slumry commented on the word chatty cathy
"Chatty Cathy" was a doll manufacturel by Mattel from about 1959 to 1965. She "said" several phrases when her string was pulled.
Hence, chatty cathy refers to someone who talks incessantly--like the earlier chatterbox.
Another phrase is who put a nickel in you? (It would be more now, inflation and all!)
