THEME:   first word of a reinterpreted phrase is synonymous with diminutive
   
GOOD ONES:     
Potty-training tool   LITTLE JOHN   
Child on TV for decades   JULIA [can't be a child for decades, which is the point]   
Grinder   MOLAR [I thought subs, etc.]   
Stunning or cunning  FOXY   
   
BTW:   
Hummingbird feature   SMALL BILL [their bills are huge comapred to their bodies; I'd go with "Chickadee feature"]   
   
Mark's a  good constructor so I'll try to forgive him for reminding me of "Sugar Sugar."   
   
   
RATING: ;D ;D   
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun

Parental advisory for Mister magus: The following post gives details about Sugar Sugar. Read at your own risk. :)

*****************************************************

Sugar Sugar was written by Jeff Barry and Andy Kim and recorded by the Archies. The cartoon video showed Archie, Jughead, Betty, Veronica and Moose singing and playing instruments but the actual recording featured only Ron Dante and Toni Wine singing all the parts through the miracle of multi-tracking. The Archies spent four weeks at number one with that song but they could not tour or appear on television because they were just cartoon characters.

Sugar Sugar was first offered to the Monkees but Michael Nesmith turned it down, saying that he did not want his band to be stereotyped by recording "bubblegum music." Dummy! Wilson Pickett got to #25 with his own version of the song in 1970.
