Mr. Peabody & George of the Jungle...

...although it's 'An Ape Named Ape' not 'Abe'.

Connestion: From two animated series of the 1960s written by and starring the same talent.

The quote has been appropriately corrected.

It's odd; I knew that. Not sure why I typed that. My friend Matt from college always screamed whenever I played the song, because I told him the words were "an ape named ape", and he insisted that it sounded like they were singing "a dape dape dape!"

P: standard phrase from "Mr Peabody's Improbable History"
E: theme to "George of the Jungle"
C: Both are Jay Ward productions

Point to Mr. FitzSimons.
