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.

P.A. announcer Paul Harris instructs the crowd to rise for the national anthem. An instrumental version of O Canada is played. Play-by-play man Bill Hewitt sets the scene...and the puck is dropped.

WWII Hawaii Overprint Money After the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, there was a legitimate fear that the Japanese would next launch a full-scale invasion of the Hawaiian Islands and occupy them. Among the consequences if that nightmare scenario actually unfolded was that all the US paper money in Hawaii would be seized from banks, businesses and private citizens and be used to finance Imperial Japan's war machine. Accordingly, a remarkable decision was made: During the first half of 1942, Hawaii's residents were ordered take their paper money to special collection areas and exchange it for new bills. Each bill had a special overprint of the word HAWAII on its reverse side. If Hawaii ever did fall to the Japanese, the US government would immediately declare the Hawaii overprint bills to be worthless. The old bills that were exchanged--about $200 million of them--were burned under the supervision of the American military. Such a calamity never occurred, of course. The overprint notes are still acceptable as legitimate US money today, although they rarely are found in general circulation.

Final Scene from The Big Parade - 1925 One of film history's largely forgotten masterpieces is The Big Parade (1925). Directed by King Vidor, the movie stars John Gilbert as James (Jim) Apperson, the pampered son of an American industrialist who, while watching a military procession, is persuaded by his patriotic friends to enlist in the US Army to fight in the First World War. The main female character, Melisande, a French farm girl, is played by Renee Adoree. The plot has Jim's unit being billeted on the grounds of Melisande's farm and the two falling in love--despite the language barrier and Jim being engaged to a girl back home named Justyn. The two lovers are separated as Jim's unit is called to the front. Jim is wounded in the leg. While recuperating in a hospital, Jim learns that Melisande's farm has changed hands several times and that Melisande and her mother are among hundreds of refugees who have fled their homes. Just before Jim returns stateside as an amputee, his mother discovers that Justyn has fallen in love with Jim's brother. Accordingly, Jim's mother urges him to return to France to look for Melisande. Here is the climactic scene when Jimmy and Melisande reunite.

Shirley Temple Bill Robinson Dance From the 1935 movie The Littlest Rebel, Shirley Temple and Bill Robinson try to raise enough money to buy railroad tickets by putting on a dance routine. Shirley was seven years old at the time and was naturally able to match one of the world's greatest dancers step for step. Temple and Robinson were Hollywood's first interracial dance team!

Mickey Mantle Avoids DP - 1960 WS This is one of the smartest baserunning plays you'll ever see: It's Game #7 of the 1960 World Series. The New York Yankees are trailing the Pittsburgh Pirates by one run (9-8) with one out in the top of the ninth inning. Gil McDougald is on third base. Mickey Mantle is on first base. Yogi Berra hits a sharp ground ball to Pittsburgh first baseman Rocky Nelson. Nelson steps on first base for the second out of the inning. Mickey Mantle appears to be a dead duck for the Series-ending out, but with the force play now removed, he dives back into first base, eluding the surprised Nelson's tag. McDougald scored the game-tying run. (As any baseball fan worth his salt knows, the Pirates won the game in the bottom of the ninth inning when Bill Mazeroski led off with a home run.)

Irene Ryan and Bob Crane on Password Irene Ryan (Granny from the Beverly Hillbillies) and Bob Crane (colonel Hogan from Hogan's Heroes) are the celebrity players from this episode of Password circa 1967. Donna Douglas (Elly Mae from The Beverly Hillbillies) makes a surprise appearance as a contestant. The game's producers had a bit of fun with Donna's unmistakable good looks. (No doubt today's anti-sexism crowd would be up in arms over such obvious objectifying.)

Vanishing TV Character- Larry Mondello Robert (Rusty) Stevens played Larry Mondello in 67 episodes of the first three seasons of Leave It To Beaver between 1957 and 1960. That meant he appeared in approximately 2/3 of those 102 shows. Larry was Beaver's best buddy. Good-natured, obese, but not the brightest kid on the planet, Larry often led Beaver into various messes. We never saw Larry's father, but his harried mother (played by Madge Blake) was constantly threatening Larry with the consequences of his iron-fisted pop laying down the law on him once he got home from another business trip. After the 1959-60 season, however, Larry just vanished from the sitcom. According to some reports, Rusty Stevens' father took a job in Pennsylvania. Thus the Stevens family was suddenly uprooted from California, which effectively ended Rusty's TV career. However, a few reports--including comments made by Barbara Billingsley (who played June Cleaver) late in her life--indicate that Stevens' mother was an insufferable stage mom whose presence and antics rankled the producers. Eventually the brains behind the show had had enough of her and decided abruptly to drop Larry Mondello from the show.

Dicovery - Sunday Morning Kids Show From October 1962 to September 1971, ABC aired a "highbrow series for children" called Discovery. Historical and cultural themes were emphasized in each program. In its first season it began as a 25-minute weekday series, but failed to attract much of an audience. In 1963 it switched to a Sunday morning timeslot where it remained for the duration of its run. Hosted by Virginia Gibson (later Bill Owen joined Gibson as a co-host), the show is fondly remembered by children of that era because it was, for years, the only network show that aired on Sunday mornings that was not an adult-oriented political or news panel show. Each year that Discovery aired it was followed by the last two digits of the year. He is the opening and closing of a Discovery '68 episode.
