Doctor Me A Christmas I remember well when I got my Tinkertoys and doctor kit. The stethoscope and other tools were cool and I got a lot of use out of them but the pills were sugar pills that were so good!

Gene Fullmer 1931-2015 One of the familiar names from the golden age of boxing, Gene Fullmer, passed away on April 27, 2015 at the age of 83. He defeated Sugar Ray Robinson for the the world middleweight title in January 1957 before losing the championship back to Robinson in May. Fullmer held at least a portion of the middleweight crown again from 1959 to 1963. Known for his rugged, brawling style, Fullmer was very much a hero in his home state of Utah. A youth center is named after him. His pro record was 55-6-3 with 24 knockouts.

Olympic Boxing Champ Howard Davis Passes It has been announced that Howard Davis Jr., a gold medalist on the vastly talented 1976 American Olympic boxing team, passed away at age 59 from inoperable lung cancer on December 30, 2015. In a TV news interview conducted about two weeks before his death late, Davis claimed he had never used tobacco nor alcohol throughout his entire life. Davis was one of five American gold medalists who dominated the Montreal Olympic boxing tournament. Davis won the Val Barker Award as the most outstanding boxer in those Games. This was quite a feat considering the other American gold medalists were Sugar Ray Leonard, Leo Randolph, Michael Spinks, and Leon Spinks. Davis was a sentimental favorite as his mother died from a heart attack just a week before the Olympics began. Davis won two of his five Olympic bouts in the lightweight division by knockout, but as a professional he seldom displayed punching power, recording only 14 knockouts in 43 fights. Davis' lack of a big punch and generally cautious approach to his bouts made him far less marketable to TV audiences than Ray Leonard or Michael Spinks. Nevertheless, three times Davis fought for pro world titles and three times he lost. His last title fight loss--a first-round defeat to Buddy McGirt in 1988--sent Davis into retirement. Six years later Davis won three comeback fights before suffering a bad knockout defeat as a middleweight which ended his boxing career. His overall pro record was 36-6-1. The other four American Olympic champs from 1976--plus heavyweight bronze medalist John Tate--won at least some version of a world title at the professional level.

1970s Sitcom Flop - Sugar Time Here's a short-lived sitcom from the 1970s that, if it's remembered at all, it's mostly recalled by teenage boys. Sugar Time aired on ABC for just 13 episodes in the 1977-78 season. The show revolved around three attractive young ladies who formed a musical group called Sugar, but also held regular jobs. The threesome tried to break into the singing business by working free of charge at a local nightclub. The show's stars were Barbi Benton (as Maxx), Marianne Black (as Maggie), and Didi Carr (as Diane). Four episodes were aired in the summer of 1977. According to the reference book Total Television, the remaining nine episodes were scattered "irregularly thereafter." This is the opening montage. (An odd snippet of trivia: Didi Carr did very little acting after Sugar Time was cancelled in May 1978. She married a rabbi in 1984--and apparently is still wed to him--but she became a staunch atheist! That must be awkward!)

1960s Sugar Ad You definitely won't see anything like this today. An advert tells moms to give their daughters lots of sugar to combat the daily fatigue that comes with being an active girl. (It's from the mid-1960s; I can tell by the allusion to the Beatles' hair.)
