Eulle Gibbons on Eating Pine Trees I have been looking forever for the Eulle Gibbons commercial on eating pine trees. They pulled back in 1977 for fear of kids eating pine trees.

Vanishing TV Character - Spearchucker Jones Oliver Harmon (Spearchucker) Jones was a surgeon both in the movie and television series MASH. He was portrayed in the TV series by Timothy Brown. Jones was a tent-mate of fellow surgeons Hawkeye Pierce, Trapper John McIntyre, and Frank Burns. However, Spearchucker was shown during only the first five episodes of Season One (1972-73) before vanishing forever. What happened to Spearchucker? MASH's producers dropped him from the show after concluding they would not be able to write enough meaningful episodes for the character once they decided to mainly focus on Hawkeye and Trapper. Furthermore they were told there were no black surgeons assigned to MASH units during the Korean War. (Apparently that was inaccurate.)

Vanishing TV Character - Mike Douglas The family-based sitcom My Three Sons ran for 12 seasons on two networks from 1960 through 1972. Originally the widowed Steve Douglas' three sons in the sitcom's title were Mike, Robbie, and Chip. Tim Considine played eldest son Mike, a level-headed, responsible young man who could be counted on to keep his younger brothers in line. The show was shot in black and white for the first five seasons when it ran on ABC. In the fifth season, Tim meets Sally Morrison (played by the lovely Meredith MacRae), who works in the secretarial pool at his father's firm. They quickly develop a romance. However, at that time Considine's relationship with the producers of My Three Sons was fraying and he did not want to return for the show's sixth season in 1965. This obviously created a problem for a show about three sons. A solution was devised: Mike and Sally would be married and move away. The plot had Mike becoming an assistant psychology professor somewhere "back east"--even though the Douglases lived in Maryland. Considine and MacRae appeared in the opening few minutes of the first episode of the 1965-66 season--which also happened to be the show's first episode on CBS and the first one to be shot in color. The opening scene had the newly married couple leaving the church and accepting the congratulations and good wishes of the wedding guests. Mike takes his dad aside and lovingly thanks him for everything in his life. He gets into a car with his new bride--and leaves the show forever. Mike was only mentioned a couple of times thereafter even though My Three Sons ran for another seven years. Oh, yes: an orphaned friend of Chip's, Ernie, is adopted into the Douglas clan so that Steve again has three sons under his roof. Since the color episodes were the only ones widely circulated, many My Three Sons fans who were first exposed to the show in reruns often have little knowledge about Mike being one of Steve Douglas' sons.

Theme From The Bridge on the River Kwai The Bridge on the River Kwai won the Oscar for Best Picture of 1957. It also re-popularized "The Colonel Bogey March"--a British military song dating back to 1914. It is one of those melodies that sticks in your mind forever. In this scene from early in the film, a new batch of British Empire troops whistle the tune as they march into captivity in a brutal Japanese labor camp.

Big John Little John - Sitcom Flop Who recalls this sitcom dud? In the fall of 1976, NBC decided to move away from cartoons and create a sitcom for its Saturday morning audience. It was titled Big John, Little John. The show's premise was that 40-year-old middle school teacher John Martin, while vacationing in Florida, takes a small sip of water from a hidden pool--not realizing it is the fabled Fountain of Youth that Ponce de Leon once hoped to find. The effect was that 40-year-old John would unpredictably descend in age to a 12-year-old...and then return to being an adult again just as unpredictably. (According to the story, had John taken a large drink from the pool, he would have been 12 years old forever!) Herb Edelman played 40-year-old John. Robbie Rist (notorious for his role as Cousin Oliver on the Brady Bunch) played 12-year-old John. Joyce Bulifant played 'their' wife. Only 13 episodes were made. The last first-run episode aired just before Christmas 1976, but reruns were shown until September 1977. Here is the show's opening.

1987 Little League World Series Blowout Entering the final of the 1987 Little League World Series, the American champions from Irvine, CA had won 18 games in a row. Two of the wins were in the quarterfinals and semifinals of the single-elimination tourney by scores of 13-0 over Dover, NH and 8-1 versus Chesterfield, IN. Their opponents in the final would be the team from Hualien, Taiwan--a country that had dominated the tournament for years, crushing all opposition. Jim Palmer, doing commentary for ABC, opined that the Irvine team might have what it takes to beat the seemingly invincible Taiwanese team. It didn't work out that way. Irvine lost 21-1 in the most lopsided LLWS championship game ever. The game was so one-sided and was taking so long to complete that ABC terminated the broadcast so its affiliates could go to their scheduled local news programming. The relentless rout also persuaded the LLWS poobahs to adopt a mercy rule to prevent similar beatdowns in the future. Therefore Taiwan's record 20-run margin of victory is likely to stand forever.
