The Munsters TV show

The Munsters TV show was a 30 minute comedy series on CBS about a family of monster-like characters that didn’t realize that they were different from “normal” people. The father looked remarkably like the Frankenstein monster. His wife appeared to be a vampire. His son looked like a “wolf-boy”. There was the niece, however, who was perfectly normal. While they were very nice “monsters”, their neighbors were naturally quite fearfull of them and their strange ways.

Shirley Temple Black (born April 23, 1928),

 

is an American film and television actress, singer, dancer, autobiographer, and former U.S. Ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia. She began her film career in 1932 at the age of four (thought by the public to be three) and in 1934, skyrocketed to superstardom in Bright Eyes, a feature film designed specifically for her talents.

She received a special Academy Award in February 1935, and film hits such as Curly Top and Heidi followed year after year during the mid to late 1930s.

Her box office popularity waned as she reached adolescence, and she left the film industry at the age of 12 to attend high school. She appeared in a few films of varying quality in her mid to late teens, and retired completely from films in 1950 at the age of 22. She was the top box-office draw four years in a row (1935–38) in a Motion Picture Herald poll

 

Temple returned to show business in 1958 with a two-season television anthology series of fairy tale adaptations. She made guest appearances on various television shows in the early 1960s and filmed a sitcom pilot that was never released. She sat on the boards of many corporations and organizations including The Walt Disney Company, Del Monte Foods, and the National Wildlife Federation. In 1967, she ran unsuccessfully for United States Congress, and was appointed United States Ambassador to Ghana in 1974 and to Czechoslovakia in 1989. In 1988, she published her autobiography, Child Star. Temple is the recipient of many awards and honors including Kennedy Center Honors and a Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award.

Bill Keane

William Aloysius Keane (October 5, 1922 – November 8, 2011), better known as Bil Keane, was an American cartoonist notable for his work on the long-running newspaper comic The Family Circus, which began its run in 1960 and continues in syndication.

Keane is a four-time recipient of the National Cartoonists Society’s Award for Best Syndicated Panel, winning in 1967, 1971, 1973 and 1974.Then in 1982, Keane was named the Society’s Cartoonist of the Year and received its top honor, the Reuben Award.[8] He also received the Elzie Segar Award in 1982 for his unique contribution to the cartooning profession. Keane was honored with the Silver T-Square Award from the National Cartoonist Society in 2002 for “outstanding dedication” to the NCS and the cartooning profession.

In 1998, he became the tenth recipient of the Arizona Heritage Award, joining—among others—Barry Goldwater, Sandra Day O’Connor, Mo Udall and Erma Bombeck.

Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Keane taught himself to draw while attending Northeast Catholic High School by mimicking the style of the cartoons published in The New Yorker. His first cartoon was published on May 21, 1936 on the amateur page of the Philadelphia Daily News. While in high school, his in-comic signature spelled his name “Bill Keane”, but early in his career, he omitted the second L from his first name “to be distinctive”.

Keane served in the U.S. Army from 1942 to 1945, drawing for Yank and creating the “At Ease with the Japanese” feature for the Pacific edition of Stars and Stripes. While stationed in Australia he met Thelma “Thel” Carne.Bil and Thel were married in Brisbane in 1948 and settled in Roslyn, Pennsylvania. Thel, the inspiration for the “Mommy” character in his long-running strip, died on May 23, 2008 from complications due to Alzheimer’s Disease.[4][5] They have five children, Gayle, Neal, Glen, Christopher and Jeff. Glen works as an animator.

He worked for the Philadelphia Bulletin as a staff artist from 1946 to 1959, where he launched his first regular comic strip Silly Philly. His first syndicated strip, Channel Chuckles, premiered in 1954 and ran until 1977.

In 1959, the Keane family moved to Paradise Valley, Arizona. His daily newspaper panel The Family Circus premiered on February 29, 1960.

Keane was the president of the National Cartoonists Society from 1981 to 1983 and was the emcee of the Society’s annual awards banquet for 16 years.

From 1981 to 1983, Bil published the gag strip Eggheads in collaboration with his son Jeff, who now draws and writes The Family Circus and continues the comic legacy with his own unique insight and humor. Like his father, Jeff Keane has been president of the National Cartoonists Society (NCS), serving two consecutive terms (four years). The NCS is the organizing body that honors cartoonists with the coveted Reuben Awards.

Keane died on November 8, 2011 at his home in Paradise Valley, Arizona (near Phoenix), at 89, from congestive heart failure

Leave It to Beaver 1957-1963


 

Leave It to Beaver is an American television situation comedy about an inquisitive but often naïve boy named Theodore “Beaver” Cleaver and his adventures at home, in school, and around his suburban neighborhood. The show also starred Barbara Billingsley and Hugh Beaumont as Beaver’s parents, June and Ward Cleaver, and Tony Dow as Beaver’s brother Wally. The show has attained an iconic status in the United States, with the Cleavers exemplifying the idealized suburban family of the mid-twentieth century.

Leave It to Beaver is a glimpse at middle-class, white American boyhood. In a typical episode Beaver got into some sort of trouble, then faced his parents for reprimand and correction. However, neither parent was omniscient; indeed, the series often showed the parents debating their approach to child rearing, and some episodes were built around parental gaffes.

Comprising six full 39-week seasons (234 episodes), the show had its debut on CBS on October 4, 1957, and then moved to ABC the following year, completing its run on June 20, 1963. Although television production was transitioning from black-and-white to color in the latter years of the show’s run, the series continued to be shot with a single camera on black-and-white 35mm film.[1] The show’s production companies included comedian George Gobel‘s Gomalco Productions (1957–1961) and Kayro Productions (1961–1963) with filming at Revue Studios/Republic Studios and Universal Studios in Los Angeles, California.
