Yes, I had forgotten that about Howard McNear! :D
Just another one of those extra-special things about Cinnamon Bear!

Jeez I love Floyd, this is what it's like at our house when we are trying to remember something!

Howard McNear was in The Long Long Trailer, a small role at the beginning when Tacy and Niki (Lucy and Desi) get to a fancy trailer park for their honeymoon. Howard is married to none other than Marjorie Maine in the movie, they are the Hittaways. Great name.

Anyone heard of "The Two of Us"? It was an obscure sitcom that ran for two years on CBS in the early Eighties, and somehow they got Peter Cook to be in it. Season 1 had the better version of the theme song. (This comes from my own old videotape.)

And yes, Oliver Clark is the guy who played Mr. Herd on The Bob Newhart Show.

I didn't I'd ever run across that show at all, but when I watched it, those characters do seem vaguely familiar; I must have seen an episode or two. At any rate, I like the theme song.

The theme song for MASH is so dark -

Man...that is dark. :shock: I'd never heard the actual words before.

Loooove that one! That show still holds up for the most part!

This opening theme for That Girl is one of my favorites, with its elegant instrumental arrangement combined with the views of New York City.
