ON THE VERY EDGE OF MY TV MEMORIES......
18 May 1999 | by renfield54See all my reviews

I used to love this show. Looking back, at the team of John Astin and Marty Engels (and his little black book of female phone numbers), I still have fond memories. They did a great commercial for the show where they stand at an easel and Engels comments on how to "color" the show's characteristics. When the sketch pad gets to Mrs. Dickens (Emmaline Henry), Fenster (Engels) says to "color" her beautiful, voluptuous and other complimentary terms. A jealous/angry stares at Engels Astin cuts in and says to "color her married"...(sorry but it was an amusing commercial)...and Engels backs off.....

And speaking of Emmaline Henry. This was my first glimpse of her and I was in love with her my whole life..... It was great seeing her later as Amanda Bellows (Dr. Bellow's wife) on "I Dream of Jeannie)... SHE AGED BEAUTIFULLY.....

The only episode I can remember clearly is one of them looking at themselves in the future...Fenster still single and an operator brings his "little black book" out of the kitchen. The sight gag is that now instead of one that fits in his pocket, this one stands about 3 feet tall and comes in on a dolly......
