    This was a very Spy Magazine post. I applaud you for it. But I'm not sure if you ever read it. If not, it was one of the most brilliant magazines ever - Mad Magazine for adults. Sadly it's gone.

    Well, the Jack Cassidy thing is a dead giveaway. They all burned to death in bed, right?

    Rats. I was going to say they all had normal-sized ears without hair on them, but then I got to Abe Vigoda.

    Jeez...and I actually saw this thing the first time it aired. I guess I was too wrapped up in Bernadette and Lynda to remember everyone else.

    They all had sex with Wilt Chamberlain?

    Some Guy said...

    S.D.- I'd say yowza is appropriate.

    Grant- I think I remember seeing it a few times back in the day.

    Kirby- Contrary to popular belief, Abe Vigoda is still kickin'. Thanks for stopping by!

    Cooper- Abe is always the spoiler, huh?

    Beth- Rosey also guested on an episode of The Brady Bunch.

    Cheer- No, no, and no. Thanks for playing!

    WP- Lynda Carter in sequined spandex on the trapeze. Does it get any better?

    DMVM- I first saw her in "8-1/2". Then again in "Fitzcarraldo". I need to see "Once Upon A Time In The West".

    Mo- True dat.

    Evil Genius- Creating the image of Wilt and Abe Vigoda gettin' it on truly is evil. And genius.

    Excellent question, I'd never have figured it out. And I watched it.

    "WP- Lynda Carter in sequined spandex on the trapeze. Does it get any better?"

    Now that we live in the era of the big screen TV and the rewind button? Absolutely not.
