Cindy Williams -- RIP.

As a child of the 70's and 80's, this one hits me. Laverne and Shirley was one of my favorite shows of the late 70's. I will take on anybody in L&S trivia. My first question is usually the name of Shirley's stuffed animal toy. I saw an episode filmed in the studio audience. I don't think I've taken a celebrity death this hard since ... Wally from Leave it to Beaver.

I still haven't gotten over how the guy who played Lenny of the Lenny and Squiggy Duo on the show went on to play such bad guy parts in movies and TV. He played the brother in Better Call Saul. I don't think I saw three episodes of Laverne and Shirley cuz I wasn't watching TV in those days. But I do remember Lenny and Squiggy.

I looked up the name of Shirley stuffed animal name because it was going to drive me crazy. I won't reveal it so others can play. I remember their was as aspiring box on the show named Carmine. His nickname I seem to recall was the big ragoo. I have been hunting the theme to the show and it is stuck in my head. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 shlamiel shlamozel hoppenfeffer incorporated.

I know it without looking but will let others wonder since it seems I am in the minority.

As to Lenny and Squiggy the duo went to the same college where the ":-)" was invented. Add that to your trivia on the show!

TRIVIA: What kind of vehicle did they drive from Milwaukee to LA in?
BONUS: What kind did Squiggy want to drive in?

I can't think of a single tv show that I watched enough to be good at trivia for. If there was one, it would probably be "Married With Children" since I still occasionally watch it while going to bed.

Did you know there is a long version of it? I assume the theme song was a cut down version of an actual song that was around before the show started.

It might have been made a song to get radio play. Iirc “Believevit or Not” they did that for. Same with theme to “Moonlighting “. Back then the theme was big thing and helped make the show. Then they discovered the cold open could add a commercial.

Check out how long the theme to “Vega$” is and imagine how the reaction would be if you did it today.

Odd, question, so my guess was Marshall (in West Virginia.) I looked it up though; Univ of New Mexico. If I had guessed 100 times I would not have picked that.

Wikipedia agrees with you. Laverne & Shirley premiered in January 1976, Grecco's single was released in May of that year. It's Grecco's only charting single.

Thanks for the welcome. I was hoping the Wizard would answer as he claimed expert trivia knowledge.

You are correct, but "looking it up," is that against the rules?

Wow! Fun and smart -- the perfect combination.

Getting back to the theme song, IMDB says in their trivia section, "Cyndi Grecco was singing in a band at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Los Angeles in 1975. Composer Charles Fox, while at the amusement park with his kids, heard her voice and offered her the theme song "Making Our Dreams Come True" which became a top 20 hit and ran the length of the show." -- source

Also taking the final exit recently was Lisa Loring. She was 64. She had what's being described as a massive stroke which sent her to the hospital for three days before being declared brain dead and removed from life support.

Loring is best known for playing the original Wednesday Addams in the original "The Addams Family" (1964-1966) television show. She was only 6 years old when she landed the part.


With Lisa Loring's passing, who is the only main cast member from the original Addams Family still alive?

Yes. John Astin is still with us at the age of 92.

Before Loring passed, the most recent cast member to go had been Felix Silla who played Cousin Itt. He died in Las Vegas in 2021.

Quote: Wikipedia

In the 1960s television series, Thing—strictly speaking, a disembodied forearm, since it occasionally emerged from its box at near-elbow length—was usually played by Ted Cassidy, who also played the lugubrious butler Lurch. The two characters occasionally appeared in the same scene (in which case Thing would be played by a crew member, notably assistant director Jack Voglin). Thing customarily emerged from a series of boxes, one in each room in the Addams' mansion, and the mailbox outside. It occasionally emerged from behind a curtain, within a plant pot, the family wall safe, or elsewhere.

Since Cassidy was 6 feet 9 inches (2.06 m) tall, using him to depict Thing caused great technical difficulties on the set of The Addams Family. In many scenes he lay on his back on a wheeled trolley, below the line of sight of the cameras, and inserted his arm through the bottom of the box. Thing was usually a right hand, but Cassidy sometimes played it as left, simply to see if anyone would notice. Thing is credited as "Itself" at the end of each episode.

Mine was when I had the bar in Santa Barbara Joe Cocker came in one night really drunk and I didn't know who he was and I almost didn't serve him but he was so cool that I served him anyway and then somebody told me hey, that's Joe Cocker. He ended up playing pool and then passed out cold on the floor and he was with this absolutely gorgeous blonde woman and she got us to help her carry him out to the bed of the pickup truck which had a mattress in the back of it and off they want. The neat part about that was he had a couple songs on the jukebox and people played them and he's singing along with the songs while he was playing pool. I called a couple people I knew and by the time he left the bar was packed with onlookers.

A close associate has a celebrity story

He wanted to make one of his birthdays a milestone and most memorable birthday party so he rented out the swankiest party room at a top club in LA.

The first hour or so everything was fantastic but then he gets notified by the club proprietor that a refund of some amount will be configured because Prince and his entourage have paid a surprise visit and they need to give him the room.

Rather than waste his birthday in anger he lets his partygoers know they have to vacate the room.

Apparently Prince finds out what the delay is and isn't having it. He orders the partygoers to stay where they are and joins the birthday bash along with his entourage.

My friend has a dozen photos now of him celebrating with Prince personally.

Needless to say it did indeed become his most memorable birthday party.

Yes you are right about that. Great in hockey but not a great resume in life. I saw Bobby one time as he was coming into a hockey banquet to speak to a bunch of excited minor hockey kids. I was leaving the arena as he was entering and he appeared very drunk. He had a serious drinking problem in those days.

Things are so much different today. I'm not defending anything he did, but in today's society, there would have been all sorts of help provided to him. A little help goes a long way, but during his career seeking help was a stigma, and management just turned a blind eye.

He had a strange career. He mainly was a face but was a better heel. WWWF didn't use him well, but oddly set him up to beat Hulk Hogan on national tv, Hulks only loss in a three year stretch.
WCW signed him to a long-term contract, sent him home, and never once used him, paying him superstar money not to wrestle. When his contract expired seven years later, he could wrestle independent shows, but by then, he was well past his prime.

As a face he was mainly a "fun" character. A midcarder who had good wrestling ability but was not good enough to get a belt nor tough enough for the best feuds. Then they made him "The Genius" and he moved slightly up the card but not enough time had lapsed, he was still "Leaping" Lanny Poffo. Then they made him the sidekick to Curt "Mr Perfect" Henning. That got him up the card but he was a sidekick. Ironically a few years later Henning became the sidekick to Ric Flair but that was a sidekick job better than most main event guys had. IIRC he was hurt so had to go sidekick.

In the bizarre deaths file we have Flamingo the pink pigeon who died last night from being ... dyed.

Flamingo gained fame last month after being discovered in Madison Square Park in New York. At first, ornithology experts were flummoxed by the bird's pink coloration until they realized it had been deliberately painted that way, presumably for a dove release at a gay wedding or perhaps at the gender reveal party of some rich couple's baby.

As the dye deteriorated, the toxic fumes released we're enough to kill poor Flamingo. Still, the experts speculate that he would have died anyways. Flamingo was a king pigeon, a domestic bird likely raised for food. With no survival skills, once released into the wild he would have either starved to death or quickly fallen victim to predators.

The things we humans do for love.

I think I've seen him around. Excels at completing various isolated tasks, including chauffeuring and automobile recycling. Not a great caddy, though. I'd really like to meet his haberdasher.

From one of Raquel Welch's online bios:

Other notable roles for Welch include the titular role in 1970’s “Myra Breckinridge,”

LOL, a sly choice of adjective.

R.I.P. Raquel Welch.

I don't know if I have ever seen a movie with Raquel Welch.
At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.

When I was dating her we never went to the movies, so that makes two of us…

I think of ‘Planet of the Apes’. None others come to mind.

I didn't realize that you used to go for the older ladies. Seeing pictures of your wife leads me to believe you went the other direction on this one.
