If by that time I have not had a response to the meet (no tickets have been sold) then this event will be canceled with little to no expectation of another being planned.

The Water Babies

Tomorrow night, Sept. 17th, the Family Network will be airing the Classic Nickelodeon Special Delivery "The Water Babies".

This is an awesome classic and one of my faves. It blends live-action with animation as they tell the story of Tom, a young chimney sweep, and his adventures to save his new friends The Water Babies.

From Wikipedia
When a 12-year-old chimney sweep is wrongfully blamed for being a thief, he makes a run for it, he jumps into a violent river. There he encounters a wondrous civilization of anthropomorphic underwater creatures. Before he can return to the surface and clear his name, however, he must help the Water Babies leave their enclosed lake and reach the free waters of the ocean. Featured voices include those of James Mason and Tommy Pender.

Can Yall Help?

The other day I had a bit of a revelation and I was wondering if yall could help me out?

While my mom and I were talking abut the fan meet I was telling her how I went to one of the local newspapers and took them the information about the fan meet and then it hit me. What I need is to get the word out about this fan meet otherwise I might get stuck paying for an empty room and that’s where yall come in. (Obviously I knew this before but this current idea just hit me while I was talking to her.)

The first newspaper that I went to told me that they are in association with nine (9) other newspapers so I started thinking about the newspaper in OKC and Tulsa and everywhere else. So my thought was that if yall could send me the names, phone numbers and possibly the email addresses of the newspapers in your cities I could email the same information to all of them and then it would be in newspapers all over the states!!!

So what do yall think? Think you could help me out with those names and phone numbers? It would really be a big help to me and it’s the cheapest way I can think of to advertise in as many different states and cities possible.

And on a side note we have kind of a community channel here where they have the time and date and tempter and so on and they post announcements about different activities going on all over town. Well Thursday or Friday I took them an announcement about the fan meet and I saw it today for the first time!!!
P.S. – If you don’t see this until after the fan meet no worries. Go ahead and send me the information anyway and I can still use it for next year! Thanks again!!!

Classic Nick Alert!!!

I’m sorry yall, I was going to try to get this information to you yesterday but we had a big storm come through and I had to unplug the computer. Then we wound up loosing power for over half an hour and this is the first chance I’ve had to get this to you.

There are a few Classic Nickelodeon programs coming on later today (Sept. 2nd) so if you haven’t seen them or don’t remember them or whatever here’s you’re chance to see them.

The first is the remake of the original “Tuck Everlasting” which is based on the book by Natalie Babbitt about a family that lives forever. (Personally I like the original better but the remake is still really good.) This was a Special Delivery on Nick around…’82…maybe a little later.

This is the story of a family that will live forever and of young love. It stars Alexis Blebel and William Hurtly and costars Sissy Spacek. All times given are for the CENTRAL TIME ZONE so you’ll need to check your local listings.

Filmed in 1985 this classic stars Ben Stiller as the giant, which is where the Classic Nick reference comes in.
