Did you know “See spot / see spot run / run spot, run!” isn’t a direct quote from any ‘Dick and Jane’ book? It’s just an amalgamation of the way those books were written!

Checking out reference material for ‘Dick and Jane’, I didn’t realise how badly the authors wanted children to learn the phrase “Oh!” I guess that’s all you needed to get by in the 1930s.

“Nazi Germany just invaded Poland!”

“Oh! Oh see! Oh see funny Germany!”
