Quotes

Marty Markham: Just like a big dog. Only I never had a dog.
Bill Burnett: Folks can learn a lot from animals.
Marty Markham: I used to think you had to fight a horse, make him do what you wanted.
Bill Burnett: Well, you do have to be firm. You have to be with your horse and understand how he thinks and feels before you can really be a good rider.
Marty Markham: You know the only trouble with this arm now? When I ride him around bareback, slowly, like you said I could, I have an awful time climbing up on his back. But Ollie's teaching me a new trick. You can't see it...

Spin and Marty are better as very fond memories like Nancy Drew books and circus peanuts. I, too, ran home to watch the Mickey Mouse Club every afternoon and Spin and Marty were my favorites. Spin, was the first male I found "easy on the eyes". My cousin also had a crush on Marty, but when she discovered that Marty was a red-head, abandoned him. I think there may be a lot of women who discovered boys watching Spin and Marty. It was so much fun to follow the adventures of the two boys, a breed that the oldest daughter of three girls found to be from a different planet, but oh so interesting... But, like my opening line, it is better as a memory than as the real thing. Nancy Drew mysteries are not half as mysterious. Circus peanuts are sickeningly sweet. Spin and Marty shows are corny. But Spin is still a dream boat.
