Cannonballs obviously a popular analogy of the time because......
Like a mighty cannonball he seems to fly
You'll hear about him everywhere you go
The time will come when everyone will know
The name of .......(full volume to great annoyance of everyone else present) Champion the Wonder Horse!
Champion the Wonder Horse!
I can still sing most of that song, and now that's set off both Torchy the Battery Boy and Fireball XL5.
