    Can’t beat the classics.

    I can actually hear Mel Blanc’s voice doing the announcing. Thank you, Mr. Scancarelli!

    And to think that Slim has a clue! I’m impressed.

    As a little kid I didn’t know that Cucamonga was a real place.

    Hey, I got it instantly, and I’m 14 years younger than Clovia. I read that they did that gag over and over again, drawing out the pause longer and longer. Finally, they did one where the announcement was at the beginning of the show. Blanc did the “Anaheim, Azusa, and Cuc…” and then the whole rest of the episode played out before he did the “…amonga!” at the very end.

    Look again. Axe-grinder knew. You missed the pun.

    He knew, he said “Blanc”, not blank.
    PS: and it was on TV, too.

    In the Benny show, it was a train announcement. I think Phil Harris had at least one episode where the announcement was used. It brought back some good memories.
