I'm sure we were all wondering this very thing.

An important cautionary tale.

In answer to your question.

As bad as the puns are, I did not find a single use of the word "boner". I approve.

"Count Duckula"? Oh man, Count Duckula was actually a pretty great cartoon from the Cosgrove Hall studio (who also made Danger Mouse — "Penfold?" "Yes, DM?" "Shush." — and Victor and Hugo — "What is it that it is that is the matter with you?!" — all of which I loved as a kid) and had one of the silliest ending credits I've seen yet. Apparently many (all?) of the episodes are on YouTube now! Here's the first one. I must now rewatch all of them straight through. Thanks, corny Tumblr comic!

I don't see a flag for "please turn narain's comment into a FPP".

Just to add to the Cosgrove Hall derail, David Jason did a tribute to the studio which was on Radio 4 yesterday. (Further fodder for a FFP - hint ;))

I love the skeleton cartoons and I know osteologists who will live them too.

Can't figure out if this is a typo or clever in-joke.

These skeleton cartoons are allright, but they need to be fleshed out a bit.

Yesss! I'm going to send one of these to my pun-loving nurse brother every day! (Unless I crack, send him the whole list and call him to act them out loud together, oh my goodness, yes, that is my plan for today!)

It was a happy occipident.

Some might say that they've got no heart, and that you can see right through them; but I prefer to think that when you remove all the fat and rotten bits, you're left with something that will last a very long time.

Without these jokes, skeletons on Halloween would be too sternum.

Totally rib-tickling!

To the extent skeletons have any body language, this artist gets it perfectly. The sardonic glares and barely-stifled glee of the joking bones are sublime.

These jokes were dumb and I totally approve of all of them.
