Robert, That's no joke because I guarantee that had her dad a breath left in him, EVERYONE would have heard about his disapproval of that union! Guarantee it! You'll note that the flood of claimed 'sightings' of Elvis suddenly went bone dry after that! I once went to the outside of Graceland and saw the enough of cult surrounding it for myself but I refused to help support Lisa Marie and Priscilla (and there were plenty of more interesting things to do in Memphis) so I didn't bother going inside. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 12, 2010, 11:18 am

Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show,The - TV Shows
Yeah,fletch, any show that transformed Bamm-Bamm the World's Strongest Baby into a total wimp and Pebbles from a sweet baby into a whiny scold more annoying than even her mother Wilma got on her worst day boned from Day One! UGH! What were they THINKING?! And don't get me started on their 'friends'. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 11, 2010, 11:42 am

Greatest American Hero, The - TV Shows
Here's a weird trivial thing about it! Originally the protagonist's surname was Hinkley. Understandably; after someone named John Hinkley attempted to assasinate President Ronald Reagan, TPTB hastily changed the surname to 'Henley' or 'Mr. H'. What's REALLY weird,though, is that before the show left the air, they changed the surname BACK to Hinkley even though President Reagan's attempted assassin had not changed HIS name. Did they count on the viewing public FORGETTING the attempted assasin's surname or not caring about it barely a year later?! I'm still clueless as to why ABC switched it back. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 11, 2010, 11:34 am

Kim Basinger - Celebrities
I agree- and, ironically, she seems to be proving to be the more stable of Ireland Baldwin's parents! Poor kid. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 11, 2010, 11:29 am

Josie and the Pussycats - TV Shows
Stephanie, The name of the ditzy blonde was Melody! I remember this because I don't recall her ever actually SINGING a melody. What's more interesting about her is that her speaking voice was performed by Jackie Joseph (who'd voiced Betty Rubble in "The Flintstones" and before that had played Audrey in the original "Little Shop of Horrors") and her singing voice was Cheryl Ladd (yep, Farrah's Replacement Angel!) -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 10, 2010, 10:54 am

Tonya Harding - Celebrities
There's a GREAT deal of stuff I could diss her over but in not wanting to make this a total dump session, I'll just ask if anyone else remembers how when she first got on the ice in Lilliehammer and she immediately burst into tears and begged for a chance to start over claiming that her laces were too short(and those judges actually let her do that? But she got no medals anyway- HA HA!).Anyway, that face she made reminded me of the late 'Sad Clown' Emmett Kelly from Ringling Brother's Circus! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 10, 2010, 9:53 am

Honeymooners, The - TV Shows
GREAT show but anyone else wonder if there were any husbands watching out there who actually POWWED their nearby wives 'right in the kisser' while Ralph comically threatened to do the same to Alice? Yeah, I know he never actually DID (and Alice knew it too, and never backed down no matter how much verbal stuff he yelled at her)! Also, the late Art Carney as Norton ROCKED (and it was his character who first used the phrase 'Hello, out there in TV Land!')! And, the comic talents of Gleason, Carney and Audrey Meadows were such that for once the TV audience had no problems seeing the action take place almost entirely in a home more depressing and downtrodden than most of theirs (unlike most 50's sitcoms with immaculate homes,etc). -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 10, 2010, 9:49 am

McMillan & Wife - TV Shows
fletch, I'm sure Mrs. McMillan would agree.[yeah, I'm being bad] -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 10, 2010, 9:40 am

David Cassidy: Man Under Cover - TV Shows
TOTALLY agree with you here, fletch! He was the son of Jack Cassidy but if there were any genes for doing dramatic acting, they sure didn't seem to get passed down to HIM! It didn't help that he seemed downright annoyed to have to stoop to this for a paycheck and it showed! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 10, 2010, 9:36 am

Flo (Progressive Insurance) - TV Shows
I'm not saying she doesn't have physical appeal,fletch, but she seems flakier than a Kellogg's factory! And, I'm staying in the 20th Century not doing ANY monetary transactions online- thanks very much! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 10, 2010, 9:32 am

Perry Mason (TV series) - TV Shows
Thanks for bringing that up, fletch! I liked the old show a great deal,too! But I always thought it was funny how they could never, EVER allow the existance of a child on the show to have been conceived from a nonmarital union ( going to absurd lengths to reveal 'secret marriages',etc.)- as though murder, extortion,blackmail were perfectly acceptable to the TV audience but for a child to be from a nonmarital would have been considering too offensive for the extremely sheltered audience (like no one ever knew anyone from one back then? Please!). Also, it was funny how Paul Drake never seemed to have any other clients and how he(and Della) were perfectly willing to drop whatever they were doing at any hour of the day or night just to suddenly help Perry prove a hunch! And, it was cool that Della called them Perry and Paul instead of 'Mr. Mason' and 'Mr. Drake' as most 50's secretaries did their bosses and bosses' colleagues back then! I don't think two-way first name basis re secretaries and employers was seen again on TV until Carol called Bob and Jerry by their given names on "Bob Newhart Show" in the 70's! And, of course, it was great seeing Paul, Perry (and sometimes Della) get the incriminating evidence with the capper of Perry getting the REAL criminal to spill their guts in front of the courtroom! Yeah, of course, I know in real life, that would have meant ANOTHER trial for the criminal instead of them being immediately taken away to prison forever but it was great drama! The original show NEVER boned but I'd like to forget the remakes ever happened. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 10, 2010, 9:29 am

Phyllis (TV series) - TV Shows
Phyllis was even more unlikable and self-pitying in San Francisco than she'd been in Minneapolis, her daughter Bess was barely shown and oddly melancholy the whole time- and it didn't help that the only interesting characters' performers died(two from old age- and one from murder) almost as soon as the audience got to know them! Phyllis would have been better off staying in the Twin Cities and Mary Richards would have been better staying in her original renovated Victorian efficiency apartment instead of moving into that boring contemporary high rise. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 9, 2010, 11:32 am

GEICO Gecko, The - Celebrities
fletch000, If they could get Kelsey Grammer to reprise the voice, I wouldn't be surprised if it had the same Frazier Crane shelf life. What's he doing these days, anyway? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 9, 2010, 11:19 am

Trix Cereal - Random Topics
Friedrich, I remember that 'Election' because it happened during the US Bicentennial . I admit that I pestered my mother into buying a box JUST so I could cast a vote and wasn't happy because not only did she insist I EAT the cereal [sorry, shanequia, I'm glad you liked it but I personally NEVER liked this stuff] but also, even though I voted to let the Rabbit EAT this stuff (and my vote was part of the MAJORITY who also voted), that rotten cartoon kid took the cereal AWAY from the Rabbit IN SPITE of the majority vote. BOO! Yep, I lost out and got ripped off TWICE- having to eat it and then having my vote being overturned by a rotten cartoon kid! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 5, 2010, 7:11 am

Mama's Family - TV Shows
I can't say I thought it was high-quality television nor something worth seeking out, but I always like seeing it if I happen to catch it when it's on- especially if it's in the Syndication Years with Beverly Archer played Iola Boylen the next door busybody who's more entertaining than Rue McClanahan's Aunt Fran (and she herself freely admits hating the character). Let's just say that I'm not unacquainted with ANY of these characters in Raytown! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 3, 2010, 7:14 am

BoneTheFish.com - Websites
Even if it's one of those navel-gazing blog deals, congratulations, shanequia, for having such outstanding posts as to get someone else's attention enough for them to consider you YouTube worthy material. I hope he/she respects you! I've always thought your posts were intriguing! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 3, 2010, 6:57 am

Love Boat - TV Shows
As bad as the show was (and it was AWFUL!), oddly enough, it almost singlehanded salvaged the cruise line industry which by that point was literally sinking due to it almost entirely being kept afloat as strictly as a travel option for old fogies too jittery to want to use airplane when travelling overseas. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 2, 2010, 11:37 am

Osbournes, The - TV Shows
I agree, Chubby Rain. I also say it boned when so many. .er boneheaded talking heads PRAISED them for being 'a normal family'! Profanity saturation in front of one's kids, sending underaged kids out to nightclubs and living in a gaudily decorated pigsty's 'normal?!' I'm middle aged but I have NEVER used that kind of language in front of (much less TO) my parents that that pair constantly used re their parents! And they actually acted surprised that that brood wound up with substance abuse issues! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 2, 2010, 11:30 am

Krystal Restaurant - Random Topics
Think of White Castle 'burgers' -only without the five holes bored in, shanequia. And even when I ate just one, it always felt as though I was digesting gravel afterwards. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 30, 2010, 7:44 pm

Adventures of Teddy Ruxpin, The - TV Shows
I'm thankful I'm too old for this to have ever been an issue for me personally but I hated how this toy did all it could to DIScourage kids from using their own imaginations and just plug their brains into whatever this thing was pitching. How do parents expect their kids to be creative or imaginative if they have them play with pre-programmed stuffed critters instead of the old fashioned kind that required us kids to supply every syllable of dialogue? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 30, 2010, 7:41 pm
