    The George Gobel Show was hosted by the quiet almost shy George Gobel who was affectionately known as "Lonesome George", a very unlikely comedian indeed, but his show was one of TV's top hits in the mid fifties. With familiar sayings from him like "Well, I'll be a dirty bird!" and "You don't hardly get those no more" endeared him to the public until "Gunsmoke" came along and ran opposite him.

    During the two seasons that the show aired on Tuesday nights for a full hour he alternated with The Eddie Fisher Show and both stars were regular guests on each other's programs.

    For his final season George was picked up by CBS and alternated with The Jack Benny Show.

    The theme song for his show was called "Gobelues" by his friend and orchestra leader (Uncle) John Scott Trotter.

    Danger Island was a live-action, cliff-hanger adventure serial that aired in short segments as part of the Banana Splits Adventure Hour in the 1968-1969 TV season. It produced the catch phrase "Uh oh, Chongo!" which became popular among children who watched the Saturday morning show. It is also notable for introducing a young Jan-Michael Vincent to TV viewers, as well as for being one of the early directorial efforts of Richard Donner, who went on to direct such popular feature films as The Omen, Superman:The Movie, and all four Lethal Weapon films. The story concerns Professor Hayden, his daughter, and his young assistant (Vincent). They are searching for the lost ancient city of Tobanya -- as well as for the professor's missing brother -- among uncharted islands of the South Pacific when they are attacked by pirates seeking lost treasure. The pirates destroy their boat, marooning our heroes on the island -- but not ending their search. They are soon joined by newfound friends Morgan and Chongo, two merchant seamen who had been marooned themselves years before. Along the way, our heroes must not only fend off the pirates, who are after the rumored treasure of the lost city, but also outwit native island headhunters. The serial appeared only on the first season of the Banana Splits show, but it was sometimes seen on the reruns of the show which were syndicated in later years. Danger Island is fondly remembered for its unique mix of adventure and slapstick comedy.moreless

    The Lawless Years

    Follow
    NBC (ended 1961)
    Barney Ruditsky was a real-life New York City cop busting bootleggers and gangsters during their heyday in the 1920s and '30s. The Lawless Years, which dramatized his exploits, was based on his memoir, and employed him as technical adviser of the series. Episodes opened with Ruditsky in a grungy office recalling the facts of a certain case he'd worked during the days of crime bosses and rampant corruption. He used a slide projector to illustrate details and show the criminals involved in the story which then unfolded as a flashback drama. As played by whiskey-voiced James Gregory, Ruditsky was a short-tempered, hard-boiled, crime fighter who wanted nothing more than to crack the heads of lawbreakers. He lived, breathed, and slept "cop". The Lawless Years hit the air some six months before the debut of that other famous 20's cop show, yet somehow failed to become the phonomenon that The Untouchables did. It was was taken off the air in December of 1959, but returned for a second go-around in 1961, lasting just half a season. This series lead to James Gregory's best-known role, Detective Frank Lugar, on the police comedyBarney Miller. Except for the fact that Miller had a studio audience, the two characters are practically the same--both so serious they're funny. Series creator Danny Arnold, who knew the real Ruditsky, remembered The Lawless Years and thought Gregory was perfect for the part.moreless
