R. I. P VAN WILLIAMS



The Green Hornet TV series is not on DVD, but can be found on YouTube (for now).  Here is a sample episode as the Green Hornet (Van Williams) and Kato (Bruce Lee) face off against Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane.  EXTRA TRIVIA: Van Williams was the voice of the President (LBJ) in Our Man Flint and Batman The Movie.

WHAT DID MATTEL'S SOMERSAULTY THE CLOWN DOLL SAY?



This is a Mattel Somersaulty the Clown pull string doll. I had one just like this when I was a child. I had a hard time understanding what he said. He was supposed to say, "Do you want to see me do a somersault?" However, it always sounded more like "Do you want to see me suck soapy water?" True story.

NOTE: I had used this anecdote as part of a post on the original blog. I decided to delete that post, but this anecdote made me laugh so hard, I decided to use it in a post here since it had to do with a retro toy of the 70s. Hope you enjoy it.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING FROM DESDINOVA!



This found photo from the early 70s wins the Internet for Thanksgiving 2016. IS THAT A HAND SAW?

As always click to enlarge. Sorry this was kind of a lazy post.

R. I. P. ROBERT VAUGHN


Here is the obit from NBC NEWS. Here is a post I made about why I prefer The Man from UNCLE to 24.   I obtained these photos, from the pilot episode, earlier this summer.

The man on the left was their boss in the pilot. NBC said told them to "get rid of the foreign guy." Later NBC came back and said "We meant the wimpy blonde Russian."
