Chilly Willy is a funny animal cartoon character, a diminutive anthropomorphic penguin living in Alaska (although, in reality, the species is native only to the southern hemisphere). He was created by Paul J. Smith for the Walter Lantz studio in 1953. The character soon became the second most popular Lantz/Universal character, behind Woody Woodpecker.

Oh yeah...standing and swinging...totally could NOT do this on the swings at school! Of course, the most dangerous playground equipment back then was the see-saws. Don't know how many kids accidentally walked under the upraised end of a see-saw and got whacked on the head. Guess that's why they outlawed them while I was still in elementary school!
We called it stick ball sometimes and cork ball other times.

Colossal Cave Adventure - this is the first computer game that I remember. There were no graphics. Everything was left to your imagination.
Computers Games, Montanha-Russia Col., Caves Adventure, Texts Games, Games Revival, Texts Bas, Adventure Computers, Coloss Caves, Adventure Maine Png
Initially created to bring explorations in the Mammoth Cave into fruition for his kids visits Will Crowther created the first adventure computer game in 1976. A programmer and "experienced caver" Crowther added fantasy elements to his cave experiences in the game. The game also has aspects from a "non-computer role-playing game called Dungeons and Dragons." The game is all text with player moves completed with two-word commands in order to "navigate the cave, fight enemies, and locate treasure."
