    Speaking of awards...... how many daytime Emmy's was Gene Rayburn nominated for during his run as Host of the Matchgame gameshow series??
    "Sally lost her _________ in the bathtub" HAHAHHAAAA, what a great show!! :lol:
    May Mr. Rayburn Rest in Peace.
  • Not meaning to be a spammer or anything here, but...... HELLOOOOOOO!?!?! Anyone care to take a guess at this one, or should I try another? :(
  • 50?

    After some review, it seems Mr. Rayburn was nominated and won, one time, in 1975.
  • Nope, not 50, not 1 and not 10. Will give it just a bit more time... maybe 'till tomorrow, and if no more guesses, then I'll just give the answer and try another one. KEEP TRYING!! :D
  • Ok, ya can slap me later....but I just had to give this a go! :unsure: Is it none???

  • I'll just post a random number
    2 :huh:
  • Bid, I'm sorry, but I reserve those slaps for Hubby Pooh!! :lol:

    Ok, since no one got it, I'll give it away...... it's FOUR!

    Let's try another, shall we?

    Who hosted "Death Valley Days" from 1965-1966?
  • In spite of what has come to be common knowledge from "I Was Born in East LA," it is not Ronald Reagan. It just happens to be the same guy who hosted it when it was the Borax 20 mule-team theatre..............Dale Robertson
  • Sorry my OLD compadre, but you are not entirely accurate..... Dale Robertson hosted it from 1968-1972!
  • Alright, it's been long enough....... and moved along to page two no less!! :o The correct answer is RONALD REGAN!! :P

    Now, would someone please give us something good in here!?
  • What is reported to be the King's favorite room in Graceland?
  • The one with the lawn-like carpet in it ?
    Or was it the toilet?
  • His room with something like 12 TV's?
  • Come on folks, we're talkin' about THE KING here!!!

    It had to be the KITCHEN!!!!!!! :lol:
  • One of your guesses is muy close-o, but what I'm after here is the name of that room (Ex. the boudoir may have been named "the boom-boom room").

  • Allright allright, made me going for a search
    Le jungle room
  • Now you're cookin' with gas. You go, Manne :D

    I'm not sure what this thread really is about anymore, I read the Intro by Lu and back then it seems to have been a quote quiz of some sort. however I think the "questions on trival subjects conserning the entertainment buisness" fits a worldwide audiens better. ;)

    How many times has James Brown (soulman) been arrested? (Goldstar if you know how many convictions he's got)
  • HEEYYYYY, I feel good!! :lol:

    James Brown
    8 Arrests, 3 Convictions, served a total of 5 years and 4 days. Man, it all started at the tender age of 15 when he was busted for stealing clothes out of someone's car!! :( Amazing to think of him starting there, and where he is now!!
  • Were is he now, on detox !? :blink:

    Come on sugar, do a split on that shiny new floor of yours.
  • The only 'split' I'd be able to do, on any surface is a
    banana split!! :lol:

    I've none in mind right now, so whoever is out there within the sound of my keyboard, please take the floor..... I think I've hurt myself trying to do that split that Manne requested! :blink:
  • OK then I'll take this chance then!!

    Alphonse Capone was one of the most infamous crime lords ever to be put on this earth (murder, theft, conspiracy, prohibtion laws broken, extortion etc.)but why was he sent to Alcatraz in end, and gold star if you tell me how he died.!.

    Give a line or two from a commercial/tv show or series from the days-gone-by, and try to guess what the show, series, or commercial was or was selling.

    Television show theme song:

    "Come and play with me, Jimmy
    Come and play with me
    And I will take you on a trip
    Far across the sea"

    -Topper :rolleyes:

  • I should have known a Geezer would have picked it. Correct as usual :D

    The floor is all buffed and waiting for you.

    Remember the old Frito commercials, with the Frito Bandito?? Who did the voice of the Frito Bandito??

  • Even though I have never heard of the Frito Bandito product, I am a fan of the Looney Tunes man responsible for his voice.

    Good Ole Mel Blanc :D

    That man was the master.

  • Yes, FJ, you are right..... and, you are right!!

    It was he, and he was the master!!! He set the standards that no one else, as of yet, has been able to reach, and I doubt anyone will! :( Why don't more people appreciate pure talent like that anymore!?!?

    Jeeeeezzzzzz, before I go waxing nostalgic, it's your turn!! :D

    So, I gave a line from a commercial/tv show or series from the days-gone-by and you try to guess what the show, series, or commercial was or was selling.

    Don't blame me if you don't know it. :cunning:

    But to help you all out, it was animated.

    I'll take a guess and say that came from Titan A.E. :huh:
  • Good guess Rex but not correct. I'll add a little more to it.

    Kudos to Charger for reading the first post!!

    Oh and that was from Star Blazers circa EARLY 1980's :disco:
  • Topper, you are correct as usual. I loved that show because after every episode the count down to save earth got shorter and shorter. You always wondered if they'd make it in time.

    Anyways, you got it! Well done!

  • Howze about this snippet from a theme song...

    "Flippin' like a pancake, poppin' like a cork"
  • Was it the Banana Splits? :woot:

    Adventure's waiting just ahead"
