Hello from across the pond. Enjoy the site, and I'll apologize in advance for asking for any translations of colloquialisms like "grumpy old Hector". ;D

Hi Daisy and welcome.

"Grumpy old Hector" is a reference to the old children`s cartoon "Hector`s House". A French produced BBC kid`s cartoon featureing a grumpy old dog and a cat called Zaza I think. Was on in the early 70`s I think as I remember watching it with my baby nephew. There was the cat and a frog that gave Hector a hard time and he`d finish every episode with "I`m a great big **** old Hector" - the ***** being silly, hungry , grumpy or such depending on what had happened but everyone quotes the grumpy old Hector bit.
