I’m gathering items for a virtual prize for Mel at Stirrup Queens. In it will be a Dr Demento 8-track, a pair of Dittos jeans, and a videocassette of Saturday Night Fever. Also, a recording of my parents yelling, “Make sure you come in when the streetlights come on!”
Earlier this week I invited you to play Childhood Trivia with me. With only bare-bones clues, Mel got the answer I was looking for. Here’s where things stand so you can test your wits: it’s a TV show from the 70s. It’s not Golden Girls, any Cosby show (including Fat Albert), Dukes of Hazzard, CHiPs, or The Gong Show. Adding the remaining clues:
Clue #1: buzz
Clue #2: phenomenon
Clue #3: PBS
Clue #4: Fannee Doolee
and my personal favorite, Clue #5: Bernadette
Mel correctly guessed Zoom. I loved this show. I loved when it was time to roll out the barrel. I loved the Zoom Phenomenon. I had the hots for David, and I have used Bernadette’s “arm thing” to temporarily tame more than one classroom of kids.
For some nostalgia, click on the short clips below. I enjoyed our play date!
