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.
Hee hee. The only film that ever seemed to be showing. I don't recall ever seeing Maynard's parents, but I could be wrong on that one.
I am a young thang, after all......:^)
Of course? I'm in my mid 40s, and I don't recall ever seeing that show. And yes, I grew up
inside a metropolitan area, and got channels from another "market" as well.
No problem. Your accuracy ratio is still much higher than mine!! Remember there was a brief period when Dobie and Maynard were in the Army? I don't think that lasted more than a few episodes.
I dunno. I think he hit the jackpot with Annette Bening.
The novel DOBIE GILLIS was written by the very funny Max Shulman.
The show ran from the late 50s to the early 60s, so you are too young to remember the first run. It was on CBS, I am pretty sure. I'm singing the theme song, but it probably isn't doing you much good.
"Zelda Gilroy" turned out to be a lesbian Cali legislator.
And the official title was "The Many Loves Of Dobie Gillis."
Whoops! Missed your post (re: Zelda).
Tuesday Weld. Man did I have a crush on her.
"Bonnie and Clyde" was his second film. His first was the very strange "Mickey One", directed by Arthur Penn, where he co-starred with Hurd Hatfield, who had been MGM's pretty boy back in the Forties.
My memory is failing me here.
Is she any kind of dreamboat at all?
Hiya Pub -- here are the lyrics:
Oh Dobie, wants a girl who is dreamy,
Dobie, wants a girl who's creamy,
Dobie, wants a girl to call his own.
Is she blond, is she tall, is she dark, is she small, Is she any kinda dreamboat at all
No matter, he's hers and hers alone.
Cause Dobie only wants a gal to call his own.
And Dwayne Hickman got his start as Bob Cummings' nephew in "Love That Bob".
You are more than welcome. We are really dating ourselves here. Wish I could watch an episode right now. Do you recall that Dwayne Hickman's brother Darryl was on the show "Love That Bob"? Probably shouldn't start a "Leave It To Beaver" thread right here, should we?
Crossed in the mail. Was that Dwayne? What show was Darryl on?
