TV Land Awards


Did anyone else see the TV Land Awards on Sunday night? I've never seen them before, but I must say they were very entertaining. The show was hosted by everyone's favorite gay-of-the-moment, Neil Patrick Harris (above).

They honored many shows, but there were two highlights for me. First of all, they honored The Bundy's from Married With Children. They are still one of my favorite TV families of all time...


The other highlight was the honoring of Sid and Marty Kroft...


Sid and Marty were responsible for some of my favorite childhood shows, like Electro Woman and Dyna Girl, starring Diedre Hall...


Sigmund the Sea Monster - who made an appearance during the musical homage...


And my FAVORITE show as a child, H.R. Pufnstuf...




And the lesser-known Lidsville...


... which stared the late Charles Nelson Reilly (as well as Butch Patrick and Billie Hayes). Mr. Reilly once had a few drinks at my old haunt, Stella's. Surprisingly, he kept quietly to himself.


I will definitely make it a point to watch next year's TV Land Awards.

The Bundys, totally stole 'psychomom' from that show, yes psychodad was around first.

Loved HR Pufnstuf and crazy Witchiepoo.... "Oranges, Poranges, who says?"

And Charles Nelson Reilly, pure genius.
