Bugs Bunny Eye Exam From the 1953 Warner Bros cartoon "Forward March Hare": Bugs Bunny is accidentally drafted and creates havoc during basic training, but he does do incredibly well on his army eye exam. It must have been all those carrots!

Roger Doucet Sings Anthems Many sports fans show bias when they declare the national anthem singer for their particular team is the best. My pick for the best ever was the late Roger Doucet who splendidly performed both the American and Canadian national anthems at the Montreal Forum for many years until his death at the young age of 62 in 1981. I despise the Montreal Canadiens, but I have to admit Doucet, who was trained as an opera singer, was a notch above all the others I've ever heard. Here he is at his glorious best at a 1979 Stanley Cup playoff game.

 Funeral for Confederate Submariners On February 17, 1864, the small navy of the Confederate States of America could claim a military first: A submarine sank an enemy ship. The crew of the H.L. Hunley, under the command of George Dixon, achieved the feat of sinking the USS Housatonic in Charleston Harbor, only to mysteriously sink later that same day with the loss of its entire crew of eight sailors. The H.L. Hunley had a short, checkered history. Twice it sank during training operations, killing a total of 13 men--including its namesake inventor who was aboard for the second catastrophe. Both times the hull was raised, repaired and put back into service. The hull of the Hunley was first located in 1995 and was raised in 2000. The remains of the brave sailors were finally laid to rest on April 17, 2004. Thousands of curious but respectful onlookers, dressed in both blue and gray, turned out for the ceremony at Magnolia Cemetery in Charleston, SC. Scientists and military historians are still trying to discover exactly why the submarine sank.

The New Monkees - 1987 Sitcom Flop The original sitcom The Monkees aired on NBC for two seasons (1966 to 1968). Along with winning an Emmy for best sitcom of 1966, the original Monkees were responsible for several top 40 hit songs, including I'm a Believer, Last Train to Clarksville, and Pleasant Valley Sunday. A very successful nostalgic twentieth anniversary reunion tour by the group in 1986 wrongly convinced some folks in the syndicated TV world that the time was ripe for a second Monkees series to be produced for a new generation. It was a spectacular failure. Like the first Monkees series, extensive tryouts were held to find four actors to play the roles. Unlike the first series, only actors with proven musical abilities were considered. In the end the four main cast members of The New Monkees were Marty Ross, Dino Kovas, Larry Saltis, and Jared Chandler. On the show, the band lived in a large mansion with a butler named Manford (played by Gordon Oas-Heim). The mansion had numerous unexplored rooms and was the main source of the lads' adventures. Instead of a normal kitchen and dining room, the house featured a full diner with a waitress named Rita (played by former exercise instructor Bess Motta of 20 Minute Workout fame). Also present in the mansion was a talking computer called Helen (voiced by Lynnie Godfrey) who used to work for the Defense Department but found that she preferred rock music over missiles. The plots routinely forced the audience to suspend reality. One episode had Larry falling asleep on a copy machine--resulting in numerous Larry clones creating chaos throughout the mansion. Neither sitcom nor music fans ever took to the show nor to the lone album the group produced. Disappointing ratings caused the show to be cancelled after just 13 episodes even though 22 episodes were scheduled to be produced for the first season. Mickey Dolenz, the drummer in the original group, said he wasn't at all surprised The New Monkees bombed. Invoking a Star Trek analogy, Dolenz likened it to "giving another actor pointy ears and expecting viewers to accept him as Mr. Spock." Moreover, the four original Monkees sued Columbia Television Pictures for using the group's name. The case was settled out of court. Bit of trivia: Russell Johnson (most famous for playing the role of the Professor on Gilligan's Island) was the only person to appear on both Monkees series. The New Monkees has never been made available on DVD.

The Wicked Dreams of Paula Schultz Who remembers this Cold War-era movie? Four members of the TV sitcom Hogan's Heroes (Bob Crane, John Banner, Leon Askin, and Werner Klemperer) starred alongside the comely Elke Sommer in The Wicked Dreams of Paula Schultz. The plot has Sommer playing the title character. She's an East German athlete who, while training for the 1968 Olympics, decides to pole vault over the Berlin Wall to freedom in the West. Crane plays an amoral American businessman with black market connections in East Germany who is willing to sell Schultz to either East or West Germany. Banner, Askin and Klemperer all play bumbling East German agents who come to the obvious conclusion that retrieving the sexy pole vaulter would be good for communist propaganda. The film was both a box office and critical disaster. Movie critic Leonard Maltin describes it as 'a laughless dud.'

Forgotten Show : Run Joe Run The reference book Total Television describes Run, Joe Run as a cross between Lassie and The Fugitive--which is quite accurate. The premise of this NBC kids' show (which ran on Saturday mornings from 1974 to 1976) was that an army German Shepherd named Joe is wrongly accused of attacking his trainer in the K-9 Unit, Sgt. William Corey. Joe flees but is relentlessly pursued by reward-seeking folks who want him to face retribution for the crime he did not commit! While on the lam, Joe would help people in distress. It was one of a scant few live-action Saturday morning shows. During the first season, Arch Whiting played Sgt. Corey who also pursued Joe--to tell him he'd been exonerated. In the second season, the show's focus shifted. A new character was added: a young biker named Josh McCoy (played by Chad States) who became Joe's do-gooding ally. Here are the opening and closing montages from the first season.

Maureen Connolly Training for Comeback - 1954 Nine-time Grand Slam tennis champion Maureen Connolly is featured in this newsreel clip training for an attempted comeback in late 1954 or early 1955. Five months earlier, just after winning her third successive Wimbledon singles title, 19-year-old "Little Mo" had her right leg horribly fractured in a horseback riding accident. (Look at the awful surgical scar!) This clip shows Connolly steadfastly working to try to regain her leg strength and agility through a regimen of ballet, tap dancing and tennis drills. Despite her optimistic statement at the end of this clip, Connolly's comeback never materialized. Connolly was unsatisfied with her progress and felt she could never regain her championship form. In April 1955 she abandoned her return to tennis.
