: Anybody remember which 1960s-1970s cartoon character used the catchphrase "rassafrassarickarackets"? If I remember correctly, it was a mild oath. Sorta like "darn."

Are you referring to Mutley, Dick Dastardly's greenish dog sidekick, as featured both in Hanna Barbera's Wacky Races and Stop That Pigeon? He used to say something like that. The phrase "sass'nfrass'n" as a mild curse is also often used by Sylvester in various Looney Toon cartoons.
