Dick Van Dyke and Conan O’Brien dancing together is pure happiness!
December 17th, 2014 under Conan O'Brien, Dick Van Dyke. [ Comments: none ]

Dick Van Dyke was on Conan yesterday and Conan O’Brien told the legend that they way he danced in movies like Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was an inspiration to him. So Rob Petrie asked if he would like to dance with him and of course the TBS late night host said yes. Then the two of did a soft show routine that will make even the biggest Scrooge in your life smile.
Can you believe that DVD is 89 years old because he still moves like the man we grew up watching in all those Disney musicals. I guess it helps when you wife is more than half your age!!!

Before Dick Van Dyke was solving murders on Diagnosis Murder, he would’ve needed to look into himself on Alfred Hitchcock Presents. He looks the same now as he did when he was 35 in that 1960 episode.


Dick Van Dyke sings Chitty Chitty Bang Bang a cappella!!!
February 5th, 2013 under Dick Van Dyke. [ Comments: none ]

The legendary and loveable Dick Van Dyke leads the a cappella group The Vantastix and today he Tweeted they were looking suggestions of what songs we wanted to hear them do while they rehearsed. Well someone suggested that they do Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and they obliged.
I never thought there was a way to make Chitty Chitty Bang Bang an even happier song than it already is, but that is exactly what The Vantastix have done. I can’t stop smiling as I listen to it over and over and over again! So no matter what type of day you are having, it will instantly get better when you listen to them harmonize one of the happiest songs on Earth!
BTW can you believe that he is 87 years old because he has more pep in his step then men half his age. I hope we are all that spry when we are his age.


What is Dick Van Dyke doing to the SAG Awards statue’s, well you know, his first name?
January 28th, 2013 under Dick Van Dyke. [ Comments: 1 ]
Dick Van Dyke was rightfully honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award yesterday at the SAG Awards. When he went back into the press room after he accepted it, he was photographed in a compromising position with the larger than life-sized version of the SAG Awards statue. Either that or he was just trying to cover up the anatomically correct statue that makes Jon Hamm and James Woods look small.
BTW I am know I am going to heck because of this post. I also know that my friend’s toddler, who is obsessed with Mary Poppins, is so going to kick me in the shin for writing anything negative about her idol. I hope that the legendary Dick Van Dyke can forgive me because I love him just as much as that little girl and did not mean to insult him in anyway, but the picture just made it so easy.
Finally I wish the young actors of today would look up to him, so that they can create a persona as lovable as his. I can’t think of anyone younger than Henry Winkler that is adored like he is, can you?


Imagine Johnny Carson as Rob Petrie on The Dick Van Dyke Show
November 30th, 2012 under Conan O'Brien, Dick Van Dyke. [ Comments: none ]

Legendary actor Dick Van Dyke was on Conan yesterday and the TBS late night host asked him if it was true that before Johnny Carson hosted The Tonight Show, he was up for the role of Rob Petrie on The Dick Van Dyke Show (obviously the show would’ve had a different name had it happened). He said yes it was true that Carson was considered for the role, but for whatever reason it didn’t work out. Then the Mary Poppins actor said, “Thank G-d it turned out the way it did because I would’ve been rotten on The Tonight Show.” Without hesitation Conan O’Brien said, “Oh, that job’s easy!” And everyone rightfully got big laugh!
BTW as a huge fan of The Dick Van Dyke Show, I am so happy things turned out the way it did. I seriously can’t and don’t want to picture the classic sitcom any other way.
