George Foreman Regains Title at 45 George Foreman was an intimidating bruiser when he won the world heavyweight title by demolishing Joe Frazier in 1973. He surprisingly lost the crown to Muhammad Ali in Zaire in 1974. By 1977 Foreman was out of boxing and was making a living preaching in Texas. With funds getting a little low, Foreman made what many fans thought was a crazy comeback in 1987 at age 38. Much slower than he had been in his prime, Foreman could still hit with great power, though. Now a fan favorite because of his new likable persona, Foreman had a series of comeback wins. He lost a title try to Evander Holyfield in 1991 at age 42. Three years later he was given another shot against new champion Michael Moorer. Trailing badly on the scorecards entering the tenth round, the 45-year-old Foreman shocked the world with an historic knockout blow, as this clip shows. Listen to Jim Lampley's succinct call: "It happened! It happened!" Also listen to the excited, joyous cheering of the pro-Foreman crowd when Moorer hits the deck. It ranks as one of the magical moments in sports history.

TV Flop - Chuck Barris Rah-Rah Show Despite Chuck Barris and NBC constantly clashing over the content of The Gong Show, the network was desperate for any prime-time hit in the late 1970s. Therefore, in early 1978, the zany Barris was permitted to create and host The Chuck Barris Rah-Rah Show--an hour-long variety program that featured guest appearances by celebrities and encore performances by some of the more memorable oddball acts from The Gong Show. Few people saw it as it was scheduled on Tuesdays from 8 to 9 p.m--directly against the two most popular TV shows in America at the time: Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley. It was cancelled in April after eight episodes had aired. Noel Holsten, the Orlando Sentinel-Star's TV critic, wrote, "[Barris] reeled around the stage as though he'd been gobbling hallucinogenic mushrooms and looking somewhat like a subterranean fungus." Barris accepted Holsten's bad review with cheerfulness: He read it during an episode of The Gong Show. (The Gong Show was booted off NBC in June.) Here's a brief promo for the February 28 premiere episode of the Rah-Rah Show.

Cheers - Final Scene On May 20, 1993--after 11 excellent seasons--the terrific sitcom Cheers went off the air. The plot of the final show reunited the intellectual Diane Chambers and the unrefined Sam Malone after six years of separation. The two were supposed to marry (for the umpteenth time) but Sam calls off the wedding at the last minute and returns to his comfort zone--his beloved bar. Barfly Norm cryptically tells him he cannot be unfaithful to his one true love, but Sam (never the brightest penny in the jar) doesn't quite make the connection.

Cheers - Frederick Speaks My favorite Cheers moment: In a memorable ninth-season episode, Frasier and Lillith are concerned that their 11-month-old son Frederick hasn't yet spoken his first word. They jointly agree that their toddler needs proper intellectual stimulation--but Frasier takes him to the bar anyway. When Lillith discovers Frasier and Frederick at Cheers, Frederick dramatically says his first word!

Schoolhouse Rock - Elbow Room From the award-winning Schoolhouse Rock series, here is Elbow Room from 1975. There is no way this cartoon would air today. Why? There is a bible shown and American westward expansion is cheerfully and unapologetically celebrated.

Bill Clinton Dies Onstage (Booed) In 1988, then-governor of Arkansas William Jefferson Clinton made his national debut at the Democratic Convention when he endorsed Michael Dukakis for the nomination. Unfortunately, it was a very long speech that got cheers when he finally ended.

Tragic Child Actress Judith Barsi Judith Barsi was a prolific child actress who appeared in at least 72 commercials and a handful of movies and TV shows before her horrifying death at age 10 in 1988. Barsi was spotted by a talent scout at a skating rink when she was nearly six years old. He mistook her for a three-year-old. Extremely tiny for her age, she was able to play much younger roles. At age 10 she was only 3'8" tall. Excellent at understanding precisely what directors wanted from her, Barsi appeared in commercials advertising McDonald's restaurants, peanut butter, orange juice, potato chips, soup, and dolls. It is estimated that she was earning close to $100,000 a year from her acting gigs. Fans of the sitcom Cheers will recall Barsi playing the role of a new bartender's adorable little daughter in a 1986 episode titled Relief Bartender (see photo). One of Barsi's last projects was providing the voice of Ducky in the 1988 animated film The Land Before Time. Barsi's home life was a nightmare: Her father, Jozsef, had fled communist Hungary. He was a violent alcoholic who mentally and physically abused Judith and her mother Maria, who was also refugee from Hungary. Judith had told fellow actors that her father had threatened to kill her on several occasions. On July 25, 1988, Barsi was shot to death by her father while she slept in the family's Los Angeles home. He also killed his wife. He stayed with the bodies for two days before burning them and turning his gun on himself. Barsi was supposed to audition for another role on the day she was murdered.

Failed Spinoff - The Tortellis In the early seasons of Cheers, some of the funniest episodes centered around the antics of Nick Tortelli, the sleazy ex-husband of Cheers barmaid Carla. Played by Dan Hedaya, Nick was a TV repairman who eventually married ex-showgirl Loretta (played by Jean Kasem and described by Total Television as "statuesque but dippy"). NBC figured the duo of Nick and Loretta had the potential to be comedy gold, so in January 1987 they were given their own sitcom titled The Tortellis. The show's premise was that Nick and his trophy wife had already split up and Loretta had returned to Las Vegas. They reconcile in the pilot episode and remain in Nevada in a crowded household. The couple lived with Nick's oldest son and his teenage wife--and Nick's pragmatic sister and her young son. The show never caught on, despite occasional special appearances by Cheers cast members. The Tortellis was dropped by NBC after the 13th episode aired on May 12, 1987 less than four months after its debut. Nick and Loretta made one more appearance on Cheers in which it was explained that Nick's TV repair business had failed.
