The tall short idiom is so common in cartoons!  More commonly known as a sidekick I guess.

Moose and Squirrel at the top!

Boris Badenov and Natasha

Yogi and Booboo

Quickdraw and Ali Baba

George Jetson and Rastro

Abbot and Costello

Batman and Robin

Longjohn and Petite

And many more!

(We used to have a couple of electricians at work who were affectionately known as Moose and Squirrel. :D )

So Boris and Rocky were short with tall sidekicks, so Jay Whatever was different than the Hanna-Barberra and rest of the world norm of tall protagonist with short sidekick.

Hmm, maybe Jay was short.  Gotta look up his last name - the man was a genius. :)

Jay Ward - no mention of his height, but he looked like Teddy Roosevelt. :D

I forgot how witty Moose and Squirrel were. :D  From the Toon World site or whatever:

Bullwinkle: You just leave that to my pal. He's the brains of the outfit.
General: What does that make you ?
Bullwinkle: What else? An executive..

I have no idea what you are rambling on about.

Then it's not just me?  

Actually, I have no idea what this whole thread is about.  I just assumed it was a derivative of some other thread(s) that I haven't read.  Or maybe a series of PM's that I am not privy to.  Whatever the case, I am lost, as usual.  :dontknow:

This thread means nothing and is about even less. No Prime Ministers, no privy council and no whatever.
