Flipper is on...
Just turned on the tube and found Flipper on channel 49! This is an Old Milwaukee moment for me... Just doesn't get any better than this. Twelve hours into Thanksgiving vacation, packing up to sail to Beaufort with the family in the morning, and now Flipper is on TV...

I remember Flipper very very well..

we also had a series called Skippy the Bush Cangaroo, did you guys have that in the US??

I also liked The Ropers, Mr. Ed, and Archie Bunker...those were great shows..

those shows beat my miles the present sorry un-funny sad depressive lack of intelect allways the same crap shows like Krammer, Friends, Raymond...and such....

This is the best of the best... Here's the story... Dad can't read the charts and is lost on his boat by himself, while mom is marooned on an island is the Carib with her two teenage daughters. Mom wears Capri pants, turtleneck and Gilligan boat shoes. Flipper and his buddy stuff the crab pots to keep the girls fed. The boy wears a yellow rubber mask, and dives for 20-30 minutes at a time, grabbing onto Flipper's dorsal fin...

Were the rumors true regarding Flipper and Mom?

Whoaaa! You're good! "Daktari" it is... I didn't know the title, but that is it indeed...

I just PM'd TrueBlue to tell him to stop working and start watching TV. He writes back that he's got to work! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
