You don’t have to be a Mia or Sofia…
This is what I love about YouTube. Things that I thought were lost to me forever reside in little niches and crannies over there. When I was very young I watched The Flying Nun religiously (I belonged to the Church of Alejandro Rey). There was a show that came on, I believe before the Flying Nun (maybe afterwards) called The Ugliest Girl in Town. And for the past 40 years or so, every so often the theme song to that show floats through my head and I feel compelled to sing it. I used to sound record (this was the sixties children – no VCR’s) the themes to shows and somewhere I still have a reel to reel sound recording of a Flying Nun episode (no not the Harlan Ellison one)* and the theme to The Ugliest Girl in Town. The person who posted this video over at YouTube went me one better, she filmed the beginning and end bits of the show. I didn’t have a film camera back then.
It was a silly premise and a silly show but it made an impression – its probably why I ended up watching Bosom Buddies too. …. yes, that’s right I’m a connoisseur of vintage bad t.v. shows – “bad” really is in the eye of the beholder.
Oh and by the way, you best be readin’ the above in yer pirate voice, or its the plank for ye! Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day, arrrrrrrr…….
