Skip to comments."CHATSWORTH OSBORNE, JR.": RUSH LIMBAUGH SHOW TODAY
Posted on 11/24/2004 6:40:07 PM PST by Captain Peter Blood
I was listening to the Rush Limbaugh Show today and heard Rush start talking about last night's Crossfire Show.
I was only half way paying attention when he mentioned a question by Chatsworth Osborne, Jr..
Well I had to think a minute because I knew that name from someplace and then all of a sudden it came to me that it was a character on the old Dobie Gillis show and was played by a very fine character actor named Stephen Franken.
The it hit me that Rush was using that moniker for our old friend Tucker Carlson. Well that fit could not be better. Tucker really has a number of the charactistics of that old Dobie Gillis character and I have say I laughed until I fell on the floor.
That was almost as much fun as when Rush rechristened Wesley Clark into General Ashley Wilkes from "Gone With The Wind". That also was just perfect.
Just checked on the IMDB and Stephen Franken is still with us and working.
By the way how could anyone have ever been in love with Zelda Gilroy even on a good night???????????????
Ashley wilks was only a major
They also had Maynard G. Krebbs........... and the statue, The Thinker!
I last saw Steve Franken in a minor role in "The Missouri Breaks", an Arthur Penn film with Marlon Brando giving a grotesque performance an as Irish "regulator".
Not Aphrodite. Thalia Menninger.
Is Steve Franken any relation to Stuart Smalley?
Don't forget Chatsworth's "Mummsy" played I believe by Doris Packer. She always referred to Chatsworth as "such a nasty boy." Beatty played Milton Armitage, a less amusing rich kid. Also, William Schallert played Mr. Pomfritt, their high school teacher. Frank Faylen was Herbert T. Gillis, and Florida Friebus was Winnie Gillis. Herbert always used to talk about his "good conduct medal." Also would always say about Dobie "Someday I gotta kill that boy, I just gotta." Wonderful show.
Hey Dobe, want to go watch them tear down the old Endicott Building?
Bill Schallert later went on to fame with Patty Duke's show and even the "Nancy Drew" show in the late 70's. Warren Beatty hit the jackpot with "Bonny and Clyde".
I thought he said once it stood for Walter. Maybe it kept changing. He also was hip enough to be listening to Thelonius Monk. Like, hi, Mr. G, Mrs. G., Dobe G.
I gotta kill that boy! I just gotta!
And watch "The Monster That Devoured Cleveland".
Yep. He and Patty were also both SAG Presidents. Another irony is that Jean Byron, who played the mother on "The Patty Duke Show," also briefly played one of Dobie's high school teachers. The small world of the sitcom.
