Throwback Thursday Trivia Question from Yesterday

What is the name of this cartoon sidekick?

       Baba Looey                                                      Source

Baba Looey is a fictional anthropomorphic Mexican burro that appeared in The Quick Draw McGraw Show. He is deputy and best friend to Sheriff Quick Draw McGraw. He was voiced by Daws Butler.

Baba Looey is Quick Draw McGraw's sidekick. He is brown, has long ears, wears a sombrero, and speaks with a thick Mexican accent. He is often seen hanging around with Quick Draw and helps him catch bad guys.

Baba Looey is often portrayed as the more thoughtful half of the duo. At times realizing some detail about a given situation, Baba Looey tries desperately to caution Quick Draw of a trap or other danger, before Quick Draw charges headlong into the fray without listening or giving consideration to his surroundings.

Gary Dell'Abate, the executive producer of The Howard Stern Show, received his nickname from his mispronunciation of Baba Looey's name. On July 26, 1990, Gary mistakenly called Baba Looey "Baba Booey" during a discussion of original cartoon cels, saying that he was thinking about getting "Quickdraw McGraw and Baba Booey" cels next.

The name is a parody of "Babalu", a traditional Cuban song made popular in the United States by Desi Arnaz.        Source

Alan J was first and correct with:
   Baba Looey.

Adam answered:
   Baba Looey

Marian said:
   Speedy Gonzales??

Kevin K. in Washington, DC responded:
   That cartoon burro is Baba Looey, sidekick to Quick Draw McGraw. He had a "Spanish" accent, and his name seems to be a reference to the signature song of Dezi Arnaz, "Babalu".

Dale of Diamond Springs, Norfallcali answered:
   Baba Looey and his mentor Quick Draw. Some Quickdraw humor:

  What about this Trey Gowdy prick? Watched some of the Hillary witch hunt this morning. Unreal! So this committee is attempting to….what?

Little Latin Lois Of Oregon replied:
   Aw, that's the poster child for immigration reform, little Baba Looey, faithful companion and life partner to Quicks Draw McGraw, who are, if I am not mistaken, the illegitimate fathers of McGruff the crime dog, and NOT to be confused with the famous cartoon COLLECTOR and living caricature, Baba Booey. Wonder if Baba Looey ever got his green card.

Dave Letterman Comes Out of Retirement

Paul Shaffer

For the first time since his retirement, David Letterman returned to the stage and it was all to support an old friend. Sporting a burly beard, the former Late Show host, who signed off the air in May, appeared at the 7th Annual Little Kids Rock Benefit at Manhattan Center Grand Ballroom in New York City on Tuesday to help honor Paul Shaffer.

Shaffer was given the "Big Man of the Year" award by the nonprofit, which revitalizes music education in public schools. Letterman, who wore a suit and tie along with that crazy beard, said a few words about his former band leader, and it was just nice to see the old gang back together again.

The award Shaffer received was started for the late Clarence Clemmons and is given to someone who embodies the spirit of giving back to kids. Steve Miller and Graham Nash were also honored at the event.

We haven't seen or heard too much from Letterman since he passed the baton to Stephen Colbert. Now and then he's photographed in New York City - that Cast Away beard is hard to miss. In July, he released a special top 10 list to poke fun at Donald T-rump's presidential ambitions.

Letterman seems to have politics on the brain. Later this week he will be headlining a fundraiser for Democratic Representative Tammy Duckworth, who is running to represent Illinois in the U.S. Senate. Maybe he'll bring ole Biff Henderson as his plus-one to that and we can keep thisLate Show reunion tour going.

70 Percent Disapproval Rating

GOP Leadership

An overwhelming majority of Americans are dissatisfied with current Republican leadership in Congress, two recent polls found.

In a survey conducted by CNN and ORC International, 74 percent of respondents answered negatively to the question, "Do you approve or disapprove of what the Republican leaders in the US House and Senate have done so far this year?" Among Republicans, discontent with the party leadership is just as rampant - only 37 percent said they approve of GOP leadership in Congress, while 54 percent answered to the contrary. Eight percent had no opinion.

An ABC/Washington Post poll found a similar disapproval rating of Republicans in Congress: 71 percent.

There are two main factors for the discontent, says Doug Heye, a fellow at Harvard's Institute of Politics and former high ranking Republican adviser: conflict within the party and a general sense of distrust for all things Washington.

Cowell Replacing Stern

'America's Got Talent'

Simon Cowell is heading back in front of the cameras as a replacement for Howard Stern as a judge on NBC's summertime series "America's Got Talent."

NBC announced Thursday that Cowell, one of the show's producers and creators of the format, will start next season. The show has remained one of summer's most popular programs even as ratings for other reality shows have faded.

Cowell's caustic commentary on Fox's "American Idol" is what launched him into U.S. stardom. He left "American Idol" after the 2010 season, when it was still one of television's top shows, and will begin on "America's Got Talent" shortly after "American Idol" goes off the air for the final time.

The show will be in its 11th season next summer. The format has been replicated widely, now airing in 183 countries.

Nurse Sues New Jersey Gov. Christie

Kaci Hickox

A nurse who was quarantined against her will inside a plastic tent in New Jersey after treating Ebola patients in West Africa filed a civil rights lawsuit against Governor Chris Christie (R-Pendejo) on Thursday, her lawyer said.

Kaci Hickox is claiming in her lawsuit that Christie, now a Republican presidential candidate, unconstitutionally and unreasonably detained, isolated and quarantined her in October last year without a valid legal or medical reason.

Hickox, who became known in the media as the "Ebola nurse," is seeking compensatory and punitive damages of at least $250,000, Siegel said.

After sharply criticizing Christie over her forced isolation for nearly 80 hours, Hickox was driven to her boyfriend's home in Fort Kent, Maine, where Governor Paul LePage ordered her quarantined, even though she had tested negative for the virus.

Late last year, Maine settled a lawsuit brought by Hickox over the quarantine.

Wake-up Call


$90 Million Copyright Settlement


Streaming music company Pandora has agreed to pay $90 million to settle a lawsuit brought by major record labels over its use of recordings released before 1972.

The labels, including divisions of Sony, Warner and Universal, had argued that songs such as Aretha Franklin's "Respect" and the Beatles' "Hey Jude" are not covered by federal copyright law, but they have been protected in common law by states including New York.

The settlement follows a similar deal in June with satellite radio giant Sirius XM, which agreed to pay $210 million.

Pandora Media Inc.'s settlement gives the Oakland, California, company until the end of 2016 to come to a licensing deal for use of those songs going forward.

Seeks to Sanction Lee Daniels

Sean Penn

The legal dispute between Sean Penn and Empire co-creator Lee Daniels is quickly turning on tactics.

In September, Penn filed a $10 million lawsuit over a comment that Daniels had made to The Hollywood Reporter. In an interview, Daniels defended Empire star Terrence Howard over media reports of domestic trouble. "[Terrence] ain't done nothing different than Marlon Brando or Sean Penn, and all of a sudden he's some f-in' demon," Daniels told THR. "That's a sign of the time, of race, of where we are right now in America."

In his lawsuit, Penn alleges that "Daniels falsely equates Penn with Howard, even though, while he has certainly had several brushes with the law, Penn (unlike Howard) has never been arrested, much less convicted, for domestic violence, as his ex-wives (including Madonna) would confirm and attest."

Daniels figures to raise some sort of First Amendment defense to his comments and apparently he sees procedural advantage in fighting the lawsuit in federal court rather than a New York state court. So Daniels' attorneys submitted a notice of removal of the case, citing diversity jurisdiction - Penn lives in California, Daniels in New York.

In a letter to a federal judge today, filed in court, the move is called "improper and legally-defective" because under the forum defendant rule, a civil action can't be removed to federal court if the defendant is a citizen of the state where the action is brought. In other words, because Daniels is a New Yorker, he had to face the lawsuit in New York Supreme Court.

Wants To Return To 'The Voice'

CeeLo Green

CeeLo Green says he has grown personally and professionally and wants to return to "The Voice."

An original coach when the show premiered in 2011, Green left last year after facing charges in a felony drug case. He pleaded no contest to giving a woman ecstasy at a 2012 dinner and recently completed his sentenced community service. He remains on probation.

After entering the plea, Green posted a series of messages on Twitter, including one that read: "Women who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!" He later posted an apology, but the statements led to the cancellation of a reality show and several concert appearances.

While he is hoping for a return to TV, Green said his first priority is to "reacquaint with the music community and say, 'I belong to you.' " He said he channeled the emotions he experienced with his legal and personal struggles into his new album, "Heart Blanche," due Nov. 6.

Targeted In Suit By Hearing Impaired

Hollywood Studios

Several leading Hollywood studios, including Disney, Paramount and Sony, are the target of a class-action lawsuit that accuses them of discriminating against the deaf and hearing impaired.

The suit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court this week against eight major movie and television studios, alleges that numerous films were being marketed as fully captioned when in fact they lack subtitles for song lyrics.

Among the entertainments mentioned in the suit are "The Godfather," "The Avengers," "Minions" and Netflix's hit TV series "Orange is the New Black" and "House of Cards."

"For people who are deaf and hard of hearing to understand a show, captions and subtitles are essential," said Meredith Sugar, president of the Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (AG Bell), several of whose members are party to the suit.

Reducing Jail Phone Rates


The Federal Communications Commission's decision Thursday to take additional steps to slash how much can be charged for phone calls made from jails and prisons was hailed as removing a burden on families and criticized as a budget buster for some facilities.

FCC commissioner Mignon Clyburn, a Democrat, said before the vote in Washington that the cost of the calls have placed "incredible burdens" on the families of the more than 2 million people incarcerated in the U.S.

Dorothee Warner, 56, of Overland Park, Kansas, said she has spent more than $2,000 over the past year so she and her family can talk to her jailed son.

Over the years, defence attorneys also have joined in the fight for lower rates. But phone companies have defended the costs, saying some of the money generated is used for things like activities for the incarcerated and that the calls require costly security features. The FCC has countered that the cost of security features was built into the rate structure.

Two years ago, the FCC voted to restrict rates on inmate calls made from one state to another. The new changes go further, capping rates on all local, in-state long distance, interstate and international calls. The vast majority of inmate calls will cost no more than $1.65 for 15 minutes, although slightly higher rates will be allowed in some smaller institutions. And fees and other costs, which in some cases have boosted calls to $17 to $25 for 15 minutes, also would be limited.

Flushed Fake Poker Chips

Atlantic City

A man who was caught with counterfeit poker chips at a tournament in an Atlantic City casino after flushing $2.7 million worth of them down a hotel toilet was sentenced to five years in prison on Thursday.

Christian Lusardi, 43, of Fayetteville, North Carolina, had pleaded guilty to second-degree trademark counterfeiting and third-degree criminal mischief on Aug. 13. He was sentenced by New Jersey Superior Court Judge Bernard DeLury in Atlantic County, prosecutors said.

The chips were discovered on Jan. 16, 2014, two days after the Borgata Casino in Atlantic City, began hosting its "Winter Poker Open" in which Lusardi was competing.

Prosecutors said Lusardi, fearing he might be caught, flushed more than 500 fake poker chips down the toilet in his room at the nearby Harrah's Casino Hotel, clogging a pipe and causing a leak in the sewer line in two adjoining rooms.

State gaming authorities canceled the tournament on Jan. 18, 2014, when 22 other fake chips were found in a clogged toilet in a Borgata men's room.

A totem pole carved by the Alaskan Tlingit Tribe is boxed up at the Honolulu Museum of Arts, Thursday, Oct. 22, 2015, in Honolulu. While on a sailing trip to Alaska in 1931, actor John Barrymore stole the totem pole from an unoccupied village where it ended up in his California estate. After changing hands, the totem pole was donated to the Honolulu Museum of Arts in the early 1980's where it has remained since. The Museum gave the totem pole back to members of the Tribe today.

Fetches Record At Auction

Enigma Machine

An extremely rare and fully operational Nazi Enigma machine from World War II has sold for $365,000 in New York, setting a new record at auction, Bonhams said Thursday.

The M4 machine, which was built between 1943 and 1945, is one of around 150 to have survived from an estimated 1,500 that were built as Nazi Germany fought to fend off the Allies.

A spokeswoman for Bonhams said the $365,000 sale price set a new world record for an Enigma machine sold at auction. The purchaser at Wednesday's sale was identified only as a private collector.

The M4, with four rotors, is the scarcest of all Enigma encryption machines and was used on naval submarines.

Of the 50 Enigma machines on display in museums around the world, only seven are M4s, taken from captured U-boats, the auction house said.
