But, this is a funny little cartoon from the Fleischer Studios.
Renee Taylor was especially funny, as it seemed Sylvia was always eating or thinking about food and Ann Morgan Guibert was superb as Yetta. It is hard to imagine that this is the same woman who was "Millie" on "The Dick Van Dyke Show"!! I read somewhere that this show was the 90's version of "I Love Lucy" and in a way, I can see the comparisons. Wish the powers that be would release this show on DVD.
Bob Dylan wins the award for Best Male Rock Vocalist while Donna Summer wins the female award for "Hot Stuff" (one of the best songs EVER!!), but she loses the award for Best Disco Recording to Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" (how in the heck this song won over Donna Summer's "Bad Girls" album is still a mystery to me).
But what made this a memorable evening was the unscheduled appearances of Barbra Streisand and Neil Diamond coming out to sing "You Don't Bring Me Flowers"!! The fans in the audience screamed at various parts of the duet and when the song was over, I never heard such applause at an award show before!! Too bad that Streisand and Diamond lost the Pop Duo Award to the Doobie Brothers.
This is a very enjoyable program, and very action packed for a 30 minute one. From what I understand about this program is that it is based on actual cases from the files of the US Treasury Department. The episode I saw was called "Case of the Shot in the Dark" with a very young Charles Bronson. This episode dealt with heroin smuggling and was a good one.
I had never heard of this series before and to think that I only got this for $1.00 at a store that sells everything for $1.00.
Too bad that they don't put the complete series out on DVD, as I would love to purchase more of these old 1950's shows.
