Classic TV Shows
The TV in the Daily Doo Wop Rec Room has several selections of classic TV shows from the golden age of telelvision. These were available from March 30 to April 3, 2014. Now you can click on the links for the free video downloads. We update the selections twice a week, so stay tuned!
- The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis “Here Comes the Groom,” which is Season 1, Episode 37. It first aired on June 21, 1960. Dobie’s heart has been broken too many times, so he decides to marry old standby Zelda Gilroy over the objections of his best buddy, Maynard G. Krebs (“Married!!”). Dobie’s mom and dad are afraid that withholding permission will make the kids elope, and Zelda’s parents follow suit. This leads reluctant Dobie and Zelda to the altar, with Justice of the Peace Jethro R. Wiggins played by character actor Burt Mustin (best known as Gus in Leave It To Beaver). Is this it for Dobie? 22:29.
- The cartoon “Ding Dong Daddy” from Merrie Melodies (1942). Willoughby the sad dog (voice by Pinto Colvig) falls madly in love with a metal statue of a girl dog standing in a garden, not realizing that “Daisy” is only a statue. Whenever Willoughby kisses Daisy, lightning strikes her tail, giving him an electric shock, which he takes as a sign of her passion. When Daisy is hauled away in a World War II “Scrap Metal For Victory” truck, Willoughby runs to the local armory, calling for Daisy. He finds that she has been turned into a bomb labeled “Daisy.” He cries, “Oh, what have they done to you? They’ve changed you!” and gives the bomb a big kiss just as it explodes in his face,. He cries out happily, “WOW! She hasn’t changed a bit!” 08:21. Click here.
- A vintage commercial of the Bosco Bear (mascot) in “The Cowboy.”This commercial aired in the early 1960s. It features Bosco Bear and the “Bosco Drinks His Bosco” song. “That’s Bosco Milk Amplifier made by an exclusive process that gives you…Extra Energy! It’s so easy to mix. And Bosco is DOUBLE CHOCOLATY. It’s rich in vitamin D and muscle-building iron.” 01:02. Click here.
For Golden Oldies Music
The Daily Doo Wop Rec Room has daily featured doo wop, rock and roll, R&B, or rockabilly songs that were hits during the first era of rock and roll (that is, from about 1952 until the British invasion in 1964). After a song is featured, it then goes into the juke box. You are welcome to listen to any of the 40+ selections there. Every weekend, there is a Golden Oldies Juke Box Saturday Night, and the juke box is full of song requests from the 1950s and 1960s.
