Fuzzy Wuzzy Buzzy Boop...

Continuing on from my previous post.  Fozzy the Bear reminds me of a childhood chant:
Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear
Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair
So Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy
Was he?!
Googling the song I arrived at :  Talk: Fuzzy Wuzzy.  Note this excerpt from the site:

  • ...in Dad's Army. Specifically, Corporal Jones' comments about having fought "the Fuzzy-Wuzzies" with Lord Kitchener. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 195.26.60.62 (talk) 15:16, 26 May 2008 

I had no idea of the songs origins!!  On the films IMDb page, Dad's Army we find our man:

Clive Dunn...
 LCpl. Jack Jones (80 episodes, 1968-1977)
It's interesting that Dunn should crop up given the recent "Dunk Theme" pattern-cluster.  Note from Dunn's IMDb page:
Clive Dunn (January 9, 1920 -   He was an actor and writer, known for Dad's Army (1968), Bootsie and Snudge (1960) 
So it's the "Bootsie" that caught my eye-- another addition to the "Bootz Theme" pattern-cluster. One of the Directors in the tv series stands out:Eric Fawcett, his surname is an addition to the recent "Fawcett/Faucet" pattern-cluster.
  • Eric Fawcett was born on April 3, 1904 - January 9, 1972)
He died on Dunn's birthday, generating a "January 9(x2)" pattern-cluster.  AND, he was born on 4/3/4... one off from 4/4/4!!!  Hmmm, 444 cropped up today...

And so the third in the rhyme... Buzzy.  AND this led to Buzzy Boop!!  Hmmm:  Fuzzy Wuzzy Buzzy Boop, toe of frog and eye of newt, double double toil and trouble... 
It would almost be funny... if it weren't so deadly serious!!
