as well as Hong Kong's stupid antics, the little cat pulls out an Uzi, finishing them both off. Thus the victory goes (post-mortem and by default) to Phooey, since his sidekick did the deed.

I am simply in awe of nick's analysis. I don't think even I, keeper of the tainted Cheerios, could come back with a better reply.
I concur that the martial canine would emerge victorious, albeit by his sidekicked aid.

Also note: I must also agree with cheeky's submission in that this yet one more way of flipping off the purple monkey.

hong kong phooey forever!!!!!

Susie said...

I fling crap-laden Cheerios into the ring and pick Hong Kong Phoooey! I won't go into my DEEP CONNECTION with the dog and my HEARTFELT DISLIKE for the ape, but rest assured there is a wicked long and totally boring story I'm keeping from you regarding my selection and my teen angst memories.

Ehhhhmmmm....

I'm friggin clueless on BOTH of these. Either I'm stuck in a timewarp or something just flew over my head cuz I don't remember either one of them. So I'm gonna be a bandwagon chick this week & say HONG KONG PHOOEY. Oy. Dunno what I just voted for...

M~

Hong Kong definetely! What's this interview thing you're talking about?? Did I miss that post??

Chief Slacker said...

unless somehow Phooey gets scaled up about 10x, he's got no chance against the Great Grape Ape. The amount of force it would take for Phooey to actually know Grape Ape over with one kick would just end up breaking himself. The ultimate proof of who would win is this though... which of them has a drink named after them? That's right, Grape Ape! Better come with two straws too!

I think Hong Kong Phooey could do a round house kick, catching Grape Ape in the balls and taking him out before he even gets the chance to fling poo.
