It's the ever lovely Tuolemne Meadow in Yosemite! Thanks for finding this great photo.

You know who did this I'll bet, even if you don't know this particular building. I have a t-shirt made of the original drawing for one of his other buildings, and it's basically a scribble. Folks tend to love or hate his work...not too much middle ground.

And speaking of things volcanic - and in keeping with the earlier National Park posting - you'll find a zillion images of this famous pool. Can you locate this one?

Keeping on the park theme, another easy one. This is a rather scary climb, I never completed it. I think I will try the scooter trail next visit to Yosemite.

But that part of the country has other charms. Traffic is still crazy though. You'll need to know the name of this part of town to find the image.

(They don't let you park your scooters on the lawn, though.)

Looks like that last one was not hard enough
(okay, I didn't think you could trace it through the location, but I was wrong)

Anyway, I was in the middle of reading today's NYTimes article on South Beach, so yours wasn't very hard either

No hints needed, just didn't have time to find it earlier. The movie is The Birdcage. Dan Futterman, hands over his face, Hank Azaria as the wonderful Agador Spartacus.

One of the gentlemen in the photo above went on to play a famous executive in a Broadway play. The play altered real events substantially to make for better drama, and at least one huffy critic compared it to acting out a science fair project. (His was a minority voice though.)

Lest you think this one is too difficult to find if you don't know the name of the play or the character, this image is at the bottom of page 2 of GIS if you just enter the first and last name of the actor and state "what kind" of play it was....and I'm not talking "drama" or "comedy." (And that answer it included above too.)

Hank Azaria in The Farnsworth Invention. I was not familiar with this play until this post. I think he gives lectures on Piaggio products when not on Broadway.

Wiki says: This gentleman was an American scientist, botanist, educator, and inventor whose studies and teaching revolutionized agriculture in the Southern United States. His fame is based on his research into and promotion of alternative crops to cotton, such as peanuts and sweet potatoes. His important accomplishments also included improvement of racial relations, mentoring children, poetry, painting, and religion. He served as an example of the importance of hard work, a positive attitude, and a good education. Think peanuts. (without salmonella)

Another hint:

(not that I ever saw it that way)

There had been three of them Bob Keeshan was the first and the character didn't speak until the very end of the final episode.

What a minute, I've lost the narrative thread with the tag photos. Bob Keeshan of Captain Kangaroo fame was indeed the original Clarabell on the Howdy Doody show, but Bunny is from Capt. Kangaroo and I thought our tag from messy was Clarabell.

I'm so confused!

So here's the tag for messy's Clarabell saying goodbye, and the one with the Captain and Moose for G Bowman.

I don't remember the horse having a name, but Crusader worked with Rags the Tiger (Ragland T. Tiger), and the villain was Dudley Nightshade.

One of the guys behind this - Jay Ward - went on to create Rocky and Bullwinkle.

I'll let one of the "youngsters" on the list grab Andy Kaufman's favorite mouse.

Back to cartoon land.

If you're of a certain age, you have an almost irresistable urge to ask people with Russian accents to say those stirring words: "Moose and Squirrel."
