What, no love for The Venture Brothers? Only the greatest animated series of all time, featuring the most brilliant Scooby Doo parody ever, with the Mystery Machine gang as analogues of famous murderers:


Fred=Ted Bundy
Velma=Valerie Solanas
Daphne=Patty Hearst

Shaggy and Scooby=Son of Sam

The best part of UFO was the opening sequence:

Dig that jazzy score. I sure miss that from the shows of the mid-60's through the early 70's. Also it was set in futuristic 1980 !!

The best episode was the one where aliens used mind control via Tiki's hidden in a lunar cave. I think it was filmed at THE TIKIS in Monterey park. The ironic ending has Comm. Straker saying "We could have become Zombies !!" while sipping some unidentified beverage in a Tiki mug. Don't believe me, it's in episode 30.

Currently I'm watching the Honey West DVD collection, vintage 1970's porn, and Tiki Archeology starring some German guy who played guitar for the punk rock bank X.

Also regarding Scooby Doo, notice how Shaggy has become a style icon for East Hollywood/Silverlake/Echo Park hipsters ?

Yes the Venture Brothers is the Best show on Adult Swim, if you disagree I will get my Magic Murder Bag!
David Bowie is the "Sovereign" leader of the "Guild of Calamitous Intent"
Got it! don't make me call Dr. Girlfriend!

While I'm at it, check out these other cool intro themes by Barry Gray (who did the UFO theme).

Yes, UFO was cool but this was even cooler.

These were the shows that kids watched in the early 60's while their parents were getting sloshed at the neighborhood Tiki bar.

Don't forget Iggy Pop and Klaus Nomi as Bowie's henchmen.

O.K. just my opinion here, but Battlestar Galactica kicks Defying Gravity's ass all over the place, I mean it made it, it's Bitch.
I'm just saying.....

All shows from our childhood.

Question: Does 77 Sunset Strip have much location shooting of late 50's / early 60's LA? Also in Hawaiian Eye, does it show what early 60's Waikiki looked like (other than the Hilton)?

I'd love to see some authentic local flavor but it seems that most TV shows of that time were filmed at the studio.

Thanks

Atomic Tiki Punk,

You want to talk Film Noir? I started a new thread for that in "Beyond Tiki". Actually this thread probably belongs there too.

Check out "JOHN-O's Film Noir Thread" and share your feedback.

John-O, your on the Mark there, Billy Wilder was a driving force, Ace in the Hole is at the top of my list
Great, great movie, I do consider it Noir because of the Narrative, dialog & subject matter, Chuck Tatum was Kirk's best role
in my opinion, although "Detective Story" is very close.
