Byron’s TV Listings, March 5

TV Guide Magazine: The Cover Archive 1953 - today! | 1967 | March 4, 1967

Those were the days!

(I don’t know if I can manage this today, but I’ll try.)

G’day! Byron the Quokka here, with another weekend’s worth of fabulous TV viewing. Here are just a few samples.

7:30 P.M.   Ch. 08  YOU CAN GROW HAIR!–Infomercial

Host Frandor Tungsten, “the Hairiest Man on Earth,” demonstrates an assortment of hard-to-find hair tonics guaranteed to grow hair… anywhere! This week, he grows whole thickets of matted hair on a floor lamp and an ottoman. Somewhat disgusting, but certainly impressive.

Ch. 14   THE LEVITATORS–Sci-fi thriller

Undercover cops Patsy (Jane Eyre) and Flatsy (Archie Andrews) make criminals drift off into outer space, never to return! Mafia boss Benny “The Shark” Bosco has had enough of this–but can his favorite hit man (Lassie, playing a human) keep his feet on the ground?

8 P.M.  Ch. 22  I MARRIED A LUNATIC–Sitcom

JoJo’s abjectly horrible trombone practice is driving her husband up the wall! JoJo: Edie Adams. Jimbo: Denis Menke. Angry neighbors: the June Taylor Dancers.

Ch. 61  MOVIE–Medieval Philosophy

In “Where’s Robin Hood When You Need Him?” (Canadian/Indonesian, 1996), the lord of the manor (Gene Autry) clashes with Abbot Rudolphus (Slim Pickens) over who has the rights to the last carp (Frank Buttocks) in the old Mill Pond. Lady Margo: June Allyson. Saracen spy: Edgar Buchanan.

Well, I’m sure those have whetted your appetite for more. Quokka University continues to bring you the absolute best in low-cost entertainment!

  1. I am definitely going with “You Can Grow Hair.” At Walmart with my wife today as she spent time in the cosmetic aisles, I read about all the products promising hair growth – what an industry that has become. If they really work why are there so many bald men walking around? “I Married A Lunatic” reminds me of the French Horn class at our local Middle School I subbed at yesterday. I asked one girl if she like playing the French Horn, and she said, “I love it! I am going to marry a French Horn.”
