Tooter Turtle - Naive turtle featured as a part of the Saturday morning cartoon KING LEONARDO AND HIS SHORT SUBJECTS/ABC/1960-63.

Mr. Wizard and Tooter the Turtle - KING LEONARDO AND HIS SHORT SUBJECTS

To satisfy his curiosity on a number of subjects, Tooter (who wore a straw hat, collar and necktie) visited Mr. Wizard, a lizard magician (dressed in sorcerer's hat and robes) who lived in the woods at the base of a tree.

With a wave of his arms, Mr. Wizard sent Tooter Turtle through time or space to experience what it was like to be a gunfighter, knight, police officer or sailor. By the end of his adventure Tooter realizes (like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz) that there's no place like home and being a simple turtle.

When Tooter cried "Help, Mr. Wizard!", the lizard sorcerer proclaimed his magical chant: "Drizzle, Drazzle, Druzzle, Drome, time for this one to come home!"

After Tooter arrived safely back, Mr. Wizard advised him: "Be what you is, not what you is not. Folks that what is, is the happiest lot."

TRIVIA NOTE: In the sci-fi flick The Matrix (1999), when Neo (Neanu Reeves) calls to get extracted from the Matrix, he says, "Mr. Wizard get me the hell out of here!"
