Clusterfuck of Stars!


In this oddly compelling clip, coked-up dancers lead a cavalcade of stars through their television theme songs, with questionable results.

  2. You know what I hate? A musical number where Tom Wopat keeps his clothes on!

    1. For real!

      Oddly enough, there was a time when I would've loved to waltz with Richard Thomas. But I digress!

    1. She had a little too much Wessonality.

  4. Lorne Greene appears quite comfortable around those pony boys...

    2. Bravo, Thom, Bravo! I'm using that in my nightclub act.

    3. Nightclub act? Some sort of Rusty Warren tribute, I'd imagine.

  5. I have no clue who half these people are and what shows some of these songs come from - but, as always, Bea Arthur is worth it! And Dick Van Dyke is still alive. Jx

    1. In this case, what you don't know won't hurt you.

      And, of course, Bea Arthur ROCKS!

  6. Marlo Thomas is such a bitter disappointment.

    1. Such a bitter, sanctimonious, bitchy disappointment.

  7. Thoughts that went through my head watching this ...

    1. Carol Burnett looks fabulous in this clip.
    2. "Bonanza" had words?
    3. How many of these did Marilyn and Alan Bergman write?
    4. Linda Lavin can sing but does anyone want to hear her do it?
    5. I need to go back and listen to my Esther Rolle LP again.
    6. Richard Thomas was who I wanted at the door when I played Mystery Date.
    7. I know it wouldn't have been factually correct, but couldn't they have asked Sally Kellerman to sing "Suicide is Painless" instead of Loretta Swit?

    1. You raise some very valid and thought-provoking points.

      My question is: Did Dinah Shore refuse her allotment of safety gays? It would seem that having to walk down those stairs in heels would make them mandatory!

    2. #4 is the best single summation of the career of Linda Lavin that has ever been written. Absolutely masterful.

      And Richard Thomas was indeed dishy beyond all reason. I once had some interesting ideas about Will Geer and him in those red flannel union suits...

    3. Well then, Muscato, you will be interested in the last few seconds of this video clip!! http://youtu.be/z02-itgnsPI

      As an adolescent, I used to fantasize about John-Boy. And that was way before I had an inkling about actual sex. I may have to update those dreams!

      Of course you know about Will Geer's romantic involvement with Harry Hay. And Grandma Walton was a lavender lady, too!

  8. Holy Ensenada, Batman. Loretta trails off before the "suicide is painless" part. Was that Sir Gary Coleman in the front row finale? Esther Rolle, indeed. And Redd Foxx staring down the crowd with a where's my check look.

    1. It almost sounds like Loretta Swit's last line is "I realize that I can't sing". As if she had to tell us!

  9. Batman was so loaded, Redd Foxx seemed simply pissed off, and Carol Burnett sounded like she was miked with a tin can. Wow, Batman was fucked up.

    1. Seems we just get started, and before you know it...comes the time we have to smoke...a bong. Goodnight, everybody!

  10. That bitch Lassie upstaged everybody.

  11. did I miss Bert Convy and the Love Theme to Match Game?

  12. I think I saw Jamison Parker next to Charlotte Rae in her red sequins. He had a certain something back then.

    I would have appreciated a mash up of the Lassie theme and Lost In Space when the bitch came out on stage. With her dog.

    And speaking of June Lockhart, why didn't they bring out Mike Minor singing the Petticoat Junction theme song? It was hopelessly wrong but I always wanted to ride his little train when I was a not so confused teen.

    I think we all knew who the true 'tinsel on the tree' was when Marlo Thomas came out to That Girl!

  13. >>It was hopelessly wrong but I always wanted to ride his little train when I was a not so confused teen.<< I guess I'll wipe the coffee off my monitor now... LMMFAO!

    For me, the most humiliating one in this marching band of heinousness was the totally awkward and apparently rhythm and grace-free Gabe Kaplan!

  14. Um. Wow. I . . . well, I mean . . . uh.
