Thank you all for entering our little contest!
The question you had to answer was:
Two cartoon sounds were used in this post. Wherefrom do these sounds originate?
- “Snikt!” is the sound Wolverine (from X-men) makes.
- “Cowabunga” is an exclamatory yell of surprise and anger used by Chief Thunderthud in the 1950s kids show Howdy Doody.
And we only had ONE right answer! This blew us away!
HOWEVER, dear Optimists, we noticed that the question could be somewhat missleading and perhaps made people believe that they had to guess in what cartoon the sound “Cowabunga” was first used in. And that, darling readers, was indeed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! (and later Peanuts).
