Super Encounter

Well, one of my dreams came true yesterday..we went to the CA State Fair to visit the Super Heroes Exhibit featuring DC Comics and their heroes: including Superman, Batman, his Batcar, Robin, Batgirl, Cat Woman, Green Lantern (I think?)..the highlight of the visit was to get an autographed photo of Superman's Lois Lane as well as a picture of her and myself..she was so cute, so dimunitive.she must have been a couple of inches under 5' tall (I'm not much taller than that!) Here's some pix

Wish I had those genes. She is so vivacious. Pretty lady.

I caught many a show, along with Flash Gordon, Commander Cody. Guess Sky King and Penny and L. Bridges in Sea Hunt weren't super heroes but I sure loved the action. Don't forget Rin Tin Tin! Yo Rinnie! and Lassie

Two of my favorite movies were the ones with Batman (Michael Keaton) and Cat Woman, (Michelle Pfeiffer) but the first with Jack Nichols was super too.

Don't remember watching Flash or Commander..I watched the original Mickey Mouse Club shows w/Annette, Spin and Marty.I loved the Hayley Mills Parent Trap movie and the Gidget ones w/Sandra Dee..and the cartoon Mighty Mouse..anyone remember crusader rabbit?

ditto

I remember Sky King and Penny too, and Sea Hunt and Rusty and Rin Tin Tin! and Lassie w/tommy rettig and jan (?) before Jon Provost and June Lockhart

I always liked Shirley Temple ...added some of her dvds to my collection..I remember my dad saying she came to Honolulu to visit during the War.

Today's super heroes and role models...as long as we have this super thread going and much of the old tv revisited I was wondering what the kids today watch. I don't watch a lot of tv these days with the rash of reality shows, abundance of crime drama, and so-called comedy sitcoms.

I loved Shirley Temple, Dagwood and Blondie, and Sherlock Holmes. Of course you had to watch Lucy, Andy Griffith, Dick Van Dyke, and the Honeymooners!

Guess that is another reason I love my Airstream, it takes me away to another place and time.

Oh man Sky King, Penny, Skyler, the Flying Crown Ranch, his Chrylser woody station wagon with the crown on the side, and his plane the Songbird. I loved that show.

If you remember that show that HBO had on a few years back called "Dream On"? The premise is this guy sat in front of 50's TV as a youngster, and everything that comes up in his life today gives him a flash back to a scene of a 50's TV show. I can't belive how much of that early TV is stuck in my 58 year old head. I'm almost ashamed that I can probably still sing all the words to the theme days songs that were on the old Mickey Mouse Club. Remember Circus Day, Anything Can Happen Day, Guest Star Day...oh lord it's all flashing before my eyes!

Sorry to say in this age of hi-tech stuff, there still lurks amongst us a dinosaur (namely me) who hasn't gotten onboard to cable tv, and probably will be stuck in the tar pits for a while..there are so many other types of media for me to be turned on to..oh well, I digress

I'm almost ashamed that I can probably still sing all the words to the theme days songs that were on the old Mickey Mouse Club. Remember Circus Day, Anything Can Happen Day, Guest Star Day...oh lord it's all flashing before my eyes!

Yes, I remember Tuesday, Guest Star Day,

Today is Tuesday, you know what that means,
We're gonna have a special guest,
So, get out the broom, and sweep the place clean,
And dust out the mat, so the welcome can be seen
Ra Ra Ra put on your mousecaps and wiggle your ears ..give up with a big hooray,..what's next?

While we're on reminiscing and flashbacks, let's go off on a tangent:

How many of you have ever been to a musical group/band concert showcasing 50's, 60's and 70's groups, and who have you seen and enjoyed?

I'll start with a few that I've seen:
Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Little Richard all together on stage
Little Anthony and the Imperials,
Glen Barry,
the Rascals,
Shirelles,
The 5th Dimension,
The Platters,

I just had a flashback:

Here's the rest as I remembered:
Roll out the carpet, strike up the band,
and give out(?) with a hip hooray(hip hooray)
Wiggle your ears like good mouseketeers,
We're gonna present our guest today
'Cause Tuesday is Guest Star Day..does that sound right?

My favorite cowgirl was Annie Oakley!!!!!! played by Gail Davis..I loved that she really was a geniune trick rider and a sharp shooter too!..when we went to Wyoming, we stopped at the Buffalo Bill Cody Museum complex..have you ever been there???my, my I went back there 2wice and spent about 4 hours just going through the different buildings and exhibits..

Funny thing too, while watching an Andy Griffith episode shortly after we returned to Sacramento, I saw an episode of Andy's girlfirend who could shoot all 25 clay pidgeons!..turns out that was Gail Davis!

Here are my cousins Ken and Bonnie getting up close to Roy and Dale.
I loved Roy Rogers and Dale Evans (loved the song Happy Trails too)..got to see their museum in Victorville just before they moved it to Branson, Missouri..in fact we stayed w/our Safari at a KOA..one of the worst campgrounds situated right next to a RR track..noisy, noisy, noisy..

They can't believe they never heard of this great cartoon before.
