Just got out of a live studio taping of the Thanksgiving episode of @murphybrowncbs at Kaufman Astoria Studios! Such a sharp, funny, and timely reboot, and it was exhilarating to be in the same room as TV legends Candice Bergen, Tyne Daly (who looked adorable with her top ponytail with pink highlights), Faith Ford, costume designer Patricia Field, and creator/executive producer Diane English!!! It makes me wants to produce an episodic one day. Thank you Andrea Simmons for inviting me, and it was great seeing you @amyrivard — you both did an awesome job with the audience! #MurphyBrown #MurphyBrownCBS #KaufmanAstoriaStudios #CandiceBergen #TVClassics #Reboot #SmartAndFunny #TVIndustry #Broadcasting #BroadcastNews
For all the kiddos out there don’t forget to watch Charlie Brown’s Halloween program tonight. I grew up watching all of these great cartoons and I’m so thankful I did. Now it’s nice to pass the baton onto our children and grandchildren to enjoy these classics. #charliebrownhalloween #tvclassics #tvshowsforkids #halloweeniscoming 👻🦇💀🎃🕷😈
#Repost @classic_suggestions with @get_repost ・・・ #theaddamsfamily #trivia 🕸 -Gomez and Morticia Addams were the first married couple on American TV implied to have a sex life. -Jackie Coogan was originally rejected as Uncle Fester. He went home, shaved his head, and did his own Fester makeup and costume. This won him the part. -Gomez originally was engaged to Morticia's sister, Ophelia, in an arranged marriage. A few days before the wedding, however, he met and fell in love with Morticia and wound up marrying her instead. #johnastin #carolynjones #jackiecoogan #tedcassidy #tvclassics #classicsuggestions #halloweenclassicsuggestions
#theaddamsfamily #trivia 🎭 -Wednesday Addams' name is a reference to the nursery rhyme that says, "Wednesday's child is full of woe." -The Addamses were the first TV family to own a home computer (a UNIVAC). -The Addams Family home consisted mostly of recycled sets from the movie The Unsinkable Molly Brown (1964). -Thing, the disembodied hand/arm limb, was usually played by Ted Cassidy. When Lurch had to be on camera at the same time as Thing, however, associate producer Jack Voglin lent his hand. A third actor also played Thing on occasion, but his identity is not known.#johnastin #carolynjones #jackiecoogan #tedcassidy #tvclassics #classicsuggestions #halloweenclassicsuggestions
#theaddamsfamily #trivia 🎞 -John Astin was given the choice of two names for his character, and selected Gomez over Repelli. The son's name was originally to be Pubert, but was changed to Pugsley because Pubert sounded too sexual. -Cousin Itt's voice was supplied by producer Nat Perrin, who recited gibberish into a tape recorder and then played it back at a higher speed. -Fester was Morticia's uncle. #johnastin #carolynjones #jackiecoogan #tedcassidy #tvclassics #classicsuggestions #halloweenclassicsuggestions
#theaddamsfamily #trivia 📺 -Thing was usually a right hand. Ted Cassidy (Lurch) occasionally used his left hand just to see if anybody would notice. Thing also had an arm, which was seen when it reached outside for something while in its box. -Filmways didn't want to pay singers to record the theme song, so composer Vic Mizzy triple overdubbed his own voice to simulate a trio. -Though Uncle Fester is a regular on the TV series, Charles Addams' prototype for Fester in the New Yorker cartoons was almost exclusively solitary, never shown indoors with the other family (except once as a painted portrait), and only once outdoors with the children (going fishing with dynamite).#johnastin #carolynjones #jackiecoogan #tedcassidy #tvclassics #classicsuggestions #halloweenclassicsuggestions
#theaddamsfamily #trivia ⛈ -Charles Addams never named his characters, but he had to come up with names for the characters on the TV show (it was one of the few contributions he made to the series). Within a week he decided on all of them - except for Mr. Addams, who almost wound up being called Repelli (for "repellent") instead of Gomez. -With the start of the TV series, The New Yorker magazine stopped running any Addams-Family-themed cartoons from Charles Addams until just prior to his death in 1988, although a few familiar characters were allowed solitary appearances (the prototypes for Pugsley, Cousin Itt, and Fester). -Wednesday's pet, Homer, was a black widow spider. Her headless doll was named Marie Antoinette.#johnastin #carolynjones #jackiecoogan #tedcassidy #tvclassics #classicsuggestions #halloweenclassicsuggestions

#theaddamsfamily #trivia 👻 -The train-crash sequence, in which the model trains collide and explode, was shot once, and that footage was used every time Gomez wrecked model trains. -Lurch got fan mail from teenage girls who insisted that he was cuter than The Beatles. -The interior decor of the Addamses's home was inspired by the producers' first sight of the eclectic furnishings of Charles Addams' own New York City apartment, which is why it does not at all resemble the run-down bare-walls interiors seen in both the original cartoons or the movies. #johnastin #carolynjones #jackiecoogan #tedcassidy #tvclassics #classicsuggestions #halloweenclassicsuggestions
#theaddamsfamily #trivia 🎃 -The interior of the Addams house was inspired by the real-life Manhattan apartment of Charles Addams, which contained suits of armor, an antique crossbow collection, and other oddities. -As Gomez would often place his lit cigars into his pocket, the prop department had lined the pockets of John Astin's jackets with asbestos. -Almost all episodes open in the Addamses' living room with the family playing and having fun. Activities included Gomez doing yoga headstands, flamenco dancing, sword fighting, bull whip practice, shooting thrown apples with crossbows and other bizarre games. #johnastin #carolynjones #jackiecoogan #tedcassidy #tvclassics #classicsuggestions #halloweenclassicsuggestions

Gary Raymond on the set of The Rat Patrol, not long after breaking his ankle in the jeep accident earlier that season. It looks like he's reading a script; likely the script for RP episode, The Double or Nothing Raid, because that episode was written to accommodate Gary's injury. The episode involves Gary Raymond's character (Moffitt) getting injured in the course of being captured by the enemy. Later, Moffitt manages to hold off the enemy with his leg in a cast and on crutches. It's a really interesting episode, to say the least! . @muttley9986 @princesspollyanna #ratpatrol #theratpatrol #garyraymond #moffitt #behindthescenes #trivia #ontheset #1960s #Hollywood #oldhollywood #classichollywood #60s #script #tv #tvseries #tvshow #classictv #tvclassics #60stv #tvhistory #popculture #photooftheday #instacool #vintage #classic #candid #tvguide #actors #actor #candidphoto

A screenshot from the fateful scene in the Rat Patrol episode, "The Take Me To Your Leader Raid". During this high-speed chase scene, the jeep carrying Chris George, Gary Raymond, and Justin Tarr overturned, severely injuring Chris and Gary. News of the near-fatal crash spread quickly, and soon interviews, including the following one, about the accident were printed: HOLLYWOOD (AP) - "By all rights, we should be dead." said Chris George, star of the desert war television series, The Rat Patrol. "It's a miracle we aren't." agrees co-star Gary Raymond. They and another actor in the series, Justin Tarr, are survivors of a jeep accident that might well have been the end of their careers, as well as Rat Patrol. It happened last week on dry lake bed at Rosanond, Calif. The company was shooting a scene in which Tarr drove a jeep around a wrecked German half-track during a battle. George was seated beside Tarr, and Raymond stood on the rear with a mounted gun. "The whole thing happened in slow motion." recalled George. "I could feel the right side of the jeep lifting, and I began to think we were going to roll over. I thought Gary could probably leap clear, since he was on the back. I looked over at Justin and guessed he would probably get killed, and probably I would, too. The jeep flipped up and over and the started to come down on us. I said to myself, 'This is it.' But the jeep didn't come all the way down. The gun mount on the back had acted as a roll bar." Raymond, the British member of the cast, had jumped as the jeep started to roll. He lay on the ground with a broken ankle. Crew members rushed over to lift the jeep from the other two actors, who were pinned under it. George seemed to be the most seriously hurt: Tarr had escaped with only an injured arm. All were taken to a desert hospital, and it was feared George might have suffered a fractured skull and broken vertebra. "Now it appears that I had a concussion, tore something in my neck and may have a hairline fracture of the vertebra." said George at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital in Hollywood. "I also had abrasions all over my body." The future plans of Rat Patrol depend on his recovery.
Dad’s Army is set to make a comeback after 50 years. Lost episodes from 1969 will now be remade with a new A-list cast. It will be interesting to see who they cast and how they rejuvenate a television classic. . . . . . . . . #dadsarmy #tvgold #bbc #newcast #alistcast #channelgold #goldchannel #britishtv #britishtvshow #britishactors #bestofbritish #dadsarmymovie #classictv #tvclassics #tvupdates #britishcasting #casting #castingdirector

TV Binge. Jeremy Brett was by far THE best Sherlock Holmes and most faithful to Conan Doyle’s character. Amazing that you can watch all 41 episodes on YouTube.
