Cartoon Earworm

I've had an earworm for the last few days - not of a song, but a famous line from a cartoon character. I don't know why, I haven't seen it in years, or heard anyone say it in months, but it showed up one morning and I'm having a hard time shaking it. So, the best way to get rid of it is to share it with someone else. And that's what I'm doing.

Snagglepuss' "heavens to murgatroid"

There's a clip here of one of the cartoons in which he says this - around the 4:30 mark.

I used to watch the Hanna Barbara cartoon mornings when I was a kid, though I know I'm too young for the Snagglepuss era. Even better are the references on Who's Line is it Anyway (US version). Chip Heston does a great impression.

Does this happen to anyone else? Where you get quote earworms? Or where they're in a specific voice? Obviously, it's not enough to just be thinking 'heavens to murgatroid' it's the fact that it's in Snagglepuss' voice every time makes it extra annoying.

First of all, the term "earworm" is absolutely awesome.

Secondly, Whose Line... is made from all kinds of epicness.

Third, yes, but mine is usually some line from Spongebob. (I place the blame squarely on my little ones, LOL)
