Peter Puck - Episode 1 Peter Puck was a Hanna-Barbera Production that appeared on hockey telecasts in Canada (on Hockey Night in Canada) and on NBC's Sunday telecasts in 1974. The likable animated rubber disk was used to educate neophytes to hockey about the game's rules. (Why this was necessary in Canada is anybody's guess!) Ronnie Schell provided Peter's voice. Here's the first of nine episodes that were made.

Jim Stafford - My Girl Bill From 1974, Jim Stafford gives a live performance of his quirky song My Girl Bill on British TV. This song actually got to number 12 on the US charts and number seven in Canada. From my experience listening to oldies stations, it's rarely heard nowadays. When My Girl Bill was first released, some radio stations banned it for promoting homosexuality. It doesn't, of course, as the last stanza explains.

1975 Sitcom Flop - The Montefuscos NBC was struggling to come up with a successful sitcom in 1975--and they failed again with The Montefuscos. The premise of the show was that three generations of an Italian-American family would gather each Sunday night for dinner at the home of the family patriarch and matriarch. Critics hated the show. One referred to it as "The Monte-Fiascos." Others objected to what they perceived as blatant ethnic sterotyping. Audiences didn't think much of it either. It could not compete with the competition opposite it on CBS (The Waltons) or on ABC (Barney Miller). The Montefuscos was axed after just eight episodes. Here's a three-minute network preview of the first episode of the short-lived series.

National Lampoon 1970 -1998 National Lampoon was an irreverent, ground-breaking American humor magazine. Its success led to a wide range of media productions associated with the magazine's brand name. The magazine ran from 1970 to 1998. It was originally a spinoff of the Harvard Lampoon. The magazine reached its height of popularity and critical acclaim during the 1970s, when it had a far-reaching effect on American humor. It spawned films, radio, live theatre, various kinds of recordings, and print products including books. Many members of the creative staff from the magazine went on to contribute to successful media of all types. During the magazine's most successful years, parody of every kind was a mainstay; surrealist content was also central to its appeal. Almost all the issues included long text pieces, shorter written pieces, a section of actual news items (dubbed "True Facts"), cartoons and comic strips. Most issues also included "Foto Funnies" or fumetti, which often featured nudity. The result was an unusual mix of intelligent, cutting-edge wit, and crass, bawdy frat house jesting. National Lampoon's humor often pushed far beyond the boundaries of what was generally considered appropriate and acceptable. Co-founder Henry Beard described the experience years later: "There was this big door that said, 'Thou shalt not.' We touched it, and it fell off its hinges." The magazine declined during the late 1980s and never recovered. It was kept alive minimally. (In 1992, for instance, only one issue was published.) It ceased publication altogether in 1998.

Avery Brundage Avery Brundage was the only American ever to become president of the International Olympic Committee--a position he held from 1952 to 1972. He was also the most controversial IOC head. Brundage had competed at the 1912 Stockholm Olympics in the decathlon and pentathlon. He later acquired significant wealth from his contruction company combined with some shrewd investments. His vast fortune skewed his views of amateurism. Since he was independently wealthy, he could not see why every other amateur athlete could not be self-sufficient too. As a result, Brundage believed the only true athletes were amateurs. He denounced pro athletes as entertainers. Brundage rose to become head of the United States Olympic Committee by 1936. That year he controversially allowed the American team to compete in the Berlin Olympics despite heavy public pressure to boycott the Nazi-themed Games. He personally disqualified one notable female American athlete, swimmer Eleanor Holm, for allegedly engaging in immoral behavior on the team's ocean voyage to Hamburg. (Years later Holm claimed she had rebuffed the married Brundage's advances and he suspended her out of spite.) After the 1936 Games, Brundage openly praised Nazi Germany's economic resurgence and newfound national pride. By 1952 he became head of the IOC and a staunch defender of pure amateur sports, saying that the ideal Olympian should be a Renaissance person with many interests--not just the financial benefits of being a pro athlete. Critics labelled him "Slavery Avery." Despite being anti-communist, Brundage was impressed by the Soviet Union's national physical fitness programs and was instrumental in getting the USSR into the Olympic movement. Brundage was still at the helm of the IOC at age 85 in 1972 when a terrorist attack killed 11 Israeli team members. Brundage called for a day of mourning and then insisted the Games continue-- a decision still controversial today. In one of his final public speeches as IOC head, Brundage favored abolishing the Winter Olympics because of their growing commercialization. He died in 1975.
