Crazy Captions! 1

I come across a lot of weird images doing this blog. Rather than let them go to waste, I’ve repurposed them.

This is from an old serial, likely Buck Rogers. I stumbled upon it while looking for a New Year’s Flash Gordon image. Buster Crabbe played both Buck and Flash so you find scenes from both in any given search. A guy named “Buster” playing characters called “Buck” and “Flash”? I guess it’s better than his real name, Clarence Linden Crabbe II. You go, Buster.

It looks like they filmed this on a Honeymooners set.

The 5 Memes of Christmas Day 3: Crankiness

11 Dec

December 11, 2020

The 5 Memes of Christmas is a series running every Friday this month until the unveiling of the bmj2k.com Annual Fonzie Christmas Meme. Each week we will spotlight a Great Moment in Santa History from Classic TV. The theme for week three: Crankiness!

That’s Phil Foster in the hideous Santa throne above. You’d be cranky too if you had to sit in that thing while sticky kids with sticky fingers covered in goo pawed your lap and pulled your beard.

Can’t get enough of Phil Foster sitting in a chair? When Mr. Blog was a kid in Brooklyn this commercial ran all the time, where a seated Phil Foster yelled at us until we bought furniture. Watch him as he nearly slides out of his chair with fury:

What’s not fear love? That’s what made Laverne and Shirley such a hit. You never knew when Frank DeFazio would throw a gasket and smack a man right in the Pizza Bowl.
