Plot summary from Wikipedia
The story follows the experiences of a young mongoose named Rikki-Tikki-Tavi (for his chattering vocalizations) after he is adopted into a British family residing in India, as a pet and as protection against venomous cobra snakes. After becoming friendly with some of the other creatures inhabiting the garden, Rikki is warned of two cobras Nag and Nagaina, who are angered by the family's presence on their territory. Accordingly Nag enters the house's bathroom before dawn but is attacked by Rikki. The struggle that ensues awakens the human family and the father kills Nag with a shotgun.
The grieving Nagaina attempts revenge against Rikki's humans, cornering them as they take breakfast on an outdoor veranda. While Nagaina is distracted by a female tailor bird Rikki destroys the cobra's unhatched brood of eggs except for one. He carries it to where Nagaina is threatening to bite the child Teddy while his parents watch helplessly. Nagaina, enraged, recovers her egg, but is pursued by Rikki-Tikki away from the house to the cobra's underground nest where an unseen final battle takes place. Rikki emerges triumphant from the hole declaring Nagaina dead. His subsequent role is to protect the family by keeping the garden free from any future intrusion by snakes.

Okay at less than four minutes into this video I was ready to ask these kids exactly how old they are b/c they obviously were not old enough to talk about Nickelodeon from the 80's. The the guy asks the girl a question about a supposed Pinwheel Cartoon called "Clock Man." The girl tells him that she's never heard of it but then says, "But I'll tell you who might know and that's Peggy Sue Clay, she runs the Nickelodeon Fan Blog." YES I ALMOST SCREAMED WHEN I HEAR IT, WOW!!!!! OH MY GOSH I SERIOUSLY GOT A SHOUT OUT FROM THESE KIDS WOW!!!

Those of you follow my blog on a consistent basis know how much I LOVE Sha Na Na by the many videos I post by them. Even though I’ve never seen them in concert or have met any of them they were a part of my childhood and now that I’ve rediscovered them as an adult I love them even more than I did when I was a little girl.
The Sha boys, as we call them on the forums, have brought me much joy over the years so it is with a very heavy heart that I dedicate this week’s Classic Nick Rocks to Frederick "Dennis" Greene who passed away last Saturday. We love you very much Denny and you are very missed. RIP
