50's TV Sit-Coms. Old TV in general. Things I didn't know.

Robert Culp was the bad guy in the one I just saw. He could really handle a 6 shooter. All kinds of fancy twirling. Lucas shot him dead in the end. Twirl on this, MF'er!!!!! :rofl:Sammy is on right now for me. Damn, Sam. You can twirl too.

I have a sinking feeling that Sammy is going to bite the dust. BTW, Lucas is wearing his badge correctly in this episode..

Ward Cleaver on Leave it to Beaver, was a pastor in real life. He only agreed to do the show if each show could convey some type of moral message. Back when people weren't quite so batshit crazy as today.
wow! I didn't know that. One of my drummer friends met him back in the 80's at a resort, while on summer vacation, somewhere in the Mid-West. Said he was a drunken, bitter old man.

If Mr. Cleaver had a foster child who had to be admitted to the hospital it would be a ward of Ward in a ward and ward off infection while he's at it.

For anyone that has seen Robert Culp and Sammy on the Rifleman, have had to seen "Trackdown" starring Robert Culp. It always cracks me up at how low he always wears his Ranger star. And if you see more than one episode, pay attention to how much he bounces when he walks in those cowboy boots.

I met someone named Dylan and asked him:

"Dylan as in Bob, or Dillon as in Marshal?"

There needs to be a re-boot of Peter Gunn.

Most of it stands up today.

Get Quentin Tarantino to direct the first 3 episodes.

I read up on him. Yep. He was a big baby. He was making $11,000 a week back in the '60's. :shock:
