Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

Any of you American and Canadian oldtimers remember the "Howdy Doody Show" or the "Andy Devine Show" for kids during the early to mid-1950s? If so, who were your favorite characters? On Howdy Doody, I liked that old grump, Phineas T. Bluster. As for Andy Devine, there was no frog like Froggy!  wink

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

HEY!  I remember Howdy Doody.  Can't say I remember any of the characters though.

Andy Devine is someone I'll never forget, not so much for Andy's Gang but for "Jingles" with Wild Bill or "Cookie" with Roy Rogers.  Saw him just the other night in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence on TCM.  Really brought back memories. Andy, while not appreciated back then, was a big part of my youth. Once heard, one can never forget or mistake that voice!

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

Sure, I remember Howdy Doody and Andy Devine. I don't remember many details, though.

One of my best memories was when Burl Ives had a kids' show which, of course, was mainly based around music.

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

Oh yea, Burl Ives.  Don't remember the kids show but I loved his singing.  How can anyone not like "A Littlty Bitty Tear"?

Or the max: The original recording of Ghost Riders In The Sky ... and as a kid I use to say: "I don't like C&W" Yea! RIGHT!

And as vrkalak says: "the old cartoons" ... back in the day cartoons were "fun" and "funny"!  In my humble opinion, they have lost that!

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

Yeah, the old cartoons on Saturday morning were great. The cartoons today lack the animation and music of the old ones--the images/character move jerkily like robots. The stories are also wooden and humorless. Was it Andy Devine that used to show the old "Little Rascal" and "Laurel and Hardy" episodes? Of course, and then there were "The Three Stooges"....nyuk...nyuk...nyuk.... tongue

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

WOW!  Talk about a morning of going back.... "Forward to the Past!" hey, if they can have "Back to the Future" ...

Timeline: 1950 something, Saturday morning
... awake ... ... running to the living room
TV, on, select channel, plop down in front of it for cartoons - until 'they get up' and we hear:

"Turn the television off and get in here for your breakfast!."
And after breakfast, "It's a nice day, go out and play."

I'd come home "before dusk" - and dusk was a defined time! 'When the bottom of the sun hits the horizon", and I had better be home before then --- OR ELSE!

Sometimes I liked rainy days and winter!  smile

Little Rascals' Greatest Hits - Part 1

Yeah, stop shaving. Then you can just look interestingly grizzled instead of deathly big_smile

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

I stopped shaving in 91, although I had a moustache since ±1982  smile

I do trim my neck though and keep my beard short, too hot/humid in the summer here for a long one!

I shaved the last time, the day before I got out of the USAF in August 1970. Like Sector11, I trim my beard and mustache and shave my neck (and sometimes my head.  roll

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

^  DAMN!  You and I must have the same jeans genes!  I shaved the morning I got up to got to the release section and sign on the dotted line for the transition from RCAF to Civilian.

About 5 years later, I was going for a coffee with a bunch of BBS SysOps and BBS users and thought, "Just for fun!"  I shaved my beard and moustache off.  Squeeky clean upper lip and chin!

Not one person noticed, or if they did no one said a word.  A week later I ran into one of the ladies that was there for the coffee meet.

her: "OMG!  You're growing a beard!"
me: "Hmmmm, if you ever get your hair done and I don't say anything you had better not get angry at me!"
her: "Why?"
me: "How long have I known you?  Three years?  Well I have always had a full beard and shaved it off last weekend before we all met for a coffee.  YOU didn't notice!"
her: "Impossible I would have noticed!"
me: "Really!" as I pulled out my drivers licence and showed her.
her: "OOPS!" -->>  ops

We need an EVIL laugh.  This will have to do: anger_sm.png

That's one thing I like about growing up, you finally either get the presents you want, or you get nothing at all, which is also better than having to pretend that you got what you wanted.
