Phrase usually uttered in a cracked, adolescent voice by Henry Aldrich, played mostly by Ezra Stone, on the radio show The Aldrich Family.
Used in a variety of Warner Brothers cartoons, including
- Farm Frolics (Clampett, 1941) by a mother and son ant
- Hollywood Steps Out (Avery, 1941) with Henry Fonda saying it
- Goofy Groceries (Clampett, 1941) said by the gorilla
- Book Revue (Clampett, 1946) said by Henry VIII
The horse in the Private Snafu short The Home Front (Tashlin, 1943) also uses the phrase.
