  • R.I.P. to Jerry Granelli, a jazz drummer who worked for Vince Guaraldi, one such credential being a certain special that was "the Charlie Browniest".

    He was the last living member of the music trio involved with the special, following the deaths of Guaraldi in 1976 and bassist Fred Marshall in 2001.

    Earlier this week, I realized there's both Chris Diamantopoulos (one of the modern portrayers of Moe Howard and Mickey Mouse) and Dino Stamatopoulos (writer, producer, actor and creator of shows like Moral Orel). For a while, I've confused them for the same person, likely because of the sort-of similar names.
    For all its grand status on the Cartoon Network schedule, Gumball doesn't have much for episodes on DVD, at least in Region 1. The last new releases were in late 2014: Vol. 4, with the first 12 episodes from Season 2, and a CN holiday collection, which included the Christmas episode (also from S2).

    It would be quite strange for CN to not shoot for that, or at least a reasonable equivalent. Maybe when it's time to hype the movie?
    Not long after Gavin MacLeod, television producer Douglas S. Cramer has passed away today at 89; he worked on The Love Boat, as well as Mission Impossible, Batman, Star Trek, The Brady Bunch, Dynasty, Wonder Woman and Dallas.
    Buzzr has updated their look, showing the transition at ~8PM tonight, between Sale of the Century and Classic Concentration. It should be noted that the channel is celebrating its sixth anniversary this month.
    Last night, I had on the old game show Tattletales on Buzzr. It included an episode with Lorenzo Music and his wife Henrietta from 1975 (apparently the last one, as the next episode had a different lineup of celebrity couples).

    I've read about them appearing on the show for one week a while ago, but this was the first time I saw any of those episodes.

    Hal Lockwood, an artist at Soundac (the Miami-based studio best known for Colonel Bleep; Lockwood also worked on things like the Weather Man interstitials), previously had a stint at Fleischer Studios (also based in Miami in its later years). He was a colorist for Gulliver's Travels.

    Lockwood also worked on at least one comic book story for Timely Comics (a predecessor of Marvel Comics): Awful Oscar, with Stan Lee contributing.

    MeTV went off the air for about 15 minutes, right during one of the last Svengoolie segments up until it was time for the news (which I get in my area instead of Star Trek).

    I get feeds for Boston and New Hampshire (I live in southern NH), both of which were off during that time. Regional, maybe?
    I decided not to get any candy for Easter this year, mostly since I still had most of what I got on Christmas left over.

    Yeah, I'm pretty bad (or good?) with procrastination.
    I don't know if I'll be doing much, if any, April Fool stuff on here (my avatar notwithstanding). I did, however, do something for the Garfield Wiki on its Facebook page.

    I've been all day. Timezone perks.

    Author Norton Juster, best known for the 1960s children's books The Phantom Tollbooth and The Dot and the Line, has passed away at the age of 91 due to complications from a stroke.

    Both books were adapted into animated features by Chuck Jones at MGM, with The Dot and The Line winning an Academy Award.

    BTW, what forum should be used to talk about books? I wasn't sure where to put this.

    Cafe Subforum. I could've sworn we had a general thread to memorialize deceased artists and celebs.

    Thanks. I didn't see "books" in the description for Cafe, but I did see "ereaders", so I guess that's good enough.
