Foundstufffunstuff from a december 1982 tv @mythirdparent


From a December 1982 Tv Guide. I remember watching this back then. Hosted by Robin Williams and featuring lots of great scifi clips. You can find it on youtube and watch it now.

Don’t recall this, but sounds quite interesting.

Fadedsignals laverne shirley was a spin off @mythirdparent


“Laverne & Shirley” was a spin-off of ABC’s successful “Happy Days” sitcom. The comedy aired from 1976 to 1983, starring Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams as two single women living in MIlwaukee in the late 1950s and 1960s. 

The syndicated version of the series was called “Laverne & Shirley & Company” from 1981 to 1983 because first-run episodes of the series still aired on ABC.

“Entertainment Tonight” interviewed some of the cast in January 2015.

There was an animated spin-off, “Laverne & Shirley in the Army,” which aired on Saturday mornings in 1981 on ABC.

I had such high hopes for this show and loved it when I saw it and was sad it was cancelled. I thought it was great.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to make the world’s first bionic man. Steve Austin will be that man. Better than he was before. Better…stronger…faster.

Land of The Giants (ABC, 1968-1970).

This would have been the cheesiest show of its time, but Lost in Space got there first.

Broadcastarchive umd mighty mouse was originally @mythirdparent


Mighty Mouse was originally conceived by Paul Terry’s Terrytoons studio for 20th Century Fox. Created as a parody of Superman, he first appeared in 1942 in a theatrical animated short titled The Mouse of Tomorrow. The original name of the character was Super Mouse, but after 7 films produced during 1942 to 1943, it was changed to Mighty Mouse in 1944. 

Beginning in 1945, some Mighty Mouse episodes had musical opera-like dialogue, and he was drawn slightly differently. Both changes were an attempt to hearken to the growing popularity of singer/ actor Mario Lanza. The first episode like this was “Mighty Mouse and The Pirates”. Others included “Gypsy Life”, “The Crackpot King”, and others. As time went on, many Mighty Mouse adventures were focused on Pearl Pureheart and Oilcan Harry. These episodes were always sung by all the characters including Mighty Mouse himself.

Mighty Mouse had little impact as a theatrical feature, but became Terrytoons’ most popular character and a cultural icon on television. CBS purchased the Terrytoons studio from Paul Terry in 1955. The Mighty Mouse Playhouse aired on Saturday mornings from 1955 until 1967 using the existing feature film library. (Wikipedia)
