Rock and Roll Matches

Began a sunny morning with breakfast and Doc McStuffins. Space toys Commander Crush and Star Blazer Zero are "Space Buddies Forever!" They even work together to rescue the Wicked King after he's carried off by a crow. Doc's crew learn about organ donations when Commander Crush has an accident and loses the screws from one of his wings and Zero offers him two of his. Astronaut Luna is hoping her new robot dog Liv will "Live Long and Pawsper." Doc insists that Liv wear a cone after one of her antenna breaks off. Luna hates to see how hard the cone makes it for Liv to explore, but it makes it even harder for her to not break her antenna again.

Headed off to work shortly after the episode ended. Pretty much the same deal here, only this time, it was quiet enough in the morning and later in the afternoon for me to get most of the outside trash done. I did get stuck briefly in a register around 12:30, but was otherwise able to focus on bagging. Helped a lady going through chemotherapy who was really tired with her bags. She was so happy, she gave me a big hug and tried to tip me. You're not allowed to tip baggers in New Jersey - it's a state law - but helping her out and making her happy was better payment than any money would have been. 

Oh, and I heard from Mary Johnson, the realtor who showed me the apartment in Collingswood after a mix-up, at work. The apartment on Bettlewood was already snapped up after just a few days on the market, but the ones on the White Horse Pike in Audubon were still available. I'll see them at 3 PM tomorrow. E-mailed another apartment in Collingswood as well later in the evening after I got in.

When I got home, I changed, ordered vegetable pizza, and went straight into the next Betty White/Match Game marathon. Match Game was so popular, by 1975, Goodson-Todman began a second show for the nighttime syndicated market. It was just as much of a hit as the afternoon version. Betty joined the others for some of the most memorable moments ever on any version of Match Game.

I've discussed Richard and the Admiral TV answer on the Audience Match and Betty and Richard playing Charles and Brett elsewhere. Other classic shows from Betty's early years on the nighttime run include an awkward and scary answer to "The Third ___" on an Audience Match that renders that episode banned from TV, an adorable twinkly-eyed older man contestant who had a crush on Brett, a previously lost episode with Eva Gabor Buzzr aired last year for the first time since 1977, a Fillipino contestant in beautiful native dress looking better than she plays, and a bubbly British contestant in a low-cut Match Game PM shirt that definitely got Richard's attention. 

Let's go into the night with Betty and the other Match Gamers as they reveal how much fun you can have after hours! And come back tomorrow at 6 PM for more of the best of Betty on Match Game PM

Finished the night with Rock n' Roll High School Forever. I go further into the direct-to-video sequel to Rock n' Roll High School from 1991 featuring Corey Feldman as an anarchic musician at my Musical Dreams Movie Reviews blog.
