Joanie Loves Chachi Joanie Loves Chachi was a sitcom spun off from Happy Days in March 1982. Happy Days was already well in decline by that point, so ABC was somewhat desperate to milk any residual life from the romance of Joanie Cunningham and Chachi Arcola. The premise of this show was that Joanie and Chachi uproot from Milwaukee to form a rock band in Chicago. They move in with Chachi's mother, Louisa, who had recently married Al Delvecchio--the proprietor of Arnold's in Milwaukee! Joanie Loves Chachi ran for four weeks in the spring of 1982 as a "tryout sitcom" and finished in the top seven shows. (Critics point out it ran against very weak rerun opposition on the other networks.) However, when Joanie Loves Chachi returned as a full sitcom in ABC's fall lineup for 1982, it quickly dropped to a dismal 68th spot in the ratings. No further new shows were aired after December 1982, although reruns occasionally appeared on ABC until Spetember 1983. Of course, Joanie, Chachi and Al all curiously returned to Milwaukee and the cast of Happy Days to finish its final season. Here is the opening sequence of Joanie Loves Chachi--which ran for nearly two minutes!

Romanov Remains Found Nicholas II, the last czar of Imperial Russia, was executed by communist revolutionaries in July 1918. He was murdered along with his wife, son, and four daughters in the basement of a house in Ekaterinburg where they had been under house arrest for several months. The whereabouts of their remains were unkown to anyone until 1979. Only after the Soviet Union collapsed did the outside world know of one mass grave that had been found. By 2007 all the bodies had been accounted for. This 2008 news report tells that modern DNA science was invaluable in the identification process.

Vanishing TV Character - Ginny Wroblicki One Day at a Time was a CBS sitcom that garnered decent ratings during its nine-year run from 1975 through 1984. The show's premise was that a new divorcee, Ann Romano (played by Bonnie Franklin), had relocated to Indianapolis with her two daughters to begin life anew. A brash character named Ginny Wroblicki joined the cast in the show's second season as the family's apartment-building neighbor. Wroblicki (played by Mary Louise Wilson) was described by Total Television as a "brassy cocktail waitress." In her first appearance on the show, Wroblicki initially quarrels with Ann without much provocation, but in the end Wroblicki helps Ann thwart a dishonest, fly-by-night upholstering business that was trying to overcharge her. In a couple of episodes Wroblicki was the romantic interest of Dwayne Schneider, the macho apartment superintendent (played by Pat Harrington). Wroblicki's character got mixed reviews. Some fans liked her in-your-face persona while others found it too overbearing and unappealing. (One critic said Wroblicki was "mannish." Another said she "looked like she had been around the block about 10 times.") She vanished after the 1976-77 season never to be heard from again. According to some scuttlebutt, Bonnie Franklin convinced CBS to dump the Ginny Wroblicki character from the show because she feared Wilson was upstaging her.

Love American Style - The Elopement Love American Style was a light-hearted program that aired on ABC from 1969 to 1974. It was usually comprised of three unrelated segments that involved some sort of romantic entanglement. The show had no ongoing cast; familiar actors from other TV shows normally played the lead roles. The show's main segments were separated with 'blackouts'--short, comedic vignettes. Love American Style was considered somewhat risque for its time because of its bedroom humor. Here's a good example: Davy Jones and Karen Valentine star in this 10-minute clip from 1970 about an elopement that goes wrong when the groom-to-be enters the wrong girl's window. It is preceded by a 'blackout' that would have raised a few eyebrows in 1970. (Try to ignore the logo that appears in the middle of the screen.)

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.

Mickey Rooney as Mr Yunioshi In the 1961 romantic comedy Breakfast at Tiffany's, Audrey Hepburn played flighty New York City escort Holly Golightly. The relatively small role of her Japanese landlord, Mr. Yunioshi, was strangely played by...Mickey Rooney. Director Blake Edwards instructed Rooney to play Yunioshi as a caricature of an Asian. Accordingly Rooney wore false dentures to give him protruding front teeth. He also spoke in a way that the letter L came out as an R sound. ('Miss Go-right-ry' was how he pronounced the main character's name.) Most of the time Mr. Yunioshi yelled rather than spoke. Based on 21st-century political correctness, Rooney's performance clearly falls within the bounds of bad taste, but as Rooney noted shortly before he died, for the first 40 years after Breakfast at Tiffany's was released, nobody complained. In fact, Rooney claimed that Asian fans of the film always thought his portrayal of Mr. Yunioshi was very amusing.

Petticoat Junction - Steve and Betty Jo First Kiss In honor of Mike Minor who just passed away at age 75--one of the most surprising and favorite Petticoat Junction moments: Steve Elliott and Betty Jo Bradley's first kiss. In Season #4 Steve (Mike Minor) had been added to the PJ cast as a pilot just mustered out of the Air Force who was working as a crop duster. During one of his flights, the red-blooded American male couldn't help but notice the three shapely Bradley sisters swimming in the Hooterville water tank. He quickly decides to reside at the Shady Rest Hotel where he becomes the romantic interest of eldest Bradley girl Billie Jo. However, by Season #5 youngest sister Betty Jo (Linda Kaye) begins to shed her tomboyish ways and becomes a rather fetching lass. The plot of this episode is that farmhand Eb Dawson (from the cast of Green Acres) becomes smitten with the lovely redhead. Betty Jo has no such feelings towards Eb other than friendship, so she asks Steve to pretend to be her boyfriend to dissuade Eb's romantic advances. Watch the clip to see what happens.

Shirley Temple First On-Screen Kiss The 1942 comedy Miss Annie Rooney was a bit of a dud. Fourteen-year-old Shirley Temple plays the title character--a girl from the wrong side of the tracks who becomes the romantic interest of wealthy Marty White (played by Our Gang alumnus Dickie Moore). The flick is remembered by movie and trivia buffs for one awkward scene in which Shirley is romantically kissed for the first time in her storied movie career. Dozens of news photographers were present to record the "end of innocence" moment for posterity. As you will see, it wasn't much of a kiss. Decades later Moore--who was utterly terrified to be the first actor to woo Shirley--described the kiss as "tepid" and "pathetic". It was the first time Moore, who was 16, had ever kissed a girl either on-screen or off-screen.
