Research Project For Cherrio [Brian] - Cheerio is an upbeat parting exclamation, British, 1910, from cheer. Cheer is a salute or toast when taking a drink, British, 1919, from plural of cheer (also cf. cheerio). Earlier it is recorded as a shout of support or encouragement (1720). The old English greeting what cheer was picked up by Algonquian Indians of southern New England from the Puritans and spread in Indian languages as far as Canada.

Research Project about No Tickee, No Washee - "No Tickee, No Washee" came from a movie released November 8th 1915. It was released as a split reel along with the documentary "California Scrap Book". It was also popularized by Hop Sing, the Cartwright family's cook on the US television series Bonanza which ran on the NBC network from 1959-73. Victor Sen Yung played the Chinese immigrant.

The servile character of Hop Sing first appeared as a laundryman of the same name in 1876, in Bret Harte's play Two Men of Sandy Bar. Folklorist Wolfgang Mieder cites his comically accented Pidgin English diction as the likely source for the proverbial ethnic slur, "No Tickee, no Washee".

Research Project about Washee Ironee [Donna] - This was from the Our Gang movie of 1934 called "Washee Ironee". On the day that he is scheduled to perform a violin solo at a swank bridge luncheon held by his social-climbing mother, rich kid Wally Albright opts instead to play football with the Our Gang kids. With Wally's help, the kids win the game, but his expensive clothes are covered with mud. Unofficial "Gang" leader Spanky McFarland declares that he and his pals are perfectly capable of washing Wally's duds on their own --- and the result is a slapstick smorgasbord, culminating in a typically outsized Hal Roach traffic jam. Originally released on September 29, 1934, "Washee Ironee" was the only "Our Gang" comedy helmed by perennial Laurel and Hardy director James Parrott.
