"Heavens to Purgatroyd!"

That last title got me thinking about good ol' Snagglepuss and what his catchphrase, "Heavens to Murgatroyd", actually means.

Any takers?

I'd like to take this opportunity to exit stage left.

well just in case you didn't find out, the reason I believe is tha Murgatroyd is a girls' name, so it is a play on the "Heavens to Betsy" phrase.
Hope this helps, and hope you are impressed with my vast array of trivia!
