Dawn Wells spills the coconut creme pie on Gilligan’s Island
May 29th, 2020 under 60s. [ Comments: none ]


So sit right back, and you’ll hear a tale. In 1964, seven people went on a three-hour tour, and we are still talking about them today. Of course, I am talking about Gilligan’s Island. And Dawn Wells, who played MaryAnn, is talking about it to Studio 10’s Craig Bennett.

The actress revealed secrets to him about her fellow castaways. She says that Bob Denver was a shy man, unlike Gilligan. However, he was funny like his character. Alan Hale, Jr. loved playing the Skipper up until his death in 1990. Jim Backus was just as cheap as Thurston Howell. While Natalie Schaffer was as proper as Mrs. Howell. When it comes to who she thinks MaryAnn would have had an island fever with, both her and her character had a thing for the Professor, Russell Johnson.

Although, he was never going to see her bellybutton. Back then, they were not allowed to show the whole thing. A half-moon was OK, but not a full circle. She says cleavage was also a no-no. Imagine what would have happened if Raquel Welch had landed the role of the sweet girl next door?

One thing, most girls next door know how to do is cook, and Wells showed us to bake a coconut creme pie. How yummy does it look? I told my friend to make it bake it for me because I don’t do that.

The Cleaver brothers from Leave It to Beaver reunited

Ever since Leave It to Beaver debuted in 1957, everyone has been in love with the Beaver and his brother Wally. Now, 62 years later, Jerry Mathers and Tony Dow recently reunited at The Hollywood Show. It is nice to see their friendship has lasted as long as their show that is still airing in syndication.

I find that shows where the casts remain close after it has its run are the ones that last the longest in syndication. It is as though we can feel their chemistry through the screen.

Now let’s talk about the actors, can you believe they are in their 70’s? They both aged really well. Maybe it is time they revived the show again, and their grandsons are the best of friends like they were.

A classic sitcom fan’s wet dream!
January 13th, 2020 under 60s, 70s, 80s, Lydia Cornell, Wet dream. [ Comments: none ]


If you are a fan of classic sitcoms, then you recognize all of these faces. In the late ’60s, we got to know Erin Murphy as Tabitha Stephens on Bewitched. Then in the mid-’70s, we were all saying, “Whatcha talking about Willis,” to Todd Bridges on Diff’rent Strokes. Finally, in 1980, Lydia Cornell was making TV sexier on Too Close for Comfort. Even though their shows have been in syndication forever, they never did one together.

So what brought the three of them together now? They were all celebrating Keith Coogan’s 50th birthday. Doesn’t it feel like all of this would be a perfect start for a new sitcom? It could be about child stars trying to get a second chance in Hollywood.

A Time Tunnel reunion

Time Tunnel
Even though Time Tunnel aired for just one season from 1966-1967, it still airs in syndication. The cast also formed a special bond and still hang out 53 years after it debuted. James Darren shared this photo with his co-stars Lee Meriwether and Robert Colbert and they still all look fantastic.

Even though they are all in their 80’s, I think they have one more season in them. Would you watch?

A ’60s teen girl’s wet dream, James Darren and Engelbert Humperdinck!
September 24th, 2019 under 60s, Wet dream. [ Comments: none ]


Back in the ’60s, teenage girls were listening to Engelbert Humperdinck sing Release Me and watched James Darren in The Time Tunnel. However, they never saw the two teen idols together.

What those teens did not know is that they are actually good friends. So much so, that this weekend Darren and comedian Johnny Dark came out to help the crooner accept his Hall of Fame Award from the Hollywood Media Professionals.

Even though both the iconic crooners are 83 years old, I am sure none of those girls would turn them down now because they look great for their age. They might not be teen idols anymore, but they are definitely octogenarian idols!
