Vanishing TV Character - Warren Ferguson For five memorable seasons of The Andy Griffith Show, Don Knotts superbly played Barney Fife, sheriff Andy Taylor's well-intentioned but inept deputy. Deputy Fife was such a beloved character that anyone who attempted to replace him would have a difficult task. Knotts opted to pursue a movie career at the end of the 1964-65 TV season and left the TAGS cast. His replacement was comedian Jack Burns who was cast as deputy Warren Ferguson. Ferguson was the nephew of town barber Floyd Lawson. He was a recent graduate of a police academy who zealously enforced Mayberry's statutes. (In one episode he raided a ladies' club bingo game.) Ferguson is best remembered for his grating habit of punctuating his monologues with the word "Huh?". He was also bungling, but nowhere near as popular as Barney Fife. After just 11 episodes, deputy Ferguson vanished without explanation. He was never seen or even mentioned again. Sheriff Taylor never had another regular deputy throughout the rest of the series (which ended in 1968).

Howard Unruh - Camden NJ Mass Murderer On Tuesday, September 6, 1949, 28-year-old Howard Unruh shot and killed 13 people in Camden, NJ in a space of just 12 minutes. Three other victims suffered non-fatal wounds. The calm demeanor Unruh showed during shootings came to be known as "Camden's Walk of Death." Unruh, a decorated Second World War combat veteran, was a closet homosexual who believed he was the target of malicious gossip. The previous evening a date had failed to meet him at a local movie theater for a late-night screening. An angry Unruh stayed to watch the movie by himself and arrived home at about 3 a.m. to find that a fence he had erected between his house and his neighbor's adjacent lot to resolve a property dispute had been taken down, further aggravating him. Later that morning, Unruh suddenly snapped at his mother (whom he lived with) during breakfast. He chased her out of the house. At 9:20 a.m. Unruh proceeded on his murderous rampage through nearby businesses on River Road. With deadly accuracy, Unruh shot customers and proprietors randomly at a barber shop, a tailor shop, a shoe-repair shop and a pharmacy. Some luckless bystanders were gunned down in their cars while stopped at intersections. The youngest of Unruh's victims was just two years old. The toddler was killed as he looked out of an apartment window. When Unruh ran out of ammunition, he made his way back home and awaited his fate. Incredibly he spoke calmly, politely and amicably on the telephone to a local newspaper reporter while he awaited arrest. Unruh was shot in the leg by an armed citizen during his rampage but seemed oblivious to his wound. He was judged to be insane and thus not fit to stand trial under New Jersey law. He was held in a mental institution for more than 60 years before dying in 2009 at the age of 88. Hardly remorseful, in his last known interview Unruh said he would have happily killed thousands of people had he had the opportunity.

Ernest Borgnine-Ethel Merman Failed Marriage On June 27, 1964, 47-year-old Hollywood star Ernest Borgnine and 56-year-old stage star Ethel Merman were wed. However, within five weeks they had separated. Within five months they were divorced. What went so terribly wrong? According to an interview Borgnine gave late in his life, an overseas honeymoon was a disaster. Everyone recognized the Oscar-winning Hollywood actor, but few recognized Merman whose fame did not generally extend into Europe. Merman became upset by this and took out her anger on her new husband. The two began fighting...and that was the end of the couple's brief union. In Merman's autobiography she devoted a chapter to her marriage to Borgnine. It consisted of one blank page.

1960s Sugar Ad You definitely won't see anything like this today. An advert tells moms to give their daughters lots of sugar to combat the daily fatigue that comes with being an active girl. (It's from the mid-1960s; I can tell by the allusion to the Beatles' hair.)

Vanishing TV Character- Larry Mondello Robert (Rusty) Stevens played Larry Mondello in 67 episodes of the first three seasons of Leave It To Beaver between 1957 and 1960. That meant he appeared in approximately 2/3 of those 102 shows. Larry was Beaver's best buddy. Good-natured, obese, but not the brightest kid on the planet, Larry often led Beaver into various messes. We never saw Larry's father, but his harried mother (played by Madge Blake) was constantly threatening Larry with the consequences of his iron-fisted pop laying down the law on him once he got home from another business trip. After the 1959-60 season, however, Larry just vanished from the sitcom. According to some reports, Rusty Stevens' father took a job in Pennsylvania. Thus the Stevens family was suddenly uprooted from California, which effectively ended Rusty's TV career. However, a few reports--including comments made by Barbara Billingsley (who played June Cleaver) late in her life--indicate that Stevens' mother was an insufferable stage mom whose presence and antics rankled the producers. Eventually the brains behind the show had had enough of her and decided abruptly to drop Larry Mondello from the show.
