Heavens to Murgatroyd!

November 20th, 2014

Bert Lahr is best known for playing the Cowardly Lion (video) in The Wizard of Oz, but he was also associated with another big cat: Hanna-Barbera's Snagglepuss, a seeming rip-off of Lahr whose famous catch phrase — "Heavens to Murgatroyd!" (video) — was first spoken by Lahr in the 1944 movie Meet the People.

    The lion is perfect! Is it a permanent part of the headstone or just perched there?
