As a kid in Medford, The "local" kids shows were....

.... RAMBLIN ROD, which was piped down from Portland and played weekday mornings showing old Merry Melody, Looney Toons, Popey, and Hanna Barbara cartoons.




....and on Sunday mornings we had BUMPITY which was a green blob puppet and his friend Fred, who was a worm. It was more of an educational show.





...and piped up from KATU in San Francisco was CHARLIE AND HUMPREY, who would sometimes host movies or tv shows.

Oh!  A local show (from Seattle) that I just remembered was "Boomerang" with Marni Nixon!  I don't remember much about it other than I knew about her from this show long before I ever learned about her connection to the "West Side Story" movie. :)

You can click HERE and scroll down to find a link to the theme song.  It starts out with kids singing the song and then Marni comes in about half-way through. :D

DR Cilla, please give Edith & her husband my condolences on their loss.

Thanks Jane, I will. She is being buried in a small country family cemetery.  The bad part of that is apparently the family members have to dig the grave. Yikes!  I don't think I could do that

Since I ended up spending 6 hours of my day off at the office working on books and other admin junk I hate to do, and since I worked through lunch....I'm going to go eat food!!!!
 
It wasn't all bad to be at the office today. It was wonderful to have a day with no one there.  I didn't answer the phone (I did check messages and returned a couple calls), but mostly got work done that I hate to do but really needed to get done.  I still have a lot of it left, but have gotten a system going.

"Educational."  Suddenly a lot about MB has come into clearer focus.  :)

I was just perusing PLAYBILL.COM'S CUE & A: Will Swenson and one of the questions was this:

Worst onstage mishap:  During previews for Lestat (yes, Lestat) we changed a scene to include the revelation of a crucifix around which the entire following scene would play out and reveal important vampire truths. Well, one night I forgot to bring on the crucifix. Nice job, Will. Douche.

;D

Jose, did you see/hear about this?

DR Kerry, Wallace lived for a time right across the street from the church. And Sandra had Ladmo's granddaughter as a classmate in elementary school.

My sister was on Romper Room. Her teacher was later fired for being unfit to be around children. She had an out-of-country abortion because she had taken thalidomide.

When I was in junior high school -- 8th and 9th grades -- a locally produced TV show, sponsored by Furman University and starring, I think, one of the university's speech teachers, was mandatory viewing twice a week in class.

It was called "How Do You Say It".  The teacher had a (more) drawn-out (than usual) drawl, and she would intone of the handpicked kids on her show, "How   do   you    SAY   it?"

And the kids would intone:   "How   do   you   say   WHAT"?

And the teacher would then choose one of many words regionally mispronounced on which to dwell.

It was all too much for most of us.

This reminds me of the entire driving test bit on Taxi:

What does a yellow light mean?

Slow down.

What    does    a    yellow    light    mean?

I spoke to DR Danise.  She sounds more relaxed, happier & hopeful.  The people she is living with love Sheena & the arrangement is working well.  Channel 28 said they might do some investigating.  Consumer affairs said she has a case if it has to go to court.  First they are going to work on him & see what they can accomplish. 

She thanks everyone for their concern & support.

I found this interesting & mentioned it to Keith.  He looked at me and sarcastically said "Thanks for telling me" His expression made me laugh.

That is very sad.  I hope she found a good job elsewhere.  My father had doctor friends who would do abortions.  I suspect my father also would have done it.

Jane, there's information on the Romper Room teacher on Wikipedia: her fetus had no legs and one arm.

Their story was also made into a movie: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0105176/

It seems her husband was fired from his job as a high school teacher.

And since it's been guessed at another site, I'll let the cat out of the bag and say that the new Kritzerland Limited Edition soundtrack, my holiest of grails, is Andre Previn's Two For The Seesaw - for me, one of my all-time favorite scores ever and one I'm completely addicted to and have been since it came out in the early 60s.  The history behind this first-ever CD release is really interesting.  The score features one of the best main themes ever, the gorgeous and sublime Second Chance.  Mr. Previn's scoring of this film is nothing short of brilliant.
