Here's a few new ones

A "A Soldier of Fortune is a man called..."

B "Today is Tuesday" (OOPS, Not a theme just the Tuesday Song) The theme sample is is "Hey There, Hi There Ho There"

C "Believe it or not its just me"

D " now you see on Camera three" edited to correct lyric slightly.

I only watched 'C' a few times, but there was I guy I worked with way back when (pre-Pension days).

he had gone out to Universal Studios, and was picked the day he was out there to 'demonstrate' how they made someone 'fly in the air'. nasty tune. once it gets in your head it goes on and on and on.

(By the way, I am hoping there are enough 'pathetic' TVland people for my ASPPA talk in July that remember Get Smart.)

Tom,

I don't know what made a bigger impression on me from Get Smart, Agent 99 or the Sunbeam Tiger Maxwell drove.

For me, it's always been the shoe phone.

Well Tom,

From the comments, it appears that at least a few of us in the community have been devotees of the show. I hope your audience reflects the same.

BTW

Any takers on a-d above and the remaining from the original list ???

well, I have worked the shoe phone into the presentation.

Guess I will have to modify my talk in Washington in the fall to include the 'Get Smart' stuff.
