Wherever there is danger …

Look what reader Rick S. made for me:

Now we need some theme music.  I’m thinking a funeral dirge would be fitting.

    Noelle: “Opossum” refers to the European possum, notably those found in Ireland.

    Maybe The Captain and Tennille can rework Muskrat Love.

    Theme music: Something heroic like the Superman theme, but in a minor key.

    The theme has gotta be something along the lines of “Mighty Mouse”….you remember, I know you do ” Here he comes to save the day….. Mighty Mouse is on the way…” Ta da, ta da, ta da, can’t recall the rest.

    Are you aware of the (terrible) mid-90s video game “Awesome Possum Kicks Dr. Machino’s Butt” ? It was a total ripoff of Sonic the Hedgehog, but the Possum in question was trying to save the environment (I guess that was the “twist).


    My roommate at the time bought it for like $2. It was really terrible. Did I mention the terrible?
