Taking A Small Break

Hey guys, I don't really want to get into a long drawn out post but I'm going to take a small break from posting. Yesterday (Monday 11-16-15) I found out my cat Cece had cancer and they were not going to be able to save her.  Then a little while ago I got a call from the vet, she said she has seen a shift in Cece's attitude and asked if I could come and pick her up tomorrow. Physically I am not able to drive up there tomorrow, I need to rest b/c it's 45 minutes away, so I will pick her up on Friday.

Then on Saturday I will be working with the Mission to help provide a community Thanksgiving meal for everyone who would like to attend so I will be very busy. But I was just thinking, the Halloween videos seemed to work out pretty well so maybe i can find some old Thanksgiving day parade videos to post for you. And if I can find any clips of Turkey Television I will post those as well but it won't be till next week. 

Thank you for understanding,
Peggy Sue

Special Delivery – Tuck Everlasting

Special Delivery – Tuck Everlasting

Most people are familiar with the 2002 Disney remake of this film but chances are that most of the people who watched it have never seen the original film from 1981. Both films are based on Natalie Babbitt's 1975 children's book of the same title.

The story revolves around Winnie Foster, a girl from a well-bred, strait-laced, upper-class family who feels suffocated and longs to make her own choices in life. One day while she is taking a walk in the woods her father owns she meets Jessie Tuck, a young man with a secret. Soon they are met by Jessie’s mother and brother; as they begin to talk they hear Winnie’s mother calling for her. Afraid outsiders will discover their secret they kidnap Winnie to protect their secret but not before they run into the man in the yellow suit.

Who is he and what is his connection with the Tuck family? Find out in the original 1981 version of “Tuck Everlasting.”

Margaret Chamberlain.....Winnie Foster
Paul Flessa.....Jesse Tuck
Fred A. Keller.....Angus Tuck
James McGuire.....Man in the Yellow Suit
Sonia Raimi.....Mae Tuck
Marvin Macnow.....Mr. Foster
Bruce D'Auria.....Miles Tuck

Costumes & Stones

With Halloween just around the corner I’d like to share some with you some of the items sent in by our wonderful fans.

These amazing costumes were created by Bianca Gallagher as “Valerie” and Brent Frattini as “Barth” who live in Providence, Rhode Island. Both characters are from one of the most famous Classic Nickelodeon shows ever produced, “You Can't Do That On Television”. Photo used with permission.

Recently I became the new owner of the F/B group “Bring back Double Dare” and discovered this terrific email in the archives!

Hey there- We are presently in second place in the Halloween costume contest. It would be greatly appreciated if you could share or post the link on your facebook page.  We rocked the Double Dare costume Thanks so much in advance!

Now, the title of this blog is “Costumes & Stones.” You’ve seen the costumes, now see the stones!

These awesome pictures were sent to me from my friend Andrew Kerbs who recently, “I visited Avebury England the haunted site of that Nickelodeon miniseries The Third Eye.”  Here is a copy of the email he sent me along with the pictures and all I can say is, he’s a brave man!

Peggy - Here are the pictures of the standing stones at Avebury from that Nick show The Third Eye. Rumor has it one of the stones tries crossing the street. There was a creepy eeriness the day we visited the stones. - Andrew

Thank you to all of you who sent in these wonderful pictures and allowing me to post them. If any of you have pictures of yourself in Classic Nickelodeon costumes or if you’ve visited a famous filming site or perhaps you’ve met some of the Classic Nick stars, created some artwork, fan films, anything that’s family friendly, please don’t be shy about sending them in I’d love to post them for our fans to enjoy!
