Grape Ape Cookie

Grape Ape Cookie

This marvelous Grape Ape Cookie was made by Cookie Crush By Roni. This cookie brings a big smile to my face. I used to watch The Great Grape Ape show when I was a kid and hadn’t thought about the character in years.

This great cookie features Beegle Beagle driving his van. The Grape Ape, who is a giant purple gorilla with a green vest, hat, and bowtie, is hunched down and riding on top of the van.

The last time I saw the Great Grape Ape Show was in reruns on Cartoon Network in the late 80s or early 90s. So for this post, I had to check out Wikipedia to make sure I had my names and facts correct. There were two things I completely forgotten about.

First, when the Great Grape Ape show premiered, it was originally the Tom and Jerry / Grape Ape Show. After that it was the Tom and Jerry / Grape Ape / Mumbly Show. It wasn’t until 1978 that it became the Great Grape Ape Show. As I’ve mentioned in the past, I’m a fan of Tom and Jerry, so I’m surprise that I don’t associate the two series with each other.

Second, the Grape Ape also appeared as a member of “The Yogi Yahooeys” team on Scooby’s All-Star Laff-A-Lympics / Scooby’s All-Stars. (I can’t believe that this is the 2nd time this month I’ve mentioned The Yogi Yahooeys.) Hanna-Barbera made my favorite cartoons as a kid. I always enjoyed shows like Laff-A-Lympics because they used characters from a bunch of cartoon series.

These cookies are perfect for any fully stocked pic-a-nic basket. These would also be a perfect gift for someone you know who is smarter than the average bear.

When I was a kid, Hanna-Barbera cartoons were my favorites. I loved the Flintstones, Jetsons, Scooby-Doo  and their various Saturday morning cartoons. Yogi Bear was extremely popular on Saturday morning. How popular was he? On Laff-A-Lypics, he had has own team –  The Yogi Yahooeys. What was really odd about Yogi’s popularity was that the one place you rarely ever saw Yogi was in his own cartoons.

When our kids were born, I purchased boxed sets of the Huckleberry Hound and Yogi Bear series and we watched them all the time. Yogi’s cartoons are wonderful and I wish I’d seen more of them as a kid. I really enjoy his rivalry with Ranger Smith and his interactions with Boo-Boo and Cindy Bear.

I really enjoyed watching the Broadway musical Hamilton when it was released on Disney Plus.  

These cookies are nice because they are all in a tan brown of old style paper. They have some of the key quotes from the musical done in a nice stylized format.

Some of the cookies look like a parchment scroll and others look like a silhouette with words on top.

Others have a musical score in the background with the Hamilton logo on top.

The main cookie has a quote by Hamilton and the Hamilton logo.

The logos stand out against the parchment colored cookies.

Munsters Cookie

This Herman Munster Cookie makes me smile. I can’t decide what I like more – the vintage television set, Herman, or that the picture looks a just a little out of focus and grainy. This marvelous cookie was made by Cookie Ninja for the Childhood TV Show Cookie Collaboration.

 

Herman Munster Cookie

The television and the image on it are separate cookies. This duo-tone painting of Herman Munster is absolutely wonderful.  I like how the image of Herman is clear while the background and bats look a little fuzzy. It really makes it look like this was being watched on an old television set.

 

Vintage Television Cookie

This vintage television is so cute. It has picture tube, VHF and UHF nobs, and a speaker. The only thing missing is rabbit ears. This wonderful cookie set brings back happy childhood memories.
