Remco Toys Monkey Division Whirlybird 1964 A mint in the box Remco Whirlybird. Remco made many variations of this whirlybird. This is the Monkey Division variation. Monkey Division was a line of toys Remco made and touted it as their "Guerilla War" line of toys. The had helmets, guns, rifles, bazookas, etc. Another wildly popular 60s toy put out during the Vietnam era. Toys glorifying war began to wane when the reports of scores of soliders getting killed filled our TV screens and the "Living Room War" we viewed on the news became unpopular, also it was more fun to make Love not War and the hippie era was ushered in. Parents began to object to toys glorifying war. The set also came with 25 soldiers, a tank, a jeep and truck. The whirlybird also carried all the stuff and had a working cargo hoist too. You are looking at a rarity. The soliders etc. are not shown but are still in their original package. I've often wondered how some of these toys these toys remain unplayed with? Perhaps it is old store stock and I've also heard that sometimes parents would leave the room of a deceased child the way it was when they passed. That is kind of creepy to me.

Jean Vander Pyl Grave Marker Since we've been doing a lot of reminiscing about The Flintstones, I thought I'd post a photo of the grave marker of Jean Vander Pyl (the voice of Wilma Flintstone) at Ascension Cemetery in Lake Forest, California. Notice the small picture of Wilma inset beside the image of the deceased!

It's been 49 years and to this day, there is still controversy over whether he killed himself or was murdered. ****************** Here's some interesting trivia about him I thought I'd share today in the Comments Section:

Another Interactive Version of Whats My Line Steve asked me to try this, so here goes. Let's pretend I'm John Daly, the distinguished host of What's My Line. All of you are the panelists. You are blindfolded as the mystery guest (who exists in my mind) enters the studio. The crowd cheers as he/she signs in and takes a seat next to Mr. Daly. Your task is to identify the mystery challenger from scratch. In the tradition of WML, you will ask questions that can only be answered yes or no. Of course the mystery guest is a famous person. The one quirk is that he/she may be deceased. Good luck! May we have the first question, please.

German Children of Charles Lindbergh In 1927, Charles Lindbergh, a virtualy unknown air mail pilot from Minnesota, became a worldwide celebrity with his daring solo flight over the Atlantic Ocean. He remained a beloved American hero until the onset of the Second World War when his isolationist views thinly disguised an admiration for Nazi Germany. Twenty-nine years after Lindbergh died in 1974, Lindbergh's reputation took another beating. It was revealed he had fathered at least seven children with three German mistressess during his many trips abroad in the 1950s and 1960s. In 2003 three of them, the children of Brigitte Hesshaimer, produced 112 letters Lindbergh had written to their mother along with childhood photographs with the famed aviator and their own recollections of the tall, lanky man who they knew as Careau Kent. DNA tests conclusively proved they were Lindbergh's children. The Hesshaimer children, born between 1958 and 1967, said they didn't realize Lindbergh was their father until the early 1980s when Bouteuil, the middle child, began asking questions. After discovering a bundle of letters allegedly written by Lindbergh and addressed to her mother, Bouteuil confronted her and was finally told that Kent was actually Lindbergh. The children promised to keep the secret until both their mother and Lindbergh's widow, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, were deceased. Both died in 2001. The revelation stunned Lindbergh's Pulitzer-prize winning biographer, A. Scott Berg, who told the Associated Press when the siblings made their claim, it would have been "out of character for Lindbergh to father the siblings." The Hesshaimers say Lindbergh met their mother, a Munich hatmaker, and fell in love in the mid-1950s when he spent much of his time traveling. Lindbergh would visit the family once or twice a year when the children were young, staying for five days to two weeks, Dyrk Hesshaimer said, and their mother forbade them from discussing their father outside of the family. “We quickly built up a close relationship to him,” he said. “We didn't have the time together with him that other children had with their fathers, but when he was there he concentrated very intensively on us.” Bouteil recalled breakfasts where her mother and Lindbergh would talk for hours, and of the people he'd met. “I knew he was something special,” Dyrk Hesshaimer said. “He had knowledge about U.S. politics that wasn't in the news at the time.” Their mother received what would be her final letter dated Aug. 16, 1974. It read, “I am losing energy everyday. My love to you and the children, all I can send.” Brigitte Hesshaimer later read in the papers that Lindbergh had died of cancer on Aug. 26, 1974 She told her children simply that their father was dead. Subsequent research by German investigators found that Lindbergh had fathered four other children with two other German women.

Whats My Line Interactive Game Part 2 After seeing Steve's post from last September, Mia requested another interactive version of What's My Line. (Some of you might recall that, at Steve's request, I created one shortly thereafter. It was very successful and I promised to do another. I guess it just slipped my mind.) Anyway, I'll again pretend that I'm esteemed WML host John Daly. A mystery challenger has just entered the studio and signed in to great applause. You can all be the WML panelists. Your task is to identify said mystery guest by asking questions that can be answered yes or no. As in the previous game, the mystery challenger may be a deceased person. Good luck!

The Ghost and Mrs. Muir The Ghost and Mrs Muir was one of those TV programs that was liked by the critics but was generally met with a yawn by the public. It was based on a 1947 movie by the same name. The premise of the sitcom was that a young widowed writer with two children buys a house in Maine that is possessed by the ghost of long-deceased seafarer Captain Daniel Gregg (played by Edward Mulhare). After initial resentment of his house being occupied by strangers, Captain Gregg eventually looks out for the Muir family's best interests. Hope Lange had the starring role of Mrs. Muir and remarkably won Emmys for outstanding actress in a comedy series for each of the seasons the show aired on network TV. A total of 46 episodes were made over two seasons. The first season, 1968-69, aired on NBC. The second season, 1969-70, aired on ABC. Charles Nelson Reilly, before he wore a toupee, played Claymore Gregg, the nephew of the sea captain who sold his uncle's house to Mrs. Muir. This is the opening montage.
