    I had forgotten that the father of Iowa's Head Basketball Coach was actually on the show.

    Art Linkletter sent them Rusty! Time for the dog-washing!

    I hate that I'm old and jaded, and take things like "I'll get just as wet from his tongue" out of context.

    Other than that, it's still awesome.



    What do you mean, "Flash Gordon approaching"?

    It's hard to explain why Floppy is such a beloved character in Central Iowa - except about a generation of us grew up with him. Whether he visited a Camp Fire or Cub Scout group - or we just watched Duane Ellot on TV, Floppy had a large following over a long amount of time.

    It's one of those "take me back" moments when everything was not necessarily good or bad - but it was simple.

    Thank you WHO for making a part of the past remembered again.

    I didn't watch the show, but Floppy was a big part of our lives as we were growing up. In fact, our daughter got to go on stage with him and Duane and tell a joke (What's big and red and eats rocks? of course) the last time the pair was at the Iowa State Fair. Duane died several months later, and Floppy eventually went to the State Historical Museum.
