Is thirteen really unlucky ?
Hikaru & Andy had absolutely no truck with that particular question as they sallied forth into the 13th last TFC on Joy’s air.
They were far too busy dealing with Ludwig von Drake, amongst other things.
And from here to broadcasting eternity, TFC begins a series of vintage TV closedowns. Get ready for national anthems and strange imagery.
Following – Phenomenal Handclap Band
Bad & Beautiful – Neil Sedaka
Neil’s version was never released…and yet the license restriction stands, funny that — Hikaru.
Kids – Paul Lynde
Lynde was the campest of campy performers, but nobody questioned his role as a dad in “Bye Bye Birdie“. Ah the 60s.
Everybody’s Doing It – Evamore
The Steam Train – Ty Taylor
EBS Jingle – Unknown
