Trivia

JASON BATEMAN IN A RECENT INTERVIEW TOLD A STORY OF HOW HIM AND RICKY SCHROEDER DRIVE OVER A YELLOW JACKET HIVE: AND RICKY SCHROEDER GOT STUNG: "See this office right here?" he says, gesturing at a window to the right of the entrance. "This is where I did my schoolwork when I was doing Silver Spoons on Stage 42. Having an office here, in this same bungalow, is just like this incredibly humbling full-circle kind of great thing." He turns and points to a little slope of exposed reddish dirt that's been carved from the hillside. It's maybe a dozen feet high, but steep. "I remember Ricky Schroder was coming back from rehearsal one day, and he slid down this hill by accident-he was trying to show off-and he slid right over a hole, a yellow-jacket hole. I'll never forget that image, looking out that window and watching this cloud of yellow jackets around him and him running around here yelling, 'JASON! G********!' " See more »

Unabashedly Eighties
1 September 2000 | by nycovom1See all my reviews

This was another show I watched back in the eighties. If you'd like to see some of the pop culture items from that decade, check out this program. Topsider boat shoes, Michael Jackson dance moves, Members Only Jackets--they're all in Silver Spoons in various places. One episode I remember vividly has Shroeder's character hacking into a military computer by mistake and downloading plans for a top-secret fighter jet--I'm serious! Let's see....oh, yes, there was the episode where he and John Houseman drive the family Mercedes through a wall into Higgin's character's office. Egad! I gotta stop. I'm having flashbacks :-).
