: : Do you know the origin of the phrase "Wrong way Corrigan"?

: During the 1930s, Douglas Corrigan wanted to fly across the Atlantic in a small single-engined plane but the US avation authorities refused permission on safety grounds. He filed a plan to fly from New York to California but ended up in Ireland, claiming his compass had failed and he had flown the wrong way by mistake.

Does anyone remember Wrong-way Peach Fuzz on "Rocky and Friends," otherwise known as the Bulwinkle show?
