This week we tune to the year 1981 with this TV Guide featuring a "Taxi" cover. Let's peel back the cover and the years.
"Pirate", "Tippy" the turtle and "Tiny" the mouse.
Here's a promo clip for the movie that will give you a taste of the hype and hysteria.
That episode of WKRP ("Jennifer Moves") has one of my favorite lines from the series. Les, speaking of his Aunt Eureka:
"Then she bought another parakeet, and another, and more and more until finally there were thousands of parakeets. And the mess they made was beyond belief. Aunt Eureka had gone insane of course, living all alone in a house very much like this one."
The Robert Blake/Randy Quaid tv production of "Of Mice and Men" is actually a very good adaption of the book, much better than the Gary Sinise/John Malkovich 1992 version, in my opinion.
