The Angry Beavers

Please tell me that someone out there remembers, and loved, the Nickelodeon cartoon The Angry Beavers.

It came out in 1997 and ran for a few years. Basically it was a show about Norbert and Daggett Beaver- brother beavers who lived out on their own. Daggett was borderline "special" and Norbert was the brains of the bunch.

They ate oakmeal. How cool is that?!

If Brett and I were in this world of The Angry Beavers, I would totally be Norbert - the clever beaver, and Brett would be poor Daggett. Daggett Doofus Beaver. Why? Like I tell many of our friends, "Brett is the smartest dumb person I know". He has an amazing vocabulary, but he often uses his "big" words out of context. It's cute. Sometimes he comes up with some doozies,
Brett: "Do chickens have nipples?"
Me: "Um, no hun, they don't"
Brett: "Oh wait...little chicks, are fowl, not... ok ok I got it"

A recent favorite,
Me: " My cousin decided they are going to name their son Triston"
Brett: "Isn't that a cracker?"... pause... "No.. wait, Triscuts are crackers"

So you see, we are totally like Norbert and Daggett:
Daggett: ...I suffered an unexpected prolapse...Norbert: You mean relapse.Daggett: Work with me here.

I can totally hear Brett saying:
Daggett: Urethra! I found something!

-For those of you who are total spoot heads and don't know what any of this is about you can watch the opening clip here. (And please be cautious if you are trying to find any pictures or videos on your own and type in Angry Beaver in the search bar). You have been warned!

I would like to make it clear that yes 1997 was a little late for me to be watching cartoons... but my niece was 5 then and I watched it with her so LAY OFF!
