Not sure it was regional. I grew up mostly in the SW - El Paso, Albuquerque but did some time in Hawaii too and I certainly remember it and think we used it. Part of the Ipana song is in "Grease" at the sleepover. Wikipedia the source of all knowledge says Ipana reached it's peak in the 1950s but faded fast in the 1960s. Bucky Beaver was a Disney creation.

The friendliest ghost you've seen

He always say, "Hello"
And he's really glad to meet cha
Wherever he may go
You know he's kind to ev'ry living creature

Since no one jumped in with it..."eenie, beenie, chili beanie, the spirits are about to speak..." was, of course Rocky & Bullwinkle.

That saying always came before they took a break for a commercial. I always thought it was a great line as a prelude to a fart. Knowing those Rocky & Bullwinkle writers, they might have been implying something about all those show interruptions. They were clever like that.

El, I still think of capris as pedal pushers in my mind! There is probably some technical difference, but I can't figure out what it is!So, being the curious type, I did a quick web search and found this:

The 3 types of cropped pants. (Maybe 4.)

Generally speaking, "cropped pants" refers to any pair of pants that is, well, cropped. In other words, shorter than a standard hem length.

But in between the tops of your feet and the bottoms of your knees, there are lengths that correspond to particular styles of cropped pants, listed here in order from a little bit cropped to a lot.

  • Ankle pants. This length is exactly what you think it is: cropped to hit just above your ankle bones.
  • Capri pants. Shorter than ankle pants, classic Capri pants come to a length that's slightly longer than halfway between the knee and the ankle. (Look at the length on the two examples Grace Kelly is wearing.) They also can come in a length that hits at about the mid calf. More on this later.
  • Clamdiggers. Picture someone who has rolled up their pants to walk on the beach barefoot, digging for clams. Yep, that's the length this corresponds to. Sometimes used interchangeably with Capris, true clamdiggers are more likely to be looser and cuffed, so I'm counting them as a separate length and style.
  • Pedal pushers. The shortest you can get without wearing actual shorts, pedal pushers end just below the knees (as opposed to Bermuda shorts, that end just above them).

Growing up in Maine, "Clam diggers" weren't a kind of pant so much as the way pants got rolled up to go wading or, surprise, digging for clams. Later, Clam Diggers were just below the knee length pants with a cuff, either made that way or created by rolling up some of the leg..

I knew you could clear all that up, NM! I think the diagram has the pedal pushers a little longer than as described. Turns up I WAS wearing pedal pushers (as per the written description. Mine ended just below the knee cap. Bonus about the Bermuda shorts, I was thinking about those recently too.

Now culottes...I think of those as a skirt divided into leg holes. When they came to fashion, the skirts were about the length shown in that diagram, so o.k.; but I think of culottes as being ANY length shorter than gaucho pants. In the 70's, I had some culottes that were short enough to get me sent home from school. That in itself was remarkable because hot pants were in style and girls regularly wore those (quite stylishly, I might add, with over the knee boots,) so I was not really dressing that scandalously.

I agree the diagram has the length of clam diggers too long, but fashion clam diggers and working clam diggers may be different things. I've always thought of culottes as various lengths, too, but don't go by me because I always thought Bermuda shorts where knee length or just below the knee length!

These are what I found searching short culottes, I remember them being called tap pants or skorts.

I mostly think of this when I think of culottes:

These are shown when I search culottes, but I would call them gauchos:
