What's Happening!

My favorite episode was when Dee was chosen to do a commercial for a hamburger chain, and she took one bite and says "This tastes like jackass meat!" I still crack up. I remember another episode when she says she wants a raise on her allowance, and her brother Roger says: "you get a quarter a week and that's plenty". Sure would suck to have a brother like that guy..

Don't forget the epic Doobie Brothers episode! WTF were they doing in the 'hood?

Keith said...

I always loved that show.

I was born in '66. Looking over your past posts brought back a lot of memories!

Great blog.

Goggles: Yeah that was Duane's signature um, saying... I forgot that. Well, I'm not surprised, my memory's not what it used to be..

The actress who played Mabel was also in your favorite movie "The Wiz". I read she was just on the show for two seasons. I remember the hamburger episode, good one!

joe said...

C: Yes, I watched Good Times also. Never watched Car 54 or Dragnet.

Jim: I always wondered why she left so soon. Also, she was in The Jerk as Steve Martin's mom.

I happened to catch a TV marathon of this show a couple of years ago. Brought back some fun memories!

I used to wonder how Dee got that acting gig. She had the personality of a rock.

Jim @ CoolStuffForDads.com said...

I read on Wikipedia it was due to a disagreement in the direction of the show. The Jerk comes on TV every once and a while, that's a good one too.

joe said...

Hairball: I haven't seen it since its initial run. I wonder how it's held up.

Googles: Yes, she was a real thorn in everyone's side. Except her mom's. Her mom didn't take no crap from anyone.... actually i think there was an episode where she spanked Roger... haha

Jim: Aw that's too bad. well it doesn't matter anyway, what with her being dead and all..

YouTube does have some minisodes of this show.

Miss Alex said...

I LOOOOOVE THIS SHOW... I agree with kim. the Doobie brother episode was FANTASTIC!!! I liked shirl the waitress too

joe said...

Hairball: The problem is that I'm on dial-up. To watch even a 3 minute video takes about 20 minutes to upload. I'm a busy guy. I don't have that kind of time.... what with all this blogging, etc...

Miss Alex: Shirley was GREAT. I miss that chick!

Hairball said...

Dear Joe,
I'm sorry about your dial-up connection. I've been there before and it sucks.

Hairball T. Hairball

joe said...

A little.

They had introduced several female characters this decade that would stand up for themselves but this was the first female child to do so, she made me laugh a lot.
