When we last saw the intrepid Rocket J. Squirrel and Bullwinkle the talking moose, the two most famous residents of Frostbite Falls, they had faded into a pinkish-purple hue and were in dire need of restoration. Enter Tiffany Ward, the daughter of "Rocky and Bullwinkle" creator Jay Ward, who spent the last six years restoring her father's beloved cartoon series. As they might've said on the show: Hokey smokes!

While baby boomers know him as the narrator of "Fractured Fairy Tales" on the old Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoon series, their parents remember former Encino resident Edward Everett Horton as Fred Astaire's foppish sidekick in several 1930s film musicals, including "The Gay Divorcee," "Top Hat" and "Shall We Dance." Although his voice carried aristocratic pretensions, Horton was born in Brooklyn in 1887, the son of the foreman of the New York Times composing room.

Taco Bell Corp. Monday asked customers to return promotional finger puppets and inflatable balls after receiving reports that some children got their tongues stuck in the puppets and that others became dizzy after trying to blow up the balls.

Hollywood premiere fund-raisers are strange beasts. Take "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle" benefit for Save the Children last Saturday. The privileged few who could afford to attend the screening and after-party with its overflowing food tables will probably never experience the poverty Save the Children works to relieve with its international hunger relief efforts and educational programs.

Once upon a time, there was a magnificent golden castle on a silver cloud high up in the sky, which has nothing to do with anything because our story is about an old woodchopper who lived in a shack, but that's a good way to start a fairy tale . . . . Sound familiar? If you're of a certain age and of a certain twisted frame of mind (or were of such mind a few short decades ago), then you will recognize at once the inimitable opening of yet another "Fractured Fairy Tale."

"Dudley Do-Right" isn't the only popular Jay Ward creation coming to movie theaters today. Accompanying the Universal live-action comedy (starring Brendan Fraser as the dashing Royal Canadian mounted do-gooder) is a new animated short rescued from the files of "Fractured Fairy Tales." Which means "The Phox, the Box & the Lox" isn't altogether new.

Broadcast bloopers (cont.): A reader called to say that Durward Kirby, the late co-host of TV's "Candid Camera," once mispronounced his own name on the air. It could have happened, but the reader may be thinking of the spoof on TV's "Rocky and Bullwinkle" cartoon show about the search for the "Kurward Derby," a hat that would transform the wearer into the smartest man in the world. Kirby did, however, once confess to a different kind of blunder.

Writer and director Ronnie Larsen likes to talk about sex. No shock if you're familiar with his "All-Male Peep Show" or "Making Porn." While in New York, he placed an ad in search of men to talk about sex and found 100 eager participants. These interviews are the basis of Larsen's new show, "A Few Gay Men: True Stories From Real People About Sex, Love and Life," at the Zephyr Theatre. If you blush and stammer at the mention of sex, this isn't the show for you.

Last year, many Southern California theme parks took the road less expensive to boost attendance. They added shows and parades, which are less costly than building new rides or major attractions. This year, the parks are returning to more elaborate summer plans: DISNEYLAND--The Anaheim theme park is heavily promoting its Fantasmic! show, a riverfront extravaganza in Frontierland that will feature a mixture of live performers and special effects.
