When my mother, her sister, and some cousins were very young, there was a family member that would make them memorize nonsense sayings that they thought she made up. Her reasoning was that if they were ever kidnapped, then the sayings would help with their identification if they were ever found, especially later in life. Then, several years ago, my mother saw an episode of Bewitched that contains one of those sayings, and her curiosity about how it got on the show has continued to grow. She thinks its in the episode where Tabitha makes her toys come to life. The saying includes "onery orey ickory ann..." Does anyone know what episode this was in, what was actually said and by whom, the writer of that episode, and information about who I can contact to see where it originated.
