Thunderbirds Jerry & Sylvia Anderson created this kids show, way back in 1960's and in my opinion, were way ahead of the times. As a kid watching these I used to get annoyed that they were in colour and we only had black & white. Not a thing you see every day SUPERMARIONATION makes you wonder if a certain plumber got his title here? You'll tell me, I know you will and watch out for those strings. Call for International Rescue.

Drug testing didn't catch her, but Jones later admitted to doping and returned her five Olympic medals from Sydney. On January 11, 2008 she was sentenced to six months in the sneezer for lying under oath.

Thomas Ince Scandal 1924 One of Hollywood's most enduring and juicy scandals occurred on November 19, 1924. On that date producer/director Thomas Ince died suddenly on The Oneida, William Randolph Hearst's luxury yacht. Ince and several other celebrities were aboard the boat for a belated get-together for Ince's 42nd birthday. The official police report says Ince died of a heart attack. However, most Hollywood historians think the truth was more sinister. For years stories circulated that Ince had been shot to death by a jealous and enraged Hearst. One version has Ince getting way too friendly with Hearst's mistress, Marion Davies. Another version has Charlie Chaplin getting caught in the act with Marion--and Ince being accidentally shot by Hearst with a bullet meant for Chaplin. Chaplin's secretary stated she saw Ince being carried out of the yacht with a bullet hole in his head. The first edition of the next day's Los Angeles Times declared that Ince had been shot to death. Later editions of the newspaper had all references to gunplay expunged--an indication of how powerful Hearst was. Ince's body was quickly cremated, eliminating any chance his remains could be exhumed. Louella Parsons, a small-time entertainment writer from New York, was also aboard The Oneida. Immediately after this incident, she became a star writer in Hearst's syndicated newspaper chain. Was she rewarded for maintaining her silence about what happened on The Oneida that fateful day?

Curious Death of President Harding 1923 On the evening of August 2, 1923, Warren G. Harding, the 29th president of the United States, died suddenly in a room at the Palace Hotel in San Francsico. He was 57 years old. Harding was in the midst of a west coast trip, but he had taken ill as his train rolled through Seattle. Almost immediately, the rumors surrounding his passing began. There was no official cause of Harding's death. Some sources claim it was a fatal case of food poisoning; others claim it was a heart attack or a stroke. Despite his wife and his nurses being frequently in and out of the room, the time of Harding's death could not be pinned down any more specifically than between 7 and 7:30 p.m. Florence Harding had her husband's body embalmed and ready for a funeral train back to Washington within an hour of the president's death, thus no autopsy could be performed. (California had no mandatory autopsy laws at the time.) Although Harding was a perfect candidate for poor health--he was a heavy smoker and drinker, plagued by stress, who rarely exercised--there are those who think Mrs. Harding had something to do with her husband's demise. According to the conspiracy theorists, Mrs. Harding either wanted to spare Warrren G. the shame of the scandals about his administration that were soon to surface--or she took revenge over her hubby's numerous extra-marital trysts. Those who don't think anything was amiss point to Harding's declining health at the hands of a quack homeopathic physician and Harding's generally poor living habits. Maybe Harding himself sensed the end was near: Before leaving for the west coast, Harding had written a new will. He had also curiously sold the Marion (OH) Star, his hometown newspaper, which he had bought with the intent of running it after he retired from politics.

Original Howdy Doody Puppet The Howdy Doody Show was one of the most iconic, popular, and enduring kids' programs ever. When it first aired in 1947, however, star marionette Howdy Doody looked far different than he did for most of the show's run. In this NBC publicity photo, Howdy is the puppet on the far right. Why the change? By 1948 the show had become so popular that merchandisers were clamoring to sell Howdy Doody paraphernalia. Macy's Department Store was especially eager to carry any and all Howdy Doody merchandise. This presented a major ownership problem: Buffalo Bob Smith had used the unmistakable Howdy Doody voice for years (beginning on the radio) and owned the rights to the character, but the puppet was created for TV by Frank Paris. No agreement could be worked out between Smith and Paris, so one day, about four hours before a live broadcast, Paris walked out of the NBC studio and took his puppet with him. The producers came up with a quick and brilliant gimmick to explain Howdy Doody's absence. Howdy had gone on a nation-wide road trip to campaign in the 1948 election! A large map of the USA showed viewers where Howdy had travelled during his absence from the show. Furthermore, it was announced that Howdy was undergoing plastic surgery to look better in his public appearances. This gave NBC's Velma Dawson plenty of time to create a totally different--but more familiar--Howdy Doody marionette that was used until the show ended in 1960. The new, more appealing Howdy Doody was an immediate hit. Apparently nobody missed Paris' original marionette too much. Smith himself declared it to be "the ugliest puppet imaginable."

Marion Parker Murder - 1927 Fair warning: This story is unsettling. One of the most brutal crimes in American history was the kidnapping and murder of 12-year-old schoolgirl Marion Parker. On Thursday, December 15, 1927 a young man appeared at Mount Vernon Junior High School in Los Angeles claiming to be an associate of Perry Parker, a prominent local banker. The man coolly told the school's registrar that the banker had been seriously injured in a car accident and had requested to speak to his daughter. There were actually twin Parker sisters enrolled in the school--Marion and Marjorie. By chance the registrar fetched Marion who rode off with the man. He was later identified as 19-year-old William Edward Hickman. The Parker family became alarmed when Marion did not return from school. Shortly thereafter they received a ransom note and phone calls from the kidnapper asking for $1500 in gold certificates in exchange for Marion's safe return. One attempt by Marion's father to pay the ransom was thwarted when Hickman spotted police detectives lurking nearby. Another meeting time was secretly arranged by Hickman and Marion's father on December 17 where the money was given to a man in a parked car. Perry Parker saw his daughter wrapped in a blanket slumped in the back seat with her eyes open. At gunpoint the ransom was paid and the driver pushed the girl onto the street and drove away. Marion's father was horrified to find that his daughter was dead. Her eyelids had been sewn open to give the illusion that she was alive. Worse, her head had been severed, her arms and legs had been cut off and she had been disemboweled. (The missing limbs were found the next day in a city park.) The ghastly crime spawned the largest manhunt in southern California's history, one that included 20,000 volunteers. A reward of $100,000 was offered for the capture of the culprit. Several clues, including the discovery of the stolen car used on the night of the money exchange, led to Hickman being named as the key suspect. He was eventually arrested in Echo, OR after spending some of the gold certificates there. Hickman had been a former employee at Parker's bank and had been fired for embezzlement in a forged check scam. He served prison time for the crime. The fingerprint records from the embezzlement charge were used to match those found on the stolen car from the kidnapping. Hickman willingly told police in graphic detail that he had decided to kill Marion because she had discovered his name. She had only been dead about 12 hours before the money exchange. Hickman said he had choked her with a towel to make her unconscious and then began his dismemberment while she was still alive. Hickman--who said he intended to use the $1500 to pay his tuition to attend a bible college!--hoped to avoid the gallows by claiming insanity. He was one of the first defendants in California to try that ploy after it had become an acceptable legal defense. It failed when a fellow prisoner claimed Hickman had asked his advice on how to appear crazy. A jury rejected Hickman's insanity defense in February 1928. Hickman was executed at San Quentin Prison eight months later on October 19. His hand-written confession is on display at the Los Angeles Police Museum. Marion Parker's ghost is said to occupy her former house.

Chuck Cunningham Vanishes When Happy Days debuted in 1974, there were three Cunningham children: Joanie, Richie, and Chuck. Chuck, the eldest, was supposed to be a mentoring-type, college-age big brother to middle child Richie. The jockish Chuck's roles were small--so small that few viewers noticed that two different actors (Gavan O'Herlihy, shown in the photo; and Randolph Roberts) were cast as Chuck. By 1975, when the show went to live tapings and Fonzie became Richie's mentor, Chuck was simply dropped from the show with no explanation. He was only mentioned in one episode after the first season--and that was a flashback episode where his presence had to be explained. Several times in later episodes, Howard and Marion Cunningham both refer to having just two children. Tom Bosley, who played Howard, liked to joke in interviews that Chuck had 'accepted a full scholarship at the University of Outer Mongolia.'
