Russ, those don't look like the Jujubes I remember.
Yeah, they’ve gone through a number of different manufacturers / brand names over the years.
As I’ve gotten older, I’m convinced that not since Jesus turned ditchwater into muscatel has anything remained the same.
Not necessarily. "Breaking the fourth wall" can mean anything that involves the actors being aware that they're in a movie/play/TV show. For example, if Roscoe were to say to Kookie, "This is the silliest episode we've ever done," that would qualify, even though they're not acknowledging our presence. One of my favorite instances of this came on an episode of BOSTON LEGAL, when two new regulars arrived in the season's third episode. When they introduced themselves as such, Shatner retorted, "Nonsense! If you were the new people you'd have been here on the season premiere."
Thanks, Mike, for the clarification. Just when I think I know stuff, I find myself learning more. I'd like to think I'm a well-read guy, but there's plenty more for me to devour.
If one can consider libraries as kitchens of knowledge, then I am but a short order cook.
Yea - well all I can do is microwave.
Or as Karl Kolchak would say, "137 luscious pounds"
This is the Jujubes I remember, although this box is a little before my time, and the actual candies were not nearly so vibrantly-colored. I recall their tasting like a combination of fruit and hairspray. But one would last for at least an hour, and I was always looking to make my candy investments pay off. After all, nickels didn't grow on trees.
I had a nickel tree in my backyard once, but lightening struck it. Turned into a pile of pennies. I planted some, but no luck as yet.
Well, I know something doesn't grow on trees. I thought it was nickels.
I wish there was such a thing as a martini tree. I would be harvesting daily.
You are so right. I hate MAD in color. It's NOT the same magazine.
This is the funniest single thing I've ever seen in MAD Magazine, from 1966:
I'm so glad you're feeling better. your reviews usually make me laugh.
Season 6 I can't stand. Then, I don't know whether this is my least favorite next after all of season 6 or one where it is hinted at maybe General Eisenhower is on vacation at a golf resort in the desert & he gets kidnapped.They are both sooooo slow.
I think S5 Ep 8 is titled "Walk Among Tigers" is aptly titled. Isn't there a saying: Tigers of Industry. Tiger is defined in Webster's dictionary:" a ferocious, blood thirsty person." A Tiger in symbolism represents will power, personal strength, & courage. The theme here is of espionage, being both industrial & foreign. Then, you add into this context, the back story of world events, such as the Cold War, the build up of the War in Vietnam, the Bay of Pigs,the building of the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis,etc.
The "Davy Crockett's Almanac" website has posted a complete 77 SUNSET STRIP comic book story.
Thanks for the tip, John! It was quite a fun read. I noticed that in the story, Jeff gets an upgrade to a sky-blue T-Bird. Also, in the first panel, I notice that the first three letters in the "Madville" sign Kookie is standing in front of replicate the original logo for MAD Magazine.
A few quick notes on S2E33 “Perfect Setup,” next airing this coming Friday morning. . .
It is one of the “W. Hermanos” episodes, produced during an extended writer’s strike. Although these episodes have a bad reputation among fans of WB’s television shows of the time, I think that Los Hermanos Warner acquitted themselves pretty well in the case of 77 Sunset Strip. Then again, the show has only four such episodes; Bourbon Street Beat, on the other hand, has ten.
All the W. Hermanos episodes have their origin in a previously-produced script. The origin for “Perfect Setup” is an episode of Maverick, S1E2 “Point Blank,” which is in fact the show’s pilot episode. This is why Roy Huggins gets a story credit.
Of course, this episode gets my particular attention because it’s directed by Montgomery Pittman, but because of the strike he really couldn’t work in any Pittmanisms. However, Monty liked to put the guitar in Jeff’s hands, and this episode features several musical outings, most notably a duet with Cricket (Connie Stevens) on the plane to Hawaii.
Oh, did I mention it’s a Hawaiian Eye crossover?
This is a fun episode all around. You get Warren Stevens in a very likable role, plus you get Paul Bryar, whom I’m always glad to see. For you fans of the group Little Feat, Bryar (real name Gabriel Paul Barrere) is the father of their guitarist, Paul Barrere.
One of my favorite episodes too for the reasons you mentioned and because Joyce Meadows is in it.
