Throwing Little Thought Pebbles at Your Windshield Since 1996

I Love a High Concept Television Show

When we were kids, we just loved all the Krofft televisions shows, didn’t we? We never questioned them, either. Just love them and loved them.

I just found the opening credits to a show that I literally haven’t seen since it went off the air, Bigfoot and Wildboy. Think about the pitch meeting for this one: “Okay, so you’ve got Bigfoot, right? He’s really strong because, well, he’s Bigfoot. And he finds this kid and raises him, and his name is Wildboy. So they are Bigfoot and Wildboy, having adventures, preventing crime, you know. Oh, and Wildboy wears a leather Tarzan-like outfit, but Bigfoot can be totally naked because, well, he’s Bigfoot.”

“I love it! You’re a genius! Why hasn’t anyone ever thought to do a Bigfoot and his adopted son series before? You keep an eye on your paycheck for a nice bonus!”

    Um, ya, hey, thanks! You too! And Happy Belated Birthday! (Did the other entry not appear for you? That’s odd, I published it about an hour ago. Maybe your comment pushed it through the playdoe fun factory known as blogger.)
