Oh man, I guess I'm the "Ancient Mariner" around here, huh?
I looked it up and I think it was only on the air for 2 or 3 years.... like '65 to '67 or '68.

Funny, when I type that out I realize how friggin long ago that was! I started high school in the Fall of '68. Bobby Kennedy had JUST been killed, so had MLK. But Vietnam was raging with no end in sight; body counts on TV every night. I just don't feel that old at 52 and yet.... so many things have changed since then.

Oh well, "Shrimpie" was hilarious...although I suspect if I could get copies of the tapes I'd probably not think so anymore.

Now, if anyone remembers the "Winchell-Mahoney Hour" with Paul Winchel and his dummies, Jerry Mahoney and Knucklehead Smiff but.........nah, that was even a couple of years earlier than Shrimpenstein!
